According to reports, Apple‘s upcoming flagship smartphone will resemble the design of the current iPad Pro more than the latest iPhone 11 Pro. The device is expected to have flat steel edges and a flat screen similar to the iPhone 5. However, the bezels are expected to be much smaller with an updated camera similar to the current iPad.
