|Amid the usual fanfare, Apple is expected to reveal its latest iPhone developments later this year with the launch of an update to its premium iPhone X and two new smartphones including a smaller model and its largest model ever.|
The California tech giant normally keeps its plans tightly under wraps, and this year is no exception. But there are a handful of rumours and reports leaking out which hint at what we may see when Apple debuts the new devices.
Last year, Apple released one of its biggest smartphone upgrades in years with its tenth anniversary iPhone. The iPhone X (or “ten” as they like to call it) presented a major design shift with an all-screen front, a dual camera, wireless charging and facial recognition technology. This year the company will be expected to improve on that design. While the iPhone X was a critical success, it was considered hugely expensive at £1,000 and, while profitable for Apple, has not sold in huge numbers like some of its older devices.
iPhone 2018 release date
Apple normally releases its latest iPhone in the first couple of weeks of September. Last year, the iPhone X was launched on September 12 and Apple normally reveals its smartphone two weeks after German technology conference IFA, which this year is taking place in the last week of August. Then it could be a couple of months before Apple’s new products hit the shelves. Last year its iPhone 8 was released in the weeks after it was unveiled, but the iPhone X was not available to buy until November.
What will the new iPhone be called?
Apple fans will be reduced to guesswork on this question. The new phone could be called the iPhone Xs, some have suggested, returning Apple to its naming convention of adding an “s” to its new generation of smartphones. Some have posited it could be called the iPhone 9, but this would mean taking the iPhone naming out of sequence. There have been suggestions that the largest version of the new iPhone will be called the iPhone X Plus.
