There is a possibility of Apple adding support for the Apple Pencil to this year’s iPhones. The run-up to the September launch of this year’s iPhones may see more rumors and predictions of some kind or the other. The occasion this time was the announcement of quarterly results of Apple Inc and most analysts had their own take on what one can expect from the Cupertino tech giant.
Citi Research Claims Apple Pencil Support is On
Of the various analysts to have made their predictions, Citi Research is the one to have included its opinion that Apple will include in the iPhones to be launched in 2019, support for the Apple Pencil. Those not convinced about this claim said that there were similar rumors in the past as well, but Apple did not go through with it in 2018. To be fair to one of the old predictions, the Apple Pencil support for the iPhones will be provided from 2019. Is Citi Research talking about this same prediction made in October 2017? That one had said 2 years back that the feature will materialize only in 2019. If you are an iPhone fan and also an Apple Pencil fan, this is what you may want to hear. The confirmation can only come from Apple before the launch or as the phones are unveiled at the launch event.
More of the Same Set of Rumors
Apart from the Apple Pencil feature, Citi Research has a lot to say in its report. However, most of these have been reported ad nauseam in the past few weeks. The new triple camera setup in a square bump on the iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Max plus the OLED screens on these two have all been mentioned before. Though there have not been specific rumors on the camera resolutions, Citi Research says it will be 14 MP cameras on the rear and a 10 MP sensor in the front for selfies.
Interestingly, this report has touched on the price predictions too. If you went by their version, the iPhone 11 will be sold at $999, the iPhone 11 Max at $1099 and the iPhone 11R at $749. Again, take them with a pinch of salt, though it cannot be denied that Apple has been left with very little scope to play around with the prices.
Some of the other aspects like doing away with the 3D Touch and adding the Taptic Engine and Haptic Touch are all figuring in the report.
