2019 iPhones get EEC certification, 11 models confirmed to launch
Apple is expected to launch three new iPhones later this year. These are expected to be successors to the iPhone XR, iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max. While the names of the upcoming 2019 iPhones are still a mystery, we now know that there will be at least 11 variants in total as they have just been certified by the Eurasian Economic Community (EEC).
The 11 new iPhone models are different variants of the iPhone XR, iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max successors. They 11 model numbers, spotted by 9to5Mac, are A2111, A2160, A2161, A2215, A2216, A2217, A2218, A2219, A2220, A2221, and A2223. Of these, the A2111, A2161, A2215 model numbers represent the new iPhone XR successor. The other model numbers are for the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max successors.
There are as many as 11 models because Apple sells different variants of the iPhone in different markets based on cellular band compatible and single SIM or dual SIM requirements.
Based on what we know so far, the upcoming iPhone models are expected to look largely similar to their predecessors on the outside, while getting some major upgrades in hardware. They should get similar wide-notched displays on the front and glass rear panels. The iPhone XS and XS Max successors will most definitely a triple camera setup in a square-shaped module, while the iPhone XR successor will get a dual camera setup.
The 2019 iPhone models will be powered by the next-gen Apple A13 chipset and will run on iOS 13 out-of-the-box. Apple’s WWDC 2019 will begin on June 3 where the company will announce iOS 13 and its features, so we should more about the company’s next major software in a few days from now.
