According to the supply chain news, TSMC will start mass production of Apple's A13 chip this month.

But the real surprise is what you'll be able to do with the rumored third camera.The 2019 iPhones should be getting a third camera with an ultra-wide lens.

On the other hand, it's important to note that the other iPhones launching this year could come with a triple-camera setup on the back, so iPhone XR would continue to be positioned as the more affordable version of the three. However, the Galaxy S10 has almost closed the gap with the Snapdragon 855 processor. The latter has already proven to be the most powerful chipset Apple has ever made, and the new A13 will indeed be better as well.

According to sources described as familiar with the matter, Apple is expected to use the A13 chip in all three successors to last year's models, the iPhone XR, iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max. Apple is also working on an auto-correction feature to fit people back into a photo who may have been accidentally cut out. This is a feature that Samsung introduced on its Galaxy S10 series of handsets, so it was only a matter of time before Apple caught up. That's widely expected to be an ultra-wide lens, with the trio of sensors arranged in a square rather than the rectangle of the current dual-camera phones. The successor to the iPhone XR will install a second camera.

In terms of design, the Bloomberg report says that the iPhone XS and iPhone XS will both be about a "half a milimeter thicker". But the reporters also provided some additional details about the new phones, confirming numerous rumors and reports that have been floating around the internet. It's not clear how much of a bump this might cause. This will allow the back of the phone to charge the AirPods or other Qi-compatible phones.
