IPhone 11 preorders start strong as consumers flock to the Pro models

Apple iPad Pro to sport triple cameras, hints new leak

Apple sees more rosy prospects in China with latest iPhone release

This tibdit comes from frequent (and reliable) Apple leaker Sonny Dickson, who obtained what he claims is a photo of "a final design mockup" of the upcoming 11-inch iPad Pro model. Moreover, compared to the number of smartphone and camera gimbals you can buy now, there are few if any that can accommodate a tablet the size of even the 11-inch iPad Pro. Apple will probably market the new video taking and editing capabilities as the main highlight upgrade for the new iPad Pro, though that may not appeal to a wide set of customers.

Cumulative sales aside, the popularity of the iPhone 11 Pro models in particular suggests that Apple may be poised for a record-breaking quarter this holiday shopping season. What we're most interested in is nestled away in the upper left hand corner: The camera array.

Dickson has been the source of several rumors over the past few years, the most recent being the revelation that the iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro contain hardware for bilateral charging despite the feature not even being mentioned by Apple.

In a follow-up research note with TF International Securities today, seen by MacRumors, Kuo now specifies that the iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max models have accounted for 55 percent of pre-orders to date. If, however, the camera on the upcoming iPad Pro is the main focus in terms of upgrades, that could be a little disappointing considering people don't really take a lot of pictures on their tablets.

Ma Ke, a 33-year-old white-collar worker in Beijing, said the green version of iPhone 11 with 128G storage was out of stock when she wanted to book one on the official website of Apple on Friday night. We'll see if the same holds true for 2019 soon enough, so stay tuned.
