Everything we know about the iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Max so far

We’re likely just three months away from the announcement of Apple’s 2019 iPhone lineup, including the iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Max. Apple this year is expected to introduce three new iPhone models, including successors to the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max, and a refreshed iPhone XR.

Read on as we roundup all of the rumors about the iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Max.

iPhone 11 Design

In terms of design, the iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Max are expected to be nearly identical to the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max. Earlier this month, 9to5Mac went hands-on with iPhone 11 cases, which offered a unique look at some of the smaller changes coming to this year’s iPhones.

The iPhone 11 is expected to measure in at 143.9 x 71.4 x 7.8mm, which is slightly larger and thicker than the iPhone XS at 143.6 x 70.9 x 7.7mm. The iPhone 11 Max will reportedly measure 157.6 x 77.5 x 8.1mm, which compares to the iPhone XS Max at 157.5 x 77.4 x 7.7 mm.

We’ll touch more on this later, but the iPhone 11 series is expected to feature a redesigned camera bump on the back. While the iPhone XS camera bump is vertically oriented and features two lenses, the iPhone 11 is expected to feature three lenses in a new square shape. While the bump is wider than prior generation iPhones, it is expected to be slightly thinner.

In order to make that camera bump as little of an eyesore as possible, the iPhone 11 will purportedlyfeature a “new and unique” back glass design, with the rear panel being made of a single piece of glass. The triple-lens camera bump will reportedly be housed underneath that piece of glass, which should help it appear slightly less notable. Other reports have suggested that the iPhone 11 will feature a “frosted glass” design on the back.

Another minor change is that the mute switch, side button, and volume buttons are expected to shift slightly. This is likely due to space constraints caused by the new camera technology. The mute switch is also rumored to have a slightly different shape and be oriented up and down rather than right to left.
