The 2019 iPhone lineup may give you deja vu

Tech Industry
What can we expect so far about the 2019 iPhones? And we're sorting all the conflicting rumors about the iPhone XR sales. Let's get right to the core of this week's Apple news and rumors. [MUSIC] Next year's iPhone could look a lot like this year's iPhone. Many reports at this point including one from long-time Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo suggest that Apple will be keeping the same three sizes of devices. In the three price tiers. Now it's pretty disappointing considering this was supposed to be the S year for Apple. But in light of recent history it's not surprising. At least it's not surprising to me. Before the iPhone 10 Apple retained the same general design for three years in a row with iPhone 6, 6S, and 7, so it comes as no surprise. Now, the latest 9to5Mac report suggests that one of these devices, likely one of the more expensive iPhone XS Max, could actually lose some weight, thanks to a new type of OLED screen made by Samsung that would allow for a slimmer, lighter form factor. Now the report also goes on to say, that given production limitations at this point, it would only be able to apply these change to one of the three new models. And obviously the higher and heavier one makes the most sense. But even with this brand new OLED screen, you'll probably still have to deal with the notch on these new phones. Report from Forbes in 9to5Mac suggest that Apple is having a hard time getting rid of the notch On its newer devices because it still needs that true depth camera array on the front for face ID. Now other devices like the OPO Find and Vevo Next have already figured out a way to make a truly bezzilous display. And Samsung is rumored to be working on an in-screen fingerprint reader that would also allow it to be truly bezzolous. But, don't expect this from Apple in 2019. Now with no major design changes to come, and apparently no smaller Iphone SE to look forward to, that leaves Little for Apple to wow with us, at least in terms of phones. Of course 2019 iPhones could still have redeeming qualities like much better battery life, which is always welcome, or a much better camera. Qualcomm just announced its new chipsets which allow us to have a blurred background effect on video. Now that would be a great Feature for the next iPhones, even tho Apple doesn't really use Wacom chips. They also potentially could switch to a USB-C, like the iPads from this year, but that wouldn't make as much sense on an iPhone. And they're also said to be including better AR features. Now, whether or not that would be a software update or a Hardware, it's tough to know, kind of like ARKit 2 this year, which brought the Measure app and multiplayer support to the iPhones. The latest patent suggests AR feature is being used for something that at least I would use a lot more, figuring out which one is your ride. Seriously, there's been many times where I've either jumped in the wrong car Car or scare the crap out of poor drivers because I didn't know which Lyft or Uber car was mine. Now the app would allow you to point the camera and figure out which one of the the sea of cars is yours. It would also work the other way and allow drivers to pin point who called the Lyft. But the more exciting changes to the iPhone could be coming in 20 20. And sometimes it's worth taking a look at the companies that provide the materials for the iPhone to get a sense of what we can expect from Apple's devices. Take Intel, for example, the company just announced its latest chip, which comes with 5G support. Now, it's a little too late to implement it in 2019 iPhones, but definitely by 2020. This would be a little further behind and some of it's competitors. But by 2020, there will be a lot more networks support and 5G would actually make more sense on an iPhone. Now let's take a look at Kony, the company that's been providing the gorilla glass for the iPhone since basically the golden age of Steve Jobs. And it's now working on an ultra thin Foldable glass, which we got a chance to see for ourselves. Now, again, it's still in early development phases, but it could potentially cover the next generation of foldable devices, including one from Apple. It's no secret That companies like Samsung are starting to adopt the foldable phone trend, announcing plans to make a foldable device, and Apple could be next. On the rumors about disappointing sales and production cuts to the iPhone XR are continuing to add up this week. Now Japan displays the screen supplier is the latest iPhone supplier to report that it's cutting its forecast growth for 2019. This according to Forbes, and then we saw this report from Bloomberg which actually says the complete opposite, and that two of Apple's main suppliers are actually reporting growth in the last month. Now what does this all mean? It means you really can't trust the rumors and you probably already knew that. Now the sad thing is we probably will never really know the truth to this matter especially now that Apple's quarterly earning reports will not include an itemized breakdown of unit sales. [SOUND] Now let's talk Apple Watch. Last week Apple finally launched the ECG app for the Apple Watch Series 4, which we've been waiting for since it's launch. And it's already helping save lives. It also launched right alongside the irregular heart rhythm notification Certification that actually comes to all Apple watches except for the first generation with the update to watch [UNKNOWN] 5.1.2 that's actually there is why we [UNKNOWN] last week episode of Apple core I was able to test out this feature early and I took it to the doctors office to compare to a traditional EKG reading and it. Actually held up. In fact, it showed that I had something somewhat interesting about my heart that I'm gonna have to get checked out later on. And apparently I'm not the only benefiting from this feature. Since it's rollout, barely a week ago User [UNKNOWN] on Reddit posted that he had received an atrial fibrillation notification on his Apple Watch. Now the 46 year old was interviewed by Good Morning America, and he actually said he'd been having chest pains earlier this year and that the doctor hadn't been able to diagnose it sooner But that once he got the information from the Apple Watch along with his hospital test, he was able to get a full atrial fibrillation diagnosis. And he will now be getting treated. So it could have potentially saved his life. And you can expect a lot more health features From Apple in the coming years. The company is rumored to be working on the glucose and blood pressure monitor for the Apple Watch. It also just got a patent for biometric sensors in the Airpods that could be interesting in the coming years. And Apple has just released it's first sleep tracker since acquiring the sleep tracking company Beddit in 2017. As of last Friday, you can now buy the Beddit 3.5 sleep monitor on the Apple store. This is a thin, two millimeter strip that you put under your mattress and it connects, With your iPhone and Apple Watch, and it can measure things like your sleep time, obviously, your heart rate, your breathing patterns, your bedroom temperature, and your snoring. But then again, if your married, you probably don't need a tracker to tell you that you're snoring [LAUGH]. That does it for this week's show, but in the meantime, I'm still collecting your 2019 wish list. But what you most want to see from Apple. So let me know on the comment section below, or hit me up on Twitter, and come back next week for more Apple Core.
