Apple’s Supposed Logo Update On New iPhones Might Make You Uneasy

If multiple reports are to be believed, the logo on the rear of Apple’s 2019 iPhones will be shifted downwards, deviating from its original position since the iPhone’s debut in 2007.
While the forthcoming lineup—dubbed by outsiders as the ‘iPhone 11’ or ‘iPhone XI’ series—is expected to mirror the designs of iPhone X and iPhone XS, a number of leaks suggest that the Apple icon will be relocated to the middle. These include a supposed statement by a Foxconn employee and purported case designs.
If the rumors are true, this will be the first time in 12 years that the emblem isn’t located near the top of the handsets.
The relocation might make longtime Apple device owners uncomfortable, but renowned product leaker Ben Geskin urges that you forget everything you know as it is all “a matter of habit.” Fast Company also points out that the centered logo brings visual balance and adequate whitespace to the iPhone.
There’s likely another good reason Apple could have made tweaks to the ‘iPhone 11’s logo placement. The flagship model is expected to house triple cameras on its rear, and it might have been necessary for the tech giant to move the symbol downwards to accommodate the extra lens.
