Last night, Apple's trusted analyst Ming-Chi Quo submitted his final report In addition to the obvious allegations of lack of support for the Apple Pencil, Kuo indicated that the 18W USB-C will quickly charge only the high-end 5.8-inch and 6.5-inch iPhone 11 models.
Most notably, Kuo indicated that earlier reporting of two-way wireless charging was revised given. He said that due to charging efficiency that did not meet Apple's requirements, the iPhone 11 line would no longer be able to charge AirPods wirelessly by placing the box on the back of the phone. Bloomberg's Mark Gurman added to this story which indicates that he too heard Apple was experiencing problems with the reboot system and indeed appears to be delayed this year.
Updated Forecasting: iPhone 11, iPhone Pro, iPhone Pro Max. https://t.co/pymVRR3dcQ records19659004Sense – Mark Gurman (@markgurman) September 10, 2019
Perhaps most interesting is that Gourmet stated that his sources tell him that the names of the iPhone line would be the iPhone 11, iPhone Pro and iPhone Pro Max. Common names so far were iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max.
Gourmet's tweet suggests that Apple will not use the numbering scheme for 11 Pro models. This would further separate the phones from the main iPhone 11, which will be the successor to the iPhone XR, though rumors indicate that the only difference between the non-Pro and Pro is the leap from dual-camera to ultra-wide-lens three-camera system.
However, trying to apply logic to choosing an Apple brand is a crazy exercise. Apple's naming schemes continue to surprise us.
Gourmet has finally stated that he believes that 10 1945-inch iPad will be announced on stage today. As it is rumored, this will replace the $ 9.9-inch iPad starting at $ 329 in the iPad range. What is intriguing here is that the hearing mill consensus has indicated that the iPad should be refreshed in October, the expected second media event. If the new iPad for the mass market comes today, then it raises questions about what Apple will have, if nothing else, next month … most people are still expecting to see the redesigned 16-inch MacBook Pro before the end of the year.
