Apple will reportedly release iPhone Pro among 2019 iPhones

Apple is rumored to be launching the first-ever iPhone with a Pro in its name, as part of the lineup of iPhones planned to be released this year.

MacRumors reported that an anonymous Twitter account, which has proven to be a reliable source of Apple information, suggested that one of the 2019 iPhones will carry the Pro moniker, such as the iPhone Pro.

The rumor comes from CoinX, which was the first to leak the names of the iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, and iPhone XR. The account also said that the headphone jack was removed from the 2018 iPad Pro models, among other things, further proving its reliability.

The newest tweet from CoinX comes in the form of a question that is said to reveal part of Apple’s plans for the naming scheme of its 2019 iPhones.

“Pro” for iPhone? Crazy naming schemes over the past few years.

According to MacRumors, it also received an anonymous tip earlier this month that the rumored iPhone with a square camera will be named the iPhone 11 Pro. The tip was not reported as it was unsubstantiated, but that changed in light of CoinX’s tweet.

For the 2019 iPhones, Apple is widely expected to release sequels for 2018’s iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, and iPhone XR in September. Leaked CAD renders reportedly reveal what these three models will look like, with one of the major differences being the triple-camera system inside a square-shaped module.

Apple, however, may be planning to launch two new completely new iPhones this year. There are rumors that the three successors to last year’s iPhone will only receive internal updates, while the two new iPhones will be the ones that will feature triple-lens cameras.

It remains unclear whether the iPhone Pro name will be given to the successor of one of last year’s models, if Apple will only release three iPhones this year, or if it will be given to the two new iPhones, if Apple is planning to launch five new iPhones.

As with any rumor, the iPhone Pro name remains unconfirmed without an official announcement from Apple. Fortunately, fans will only have to wait a month before knowing all about the 2019 iPhones.

Stop putting your wet iPhone in rice — seriously

The world of consumer electronics has its own share of urban myths. Some of them are actually so mainstream that no one even dares question their efficacy. Burying a wet phone in rice is one of them.

Research has repeatedly proved that it’s a futile trick, but for folks that need to hear it from the source itself, well, Apple has also made it clear that the rice-drying trick doesn’t work. Whether you have an iPhone 15 Pro or a model that's a few years old, it's time to stop this useless practice.

I tried the Apple Vision Pro. Here’s why it won’t replace my iPhone

The Apple Vision Pro is one of Apple’s most fascinating new product launches. It’s the first new product line from Apple since the Apple Watch, but the hype around it has been more like when Apple first introduced the original iPhone. Of course, Apple was not the first to the market with a VR/AR headset, but it is definitely what would be considered the most “mainstream” option out there, considering the brand name.

When Apple announced the Apple Vision Pro on June 5, 2023, during its WWDC 2023 keynote, I was excited. After years of rumors, it was finally happening. Preorders started on January 19, 2024, and the  Apple Vision Pro launched on February 2, 2024, in the U.S. The problem? It costs at least $3,500, making it a hard sell for many as a first-generation Apple product.
