Should it still come as a surprise that Apple's upcoming iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Max and iPhone 11R have touched exponentially more hype than some new Android phones since virtually the beginning of 2019? It seems like it should be expected at this time, but we still think it's impressive that Apple's non-released iPhones are able to get so much buzz almost a year before they were released. Even now, with the Galaxy Note 10 and Note 10 + launch less than two weeks away and the Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL threatening, social media is still buzzing about Apple's unpublished iPhone 11. Certainly, hardcore Android fans are waiting for Samsung and Google's new flagship phones with gently breathe. But even ordinary people chatter about the iPhone 1
Despite the fact that this year's iPhone is a new number update as opposed to an "S" update, it is being shaped like the iPhone 7 back in 2016. It's going to look almost exactly like last year's iPhone XS and iPhone X from the previous year, marking the third consecutive year that Apple will use the same iPhone design. On top of that, we have not yet heard of any innovative new marking features. Yes, it will be faster and it will also tell some great new camera features – a very cool new camera feature that leaked earlier this week – but it's not shaped like the huge update some Apple fans might have hoped for. And despite all this, people simply can't stop summing up on the upcoming new iPhone 11 series.
We do not yet know all there is to know about the iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Max and the iPhone 11R (or whatever Apple ends up naming it), but we know a great deal. Inmates such as TF International Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo have leaked iPhone 11 deals for almost a year now, and the iPhone 11's design has sprung around the internet for months since the first series of renderings was made based on stolen design files from the Foxconn factory where Apple's new iPhone models will be assembled.
While all of the aforementioned renderings have given us a good idea of what to expect from Apple's upcoming new iPhones, almost everyone has made two big mistakes.  Thanks to information from Kuo, whose track record speaks for itself, we know that Apple is making two significant design changes this year. First, the area around the rear camera lenses of the iPhone 11 series phones will be matched to the color of the back of the phone. Most graphic designers have made that site black as it is on every previous generation iPhone. Second, the standard iPhone mute switch is replaced by a small round switch like the one on Apple's iPad Pro tablet. Again, designers have used the old switch on their designs. And it's not just designers – check out this video, showing physical mockups from the iPhone 11, all of which have the same design flaws.
After all these rewards and dummies that make the same mistakes over and over, someone finally created a video that shows Apple's actual iPhone 11 design perfectly. These new renditions were created by a graphic designer who calls himself "Prospection" and is shown in a video posted on the YouTube channel ConceptsiPhone. Before we get to the video, let's take a closer look at the two problem areas that this new iPhone 11 design gets right.
First, the color-coded rear camera:
And then, the mute switch replacing Apple's mute switch:
There are some small things here and there that are probably not exactly accurate, but only a hardcore Apple fan will ever notice them without have pointed them out. And even with these tiny inaccuracies, this is still by far the best representation we have seen so far from Apple's upcoming iPhone 11, scheduled to launch in September.
