Apple just announced the next wave of iPhones, iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max. There are lots of new and interesting features over the three phones, most revolving around their stylish, giant new cameras. Although there is much to be excited about, it seems that Apple left a few ideas on the cutting room floor. Some features rumored to be coming to the new iPhone 11 did not end up in the end product, including two-way wireless charging, something that already exists in some of its competitors.
As a rule, there always seem to be at least a couple of features that come to Android phones before Apple decides to commit. Here are some of the features you might miss if you download an iPhone 1
Reverse wireless charging

Before the iPhone 11 announcement, it was rumored that the new iPhone would add to two-way or "reverse" wireless charging support. With this feature, you can not only charge your phone with a wireless charging pad, but also charge another phone or device by stacking it on top of your phone.
As useful as it can be in Android phones like the Galaxy S10, it seems like a particularly useful feature for iPhone users, given how many people own iPhones and Apple Watches and Airpods, all of which support wireless charging. (Technically, the Airpods case supports wireless charging, but you get the idea).
Apple pen support

Another rumor about advance notice which unfortunately turned out to be false, iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro will not add support for the company's smart stylus, Apple Pencil. Sure, you can buy a stylus and use it to better handle your difficult iPhone 11 Pro Max, but it wouldn't give you the software improvements the pencil brings to the table – the ability to draw thinner and thicker lines by using different amounts of printing and gesture controls.
While there are no phones that support the Apple Pen, Samsung's Galaxy Note 10 comes with a smart pen, the S Pen, which offers some of the same gesture controls, as well as air controls, that allow you to control certain aspects of the phone by moving the pen. For example, you can browse your photo gallery by dragging the pen in the air rather than on the phone.

Although the fifth generation mobile broadband or "5G" has just rolled out sporadically across the country, it would be nice to have a phone that could take advantage of the blazing fast speeds when you happen to find them.
Apple said from the start that it did not plan to add 5G support to this year's iPhone. Realistically, it's probably good because it's pretty hard to take advantage of it right now. Still, there are a whole bunch of high-end Android phones already doing it, so there's only one thing even a next-gen iPhone can't do.
Available in: Most Android phones (except Pixel 3 and Samsung Galaxy Fold)
This is a cheap shot as it is not a new problem, but it is one of the things Apple refuses seemingly to consider year after year. Many, if not most, Android phones have a MicroSD slot, which allows you to add additional storage space to your phone. (It also lets you transfer large files from one device to another without uploading and downloading them, which is handy if you record a lot of video.) Of course, Apple has a big incentive not to add it – to add hard disk space is the primary upgrade path for every iPhone model – but that makes its absence no less obnoxious.
A headphone jack
