At the moment, the iPhone 11 doesn't seem interesting enough to divert me from my constant ambivalence to Apple smartphones – they all look like phones competing against Android competitors but sending twice the price – but it can there is a device in the works that changes my mind.
If rumors are to be believed, the iPhone 11 version will also bring with it the surprising unveiling of the iPhone 11 Pro; a phone that is the best even by iPhone standards, one that will come with an Apple Pencil-style stylus, and probably with a large screen .
This iPhone 11 Pro is not confirmed in any way, but there is enough leakage around the handset to take them seriously, and it has in mind Apple's ability to take their iPhones along the way on the iPad ̵
If true, the iPhone 11 Pro will be a huge departure from previous iPhones – and this fascinates me, as I don't think most iPhones improve enough between iterations. Although I still respect Apple products – the iPad Pro 12.9 (2018) is my tablet that I always go for – I always felt the phones were a little disappointing.
However, if the rumors about the iPhone 11 Pro turn out to be true, this might be the first Apple phone I'm actually interested in, or dare I say it, be excited. That's why.
What makes the iPhone 11 Pro so different?
While we don't know the processing power, size, camera specifications or special features of the iPhone 11 Pro, what we've heard is that it may come with a smaller Apple Pencil stylus similar to the S Pen, which Available with Samsung Galaxy Note 10 .
In Note 10, S Pen has a set of useful features. You can take notes, draw and comment, and use several gestures that trigger features, such as taking pictures. Although similar in terms of specifications, the Samsung Galaxy S10 presents a completely different phone experience on the Note 10, and this is because there is no stylus.
This distinction could potentially be echoed in the iPhone 11 Pro. Assuming that the basic iPhone 11 is a small step up from the iPhone XS Pro will be the device that brings new interesting changes to the iPhone series and this is a step up, which is rare in the Apple phone range.  What is so special about the stylus?
The stylus of the phone is not just a finger replacement for people who have constantly dirty hands, but a peripheral that adds an extra layer of functionality to your phone.
The reason is that it's simply easier to draw with a stylus than it is with the finger, the stylus is designed to draw on the screens of smartphones and the experience of drawing is smoother as it has less friction than when using a human finger.
On top of that, we humans are trained to write and draw with a pencil, not with your fingers, so it's more natural to use a stylus and much more precision.
Ever tried making quick notes with your smartphone? It's difficult to type effectively on such a small keyboard, and handwritten notes often seem pointless when you use your finger. However, when using a stylus, it is easy to quickly record notes and thoughts on the go.
You can also draw and comment on documents so it is much easier to use a stylus and it feels much more natural to do all of these things.
Why is this all so exciting?
I like to take notes, sign forms and comment on documents very much – I'm currently using an iPad Pro with Apple Pencil for this, but it can be quite annoying to have to take this out of my bag a time when I have to do a quick task. A stylus phone would be valuable.
Yes, I could buy a Samsung Galaxy Note 10, but I'm a big fan of the iPad Pro and I really respect the way the Apple device ecosystem works seamlessly. However, I have not yet gone the telephone route because, frankly, the iPhone seems a little boring and Android phones are a lot more exciting right now.
But if Apple had to take out An iPhone 11 Pro with a stylus designed for professionals or creators, it will leave other iPhones in the dust and I could get so much mileage out of it.
In writing this post, I managed to get away by anticipating a device that has not yet been validated even remotely by Apple and it is worth considering that it is quite possible that the iPhone 11 Pro may not be something  (or that it ends up being called something completely different). Rumors and leaks sometimes point to real devices, but just as often they are completely incorrect.
Having said that, I'm certainly not alone in the hope that Apple will find some new way to turn the iPhone 11 range into a real step from the iPhone X – kind of step by which The iPhone XS was not – and the high-end stylus device would be just that handset.
