Apple’s rough month continues. In June hackers blew the security off 1.4BN iPhones and iPads, Apple was fined due to missed iPhone estimates and the company’s stunning 2020 iPhone gave users doubts about upgrading to the ugly 2019 model. And now those fears have been realized.
In a new exclusive, hugely popular YouTuber Filip Koroy (aka EverythingApplePro) has managed to attain local iPhone 11 cases and they serve only to confirm users’ worst fears about the shock removal of Apple’s head designer Jonathan Ive.
Achieved via a Chinese supply chain source, Koroy declares “I had to buy about 100” to get access to them. But what the cases reveal are the cases fit perfectly inside molds from leaked schematics. So yes, the leaks were right, Apple is indeed going to give the iPhone 11 its most provocative redesign in a decade. That means the large notch stays in a notch-less, bezel-less era and the phones will still have the largest camera point in iPhone history – despite losing their cutting edge tech at the last minute.
In addition to this, the reversed mute switch redesign is happening and the new iPhones are going to be thicker (and presumably) heavier despite the 208 g (7.34 oz) iPhone XS Max already being the heaviest flagship smartphone in the world. In fact, the only positive is the cases don’t close the door completely on Apple’s seemingly accidental iOS 13 leak showing a move to USB-C.
