IPhone XR successor might boast even bigger battery

People are not too fond of the new design of the upcoming Apple iPhone 11

People are not too fond of the new design of the upcoming Apple iPhone 11

However, a new development has taken place and this has been revealed by Apple itself.

USB Type-C is the standard connection used across most smartphone brands, which would make it a more convenient connection type to have on an iPhone than the current Lightning port. Apple's reasons for these restrictions aren't entirely clear; optimists believe it's for security reasons while cynics feel that Apple simply doesn't want other banking apps rolling their own payment solutions that would compete with Apple Pay, but regardless of the reasons it's put a limitation on the iPhone platform that simply doesn't exist in the Android world, where NFC is wide open by comparison.

There's a long-standing rumor that Apple will ditch the proprietary Lightning connector on the iPhones for USB-C and it seems like 2019 is the year rumors turn into reality. In this case, the cable highly resembles a USB-C and not a Lightning cable. The report states that the iPhone XR has 2942mAh battery.

A Twitter user from France observed new visuals in iOS 13 when connecting the iPhone to the Mac to perform a restore. Then again, Apple's visuals are usually pretty specific.

However, 2019 is expected to be the past year an LCD iPhone sees daylight, as Apple could make the full switch to OLED beginning with 2020. In the previous leaks of datamined images from iOS updates, Apple has very accurate animations. According to iFixit teardown, the iPhone XR has a 11.16Wh battery, that is more than the iPhone XS's 10.13Wh. Although Apple has never been best in class when it comes to battery life, the success of the iPhone XR has shown that a cheaper price tag and a higher-capacity battery are more important for some consumers than the design.

Features for a revamped XR have started to leak out in advance of Apple's September product launch.

The new image might not mean anything.
