‘iPhone 11 Pro’: Is that Apple’s name for the next top iPhone?
One of Apple’s three upcoming iPhones, expected to be called the iPhone 11, could have the word ‘Pro’ pinned to the end of its name.
That’s the claim from a reputable leaker who accurately predicted the names of last year’s iPhone models.
In a recent heads-up, the publication also said the iPhone with a square triple camera setup on the rear would be called the iPhone 11 Pro.
However, there is still uncertainty on how Apple would use the word Pro in relation to upgrades to the existing iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, and iPhone XR, but it could be the iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro, and iPhone 11R.
It is expected that Apple will stick with three new iPhone models this year, including the top-end 6.5-inch and 5.8-inch OLED iPhones, and a cheaper 6.1-inch iPhone with LCD.
Apple is also thought to be reserving the triple-rear camera set-up for the equivalent of three iPhone Max, giving it a wide, telephoto, and ultra-wide lens.
Face ID is also expected to get an upgrade to increase the scanning distance. Meanwhile, all the new models should have improved navigation and indoor positioning.
Last week, Apple also released the sixth developer beta of iOS 13, which it unveiled in June and is expected to release around September. iOS 13 will include improvements to multitasking, dark mode, a revamped Mail app, improvements to Messages, and a desktop-class Safari experience on iPadOS 13.
On the security front, Apple announced it had expanded its existing bug bounty for iOS to macOS, watchOS, and tvOS. It will also raise its maximum reward of $200,000 for vulnerabilities to $1m, which will be available for macOS and iOS exploits.
