Apple has been releasing its latest iOS 13 betas for the developers ever since it introduced at WWDC 2019. And, today the Cupertino tech giant has released the 7th iOS 13 developer beta, which has reportedly hinted the much anticipated iPhone 11 series launch date. While we already knew that there would be a trio of iPhones, which are expected to be named — iPhone 11 (could be the successor to iPhone XR with LCD display), iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone Pro 11 Max, the new code in the latest beta has hinted the expected release date slated for next month.
First spotted by iHelpBR, the new code in the iOS 13 7th beta has a hidden screenshot of the alleged iPhone screen revealing Home Screen, which further has the native iOS 13 Calendar icon that is dated September 10, which is less than a month away. The screenshot is also named “HoldForRelease” suggesting the launch is imminent. The report further clarifies this has been the case with the last year launched iPhone XS series as well. With the launch expected on the 10th of next month, we could expect the pre-orders to begin within a week or so, after the release.
On the other hand, a South Korean based TheElecc report has confirmed the OLED panels utilized in the upcoming iPhone 11 models, except for the successor to the iPhone XR model, are said to be made by Samsung Display. While, this isn’t new as Apple had done it before, with the earlier released OLED iPhone models starting from iPhone X and above, the interesting part here is, these are the same OLED display panels, which have been implemented on Samsung’s latest Galaxy S10 series and the newly launched Galaxy Note 10 series as well.
According to the report, Apple had custom-made Samsung Display materials (code-named LT2) for the iPhone X and Xs models, however, for this time, the iPhone 11 OLED models will be using Samsung made display material codenamed ‘M9’, which were used in the Galaxy S10 and Note 10 series that have already proven to be the best displays in the market. Well, this different approach from Apple, by sharing the same display materials of its rival flagships appears to be fascinating. That said, let us expect what Apple brings more to the table with the new iPhone 11 models, do comment your thoughts below. Stay connected to Technical Bazaar for more such interesting updates.
