American technology giant Apple is expected to launch three new iPhones in the month of September this year. These smartphones will be the successor to the iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max and the iPhone XR from last year and are poised to feature notable improvements over their predecessors; like more battery, cameras and performance. Now, a fresh reports claim that the upcoming iPhone 11 may also gain support for the Apple Pencil, which is a stylus the company introduced back in the year 2015 with the first iPad Pro.

The aforementioned reports of the iPhone 11 supporting the Apple Pencil arrive from the renown analyst organization Citi Research. If turned out to be true, the upcoming device will be the first from Apple to support the Apple Pencil other than the iPads. While there are two generations of Apple Pencil currently available in the market, it is believed that the iPhone 11 may gain support for the first generation of the stylus. It is because of the different charging mechanism in the second generation. While the first Apple Pencil used a lightning port to replenish its battery, its successor charges by attaching itself to the sides of the iPad Pro. Also, only the new iPad Pros have had support for the second generation Pencil, so it would make sense for Apple to keep it that way for a while.

The report from Citi Research may sound enticing to users wanting stylus support in an iPhone for a while; but it should be taken with a grain of salt. As the organisation is usually known for its accurate financial predictions regarding Apple and not for its predictions of what iPhones will be like in the future, the report may turn out to be nothing but a rumor. Whatever may be the case, the very idea of the iPhone 11 supporting the Apple Pencil will expand the usability of the device. Since the launch is more than a month away, we also do not need to wait too long to confirm our suspicions.
