Yesterday, an analyst report from Nomua predicted that Apple's 2019 iPhones will not feature any physical changes. This comes as the iPhone X design was introduced in 2017 and made its way to the iPhone CSS, iPhone CSS Max, and iPhone XR.
Do you think this is the right move on Apple's part? What do you want Apple to focus on with the 2019 iPhones?

The proposal that the 2019 iPhones will not feature any design changes will come as Apple is bottling reports of slowing iPhone sales. Some notable Apple suppliers have sliced guidance for the holiday quarter, leading to speculation that Apple itself has cut iPhone orders.
When it comes to the 2019 iPhones, there are some things that apple can focus on. Traditionally, Apple almost always focuses on major camera updates. Potential features for 2019 include a response to Google's popular night vision feature, as well as general software enhancements to help the iPhone keep pace with the pixel devices.
Another possible thing for Apple to focus on is the price of iPhones. One of the most common complaints people have from the latest generation of iPhone is that they are more and more expensive. Of course, Apple has almost never made a point to focus on lowering prices between each year's iPhone updates, but it's possible that change in 2019 if hardware design stays the same.
Otherwise, Apple may focus on hardware performance, although one could argue that such improvements are getting harder for the average user to comment on real-world use. Other possible changes include new features, software enhancements, design updates, 5G support (though unambiguous), Face Id improvements, Apple Pencil support, and more.
Apple is a couple of years with the same general iPhone, of course, not unheard of. Between the iPhone 6 and the iPhone 8, overall design changes are minimal between each year's revision. What do you think about this strategy? What do you want the 2019 iPhone updates to focus on? Let us know in the review below (pick up to 3 items) and promoted in the comments.
