The countdown to the launch of Apple’s iPhone 11 is well and truly underway, so we thought you might like a handy place to catch up on all of the latest leaks, news, rumors, and details ahead of the new model’s reveal later this year.
Between now and the launch, which looks likely to be sometime in September or October, we’ll be continuously updating this page with all the latest information.
Apple keeps its cards close to its chest with new products, however, so it’s worth keeping in mind that a lot of what you’ll see here will be based on leaks and rumors, and not always from official channels. That said, there are plenty of reliable and authoritative sources that get things right on a consistent basis. Check out what we know so far about the Apple iPhone 11 below.
iPhone 11 release date
The Apple iPhone 11’s release date has yet to be revealed, but you can expect it to drop sometime in September or early October. This would be in line with earlier iPhone models.
If we were forced to speculate about a specific launch date, September 17 or September 18 looks the most likely. Apple usually unveils its big products on a Wednesday or Thursday, and Europe’s biggest tech show, IFA 2019 in Berlin, is taking place on September 6-11 this year. It seems unlikely that Apple would want to launch its new iPhone in the same week.
Preorders tend to become available on the Friday of the announcement (that would be September 19, if our guess is right), with an in-store launch the following week.
iPhone 11 design
The design of the Apple iPhone 11 is the subject of much speculation right now. We’re yet to see any leaked designs, but Indian magazine Digit reported that the phone will have an all-glass black back panel with the Apple logo right in the center.
That doesn’t sound like too much of a departure from prior models, but here’s where things get a little more interesting: the magazine also reported that the iPhone 11 will feature a triple-camera setup housed in a square “notch” unit, transforming the look of the entire phone. Check out what that might look like in Digit’s video above.
iPhone 11 specs and features
It goes without saying that a triple-lens iPhone like the one shown above would bring with it significant advancements in the phone’s camera capabilities, so you can expect your pictures to look better on the new model. Aside from the camera, there isn’t too much information about what the phone’s other specification improvements might be.
In November 2018, it was reported that Apple is prepping its future iPhones for 5G, the next generation of cellular networking, promising greater coverage and faster download speeds. But that is more likely to be a feature on the 2020 iPhone rather than the iPhone 11.
There have also been rumors that smaller features such as faster Wi-Fi support, improved Face ID performance and reliability, and USB-C support could be included, although they’re unlikely to be major selling points when the phone is finally unveiled.
iPhone 11 price
Again, we have no firm details as yet, but the Apple iPhone 11 price will likely start at around $999. This is in line with the iPhone XS and iPhone X before it. It would be surprising if the company decided to up the price tag, given it isn’t selling as many iPhones as it had forecasted. There is even speculation Apple might offer a slightly cheaper model this time out.
While we await the release of the iPhone 11, catch up on all the latest Apple news here.
PUMA Unveils Game-Changing Fit Intelligence Technology
PUMA today announced its latest footwear technology. Dubbed Fit Intelligence (Fi), it is the successor to AutoDisc, which launched just two years prior.
According to the German sportswear giant Fi “is designed to automate, fine tune, and adjust performance fit for PUMA footwear.”
With Nike building on its auto-lacing technology with the Adapt BB and adidas forging ahead with its accelerated footwear production at its SPEEDFACTORY locations, PUMA looks to bring its own, game-changing technology to market.
The first Fi footwear to launch is a running shoe that employs a micromotor that powers a cable lacing system. Simply gesturing up or down on the forefoot Fi module tightens or loosens the lacing system. Additionally, it comes with a smart sensing capability that adapts to the shape of the foot of each wearer.
Using an app, sneakerheads can monitor, adjust, and fine tune their Fi-equipped footwear.
“We have created a product that speaks to the future of sport which is life in motion. It’s fast and changing all the time,” said Charles Johnson, PUMA’s Global Director of Innovation.
Fi is the latest step in PUMA’s continued attempt to push the boundaries of performance and lifestyle product. In 1968 PUMA debuted the first laceless sports shoe with Velcro™ straps and followed that up in 1991 with the first cable closure, seen on the PUMA Disc.
Check out images and a video of the technology in action above.
The Fi training shoe will be available for consumers in 2020.

Apple’s Own Version of Netflix Could Launch as Soon as Spring
CEO Tim Cook has been keeping his cards close to his chest regarding Apple’s moves to boost its TV output, but according to a report on The Information, the tech giant is said to be readying content for mid-April ahead of a launch.
In an already saturated streaming market, it’s unclear how Apple intends to differentiate its offering from the services currently on offer, but we do know that it has plans for original content and has poached executives from Sony Pictures to add clout to its offer.
According to The Verge, Apple has already signed deals with Oprah Winfrey to develop new shows, ordered a Hunger Games-style show called See, a thriller series by Glass director M. Night Shyamalan, a series by First Man and La La Land director Damien Chazelle, a Reese Witherspoon and Jennifer Aniston-starring drama about a morning show, and a new space drama from Battlestar Galactica/Outlander creator Ronald D. Moore, among others.
The is no information yet about how much the streaming service will cost, and Apple is yet to reveal an official launch date. Expect updates over the coming months.
This New AR App Lets You Virtually Try on Sneakers
Online shopping from the comfort of your own home is no doubt convenient, but there’s always that lingering problem: not being able to try product on when it comes to clothing and footwear. In an attempt to remedy this, Belarus startup Wannaby presents the Wanna Kicks AR app, which allows you to virtually try sneakers on to see what they look like on-foot.
As Wanna Kicks reminds us, photos of sneakers can sometimes be deceiving, so AR helps ensure that what you see is what you get. To take advantage of Wanna Kicks’ AR technology, simply choose a pair of shoes from the 3D models in the app, then aim your smartphone camera at your feet. You can also move your feet to get a look at different angles, and even walk in the shoes.
Still not sold? You can save a picture of the sneakers on-foot and then share it on social media to see what your friends think.
“Our mission is to break online shopping barriers,” Wannaby CEO Sergey Arkhangelskiy told TechCrunch. “We believe that AR try-on can help customers to shop online and will wash away the difference between online and offline shopping. We see two major problems in the shoe market. Online conversions are quite low, and returns are quite high, in comparison to traditional ‘brick-and-mortar’ shopping. The ability to try sneakers with your phone before buying online should shift conversions, engagement and returns.”
“We’ve built Wanna Kicks for Gen Z and millennials who are interested in buying sneakers and eager to know whether they will fit their style or not,” Arkhangelskiy added. “The AR and AI community will love our launch as well — we’ve accomplished a really difficult task in computer vision and rendering.”
Wanna Kicks is currently in the beta stages for iOS. For more on the innovative AR app, follow here.
