10 Reasons to Wait for the 2019 iPhone & 12 Reasons Not To

Published

on

The 2018 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 iPhones, phones that some are calling iPhone 11 or iPhone XI.

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 three or so months away from Apple’s iPhone announcements and we’ve seen a bunch of credible 2019 iPhone rumors emerge.

2019 iPhone Rumors

Ahead of these announcements, Apple’s registered eleven new iPhone models in the Eurasian Economic Commission database.

According to Indian blog MySmartPrice, these include the A2111, A2160, A2161, A2215, A2216, A2217, A2218, A2219, A2220, A2221, and A2223. These models most likely represent Apple’s new crop of iPhones.

EEC filings often come several months ahead of release and they’ve hinted at impending launches numerous times in the past.

The 2019 iPhone release is currently rumored for September. Not that this comes as a surprise. The information comes from Evan Blass (also known as evleaks) and the source is a 2019 Verizon marketing calendar.

The 2019 iPhones will almost certainly arrive in September.

The company’s new iPhones will reportedly feature a new A13 processor, a new camera setup, 4GB of RAM and a dual-camera setup on the iPhone XR’s successor, 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 newest iPad Pros. Several other reports claim the company will keep Lightning as the standard on the 2019 iPhones.

We’ve heard that Apple will continue to bundle in the familiar 5W power adapter with the new iPhones. If true, it would force 2019 iPhone users to spend additional cash on a faster charger.

We’ve also heard that Apple will finally bundle a 18W Fast Charger with the 2019 iPhones. These rumors not only contradict each other, they come from the same source.

A more recent report Japanese blog Mac Otakara claims the 2019 iPhones will come with the faster 18W charger in addition to a USB-C to Lightning cable. An 18W adapter would allow newer iPhone models to move from 1% battery to 79% battery in an hour.

Accessory makers are confident Apple’s finalized the 2019 iPhone design and one manufacturer has already released accessories based on inside information.

Mobile Fun is currently selling Olixar’s tempered glass camera protectors for the iPhone 11’s rumored rear triple-camera setup. We don’t recommend buying accessories until the phones are already out, but if you feel inclined, the option is available to you.

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 the Best Version of iOS 13

Wait for the Best Version of iOS 13

New iPhones typically come with some exclusive software features so if you want the absolute best version of iOS 13, you might want to hang around.

With the iOS 13 update now in beta, we're starting to learn about the operating system that will power the 2019 iPhones.

We're also hearing about some potential software features on board the new iPhones.

According to leaker Max Weinbach, who shared his information with YouTuber EverythingApplePro, the new iPhones will come with a camera upgrade that rivals Google's Night Sight feature. The feature would help the new iPhones shoot better photos in low light environments. 

Older iPhone models sometimes miss out on features due to hardware limitations so if you want everything iOS 13 has to offer, think about waiting. 

It's also worth noting that the 2019 iPhones will come with better software support than current versions of the iPhone.

Software support for current and older iPhone models will end much sooner than it does for this year's iPhones. 

So if you plan to hold onto your next phone for four years or more, you might want to wait for Apple's new models.

    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.

      100% better. As long as you replace the battery that is. Mine’s about 6 years old and if I replaced the battery It’d be as good as new!

    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

    Same here, we are also waiting for the next iteration of iPhones since the XS and XS Max failed to introduce anything major over the original X. We are also excited to see how Samsung does with their foldable phone.

    For me the iPhone 6s was my last apple mobile device. The new phones are way too pricey and not affordable anymore and you get more from the chinese manufacteurs.
