Apple iPhone XI to come with three cameras on back

We still prefer the way cameras and LED stacked in a 2x2 arrangement inside the square window of Huawei Mate 20 Pro. There's nothing concrete from Apple's end, but we don't expect much considering how the company likes to keep a low-key even until the day of the official launch, which will take place in September this year. Above the third camera is an LED flash and a microphone on the bottom.

Apple is reportedly getting in on the camera count war by increasing the number of rear cameras to three and significantly expanding the size of the module. The iPhone Xs and Xs Max are still dual-camera phones, but Apple has been known to be late to the game. The flash is aligned with the third sensor, but seems to have no spatial relationship to anything: it's off the center of the curve of the camera patch. Tipster Onleaks partnered with Digit.in has shared what appear to be the first renders of Apple's next flagship device, the iPhone XI. We have no sure way of knowing which of the upcoming phones is shown in the renders, but with such a drastic change in the camera setup, it's probably the top-of-the-line model.

Some TSA officers calling in sick
If you have a flight to the United States coming up, you might want to give yourself a little extra time at the airport. For now, Donald Trump and congressional leaders have met but have yet to find a resolution that will end the shutdown.

CDC: Flu activity increasing in New York City
Last year, flu killed 185 children, the highest number of pediatric flu deaths in a regular flu season, according to the CDC . She adds that many times the season peaks around January and February, so it is not too late to get the flu shot.

Trump hits back at Romney attack
Mr Trump's 2020 campaign manager Brad Parscale also said: " Jealousy is a drink best served warm and Romney just proved it". This behavior is extremely disappointing coming from someone who was the Republican nominee for President in 2012 .

Importantly, Onleaks says these images are based on engineering validation test (EVT) hardware, so the designs could change before the phones arrive in September.

A recent Bloomberg story mentioned that Apple is interested in Sony's new ToF sensors. Below the camera set up the Apple brand logo can be seen like any other previous iPhones. The 3D camera would be able to create 3D depth maps by measuring the time it takes light to bounce off things in a scene. The effect this will have on the 2019 iPhones remains to be seen. There's no doubt the iPhone XI will support wireless charging and have aluminium core - even if it is for the premium models.
