Apple's new iPhone 11 is almost definitely around the corner, with a launch expected in the coming weeks. A rumor has emerged that suggests the new phones will have crush-resistant technology to improve durability, Bloomberg reports.
Over the years, we've seen Apple's iPhone grow, and more and more glass has been used to cover the front and back of the phones. Although Apple has worked to improve the durability of its iPhones, add water resistance and even develop its own sapphire glass, it is still common enough to see people with broken iPhones.
This fact is aggravated by the ever-increasing prices of iPhones. And the designs have not always led to easy repair, as we saw for the absurdly high cost of iPhone X repairs two years ago. Repairing a broken screen on the iPhone X cost $ 279 and a broken back cost $ 549.
Smashing resistant glass can help prevent the type of catastrophic damage that requires such major repairs. Unfortunately, we do not have details about exactly this technology or the degree of protection it offers. If it aims to be truly special, it has its work cut out for it, as Gorilla Glass 6 can withstand 1
In addition to the blast resistance, Bloomberg's sources suggest that there will be three new iPhone 11 devices, with a cheaper iPhone 11R completing two advanced iPhone 11 Pro models.
The new Pro models are expected to have the three-sensor camera system we have seen in many leaks and render devices. While the iPhone XS family already had dual sensor systems, the new camera system expects to add a wide-angle sensor for more versatile photography. The cameras can also be complemented by more advance video software, including live editing features, and an AMX coprocessor that can promote the devices enhanced reality performance.
Face ID can also get a lift from a wide-angle sensor on the front would make facial scanning easier. And Apple can finally do away with 3D Touch, moving both Pro handsets over to the Haptic Touch it implemented in the iPhone XR.
Another addition that may explain why crushing resistance will be more important than ever is the ability of the iPhone 11 to charge other devices wirelessly, such as AirPods, which will discourage owners from using a case to protect their phone.
