6 Reasons to Wait for the 2019 iPhone & 7 Reasons Not To

Published

on

Apple’s new iPhones are excellent options, but some of you might want to skip the iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, and iPhone XR in favor of Apple’s rumored 2019 models.

In September Apple launched two new iPhones. One is a 5.8-inch successor to the iPhone X dubbed iPhone XS. The other is a larger 6.5-inch iPhone X Plus dubbed iPhone Xs Max.

Apple’s third phone is a cheaper 6.1-inch LCD model called iPhone XR. The iPhone XR comes in a variety of colors and features a cheaper price point.

Those of you in the market for a new phone would be wise to go hands-on with Apple’s new iPhones before buying (or waiting to buy) your next phone. Others might want to start thinking about waiting for this year’s crop of iPhones.

We’re probably nine months away from most of the 2019 iPhone announcements, but we’ve already seen several credible rumors emerge as we push away from the iPhone XS launch into 2019.

The company’s new iPhones will reportedly feature a new A13 processor, a new camera setup, OLED (and LCD) displays without 3D Touch and Apple Pencil support.

Rumors claim the new 2019 iPhones will ditch Lightning in favor of USB-C like Apple’s new iPad Pro models. A separate report claims the company will keep Lightning as the standard. Look for this to get cleared up closer to launch.

Apple’s 2019 phones are still in development which means plans can and likely will change before they are unveiled to the public, but there are already some great reasons to think about waiting for the 2019 models.

In this guide we’ll take you through reasons to consider waiting and also some reasons to think about settling on another device in in the first half of this year.

Wait for a Smaller Notch

Wait for a Smaller Notch

There's no escaping the notch right now. 

Apple's new iPhones employ a notch that's similar to the notch found on the iPhone X. The notch houses important sensors, but it's drawn the ire of many smartphone users due to its intrusiveness. 

If you aren't a huge fan of the notch you'll want to consider waiting for this year year's models and here's why. 

According to reports, there's a chance the 2019 iPhones come with true edge-to-edge displays. In other words, no notches on the display. 

The reports claim the devices will still keep Face ID, but it's unclear how Apple would accomplish this without the notch. 

Even if Apple does decide to keep the notch around on this year' iPhone models, it could be much smaller on the next batch of iPhones

Apple is reportedly exploring ways to combine Face ID and the front-facing camera which could reduce the size of the notch.

Apple supplier AMS has also announced new sensor technology that could help the company deliver a smaller notch on upcoming iPhones. 

“Smartphone OEMs today are striving to maximize their products’ screen-to-body ratio, reducing the bezel area as much as possible on the display’s face,” said David Moon, Senior Marketing Manager at ams. “The TCS3701 enables phone designers to take this trend to a new level, potentially eliminating the bezel entirely."

If you don't like the size of the notch on the iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, iPhone XR, or iPhone X, think about waiting for the 2019 models.

      Hahahahha, sml. I agree. But the notch is a big thing that everyone needs to consider. In the end, we’ll still love the upcoming releases.

    I’m actually excited to see the 2019 models but you got a point there, my friend. It’s still better to keep the old ones.

    I am keeping my iPhone X. The XS and XS Max did not even get me excited. I hope the XR have some worthy features in store
