It has become abundantly clear that 2019 is the year to put off your iPhone upgrade. Apple’s iPhone 11 is the ugliest model in years and the company’s 2020 plans look far more exciting. But now the groundwork for the 2020 leaphas been discovered and its most radical change lies in the iPhone 11.

This shocking news comes via hugely popular YouTuber Filip Koroy (aka EverythingApplePro) who has revealed the first images of the iPhone 11’s new logic board and it forms the cornerstone of headline changes which will be seen in iPhones for years to come.
At face value, the alteration seems minor: Apple is moving from the L-shaped logic board inside both the iPhone X and iPhone XS, to a more compact, stacked rectangular design. And what the new design enables Apple to do is fit much larger batteries than the iPhone XS (Koroy states 15-20% larger) which will drive the leap from 4G to 5G as well as providing the extra capacity to compensate for reverse wireless charging devices like AirPods.
As Koroy states, “Apple is taking batteries very seriously this year” and this makes sense. The iPhone 11 will miss out on 5G (among many other things) but Apple will give it reverse wireless charging and this allows the company to test the hardware ahead of the big 2020 redesign.
How accurate is Koroy? He has had some misses but, in this instance, he has attained multiple independent sources and he published a transcription from a third who vouches for them as “100% accurate”. The timing also makes sense since previous iPhone logic board leaks have appeared between July and August as Apple begins to ramp up production and components start hitting factory floors.
Does all this clever circuitry mean you should now buy the iPhone 11? Absolutely not. While it looks set to deliver improved battery life, the real benefits will only be reaped in 2020 when Apple catches up to rivals with 5G. Moreover, don’t expect an iPhone 11 to hold its price when you eventually sell it in a 5G world. That’s why the smart money waits.
