Analyst says 2019 Apple iPhone models will have USB-C port and in-display Touch ID
We already know that the 2019 Apple iPhone models are expected to look very similar to the 2018 versions. Some believe that the only difference will be more AR capabilities. However, according to a column in Forbes written by Jean Baptiste Su, Vice-President and Principal Analyst at Atherton Research, the 2019 Apple iPhone units will feature a USB-C port and will come equipped with an in-screen Touch ID fingerprint scanner.

A smaller notch is also rumored to be onboard the 2019 iPhones, and that makes sense. As the technology found in the notch shrinks in size, Apple should be able to reduce the size of the notch as well. In addition, Apple could be adding a TrueDepth Camera to the back of the 2019 iPhones. Unlike the structured light method currently used on the front-facing version of the camera, Apple is said to be considering using the "Time of Flight" method for the back of the 2019 models. This is a less expensive system that is easier to manufacturer than the current method.

Apple dropped the proprietary Lightning port on the iPad Pro last year, and many are hoping that the same thing happens to the iPhone this year. The move to USB-C might make it easier for iPhone users to find accessories for their handset. It also could help them find cheaper alternatives when they need to replace their charger.
