APPLE is expected to release three new iPhones in early September – squashing rumours of a delay for the “cheaper” model.
It’s great news for Brits on a budget who want to make sure they’re getting the best possible value.
In 2017, Apple launched the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus in September, but didn’t release the iPhone X until November.
Then in 2018, Apple’s iPhone XS and XS Max went on sale in September, but the cheaper iPhone XR wasn’t available until October.
Now experts are claiming that Apple’s 2019 trio of iPhones will arrive in September.
“All indications we are seeing from the field and across the supply chain indicate these trifecta of smartphones will officially be released in the second week of September,” said Dan Ives, of Wedbush Securities, in an investor note seen by The Sun.
Dan added that pricing will be “very similar to last year’s models”.
So when can you get the new phone?
Apple is a creature of habit, sticking to an obvious pattern for iPhone releases each year.
The big launch event always takes place in September, and generally falls early on in the month – on a Tuesday or Wednesday, typically.
This year, the likeliest dates for an Apple event are Tuesday, September 10 or Wednesday, September 11.
Of course, Apple is very unlikely to host an event on September 11, given that the day is a memorial for the 9/11 terrorist attacks on New York City in 2001.
So our money is on the former, so mark it in your calendars.
But the iPhone won’t actually arrive in stores on launch day. You’ll have to wait about a week and a half to actually buy one.
Pre-orders will likely become available on Friday, September 13.
And our best guess is that the phone will turn up in your local Apple Store on Friday, September 25.
