Alleged CAD Images of Apple's 2019 iPhones Surface Online

The first alleged leaked CAD renders of Apple's 2019 iPhones appeared on Slashleaks this morning. Smartphone CAD images shared online are usually touted as official designs leaked from production factories and are often used by case makers to predict the design of unreleased devices. Alleged "iPhone XI" CAD Regardless of the authenticity of these renders, they do line up with rumors regarding the company's upcoming flagship smartphones and serve as a reminder of what to expect from the devices, likely to be launched in September. Rumors suggest the successors of the iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, and iPhone XR will again be 5.8 and 6.5-inch OLED iPhones along with a 6.1-inch LCD iPhone, respectively. The 5.8 and 6.5-inch iPhone XS and XS Max successors are expected to feature triple-lens cameras, while the LCD iPhone will use a dual-lens camera setup, as depicted in the rear square patches on the top-left of the devices. Alleged "iPhone XI Max" CAD The camera bump has proven quite controversial since it was first leaked by OnLeaks in January, with many criticizing the look of both the bump itself and the positioning of the camera lenses within the bump. Some have also questioned why the successor to the iPhone XR would have a square bump for a dual-lens setup when a pill-shaped bump is used on the iPhone X, iPhone XS, and iPhone XS Max, although Apple may simply be adopting it to draw a distinction with previous models and maintain consistency across the new line-up.

2019 OLED iPhone Case Renders Mirror Leaked Design

Third-party case renders for Apple's 2019 OLED iPhone lineup appeared on Slashleaks this morning. The images match previous alleged leaks suggesting the successor devices to the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max will feature rear triple-lens cameras in a triangular array and housed within a square bump. Case manufacturers often create renders of iPhones ahead of their debut in order to be the first to come out with accessories for the newly launched devices. These kinds of leaks are often accurate because there's a lot of money at stake, but that's not to say there can sometimes be costly errors. These case images come with no accompanying information, so there's no way to know for sure whether or not the design accurately portrays what Apple's 2019 OLED iPhones will look like. However, The Wall Street Journal has confirmed that Apple is planning on introducing a triple-lens camera system in at least one of the new iPhones coming this year. In addition, Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has said both the 5.8 and 6.5-inch OLED iPhones will feature triple-lens rear camera setups with a 12-megapixel telephoto lens, a 12-megapixel wide-angle lens, and a 12-megapixel super wide-angle lens. We don't yet know what Apple will call the new iPhones, but "iPhone XI" or "iPhone 11" are possibilities for the iPhone XS successors.

Upcoming 2018 iPad Pro Could Be 5.9mm Thick With No Headphone Jack

Apple's upcoming iPad Pro could be one of its thinnest devices yet, measuring in at just 5.9mm thick, based on details shared by a leaker on Twitter who previously provided accurate details on the iPhone XS and XR ahead of launch. According to Twitter user CoinCoin, the upcoming iPad Pro will measure in at just 5.9mm, and due to its thinness, there will be no room for Apple to include a headphone jack. Of course no headphone jack on the upcoming new iPad. 5.9mm thickness is pretty good though.— CoinCoin (@coiiiiiiiin) October 12, 2018 The 5.9mm estimate matches up with alleged iPad Pro dimensions shared yesterday on Slashleaks, which suggested the new iPad Pro would measure 5.86mm thick. It is also in line with current iPad Pro measurements. The existing 10.5-inch iPad Pro is 6.1mm thick, so it would make sense for a new model to be somewhat thinner. It's likely the 5.9mm estimate applies to the smaller of the two 2018 iPad Pro models that Apple is expected to introduce, which could be somewhere around 10.5 to 11 inches in size. Apple's current 12.9-inch iPad Pro is thicker than the 10.5-inch version, measuring in at 6.9mm thick. The iPad Pro dimensions shared on Slashleaks yesterday suggest the smaller iPad Pro will be 7 inches wide (178.52mm) and 9.7 inches tall (247.64mm), while the larger model will be 8.5 inches wide (215mm) and 11 inches tall (280.66mm). We've seen similar dimension estimates in earlier rumors from Japanese site Mac Otakara, suggesting the smaller iPad Pro will measure in at 247.5mm tall, 178.7mm wide, and 6mm thick, while

Apple Watch Series 4 Front Panel Depicted in Alleged Leaked Image

With anticipation mounting ahead of Apple's imminent product announcements later today, Slashleaks has shared an image of an alleged front panel belonging to the upcoming Apple Watch Series 4, which a leak this morning revealed will come in 40mm and 44mm sizes. Although it's hard to verify from the image alone, we do expect the new model to feature a display that's 15 percent larger than the one on the Apple Watch Series 3, a change implemented through a reduction in the size of the bezels of the device. The larger display sizes will provide more room on the screen for apps and allow more space for watch faces. Apple is expected to introduce at least one new watch face with support for up to nine complications. The resolution of the new 40mm Apple Watch is still unknown, but data found within a beta version of watchOS 5 suggests the 44mm version will feature a resolution of 384x480, up from 312x390 in the current 42mm Apple Watch models. Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo believes all Series 4 models will feature rear case ceramic, and potentially come with electrocardiography (ECG/EKG) functionality. A leaked marketing image suggests the Apple Watch Series 4 will look similar to the Series 3, with no major design changes. As far as we know, that should ensure Apple Watch Series 4 models will continue to be compatible with existing Apple Watch bands. Apple's "Gather Round" event will kick off today at 10:00 a.m. Pacific Time, with Apple planning to live stream the product unveiling on its event website and through the Events app on the Apple TV.

Possible 'iPhone 8' SIM Tool Packaging is Consistent With Rumors of Narrow Bezels and Front Camera Notch

A new picture of an alleged packaging insert for the so-called iPhone 8's SIM-eject tool has been shared on Chinese microblogging service Sina Weibo. The image was then submitted to leak aggregator Slashleaks today. The insert includes a generic diagram of what is supposedly the iPhone 8. If legitimate, the smartphone's design is consistent with rumors, which suggest it'll be almost entirely screen on the front, beyond narrow, uniform bezels along the edges and a tiny notch for the front camera and sensors. It's almost August, when mass production of Apple's next iPhones would normally be underway, ahead of their usual September launch. However, recent reports suggest the iPhone 8 may be running several weeks behind. Some analysts believe the device may not begin shipping whatsoever until at least October. Make sure to read our comprehensive iPhone 8 roundup, which is updated regularly with the latest information and rumors about what could be Apple's most significantly redesigned smartphone

Possible Leak Suggests Next iPhone SE or iPhone 7s Could Have Strengthened Ion-X Glass Display

A new photo depicting what could be the rear shell for the next-generation iPhone SE or "iPhone 7s" has surfaced on Chinese social network Sina Weibo. The photo was later submitted to leak aggregator Slashleaks. There's no way of telling whether this photo is real or not, but it appears to show a bump-less cutout for a single-lens camera with another cutout for what might be a vertically-aligned LED flash. The document in the photo suggests the iPhone, codenamed N79, could have a strengthened Ion-X glass display like the Apple Watch. If real, the paperwork likely belongs to one of Apple's contract manufacturing partners in Taiwan, such as Foxconn, Pegatron, or Wistron. There's not much else that can be gleaned from the photo, asides from what appears to be more of an iPhone 7-like design, which would be a shift away from an iPhone 5s design if this is indeed for the iPhone SE as Slashleaks suggests. This would be the first next-generation iPhone SE design rumor we've seen so far this year, so treat it with a healthy dose of skepticism. Last year, KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo said Apple is unlikely to release a new iPhone SE in the first half of 2017, suggesting a refresh won't occur before the end of June. If that timeline is accurate, Apple could be planning to announce the next iPhone SE alongside the tentatively named iPhone 7s, iPhone 7s Plus, and iPhone 8 in September. Or, it could wait until spring 2018, given the original iPhone SE launched in March 2016. At this point, it's too early to say. Apple doubled the iPhone SE's storage capacities
