A new rumor states that a three-camera iPhone could be on its way to market

And yes, three more models.

It feels like only yesterday that Apple CEO, Tim Cook, was berating us for buying his phones the wrong way. Now, CES is almost over and while Apple didn’t attend in person, that doesn’t mean they didn’t still dominate the headlines.

Starting before CES even began, Apple put up a huge ad on the side of one of the hotels, stating “What happens on your iPhone, stays on your iPhone.” Apple’s intent might have been to distance themselves from the industry practice of reselling customer data while taking a snide jab at both Amazon’s Alexa and the Google Assistant.

However, it rings hollow in my ears with recent news of misuse of user data by third-party apps on the App Store and the infamous “The Fappening,” which could have been averted if Apple had implemented two-factor authentication on iCloud.

A triple-camera iPhone may be on the way

Speaking of leaks, some renders purporting to be of the next model of iPhone turned up just before CES, as well. I guess pictures of a new iPhone aren’t covered by Apple’s snark.

Those renders (shown above) showed a triple-camera bump on the back of what looks very much like iPhone curved edges. That’s likely the iPhone 11 XS Max (or maybe iPhone 11 Max). The triple-camera bump will likely only be on the top-end iPhone, with dual cameras likely on the smaller iPhone models.

Serial leaker Ice universe has confirmed the render as legit, as has a report in the Wall Street Journal.

Three more iPhones incoming

Also, according to the Journal, Apple will continue the trend of releasing three phones this coming autumn, including an LCD-screened successor to the “struggling XR.”

This might just be because it was already in development and plans can’t be changed so rapidly, so LCD’s fate is still in the air for next year. The report mentions that all of Apple’s iPhones will have OLED screens in 2020, so we’ll have to wait and see.

What do you think of the design? Kind of ugly, right? Let us know down below in the comments or carry the discussion over to our Twitter or Facebook.
