Some market researchers think that sales Apple's upcoming iPhone 11 series will disappointed.
Only two months away, the iPhone 11 will be released, rumors of upgrades on the new iPhone series have been appearing for many days, such as higher capacity batteries, reverse wireless charging support or new camera cluster design.
The camera cluster is the most controversial change when switching to a square similar to Huawei's or Google's upcoming Pixel 4. The camera cluster is still in the upper left corner, slightly raised, inside contains LED flash and 3 cameras for 11/11 Max iPhone or 2 cameras for iPhone 11R.
With tedious upgrades, last year's iPhone XS has not so high sales, and that is likely to continue this year. According to the PhoneArena, Jun Zhang analyst from Rosenblatt Securities said that iPhone 11 sales will be disappointing, while the iPad's growth will slow down in the second half of this year.

Zhang also said that sales of products such as HomePod, AirPods, Apple Watch or even a service segment, the current "golden egg", cannot compensate for iPhone revenue.
The focus on the service sector shows the decline of the iPhone since 2015, when iPhone sales hit a record (231.22 million units). In fiscal year 2018, Apple sold 217.72 million iPhones. The decline largely comes from a lack of innovation, not catching up with Android firms.

Zhang estimates Apple's stock price in the next 6-12 months is $ 150 per share, down 25% from the current level of $ 200 per share.
Particularly in the iPhone line in 2020, analyst Ming-Chi Kuo from TF International said that 2 out of 3 devices will support 5G network. The Max version will have a 6.7-inch screen, bigger than the current iPhone XS Max, and the regular version will have a 5.4-inch screen, the third version only has 4G LTE with a 6.1-inch screen like the current iPhone XR.
