ast fall, Apple rolled out the iPhone 8, iPhone 8
Plus, and the iPhone X; and rumor has it that this
September, Apple will once again reveal three new
iPhones. Since Apple broke with its naming con-
vention last year in order to release a showstop-
ping ten-year anniversary device with the iPhone
X, it’s unclear what Apple will dub its new offerings. Possible
names include an iPhone 9, iPhone X Plus, or even an iPhone
XI, but we won’t know for certain until the moment they’re
unveiled. In the meantime, we have several bits of information
about their capabilities and features ahead of their release.
Here’s our 2018 iPhone rumor roundup, complete with information on features and design.
When Are the 2018 iPhones
Apple will likely reveal its new lineup during the usual September announcement. Last year, Apple’s announcement took
place September 12, with pre-orders beginning September
15, and in-store availability beginning September 22. If Apple
follows a similar timeline in 2018, a September 11 event is a
strong possibility for this year’s iPhone announcement.
Face ID for All
All three of the rumored new iPhones are expected to include the TrueDepth front-facing camera and sensor system
that supports facial recognition. It looks like Apple may finally
be phasing out Touch ID and moving to Face ID as its biometric security feature of choice.
Edge-to-Edge Displays to
Become the Norm
The iPhone X was the first of Apple’s smartphones to incorporate an edge-to-edge display (with the exception of its
notorious notch, of course). This display style meant the elimination of the long familiar Home button and the addition of a
new system of gestures and swipes. It looks as though all of
the new iPhones this year will incorporate the edge-to-edge
display and eliminate the Home button, signaling the end of
the Home button on all future iPhones.
