See the mockup of what the new phones might look like below, including the rumored square camera casing, which is said to house two cameras on the XR model. Mark Gurman and Debby Wu from Bloomberg have listed a set of features that will appear in the upcoming iPhone 11.

The green and lavender colors take the place of last year's blue and coral color options. The handset was supposed to launch last month but in addition to being a terribly ugly handset, it also ended up being a piece of junk. Today we've got our first glimpse of what the new colors will look like thanks to some photos of leaked colored glass pieces for the rear casings. The cheapest of last year's iPhones, the $750 iPhone XR, would cost an extra $100.

Legendary Chinese-born United States architect I.M. Pei dies at age 102
Pei designed the landmark glass and metal pyramid and three smaller pyramids in the museum's main courtyard. His 1980s design for New York's Jacob Javits Convention Center , for instance, is still less-than loved.

'Minecraft Earth' puts a 'Pokémon Go' spin on the blocky building game

United States pulls staff from Iraq, says Iran gave 'blessing' for tanker attacks
While ISIS has been stripped of all its territory in Iraq, it still controls thousands of fighters and conducts terrorist attacks. Two years later, his administration signed the nuclear deal with six world powers that spurred hopes for wider political change.

The phone is now priced at about 1,000 dollars. They'll feature designs that are identical to the current iPhone XS series phones on the front, and the back will be the same apart from the new triple-lens camera array expected on both new iPhones. We can expect more power and speed, of course, as well as a dramatically improved camera experience. Multiple sources have claimed that the new iPhone models will feature reverse wireless charging like Samsung's Galaxy S10 phones, which is pretty nifty. Recent renders show 2019's iPhone XR successor with a square camera housing despite the fact that it only has two cameras, while the iPhone XS and XS Max successors have been leaked and rendered with the same square camera bulge a handful of times. Apple has shed about $75 billion of market value since last Friday, a slide that removes it much further from the $1 trillion valuation it seemed nearer to reclaiming not long ago. 3 on the high end, 2 on the new XR.

We still don't know what the phones will actually be called, but considering how early we knew the names of both the iPhone XS and iPhone XR a year ago, it's only a matter of time before these leak as well.
