At the moment no one really knows what Apple’s 2019 iPhones will look like. The company, for the most part, has been employing a similar-ish design over the past couple of years, and a recent 3D printed mockup suggests that the changes won’t be too drastic. Now thanks to a series of renders shared by Cashkaro in collaboration with @OnLeaks, we have an idea of what we could expect.
At a glance, the renders don’t seem too different from the current iPhone models. The most obvious design change would be the back of the phone where the camera is, and where Apple is rumored to introduce a triple camera setup. However, the renders also show that Apple could introduce a new glass design on the back, and that they could also be redesigning the mute switch.
As the moment, the mute switch on the iPhone can be activated or deactivated by flipping it up or down while the phone is being held. However, based on these designs, it seems that Apple could be changing it so that the switch flips top to bottom. If this is true, it would mark the first major redesign to the mute switch since the mute switch’s orientation has more or less remain unchanged since the iPhone was first introduced.
Apart from that, it doesn’t seem too different from last year’s models. It’s not a bad thing, although it’s not particularly exciting ether, but until we get the official word, it’s probably best to take these renders with a grain of salt for now.
