Likelihood: Almost Certain
To be clear, Apple will launch new iPhones in 2019. What we’re debating here is what these iPhones will actually look like.
According to Kuo, there will be three iPhones on offer: 5.8-inch and 6.5-inch OLED models and a 6.1-inch LCD model. If that sounds familiar, it’s because it’s exactly like 2018’s iPhones. All three will have the same notch area as the existing iPhones, as well.
However, the new iPhones will finally ditch the Lightning port charger for a USB-C plug (copying the latest iPad Pros). They’ll also feature frosted glass on the rear, just like the Google Pixel 3 XL, and improved tech to make location services and navigation better while indoors.
Interestingly, Kuo also reckons that the new iPhones will offer triple cameras. Whether all the models will get three lenses isn’t clear, but it would certainly suggest that Apple wants to really take the camera fight to Google and Samsung in 2019-2020.
So, to recap. Apple will drop new AirPods, three new iPhones, an updated Apple Watch, maybe a new iPod Touch and two new iPads. However, it probably won’t launch a big new MacBook Pro.
