There is a lot of pressure for Apple to come up with an amazing new iPhone this year as fiscal sales of the Cupertino giant’s smartphone line has dropped by almost 12 percent. 

This is a big number to fill, and Apple is set to contend with newer and feature-packed competitors like Samsung’s Galaxy Note 10 or the Huawei P40. What’s alarming is that as early as now, some Apple analysts actually believe that the iPhone 11 will fall short of expectations. 

There are a lot of issues in the supposed new features of Apple’s next flagship line, particularly the triple-camera system that seems to be a done deal already. Not only is this new feature considered boring, some actually see it as ugly no thanks to the large camera hump that will section in the phone’s new camera lenses. 

The upgrades are also described to be minor compared to the rumored features of the 2020 iPhone or the iPhone 12 which is expected to be powered already by 5G network along with other excellent features that suggest it might be better to wait out on a new iPhone this year. 

Despite the negative press, however, there are some notable features in the upcoming iPhone that could make it a good smartphone investment. The most significant is the expected changes in the iPhone’s Logic Board, which is said to become the cornerstone of future iPhones. 

The changes in the internal setup could mean that the new iPhones can now accommodate better batteries for the phone, translating to better battery life. 

This is a timely upgrade because the last time Apple made improvements in their phones, battery life lasted only 17 hours and 23 minutes approximately, based on a report from CNET. In comparison, competitors Samsung and Huawei averaged 21 to 23 hours. 

The upcoming iOS 13 is also expected to help in battery usage because it will ensure that apps are downloaded faster and the iPhone 11 has new modes that can save on the smartphone’s energy such as Dark Mode. All in all, we can see a total improvement of about 30 percent in battery life for the new smartphone. 

Because of this, some analysts are holding on to the possibility that the new phone could come with new accessories that could help powerup the new smartphone. The iPhone 8, 8 Plus and iPhone X needed extra accessories such as a USB-C to Lightning cable just to improve charging functions and battery life. 

For the iPhone 11, the call for these kinds of accessories to be included with every smartphone purchase is getting strong. This includes the USB-C to Lightning cable (since the feature is expected to arrive next year) and maybe an 18-watt charger or Power Brick. Of course, this is only part of everyone’s Apple wishlist but at $999 for the base model (which is assumed to be the price of the new iPhone), this feature seems only fair for those who will once more purchase a new iPhone.
