Apple has just released the iPhone 8, 8 Plus, and the iPhone X in September-November 2017. However, people are already looking ahead to the next iPhone to be released in 2018.
Well, the new iPhones may be launched in the fall of 2018. That said, you may have plans to purchase a new unit, now that you are curious about rumors and expected date of release.
In that case, the expected date will be in September 2018, which is exactly 1 year from the release of the iPhone 8. This is also a custom of Apple to launch a new flagship phone within that month of every year.
The release of the new iPhones, however, came 1 month apart, when the iPhone X was released after the launch of iPhone 8 and 8 Plus. The real reason behind the slight delay wasn’t completely clear but it has benefited in the rise in demand for the iPhone X. That said, it was partially due to the difficulty that Apple encountered in terms of component availability as well as manufacturing issues. This time, the launch of the new iPhone next year shouldn’t be staggered.
A huge possibility though is that there will be a successor to the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus, and the iPhone X. There will also be a possibility that 2 new phone designs will be rolled into one. It could be an iPhone 11 or an iPhone X Plus.
There is an expected release of a new iPhone SE 2 in the spring of 2018 though. So, a total of 3 new iPhones could be launched in the fall of 2018 for that matter. The prices of such iPhone models should start at US$999, in comparison to the most recent iPhone at US$699 and US$799.
