Apple’s upcoming smartphone has been subjected to plenty of leaks and rumours and based on this information, popular designer, Ben Geskin has built physical models of the iPhone 11 and 11 Max and this gives us a glimpse of the brand’s final design.
While showing off the design of the upcoming iPhone, Geskin asks, “Did you get used to this design already?” He was then greeted with a barrage of comments and majority of those who replied back had an overwhelmingly negative reaction to the design with one person claiming, “Steve Jobs would’ve fired everyone.” The other notable comment was, “Horrible design… it looks so awkward.”
The issue most Apple fans have with the upcoming iPhone is the unsightly camera bump which will be employed with the next-generation handsets. Forbes reports that this hated feature could most likely be the iPhone 11’s headlining feature as Apple will be sidelining style for substance. This is because both new iPhones will feature significant sensor upgrades which potentially have the ability to propel both handsets to the top of the smartphone camera charts; a place which Apple has lost in recent times.
Other rumours indicate that the iPhone 11 will come with an added battery capacity that may prove to be a selling point. The next iPhone will also ditch 3D Touch which means the iPhone 11 and 11 Mac will come with an inferior haptic experience in comparison to the iPhone 6s; which doesn’t really bode well for the brand’s continuous claims of innovation. Another reason why Apple will be falling back this year is the notch; a feature that was made available with the iPhone X. This means that it will feature a three-year-old design in comparison to brands from rivals who are going all-out with pop-up selfie cameras and punch-hole notches. The Google Pixel 4 has also been rumoured to come with a punch-hole camera up-front and in the process pulling it way ahead of Apple in terms of design.

With Apple rumoured to launch a revolutionary handset in 2020, we feel that even the most ardent Apple fans may skip the 2019 version in favour for next year’s flagship.
