According to an analyst from Citi Research, Apple’s upcoming iPhone 11 is expected to support Apple Pencil. Last year, the media reported that the iPhone Xs and the iPhone Xs Max would the first iPhones to support Apple Pencil, but that didn’t happen.
From the past few years, Apple has been working to bring stylus functionality to iPhones, but the Citi analyst claims that Apple is finally ready to bring the Apple Pencil support to its iPhones this year.
Currently, the first-generation Apple Pencil works with the iPad mini 5, 6th-gen iPad, 1st and 2nd-gen iPad Pro, and 3rd-gen iPad Air. The second-generation Apple Pencil only works with the 11-inch iPad Pro and 3rd-gen 12.9-inch iPad Pro.
The iPhone 11 is expected to be launch in September this year. For the very first time, the smartphone will sport a triple-cameras at the back, a smaller notch and will run iOS 13. There will be a standard wide-angle unit, an ultra-wide-angle unit and a telephoto unit – all three sensors might be 12MP and is said to be developed by Sony. Apple is also planning to include support for underwater photography, for which it has also filed a patent that describes a system that has the ability to automatically adjust the camera settings when the iPhone is underwater.
Other features that will come with this year’s iPhones include increased band connectivity, frosted glass finish, reverse charging, improved Face ID, bigger batteries and a triple camera system.
In April, a renowned Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo claimed that the 2019 iPhone models will carry the same screen size as the 2018 models.
