The iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro is about to be announced today, and it’s obvious what to expect: a major focus on camera improvements thanks to the brand new triple-camera system.
While the shape of the overall chassis isn’t altering, but some tweaks to the back of the device. This includes the bigger square camera protrusion; some new color options and matte glass as a substitute for glossy finishes. Photos posted to Slashleaks present another small design change: The Apple logo has been shifted downwards and is now centered horizontally and vertically.
The apple logo has been shifted to fix the bigger triple-camera square. If it maintained its original location, there wouldn’t be much waste between the leaf of the apple and the bottom of the camera bump.
The placement of the brand logo may also act as a sign for users who wish to take advantage of the brand new iPhone 11 bilateral wireless charging features. It’s believed that the iPhone 11 will be capable of wirelessly charging AirPods, by placing the AirPods case on the back of the device. As the current Qi charging coil is centered, the Apple logo could be an ideal match for the order.
The centered Apple logo may further corroborate a report from a supposed Foxconn worker a few weeks ago. In a forum post, the leaker said that Apple would take away the ‘iPhone’ text from the back of the device this year. This would imply the back of the phone would be entirely bare of branding aside from the Apple logo. With merely one element to position, it could make aesthetic sense to center it.
