Report: 2018 Apple iPhone pre-orders to start September 14th with a launch on the 21st
According to a report out of Germany that is based on the word of two unnamed German carriers, pre-orders for the 2018 Apple iPhone models will start on Friday, September 14th. This will be two days after the unveiling of the new units, which we expect to take place on Wednesday, September 12th. And the expected launch date for the three new iPhones will be Friday, September 21st.

In addition, the word out of Germany is that iOS 12 will be released on September 18th. Earlier today, as we have already told you, Apple pushed out iOS 12 developer beta 9. The public version of the beta should be available within days.

At this point, it would be a surprise if Apple didn't introduce a 5.8-inch Apple iPhone Xs, a 6.5-inch Apple iPhone Xs Plus, and the Apple iPhone 9 with an LCD display. While the latter is expected to be the lowest priced option of the three (the first two models will sport OLED panels), all three phones will be powered by the 7nm A12 chipset built by TSMC and sport the TrueDepth Camera. That means all three models will feature Face ID.

So circle the four dates on your calendar, or use the calendar on your phone to keep track of them:

  • September 12th (Wednesday)-possible unveiling of the 2018 Apple iPhone models.
  • September 14th (Friday)-pre-orders tipped to begin.
  • September 18th (Tuesday)-iOS 12 rumored release date.
  • September 21st (Friday)-rumored launch date for the 2018 iPhone models.
These dates are not official; if they are off, they are probably not off by much. Plan your phone buying schedule accordingly.

Unfortunately the price points for the XS plus will be 64gb $1099, 256gb $1249, 512gb $1399 This is due to Apple Pencil capability....

iPhone X pluss because I update for size. As far as the watch I still have my 2 and so see a reason to update because they don’t do enough to justify getting the latest model. Mine will work fine. As far as the apple pro I just will still use my hp spectre 13 inch 2in1 because it’s a full computer why downgrade. Blows my mind unless you were in the market for all three aepeeerly then yeah why not they go together, but why would you have to get all 3. Seems ridiculous. I got the money to do it it’s just well I am eagerly waiting the announcement but I would be a darn fool to blow that much money for miner upgrades over last year. Except the pluss.

What are you like 8 years old. Mark my words. Crap I don’t care who you are. Or what you are talking about. Is it note 9. There is an edit button. How about saying in my opinion instead of mark my words.

The iPhone will sell more, but won’t be the better device. I just hope the 6.4 packs the features it should. It’s the Notes versatility that makes me such a fan of it.

What? 6.1 with 320-330 pixels per inch! Not good for pixel peepers out there. The pixels on iPhone 5s with only 320 ppi are very visible to the naked eye, much more on this 6 incher phone. Good for oldies but not for youngters.
