Top Apple analyst: Major iPhone design revamp happens next year
Apple's new iPhone is just couple dozen hours away as Cupertino is readying for a celebration on Tuesday. Rumors and leaks have been circling the internet for weeks and months, and we've already got a fairly good and reliable guess at what to expect from the new iPhone 11.

Some changes are expected to happen. For example, at least some of the new iPhone models are going to have a new triple camera setup which is setup in a square module, if leaks are to be believed.



However, while this might suggest larger design revamps as well, leading Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo believes that is not going to happen this year, 9to5Mac reports. According to the former KGI Securities analyst, nowadays representing TF International Securities, Apple is going to wait until next year for a major do-over.

Thus it would be the third year in a row that Apple has the same, or at least very similar iPhone design. The design is of course based on the 2017 iPhone X that changed pretty much everything about the iPhone.

The iPhone X brought a full screen display, notch with Face ID, and a new industrial body design.

However, it's not the first time that Apple has prolonged the design for more than two generations. The previous design, seen even in the 2017 iPhone 8, lasted for four generations.

According to Ming-Chin Kuo, the 2020 iPhone (iPhone 12?) will not only include a new design but improvements in camera tech as well as, perhaps most importantly, 5G. Earlier this week report suggested that Apple is developing an in-screen fingerprint sensor that could be heading for the 2020 iPhone.
