With significant attention surrounding the iPhone X, which was recently released to generally favorable reviews, people are already looking ahead to the handset’s follow up, the iPhone 11. Though there has been speculation surrounding future updates, there is scope for so much to change throughout the course of this year, but that doesn’t restrict consumer curiosity surrounding the smartphone that has revolutionized the world we live.
When the iPhone 11 was announced, people wondered whether it would incorporate TrueDepth Cameras like the 3D sensing on the front camera of the iPhone X, but this time on the backside. Introducing the world to Face ID was a huge development for Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL), but in its early stages it is only available on the front camera, leaving consumers wondering whether there is room for improvement.
Though a lot can change in a year, for now it would appear as if the iPhone 11 camera will use the same technology as the iPhone X. Contrary to this, perhaps a demand to incorporate this technology on the backside cameras will change Apple’s outlook. For now, customers are amazed with the recent facial recognition feature, which can be used as a unique method for unlocking your phone, and for many other applications. One of these is the Animoji app, where you can create animated emoji characters using face tracking, a fun feature with various purposes.

Apple are certainly not pushed to advance the technology of the iPhone 11 camera forward, because they are already leaps and bounds ahead of the competition as pioneers of Face ID. Though there is no immediate reason to spread the camera system to the back, market expectations are subject to change, and the concept of the TrueDepth camera will continue to evolve.
If the iPhone 11 camera is anything like the iPhone X camera, it will maintain its selling price and cost of manufacture by limiting the TrueDepth camera to the front, though they might procure technology more effectively and reduce cost over time. If TrueDepth doesn’t make it to the backside iPhone 11 camera, what can we expect in terms of updates?
There are likely to be additional specification upgrades, which always have a capacity to attract new and existing customers, and Apple will focus on personalizing the user experience as they target a 10-20% shipment increase. Though the iPhone 11 camera is intriguing, it would seem as if the iPhone X will be the most sold iPhone next year, but for the time being it’s important to focus on the current, and capitalize on the advanced features of an impressive phone before it’s upgraded further.
The iPhone X has an OLED screen which is significantly bigger than its predecessor, and the full screen design has been well-received by consumers. Though tweaks to the phone are inevitable, the iPhone 11 will probably include a similar design, but technology enthusiasts eagerly await changes, especially with the iPhone 11 camera.
