Looking back on Apple’s past schedule, the company is believed to be unveiling 2018’s iPhone lineup in less than a month. This time around, fans aren’t so concerned about what the smartphones might look like than they are about their names, seeing as how the company changed its titling sequence with the iPhone X last year.
Per German Apple news site Macerkopf, mobile service providers in Germany are already prepping for iPhone preorders on Friday, 14 September. This falls on the same week as the purported debut date for the new phones, which are predicted to closely follow iPhone X’s design.
Judging by Apple’s previous keynote dates, this year’s iPhone reveal is expected to fall on either Tuesday, 11 September or Wednesday, 12 September. For obvious reasons, though, Apple isn’t likely to hold its next event on 11 September.
After opening for preorders on 14 September, Macerkopf says Apple will start shipping the iPhones on Friday, 21 September.
Apple is slated to send out media invites for the keynote presentation at the end of this month; that’s when you’ll know the iPhone launch dates for sure.
According to schematics said to come from Apple insiders, the tech giant will reveal three iPhones with notches and end-to-end displays. The 2018 range is likely to include a 5.8-inch OLED model, a 6.5-inch ‘Plus’ version, and a mid-tier LCD smartphone measuring 6.1 inches.
