iPhone 11 Won't Come With Apple Pencil, Reports Sadly Suggest

By Sarah Basford on at

Apple's unveiling of the new iPhone 11 series is mere hours away, but an eleventh-hour leak from renowned Apple analyst, Ming-Chi Kuo, has suggested it's going to be missing a few features. Notably, it won't come with Apple Pencil support like we all predicted (and hoped) it would.

Ming-Chi Kuo, known for his razor sharp Apple predictions, has reported the iPhone 11 series won't support the Apple Pencil, according to MacRumours, despite persistent rumours to the contrary.

The models also won't feature wireless charging, another persistent rumour, but will instead come with a fast charger in the box, Kuo says.

These two features were expected to be important selling points as the iPhone 11 leaks seemed to lack anything substantial especially when compared to recent and upcoming phones like the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 and the Google Pixel 4.

Kuo said he believes iPhone sales will face a decline of around five-to-10 per cent over the next year due to the lack of "innovate selling points".

Apple's iPhone 11 launch can be livestreamed from its event page or viewed on YouTube. It'll be live at 6pm BST.
