Apple is rumored to be releasing two new colors for the 2019 iPhone XR, replacing two options for last year's version of the smartphone.

Apple uses the A12 Bionic chip to power its current iPhones, but routinely updates the processors during its yearly product refresh. Furthermore, the new iPhone models are said to be codenamed D43 and D44 for the flagship iPhones and N104 to iPhone XR successor. Production kicked off in April, Bloomberg's sources suggest, with Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co. - or TSMC - starting up test runs of its manufacturing. But the reporters also provided some additional details about the new phones, confirming numerous rumors and reports that have been floating around the internet. On the iPhone 11 and 11 Max there's a trio of cameras, but they are positioned in a triangular configuration with the flash and microphone positioned above and below within the square.

For the uninitiated, the iPhone XR is the first handset since the iPhone 5C to be launched in a wide range of colour options.

As part of its annual iPhone refresh, Apple typically includes significant upgrades to the main processor, boosting speeds and battery life. It's expected to be able to put 5nm chips in the 2020 iPhone. The reports further mention that there could be around three new iPhone models this year as we already saw before.

Finally, on May 17, the device will be available in all T-Mobile stores, from, and unlocked directly from OnePlus . Talking about the standard OnePlus 7 variant, the device will feature a Bumper Nylon case similar to women fabric.

In comparison, iPhone 11r will have a dual-camera array comprising the 12MP standard and telephoto lenses.

The report adds that the third camera on the XS and XS Max sequels will have an ultra wide-angle lens for "larger and more detailed photos".

Those cameras will fit into a "square on the top left", Bloomberg wrote, which does comport with leaked images purporting to show just that. Apple also plans a feature that lets users charge the latest AirPods and other devices by putting them on the back of the new iPhones.
