2018 iPhone: Rumors, release date, and prices

Apple iPhone is undoubtedly the most desired smartphone on the market. Apple launches new iPhone models every year, with a lot of changes and features. Last year, the Cupertino company announced three new iPhone models to celebrate the 10th anniversary of iPhone, including iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, and iPhone X.

iPhone X is a premium iPhone model that marks the biggest design change Apple has ever made on an iPhone. Apple’s iPhone X was not widely welcomed at launch due to its staggering price tag. However, the X quickly topped the list of the best-selling phones in the first three months of the year.

Apple will be unveiling new iPhone models at the company’s annual September event. This means that we are now over four months away from the launch event. Rumors regarding the next generation iPhone have been out there for months, giving users a glimpse of what Apple will show off this year.

With that in mind, in the section below, we are going to give you a preview of what’s coming into this year’s iPhone models.

  1. Release date

Apple has a long-time tradition of launching new iPhone models at its September event and this year is no different. Tech experts say that the Cupertino company will announce all new iPhone models at its event in September. This goes against what we heard in previous reports that Apple will debut iPhone SE 2 in June.

Back in 2016, Apple unveiled the original iPhone SE, a new 4-inch iPhone that sports the same design as iPhone 5s. The iPhone SE is currently one of the hottest items in emerging markets like India and China. The company received more than 3 million pre-orders for the device in China.

Some reports say that the new iPhone models will launch to the public shortly after the unveiling event. Last year, Apple pushed back the launch of the iPhone X to November due to supply issues. The company is speeding up the production to meet a huge demand this year.

  1. What will new iPhone models be called?

It remains unknown what Apple will call its iPhone models this year. Tech experts say that Apple may re-launch the S series in 2018. Last year, Apple removed its “S” lineup, instead, going straight to iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus. However, tech experts say that Apple will not revert to its S series this year.

Sources say that Apple will debut three iPhone models, including iPhone 11, iPhone X Plus, and iPhone X2. Moreover, the iPhone 11 will target mid-range segment, with its affordable price tag. However, the device will include support for premium features like wireless charging and Face ID.

Tech experts say that there will be no iPhone 9 coming out this year. The Cupertino company killed the iPhone 9 last year for reasons still unknown.

  1. iPhone SE 2

Apple iPhone SE is widely welcomed in India and China. The SE’s huge success in emerging countries may pave the way for the second generation device. Rumors have suggested that the device will be simply called iPhone SE 2. This goes against what we heard in previous rumors that the device will have a new name.

In terms of specs, rumors say that the SE 2 will feature Apple’s A10 chip to offer a much-improved performance and better support for AR features. Besides, the device will feature LCD display this year.

  1. Camera

Apple has been gradually improving the camera on its iPhone. Apple first introduced a dual-camera setup on its iPhone 7 Plus, offering a better picture quality in low-light conditions. According to rumors, this year’s iPhone models will feature a triple camera setup, allowing for a better zooming functionality.

In reality, a triple camera setup is not something new out there, as we have already seen it on Huawei’s new P20 Pro. If this is the case, Apple will have its upper hand over its rivals out there. Let’s wait and see.

  1. Apple Pencil

Apple Pencil is one of the highlights of iPad Pro lineup. This year, Apple officially added Apple Pencil support for its standard 9.7 inch iPad series. Sources say that Apple Pencil will hit iPhone models this year. Apple Pencil support will pave the way for a bigger iPhone. Rumors have suggested that the upcoming device will feature a 6.5-inch display.

Apple has been improving its Apple Pencil since the launch day, expanding its usefulness just beyond being able to sketch your ideas and take notes.
