We don’t have to wait too long until the next smartphone flagship line of Apple drops. The supposed iPhone 11 will be launched officially on Sept. 10. 

Despite its nearing launch date, leaks continue to be released and tech reporters continue to analyze if the iPhone 11 is a gadget worth buying. The new iOS smartphone line has suffered tremendous negative media during the past months, most of which stemmed from Apple’s supposed lackluster upgrades. 

The analysis is easy enough to understand. The supposed iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Max and the iPhone 11 Pro will look the same as their 2018 predecessor sexcept for the highly conspicuous triple-camera system at the back of the smartphones that’s been called both “boring” and “ugly” by some tech insiders and fans. 

There are some good points: Apple will introduce a smartphone with a new logic board and a powerful A13 chip. The logic board will make way for a better battery system that could improve the smartphone’s juice by as much as 30 percent. The upgrade has been labeled “the cornerstone” of future Apple upgrades, stressing the importance of the iPhone 11’s contribution to the company’s lineup. 

But are the new features enough for Apple fans to ditch their old smartphones and go for the iPhone 11? News of next year’s smartphone line is arguably more enticing especially with the prospect of 5G smartphones coming to Apple

In a CNET report, this year’s Apple lineup has been described as modest at best and that one of the problems the Cupertino firm is facing right now is how to make it seem like the new iOS smartphone is a definite must-have. 

Aside from the iPhone 11 line’s triple-camera system and faster processor, the new smartphones will also run the latest iOS software. It might also be able to wirelessly charge Apple accessories like the AirPods and have an improved Face ID that could help the phone recognize users even at odd angles. 

The report, however, said that these changes are not enough especially since competition is basically coming up with more groundbreaking changes in both design and function. Samsung's Galaxy Note 10, for example, now sports a stunning all-screen design while the OnePlus 7 has a very nifty pop-up camera. 

"Apple is falling further behind many of its competitors when it comes to overall innovation and that's even in an era when the smartphone industry as a whole has stalled. It's going to be hard to get people excited about the new iPhones," Technalysis analyst Bob O'Donnell said in the report.
