Top Stories: ‘iPhone 11 Pro’ Rumors, iOS 13 Beta 7, Apple Card Hands-On

We’re just a few weeks away from the unveiling of this year’s iPhone lineup as well as the official release of iOS 13 and Apple’s other new operating system versions, and we’re continuing to hear hardware rumors as Apple tidies up its software.

Apple Card continues to roll out to more users in the U.S., while there’s a new controversy over Apple preventing users of its latest iPhones with batteries replaced outside of authorized sales channels from seeing battery health information. As always, read on for a full recap of the biggest stories from this week.

‘iPhone 11 Pro’ Rumored to Be Name of High-End 2019 iPhone

Apple is widely expected to unveil a trio of new iPhones next month, and ahead of time, an anonymous Twitter account with a proven track record has suggested that at least one of the models will have “Pro” within its name, such as “iPhone Pro” or “iPhone 11 Pro.”


This year’s iPhone lineup is expected to include two higher-end 5.8-inch and 6.5-inch OLED models and one lower-end 6.1-inch LCD model. Rumored features include triple-lens rear cameras on the higher-end models, larger batteries, two-way charging of AirPods, and more.

Read our 2019 iPhones roundup for a recap of all rumors to date.

Apple Releases iOS 13 Beta 7

Apple has seeded the seventh betas of iOS 13 and iPadOS to developers for testing. As usual, we are highlighting any new features and changes that we discover in the latest betas.


Apple has also seeded the seventh developer betas of watchOS 6 and tvOS 13. Corresponding public betas, excluding watchOS, have also been released.

Hands-On With Apple Card

In a YouTube video this week, we highlighted the Apple Card sign up process, how it works, what it looks like, and how the titanium card feels in person for those who haven’t yet had a chance to sign up.


Apple Card began rolling out earlier this month to a limited number of users who signed up to be notified, with a wider launch to follow later this month. Apple has shared details on how Apple Card applications are evaluated.

2019 iPhones Might Not Have ‘iPhone’ Branding on the Back

This year’s iPhones won’t have “iPhone” branding on the back of the devices, according to a long list of leaks from an alleged Foxconn employee.


On a Chinese Q&A website, the person also claimed that at least one of the new iPhones will be available in an all-new dark green color with a matte appearance, in line with a few previous rumors.

This information has not been confirmed and could certainly be faked, so this falls into the “sketchy rumor” category for now.

Triple-Lens Rear Cameras Rumored for Next iPad Pro Range, Dual-Lens for New Entry-Level iPad

In addition to the iPhone, a report this week claimed that Apple plans to add a triple-lens rear camera to the next 11-inch and 12.9-inch iPad Pro models.


Meanwhile, the rumored 10.2-inch iPad is said to feature a dual-lens rear camera array like the iPhone XS series. This model is expected to succeed the low-cost 9.7-inch iPad in Apple’s tablet lineup.

Reports are conflicting about whether the next iPad Pro models will be released in the fall, like last year, or in spring 2020.

Apple on iPhone Battery Locking Issue: We Want to Make Sure Battery Replacement is Done Properly

Apple has confirmed that it introduced a feature last year on the iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, and iPhone XR that notifies customers if iOS is unable to verify that a new, genuine battery was installed by a certified technician following repair.


While repair website iFixit described the feature as a “dormant software lock,” Apple has responded by saying “we take the safety of our customers very seriously and want to make sure any battery replacement is done properly.” Apple also says the notification does not impact the ability to use an iPhone after an unauthorized repair.

Corephotonics Sues Apple Again Over Dual-Lens Cameras in iPhone 7 Plus and Later [Updated]

Update: Corephotonics has filed an additional lawsuit against Apple in August 2019, alleging that the dual-lens camera systems in the iPhone 7 Plus, iPhone 8 Plus, iPhone X, iPhone XS, and iPhone XS Max infringe on 10 of its patents.

Original story from November 2017 follows.


Corephotonics, an Israeli maker of dual-lens camera technologies for smartphones, has filed a lawsuit against Apple this week alleging that the iPhone 7 Plus and iPhone 8 Plus infringe upon four of its patents.


The patents, filed with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office between November 2013 and June 2016, relate to dual-lens camera technologies appropriate for smartphones, including optical zoom and a mini telephoto lens assembly.

U.S. Patent No. 9,402,032

U.S. Patent No. 9,568,712

U.S. Patent No. 9,185,291

U.S. Patent No. 9,538,152

Corephotonics alleges that the two iPhone models copy its patented telephoto lens design, optical zoom method, and a method for intelligently fusing images from the wide-angle and telephoto lenses to improve image quality.

iPhone X isn’t listed as an infringing product, despite having a dual-lens camera, perhaps because the device launched just four days ago.

Corephotonics showed off some of its technologies at Mobile World Congress last year. In particular, it demonstrated software capable of combining the images of two separate camera lenses to create a more detailed picture, including the ability to optically zoom up to 5x with no moving parts.

Corephotonics, founded in 2012, describes itself as a pioneer in the development of dual camera technologies for mobile devices. The company’s founders, led by Tel Aviv University professor Dr. David Mendlovic, have decades of experience in the fields of optics and miniature digital cameras.

In its complaint, a copy of which was reviewed by MacRumors, Corephotonics said one of its first acts as a company was to contact Apple. Despite receiving “many encouraging reports” and “positive feedback” from the iPhone maker, the companies never reached a license of any kind.

As one of its first acts as a company, Corephotonics reached out to Apple in the hopes of establishing a strategic partnership. Corephotonics received many encouraging reports and positive feedback from Apple about its technology, but the parties never concluded a license to the Corephotonics technology.

Corephotonics said Apple proceeded to release the iPhone 7 Plus with a dual-lens camera in September 2016, and has been willfully infringing upon its patents since that time. Corephotonics says Apple has knowledge of its patents, one of which the iPhone maker allegedly submitted as prior art in a patent application.

Corephotonics even claims Apple’s “lead negotiator” said it “would take years and millions of dollars in litigation” before Apple might owe anything.

In fact, after one failed effort to negotiate a license, Apple’s lead negotiator expressed contempt for Corephotonics’ patents, telling Dr. Mendlovic and others that even if Apple infringed, it would take years and millions of dollars in litigation before Apple might have to pay something.

It’s worth noting that Apple acquired another Israeli camera company, LinX Imaging, back in 2015. LinX also specialized in creating multi-aperture camera equipment for mobile devices, and Apple presumably incorporated some of its technologies into the iPhone 7 Plus and iPhone 8 Plus cameras.

Corephotonics is seeking damages of an amount to be proven in a jury trial, plus permanent injunctive relief. The complaint was filed with a U.S. District Court in Northern California, where Apple is headquartered.
