2020 iPhone: Two key rumored features, detailed Good news about 5G and bad news about the camera -- the latest rumors about the 2020 iPhones paint a clearer picture of what we can expect from Apple next year.

iPhone 11 Pro. Triple-camera system with Ultra Wide, Wide and Telephoto. Night mode. Super Retina XDR. A 13 Bionic. Up to five hours more battery life. iPhone 11 Pro. And then there was Pro. A transformative triple‑camera system that adds tonnes of capability without complexity.

iOS 13 brings improvements across the entire system — from the cool new Dark Mode to major app updates and new ways to help you protect your privacy. A streamlined editing experience gives you powerful new tools and better control over effects. Adjustment dials make it easy to apply an edit.

Apple's rumored venture into smart glasses did not come to fruition at the Apple iPhone 11 Pro event on Tuesday, but they're still an imminent possibility, as code found in the upcoming release of the company's iOS 13 mobile software suggests.

On Twitter on Tuesday, developer Steven Troughton-Smith pointed out that the iOS 13 beta now contains StarBoard frameworks, Apple's shell system for stereo augmented reality apps. The iOS 13 gold master also includes a readme file for how employees can run these AR apps on an iPhone , if they don't have access to Apple's headset device, codenamed "Garta." The code suggests that the headset device could be worn or held.

When will Apple announce the iPhone 11 in 2019?

When will Apple announce the iPhone 11 in 2019? We predict the exact date when Apple will unveil the iPhone 11, 11R and 11 Max.

Apple today introduced the new iPhone 11 , iPhone 11 Pro, and iPhone 11 Pro Max at Steve Jobs Theater. Apple says the glass is more durable, and I really do like how it is one piece, with no seam on the camera bump. So let's talk about the camera bump: it's big.

The iPhone 11 for 2019 should bring significant design changes along with a major camera upgrade. We are just a couple of days away from the Sept. 10 launch date for Apple 's new iPhones . By eliminating the feature, Apple could save some cash on producing each iPhone and increase profits.

Rumors that Apple Glasses were on the way started in 2017. In August 2018, Apple acquired Akonia Holographics, a startup that produces lenses for AR glasses.

Earlier this year, the rumor mill kicked into high gear when Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo said Apple glasses could be ready as early as 2020. But in July, Digitimes reported on a rumor that the glasses project had been suspended for the time being, as the product was not yet ready or at a competitive enough price.

Despite this, in September, internal builds of iOS 13 were found to include an app that can transform into a head-mounted mode, MacRumors reported. The iOS 13 code also included the internal file describing a system shell for stereo AR-enabled apps, and the Garta AR device, according to the report. A number of other strings referenced AR, as well as "views" and "scenes," they found.

There’s a new Face ID hack, but you have nothing to worry about

There’s a new Face ID hack, but you have nothing to worry about Researchers at the Black Hat security conference this week highlighted an interesting, and somewhat impractical, way to fool Apple's Face ID.

Apple ’s iPhone 11 event is just around the corner Users will be able to receive notifications when their device gets too far away from the tag, preventing them from forgetting the item the tag is attached to. Which of Apple ’s expected announcements at the iPhone 11 event are you most excited to see?

Apple unveiled its latest iPhone lineup Tuesday, bringing even faster processors and even better cameras to one of the most popular smartphone brands in the world. It had all the hallmarks fans have come to expect from an iPhone event , as the product line enters its 13 th year.

Apple is also working on a wireless headset for both AR and VR, slated for 2020, CNET's Shara Tibken exclusively wrote last year.

Even if the glasses are announced within the next year, it's unlikely that they would hit the market in the immediate future.

At the Tuesday event, Apple did announce the iPhone 11, 11 Pro and 11 Max phones, which include new features such as an upgraded camera at lower-than-usual pricing, but no major changes in form or function.

The potential of Apple Glasses

A future release of Apple Glasses is being paved by Apple's mobile AR platform, ARKit, which launched in 2017 and got a new update as part of iOS 13 at WWDC in June. They would put Apple in competition in the AR space with Microsoft HoloLens and the Magic Leap One.

Apple Glasses, however, would have the advantage of being far smaller than a full AR or VR headset -- marking Apple's chance to take the lead in the consumer smart glasses space. Google Glass was a famous attempt to offer a set of smart glasses in 2013, but Google pivoted Glass to business uses in 2017.

Shipments of AR glasses are projected to surpass 150,000 in 2019, and to hit 2.7 million devices in 2023, according to an August report from CCS Insight. These glasses will start gaining traction among consumers within the next few years, the firm predicts. "If a heavyweight in consumer electronics like Apple or Samsung gets behind smart glasses it could kick-start the market," Leo Gebbie, senior analyst for VR and AR at CCS Insight, said in a release at the time.
