A screenshot hidden within iOS 13 beta is sort of a dead giveaway of Sept. 10 being the launch date of iPhone 11.
Apple is speculated to launch its next iPhone, the iPhone 11 on September 10. The above revelation has its origins in none other than the iOS 13 beta, the seventh in the series, that contains a screenshot of the operating system and is labelled ‘HoldForRelease’.
If that isn’t a giveaway big enough, the image also includes an icon of the iOS Calendar app with the marking September 10 on it. Now, this rings well with the usual practice that Apple follows when it comes to hint the launch of its forthcoming iPhone models.
For instance, the launch of the iPhone 10 was projected similarly via a screenshot that carried the marking of September 12. And it’s all too well known that the iPhone 10 was indeed launched on September 12, 2018. Apple usually launches its new iPhone on the second week of September, and that too on a Tuesday. Needless to mention, September 10, 2019 falls on a Tuesday.
As for the device in the offing, Apple is expected to launch three iPhone models this year too. The new iPhone devices will also come with a host of advancements, which likely includes a more concise notch this time to make for a visually stunning design for the iPhone 11. Interestingly, the iPhone 10 is the one that started the notch design approach, only to be copied by nearly all Android phones that followed subsequently.
However, the Android phones have since migrated to adopt a notch-less design thereafter, and much of that has been made possible by the incorporation of a pop-up selfie camera. As such, it would be interesting to see how Apple responds to the advent of true all-screen mobiles in the Android domain.
Meanwhile, in a related development, Apple has taken strong objection to the way the upstart Corellium LLC has been recklessly selling virtual copies of the iOS and iPadOS without explicit permission from Apple for doing so. Corellium said they are making virtual copies of iPhone and iPad OS for discovering security vulnerabilities, a justification that Apple is least impressed with.
Apple, in fact, has sued Corellium and is seeking the court’s intervention to prevent the company to make profits out of the virtual copies of Apple software. The iPhone maker has also charged Corellium of not intimating them of the vulnerabilities that they come across but indulges in selling the flaws to the highest bidder in the open market. No wonder, Apple is seeking a ban on such as well.
