Apple has yet to reveal or even acknowledge that it is coming up with an iPhone 11 sometime this year. But if the announcement of the iOS 13 during the 2019 Apple World Wide Developers Conference is any indication, then we know that the Cupertino giant has something up its sleeves.

What we know so far based on the iOS 13 announcement last Monday is that the market is getting an iPhone software update that has the following features: Dark Mode, new photo features, upgraded map and customizable Memoji avatars, among others. Now looking at all these new features, these are not something that can get a true Apple fan excited.

But knowing the Cupertino company, the firm often holds off on the major announcement until it’s time to reveal. In this case, people would have to wait until September, the month that Apple has not failed to announce a new iPhone for the past years.

But then again, based on what Apple did not announce regarding the iOS 13, there are still some clues to consider on what to expect from the next iOS smartphone. According to CNET, first on the list is an iPhone with a possible improvement in zoom capabilities.

Everyone is almost certain that Apple is coming up with a triple camera render for its next flagship phones (the iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Max), so it’s quite likely that this could mean improvement on the iPhone’s macro photography capabilities.

Another possible feature is the power-sharing option for the next iPhone. Samsung's Galaxy S10 is already first in the party when it comes to this feature so it’s not hard to imagine that the iPhone will follow suit.

A new feature called Wireless Power Share might be one of the major changes of the next phone which would allow the smartphone to share energy with compatible wireless devices until the phone is down to only 30 percent of battery. This feature makes sense since Apple is yet to offer an alternative to the AirPower charging dock which the company has already taken out of its lineup. If true, then iOS 13 might be able to enhance the experience by ensuring that power-sharing happens only when the phone is plugged to an outlet.

With the improvement of the rear cameras, it could be possible that the front cameras of the next iPhone will also improve. Aside from better lighting and focus, the front-facing cameras could play a crucial role in another iPhone function — the Face ID. Per the report, the next Face ID recognition feature will be 30 percent faster compared to the older version.

These are only some of the features that were not announced during WWDC that have a very big chance of being announced when the iPhone 11 already comes to light. Looking at these possibilities, the next iPhone is going to be an exciting gadget to look forward to.
