Leaked Photos of Alleged 2019 iPhone Logic Board Surface

Apple is widely expected to introduce three new iPhones in September, and ahead of time, photos of an alleged logic board for at least one of the upcoming devices have surfaced on Slashleaks.


The logic board has a rectangular design, so we assume it belongs to the 2019 successor to the iPhone XR, as the iPhone XS and ‌iPhone XS‌ Max have L-shaped logic boards. The board appears to have been manufactured in early March based on its "1019" date code, which corresponds to the 10th week of 2019.

Only one side of the logic board is printed. While the layout of the chips and circuitry looks quite different from the current ‌iPhone XR‌ logic board, we cannot gather any specific changes from the photos.


The next ‌iPhone XR‌ is expected to feature a dual-lens rear camera system, new green and lavender colors, and 4GB of RAM. The device is also expected to feature up to a six percent larger battery to accomodate a two-way wireless charging feature rumored to be coming to all three 2019 iPhones.

I can tell from these leaked photos that the internals will consist mainly of computer parts.

iPhone XS Max: 3.735 GB of DRAM

iPhone XS: 3.754 GB of DRAM

iPhone XR: 2.813 GB of DRAM

iPhone X: 2.823 GB of DRAM

iPhone 8+: 2.989 GB of DRAM

iPhone 7+: 3.000 GB of DRAM

The 2nd-Gen XR will likely be a "pseudo" 4 GB DRAM device, just like the XS & XS Max.

Apple corrected the RAM issue in the X when they Released the XS.

Apple will very-likely correct the RAM issue in the XR when they Release the 2nd-Gen XR.

The iPhone X & XR act like ~1.8 GB DRAM devices, when compared to the 7+, which acts like a "true" 3 GB device !

If Cook & Schiller had ANY Software Dev experience, they would NOT have made those mistakes.

Also, if there was even a single EE or Software Dev on the Apple Board, Apple as a company would NOT have made those mistakes !

Lack of RAM in the X & XR are HUGE Blunders, IMO !

"The Good, the Bad, & the Ugly" (Rating System) is way overdue ! ... but, better Late than Never !

I guess mostly enthusiast will be upgrading. From what I see in the real world, most are hanging on to their older iPhone. Apples biggest competition is itself.

I’m pretty much skipping upgrades until iOS no longer supports my X.

Same here. I think that the X really fulfills all needs and wants I have. Better camera is tempting, but not enough to make me pay $x,xxx.

Do people buy iPhones just for the camera?


Look at Apple’s marketing, what’s the number one thing that they market for the iPhone? (Rhetorical) It’s the camera. It’s also probably the most popular feature on an iPhone, so in theory, I’d say the camera can be a fairly compelling upgrade, _if_ the consumer sees the value.

C’mon people still complaining about the added cameras?
People, if you don’t want more features or cameras, stay with your old phone. No one is making you buy a new phone. Keep your old phone and stop whining.
