Every year, Apple launches new iPhones in September. Now we know the day that this year's iPhones will be officially unveiled: September 10.
So what do we know about these upcoming iPhones and, perhaps more importantly, are they worth waiting for?
iPhone 11 Release Date
As we mentioned above, the next generation of iPhones is set to be unveiled on September 10. We don't know where, or what time, but the second Tuesday in September should be marked in your calendars.
Technically, Apple hasn't confirmed this date yet, but assets discovered in the iOS 13 beta code (the operating system that will be launched at the same time as the new iPhones) point to September 10 as the release date.
So that's when the iPhones will be revealed. But what will they look like?
iPhone 11 Rumored Line-up
We saw three iPhones launch last year: The cheap-ish iPhone XR, the regular iPhone XS, and beefed-up iPhone XS Max. And you should expect a similar line-up this year, though with slightly different names.
Apple is expected to call at least one of the new models the iPhone 11 Pro. So we could have the iPhone XS replaced by the iPhone 11 Pro, with an iPhone 11 Pro Max replacing the iPhone XS Max. This might indicate that the cheaper XR replacement will simply be called the iPhone 11. Confused? So are we.
iPhone 11 Specs
While we're not certain exactly what the next generation of iPhones will be called, we do know some solid details from the phones' spec sheets.
The iPhone XR replacement, for example, is set to get an extra rear camera, giving two rear cameras in total. The single rear camera is one of our major complaints about the cut-price iPhone XR — phones that cost $750 should really have more than one camera.
However, our biggest issue with the XR is the phone's lacklustre LCD screen. Unfortunately, its iPhone 11 replacement also looks set to have an LCD screen — we'll be interested to see if there's a major improvement over the outgoing model.
Beyond this, the more expensive iPhones look set to gain an unsightly camera bump. We still can't quite believe that Apple — a company so obsessed with sleek designs — is going to add such a thing to the back of its most important product. We hope a saving grace will be revealed on the 10th. Watch this space.
