The iPhone X was released in November 2017, and the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus fell just in front of it, but the hottest news is right around the iPhone releases in 2018. The rumors about the successor to the iPhone X began speculation about names To incubate cameras, display size and more almost immediately after last year's devices, and since then there have been many new leaked details.
We await the next big iPhone models Includes many features included in the 10th Anniversary Edition, including aesthetics and form factor. As we rely on Apple, these things will contain all the improvements over the last model, big and small, with some added juicy treats. But what exactly will we be holding in our hands when autumn 201
As we approach their official announcement, rumors about the upcoming 2018 iPhones have begun to gain momentum. Leaks should still be taken with a grain of salt, at least until we approach the presumed fall issue of 2018. That said, here's what we know so far about the upcoming 2018 iPhone models, which should not be confused with the rumored new iPhone SE model (which will probably not even happen).
When the new models are announced [19659005Thursday30AugustedAppleE-MailtoJournalistsinvitedthemtoa[GatherRound] event on 12 September at 10 o'clock in the morning for a Gather Round event. The event will be held at the Steve Jobs Theater in Cupertino, CA, as it was at the last event. The "round" mention and circle on the invitees obviously point to the circular Apple Park building, though it may still have a hidden meaning unknown. Together with the announcement of this year's iPhones, Apple will present the final version of iOS 12.
When they are released (and when pre-orders begin)
CNET speculated that the flagships officially released about nine days after the revelation, and will be available on Friday, September 21st, claiming that the iPhones for this year can be pre-ordered two days after the announcement. According to MACerkopf, German providers will accept pre-orders for the new iPhones starting September 14, 2018.
There will be 3 iPhone models
Recent rumors suggest that Apple will launch three models of the iPhone next year Just like in the case of iPhone 8, 8 Plus and X.
Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo of KGI Securities suggested that there will be a nearly identical successor to the iPhone X 5.8 inches, a "plus" version at 6.5 inches and a medium at 6.1 inches. Later rumors suggested that the 6.1-inch model might actually be the iPhone SE 2, but we do not bet on it because the size should (hopefully) stay at 4 inches.
With the announcement just around the corner, credible leaks have now surfaced to further solidify this rumor. No less a person than the famous Leaker Ben Geskin has recently released pictures of seemingly non-functional dummy units of the upcoming iPhones. The size differences between the three models as well as the single reversing camera of the 6.1-inch model are clearly visible.
To further solidify this rumor, released 9to5Mac an exclusive Apple photo of the 5.8-inch and 6.5-inch models, allegedly the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Plus, so we know that the two OLED-equipped iPhones this fall with great certainty will arrive.
There will be two different screen types
Kuo also said in his November Report that the 5.8-inch and 6.5-inch models have the OLED multi-screen touch display, known as the Super Retina HD display, while the medium-sized 6.1-inch model is a standard LCD Multi-Too will also display with IPS technology, just like the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus Retina HD displays.
While the model below shows an almost frameless design for the LCD model, its bezels must be larger at the top and bottom than the other models to hold the LCD in place.
This year's non-OLED iPhones may differ from conventional LCD panels and lending technology of the LG G7 ThinQ. Apparently Apple speculates that Apple could use the same MLCD + display panels for LG's latest flagship for its future 6.1-inch iPhone. Business Korea seems to support this rumor:
According to the smartphone industry on May 9, Apple is expected to load its next 6.1-inch iPhone model with an MLCD + display that uses LG in its G7 ThinQ smartphone , The MLCD + display realizes a bright screen with less power consumption than the IPS LCD display.
Switching to MLCD + makes sense, as conventional LCD panels limit the ability of a manufacturer to achieve a bezel-free design with their technique. LCD displays require fragile edge connectors that run along the top or bottom of the screen, which requires thicker bezels to improve overall durability. In addition, newer MLCD + panels represent a significant improvement over their predecessor in terms of display brightness.
In summary, MLCD + adds a fourth white subpixel to the traditional red, green, and blue (RGB) subpixel mix What makes it superior brightness, clarity and efficiency over its predecessor. Of course, if you want to know more about MLCD + and the improvements that it brings to the table, please read our article on it.
An entry-level iPhone is very likely
It's starting to become more obvious that Apple will use the same strategy from its 2013 book and release a budget-friendly range of iPhones alongside the flagship models. Street Insider reports that, according to Rosenblatt analyst Jun Zhang, the 6.1-inch iPhone equipped with a LCD could be the spiritual successor to the iPhone 5C and appear in a variety of colors, including blue, yellow and pink. Zhang further substantiates this claim:
"Since Apple launched three new models each year, we believe the company needs to differentiate the designs of the LCD model from the two high-end OLEDs," so in 1945. "A sensible choice would be to add other colors."
However, this again contradicts rumors that the iPhone SE 2 could actually be the 6.1-inch model. Anyway, there is definitely some confusion about what's going on with the rumored 6.1-inch model, so it could be anything.
To add even more to this claim, a video has emerged that seems to be a dummy unit, the inexpensive 6.1-inch iPhone alongside the top-tier 6.5-inch model. Significant external differences such as the rear camera groups are clearly visible, the budget model is equipped with a single camera lens.
If a new leak turns out to be true, the budget-friendly 6.1-inch LCD iPhone will come in a variety of colors in the same direction as the classic iPhone 5C. A recent report from 9to5Mac has uncovered a report by Ming-Chi Kuo predicting that the upcoming LCD iPhone will come in a variety of colors – white, gray, red, orange and blue. The European site Consomac has recently discovered an entry by Apple in the European Economic Commission (EEC). In it, Apple lists a total of 11 iPhone models, namely A1920, A1921, A1984, A2097, A2098, A2099, A2101, A2103, A2104, A2105 and A2106.
If you notice that A19 and A20 models have three iterations, while the model A21 is available in five variants, indicating more color options on the latter , If the rumors are believed, the A21 model will be the 6.1-inch LCD iPhone.
They will have the same notch size as the iPhone X
One improvement we hoped would arrive with this year's stack of iPhones a smaller notch. For months, there was speculation in the mobile world that Apple's iPhone 2018 model would come with noticeably smaller cuts than the 2017 iPhone X. This was supported by reports quoting predictions from Barclays analysts:
Based on multiple data We continue to believe that Apple will use its TrueDepth 3D 2018 sensor across the entire iPhone range …  We expect the sensor to develop slightly and possibly reduce in size (ie smaller notch) and improve in specificity … helping very strong growth for some Apple suppliers in 2H18 as the second generation of sensor ships in the world to continue this year's new iPhones.
Unfortunately, this probability decreases as we get closer to the official release. Famed tech leaker Ben Geskin has painted a picture of glass panels for Apple's upcoming flagships, with notches roughly the same size as the iPhone X.
However, it is worth mentioning that the notch of the 6.5-inch iPhone variant is smaller in relation to the overall size due to its large screen and has a thinner aperture overall. So, if a smaller notch is one of your must-haves when considering your next iPhone purchase, then the upcoming 6.5-inch OLED iPhone is for you.
3D -Touch May Expire on Some Devices
Apple plans to use 3D Touch-at least for the 6.1-inch LCD-equipped iPhone – to minimize production costs and to create space for the implementation of new technologies. According to Cult of Mac, industry analyst Ming-Chi Kuo predicted that Apple will remove 3D Touch on at least one of the three flagship iPhones to be released later this year.
Ming-Chi Kuo added that the 6.1 The iPhone will include a new technology that makes the LCD screen lighter and more resistant. The new CGS (Cover Glass Sensor) process integrates the touch sensor into the glass itself, moving away from the traditional way of being integrated into the display.
The new CGS process will do much to make screens more resistant to impact and scratches, but also cost more to produce. That's why Apple will sacrifice 3D Touch, starting with the 6.1-inch iPhone, and will eventually leak out as it is standardized for all iPhones that move forward – when Ming-Chi Kuo's prediction occurs.
In-Display Touch ID Is One Possibility
Developing a reliable fingerprint sensor housed in the phone's touchscreen assembly has become a hard-to-reach destination for many manufacturers, with Apple Touch ID entirely in favor of Face ID for the almost all-screen iPhone X rejects. Touch ID on the screen could still be seen on Apple's upcoming flagships, if you believe a rumor.
According to SlashGear is a Korean site full of speculation that Apple is actively working on its own ultrasound fingerprint sensor for future iPhones. This type of sensor uses ultrasound to image even the smallest details of your skin, and is known to be more accurate than light-based optical scanners and capacitive sensors based on electrical patterns. It is also the most expensive.
For this reason, this new feature – if developed successfully in time – will probably only be available on the OLED-based iPhones as it will make production costs on the LCD-equipped 6.1-inch iPhone explode. These costs will be reflected in the final price of the iPhone, leaving the budget-friendly iPhone unreachable for most consumers.
Apple Pencil support in the air
If a new rumor proves to be true, Apple has given consumers more incentive to choose their flagship OLED-equipped flagship models over the entry-level model if they are on sale by the end of September. Taiwanese Page Economic Daily News reports that the higher-end iPhone models will support Apple Pencil, but not the LCD-equipped flagship. If that's true, then Apple could lure customers into buying higher-end models and push sales for even higher revenues.
However, analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has recently expressed serious doubts about this allegation, and Redmond Pie reports that Kuo has released a research note to investors who belittled the rumor and stated that he does not believe that Apple Pencil supports an iPhone "good user" would provide experience. "
The 6.5-inch iPhone has an iPad-like landscape mode
Thanks to their larger screens, iPhone Plus variants from the 6 Plus are more like a native App UI, comparable to a mini-iPad Similar to their tablet counterparts, and thanks to the iOS 12 Beta 5, this feature seems to be transferred to the upcoming 6.5-inch iPhone.
The ingenious people of iHelpBR have this feature on the iOS Simulator In the latest iOS 12 Beta discovered and Xcode 10. In it, they optimized the resolution to 2688 x 1242 – the OLED-equipped 6.5-inch iPhone's approximate screen resolution – and turned it into landscape mode, confirming it the presence of iPad-like enhancements to native application UIs, such as the multi-window view in messages and contacts.
The official names are only guesses
The official name of the next generation is currently unknown. Apple may very well decide to reinstate the interim S line of devices after the first decade of its existence is in its rearview mirror. In fact, this is almost certainly the case with the OLED variants so we might consider an iPhone XS and iPhone XS Plus, but where is the third model?
- iPhone XS (5.8-5) inches)
- iPhone XS Plus (6.5 inches)
- iPhone XC or XL or SE 2 (6.1 inches)
The oddball out, the LCD Version, could have a "C" which means "cost" or "cheap", although they could come with a different letter to designate it differently, like "L" for "LCD". It could even be called the iPhone SE 2, although it would be a giant leap in size from the 4-inch SE. It could also be the iPhone 9, but it is less likely, as it makes no sense to jump back from X.
The rear cameras may have TrueDepth systems with 6P lenses
Reports suggest that the TrueDepth feature was found on the iPhone X. The selfie camera could also find its way to the rear camera. According to GSMArena on November 14th, from 2019, iPhones will be carrying a rear-facing 3D sensor to enhance Apple's ARKit and provide infinitely more accurate range measurements than the current camera setup estimates.
The company allegedly spoke to several suppliers and evaluated its options.
That may seem like a long way off, but it's also quite possible that Apple will be able to do so in time for at least one or two of 2018 next year's models. I mean, Apple's Animojis will only keep us busy for so long.
In another statement by Kuo on Nov. 2, the 2018 iPhones will likely use the same 6P lens design that is currently on the iPhone X to use something higher. The term 6P refers to a 6-element lens – 6 lenses made of plastic.
With its rear camera specifications, the iPhone X has managed to find a phenomenal balance between image quality and form factor design – we've come today technologically. Switching from a 6P lens to a 7P lens or a 2G3P hybrid lens with a camera model that closely resembles the iPhone X would, in our opinion, only provide limited improvements in aperture performance.
The 6.5-inch iPhone "Can" Set Up a Triple-Rear Camera  The [Huawei P20 Pro] was the first large-sized smartphone with a rear-view camera with three modules, and it looks like Apple might follow and use the same technology for its highest-level model. According to Forbes, the upcoming iPhone X Plus is likely to have a three lens setup for its rear camera to further enhance photography.
While the details are currently unknown, the third camera module can be used to optimize the Low-light photography and to address a weak spot. As large as the cameras of the iPhone X are, it is still a long way when taking pictures in low light, which is even more apparent compared to the Google Pixel 2 XL.
However, a three-pronged rear camera may not show until 2019. The charts referenced by Forbes, which came from an unknown accessory manufacturer, appear to show three similarly sized circles on the rear glass camera area, with a small microphone to their right. Although it is unlikely to be true to scale, this probably only indicates the same setup that the iPhone X already has with a flash between two lenses.
What we see is unlikely to be three lenses because of these leaked schematics. The accessory needs to know at least the general position of the flash, so it's probably just two lenses and one flash that are drawn – not three lenses.
There is a redesigned metal frame with more parts
In In another research note by Kuo on November 6, he said that the iPhone 2018 will have a redesigned metal frame made up of more parts than that current iPhone X, mainly to improve reception and data transmission quality.
Apple has placed with Catcher Technology and Casetek are for two frames, one for a phone like the current iPhone X, and another for an iPhone X-like model with a larger screen.
If it turns out that this is the case Generation iPhone can be very well able to support faster downloads, comparable to the 6CA capability of the Samsung Galaxy S9 (on the Exynos version of the phone ) which downloads data at speeds of 1.2 Gbps.
Some have a faster A12 processor with 4GB of RAM  As the successor to the iPhone X, the next-generation iPhones will of course use faster, more powerful processors, though it's uncertain how much of an upgrade the A12 will have over its predecessor will be. However, if a new leak is suspected, we may have a clearer picture.
The French site iGeneration has discovered benchmark results from Geekbench 4, which identify the mysterious device as iPhone11.2 released in late June. In it, the mysterious iPhone released an average score of 4,673, 10,912 and 21,691 for single-core and multi-core performance, along with the metal-based Compute score. The processors had a fundamental frequency of 2.49 GHz.
In comparison, the iPhone X released average scores of 4,206, 10,128 and 15,234 for the same exact tests, with its A11 Bionic clocking at 2.39 GHz. And while the iPhone X has 3 GB of RAM, the iPhone in question comes to 3748 MB of memory, which is about 4 GB of RAM.
The A12 will be the first 7nm chipset
Apple's upcoming flagships will be the first smartphones with processors based on the latest 7nm architecture. After DigiTimes, Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC) is preparing to produce the 7nm process in the second half of 2018 to produce the next generation of A12 processors to host this year's high-end supplying iPhones. 19659002] Switching from the 10nm chipset to the iPhone X is another milestone in the search for smaller, more powerful processors, and the A12 will undoubtedly bring a lot of improvements in speed and power consumption. Unfortunately, we have to wait for benchmarks to pop up to see how significant these improvements will be.
You Receive Updated Intel and Qualcomm Modems
In a separate Research Note for Investors on November 17 Kuo claimed that the next-generation iPhone models will include the Intel XXM 7560 and Qualcomm Snapdragon X20 modems , While this may not sound like much, these new modems will allow faster data transfer speeds as both new chips support 4×4 MIMO technology. Earlier iPhone models only support 2×2 MIMO
could offer room for two SIM cards
In the same research note, which refers to new modems on November 17, Kuo also predicted that at least one of the new iPhone Models 2018 would feature dual-SIM dual-standby (DSDS) features that support LTE + LTE connections. Most DSDS phones currently only support LTE + 3G. Probably the 2018 iPhone would have an embedded SIM and the other removable, but it would be nice if they were both removable.
Local rapid-charging capabilities may eventually arrive with this year's harvest of iPhone accessories, though this rumor proves to be true. According to a post on Weibo, Apple's 2018 iPhones will now ship with a new generation of Lightning cables that will turn off the traditional USB-A port in favor of USB-C. This new USB C-to-Lightning cable and charger will enable fast charging of iPhones and iPads in real time.
On Amazon: USB Type-C Chargers for iPhones
The upcoming iPhones retain the Lightning Connector, first introduced on the iPhone 5, giving iPhone owners across the board access to the iPhone new USB-C Lightning Chargers and vice versa. If your wife upgrades her iPhone in the future, you can now quickly charge your device with the USB-C-based Lightning charger of your spouse, if you need a lot of juice in a hurry.
Prices are getting high (Better initial savings )
Recent reports suggest that the mid-range LCD-enabled iPhones are in the price range of the current iPhone 8 series. Apple Insider recently reported that Apple would praise the upcoming 2018 LCD models for between $ 699 and $ 799, according to Ming-Chi Kuo
Ming-Chi Kuo did not detail the cost of the OLED equipment model, however , But considering how much the current iPhone X costs, it will probably be at least $ 1,000. So if you do not want to go back to LCD screens, you should save better now.
Stay tuned for more rumors and leaks
That's all we have so far regarding the yet to be named year 2018 iPhone models. Nothing was given away at WWDC 2018 so we'll probably have to wait until 12th September to know for sure. However, be sure to check back frequently as more information arrives ahead of Apple's flagship 2018 flagship.
