It’s very unlikely that Apple skips a year after releasing a new phone, or more. The year 2018
is unfolding. So, what is Apple up to? Well, a lot. Not much is revealed about the new Apple
phone. However, as with every release by Apple, all the iPhone fans, analysts, and experts
are sharing their assumptions, expectations, and thoughts. Some might be right and some not.
The good news is, we don’t have to wait longer before we get all the news. In this article, we
will share with you what Apple is up to in 2018. We will mention everything we know from
designs to release dates to specs.
Expected name of the new iPhone
As you already know, Apple’s latest iPhone releases were the iPhone 8 and the iPhone x
(which had been released with their smartphones line 10th anniversary). Until this day, we
have no news about the name of the new iPhone. Some people expect it to be part of the X
family, while others say it will go by the name 8s or iPhone 9. Either way, it is going to be as
legendary as all the previous Apple phones.
Design of the new iPhone
Different analysts and experts released their own expectations when it comes to the design of
the new phone. One source said that the new phone will be a mix of iPhone 8 and iPhone X,
in terms of the features. Another source said that the phone will have a 6.1-inch screen,
aluminum frame, LCD screen, single-lens camera, 3 GB of RAM, and no 3D touch. The
same source mentioned that the phone will be available in white, grey, red, blue, and orange.
Another rumor said the new phone will have a metal back. Some reports said that the box of
the new iPhone may have a faster charger. Who would say no to that? Rumors and
assumptions are all over the internet, but it won’t be long before we hear the official words
from the company.
Price of the new iPhone
The new iPhone is said to be cheap. Of course, it is not the cheapest phone that one could get,
but one of the affordable phones in the iPhone category. Don’t worry, the new phone will be
nothing compared to the iPhone X, price-wise. It will be closer to the iPhone 8 in price than
to the iPhone X. If you’re looking for a cheaper phone, it is time to prepare your wallet and
get your hands on it as soon as it is released.
The release date of the new iPhone
For some reason, Apple is a big fan of the month of September. All its previous releases were
during this month. For this, analysts and experts assume that the 2018 release will be in
September as well. Some went further and assumed it will be released on Tuesday the 11th or
Wednesday the 12th. If that is true, you might be able to get your hands on this year’s phone
on Friday, September 21. Let’s wait and see what the company have in store for us.
More to come in 2018
iPhone 9, let’s call it that for now, is not the only phone getting released by Apple this year.
Everyone is talking about two other phones this year, iPhone X2 and iPhone X Plus. This is
not new for Apple; they released iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X last year.
Like with iPhone 9, the two other names are uncertain. Rumor has it that the iPhone X2 and
iPhone X Plus will get the Apple Pencil Support. How exciting would that be?
Another improvement that will possibly be part of the three phones will be in terms of
performance; it is said that this year’s models will have a new processor built in-house by
Apple itself. We mentioned earlier that the iPhone 9 is expected to have an LCD screen. With
the other two phones, it is said that Apple might go for OLED screens. These screens are
great because they display a wider range of colors and have improved contrast. This sure is a
more expensive option for the screen and will definitely drive the price of your phone higher.
If you’re looking to upgrade your phone, you will not have one but three options this year.
The legend that is Apple
A legend, we couldn’t think of a better word to describe this entity. Whether the company
releases one phone or three, we are pretty sure they will amaze the crowd. We couldn’t be
more excited for what this year will bring along.
