Refusal from 3D Touch, old charging and two SIM-cards: what Apple said nothing about at the presentation of iPhone 11

At yesterday's presentation in Cupertino, Apple presented the new iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max smartphones

(and not only). But several important points were not mentioned at the event, which we will tell you about.

Apple moved

The first thing that catches your eye is the new location of the corporate logo in the shape of an apple. If previously it was in the center at the top, it has now moved to the middle. Why they did this is unclear.

No 3D touch

As rumors said, Apple refused allnew models from the 3D Touch function, which appeared in iPhones in 2015. Now the module responsible for recognizing hard presses on the display has disappeared on all three models.

Instead, smartphones, like last year's iPhone XR, received Haptic Touch technology, which allows you to imitate gestures familiar to users using holds.

Most likely, in the next generations Apple will finally switch to under-screen fingerprint scanners, so it’s time to “bury” 3D Touch, which requires an additional layer in the display.


Finally, Apple has started packaging its flagshipscharger with support for fast charging with a USB-C connector and a power of 18 W. True, this only applies to the older iPhone 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max. The iPhone 11 still contains the old 5W charger in the box, although the smartphone supports fast charging.

Dual SIM

New models have two SIM card slots,however, such versions will only be sold in Hong Kong and China. In other countries, smartphones will arrive either with one card or with a second eSIM (which is not available everywhere).


iPhone 11, 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max receivedin addition to the A13 Bionic processor, the U1 chip, which provides support for AirDrop technology. It is a short-range wireless communication technology that is more energy efficient than GPS, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi.

AirDrop works simply: the smartphone itself finds iPhones with the function enabled. After that, just point your gadget at it and the transfer of the necessary files will begin.

Here's how the manufacturer describes this feature:“Apple's new U1 chip uses ultra-wideband spatial awareness technology to enable iPhone 11 to accurately detect the location of other U1-equipped Apple devices. Think GPS at the scale of your living room.”

Four headphones at once

You can connect two pairs of headphones to iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max. After updating to iOS 13, some other models will also receive support.
