Apple To Launch The iPhone 11 On September 10
American technology giant Apple is expected to launch three new iPhones later this year. These smartphones will be the successor to the iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max and the iPhone XR from last year. While the design and key specifications of the handsets have already been leaked multiple times in the past, no information on when the devices will see the light of the day was known. Until now, as a new report reveals that the alleged iPhone 11 series will be launched on the 10th of September.
The aforementioned report arrives via leaked screenshots found in the latest developer betas of iOS 13 and iPadOS. The images showcase the home screen of an iPhone and an iPad respectively with the Calender application showing the date as Tuesday, the 10th of September. While the image doesn’t confirm anything, what’s interesting is that the name of the file is “HoldForRelease”, which indicates that it is indeed the launch date of the upcoming iPhone 11 series.
The date is further backed by the fact that in a similar leak last year, an image was found in iOS 12 Beta hinting at a launch date of 12th of September for the 2018 iPhones. That is indeed the date when the smartphones were unveiled, so the latest leak makes some sense. The image also has a screenshot showcasing another date, September 23. This is believed to be the date when Apple releases the iOS 13 stable builds for all the supported devices.
Apple historically has stuck to launching the latest version of the iPhone on the second Tuesday or Wednesday for the past few years. So, the launch date of 10th September, which is the second Tuesday of the month makes the leak credible. The upcoming iPhone 11 series, which may consist of three devices is speculated to be a minor update over their predecessors.
Alongside a new triple camera array for the two premium handsets and a dual-camera setup for the iPhone XR successor, they are expected to run on a new SoC, purportedly called the A13 Bionic. The forthcoming smartphones have also been leaked to be powered by a larger battery and better speakers. Since the launch date seems to be drawing close, we may not have to wait long to confirm our suspicions.
