Pre-orders for the 2017 iPhone models to begin on September 15th?
A new report out of Germany says that three-days after the 2017 iPhone models are unveiled in Cupertino, the Apple iPhone X, Apple iPhone 8 and Apple iPhone 8 Plus will be available for pre-orders. A previous rumor had all three new iOS flavored handsets launching on September 22nd. So, the rumored timeline goes like this. On September 12th, Apple unveils the 2017 iPhone models, all from the brand new Steve Jobs Theater. Pre-orders will begin on September 15th with all three handsets getting launched on September 22nd.

The Apple iPhone X will have a very limited supply following its launch. Fabled Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo says to expect only two to four million units of the iPhone X to be available on the date of the launch. The iPhone X will feature an OLED panel with an edge-to-edge display. A face recognition system will unlock the phone while verifying identification for Apple Pay. Wireless charging will be an optional accessory, and the dual-cameras on back will be mounted vertically.

Besides the iPhone X, iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus, Apple will also introduce the Apple Watch Series 3 on September 12th. The latter will come with its own LTE radio and embedded eSIM, so that it can connect to the internet without having to be paired to an iPhone.

The Apple iPhone X is rumored to be priced at $999, $1,099 and $1,199 for the 64GB, 256GB and 512GB models respectively.
