At this level, you’ve most likely have every reason to skip the new iPhone 11and iPhone XR2 – they don’t look right. However, wait. Apple itself has now ‘by chance’ revealed a shock new iPhone improve, which could change your thoughts.
Look carefully at Apple’s first beta of iOS 13, and you can find there’s a new restoration mode display screen on your iPhone, and on it, the Lightning cable proven in iOS 12 has been swapped for USB-C. With iPads shifting to USB-C final year and MacBook’s utilizing nothing however this connector, it could be enormous enhance to see iPhones make the transition to this trade customary as effectively. It’s a radical transfer too, given Apple’s exclusivity over the Lightning port and its successful MFi licensing program.
Apple fanatic Raphael Mouton first noticed the change. However, it has been hiding in plain sight. Amusingly, Apple fan web site iMore used the brand new restoration display in an iOS 13 downgrade information without noticing it.
Cynics will level out that the brand new iOS 13 image exhibits the USB-C cable pointing to a MacBook and declare it’s merely the top of a Lightning to USB-C quick charger. That’s potential. However, iOS has led a cable on the MacOS model of iTunes and used a Lightning cable. With iTunes now being replaced, Apple has needed to replace the picture; however, the firm seems to have missed the massive giveaway it reveals.
Moreover, regardless of a stereotype of Apple wanting its merchandise shrouded in thriller, the corporate has a monitor file of leaking particulars about future merchandise in every new model of iOS.

Within the early betas of iOS 11, Apple leaked the Home Pod and the iPhone X’s Face ID.
So sure, Apple loves an ‘unintentional’ leak in every new technology of iOS, and they’re all the time effectively timed. The Home Pod leak appeared when Apple was underneath strain to reply to Amazon and Google; Face ID appeared when iPhones designs had been ridiculed for his or her large backside bezels (because of Contact ID), and the iPhone XS Max info got here when Apple was pressed to make an iPhone with a bigger show.
