Apple fans might have perceived this as a betrayal of the famous brand design philosophy, but the iPhone 11 could have dragged in its competitor’s long-standing feature.
One of the unmistakable features of the Samsung Galaxy Note is its famous S Pen – the stylus, which turns it into a real blue tablet, unlike other ordinary smartphones. However, a recent rumor claims that the Apple Pencil may be compatible with the iPhone 11, presumably for artistic input, like the iPad Pro.
In its Q3 earnings report, Citi Research reported that, as Business Insider reports, it expects “iPhone pencil/stylus support” will become a feature for the upcoming iPhone 11. This will be the first time this feature is available on the iPhone. a series of devices that famously defended full touch input for mobile phones, setting the standard for the industry.
It’s time to shake off this (in) the famous quote from Steve Jobs again: “Who wants the stylus? You have to get them, and put them away, and you lose them — disgusting! Apple, no doubt, hopes that its loyal fans will not accept this as a betrayal of the ideal of Steve Jobs, because in this case, he was extremely important. I mean using the stylus for navigation, not for design or sketching.

Pencil support is not the only new feature that Apple presents in its line of smartphones. For example, we expect to see a triple-block camera on the iPhone along with a brand new A13 chip to launch the upcoming iOS 13 mobile operating system.
And although Apple accepts replicas from its largest competitor of smartphones, Samsung also does not stand still; Galaxy Note 10 will be released on August 7th, and we expect a lot of new features to be commended, such as a much larger display, increased battery capacity (and fast charging), as well as, of course, the return of the S Pen.
