As the ninth month of the year draws near, all eyes turn to Apple CEO Tim Cook, and all ears are waiting to hear about the iPhone 2019, or should we say iPhone XI. When is Apple special event? When does the pre-order start? And most importantly, when does the new iPhone release?
As usual, Apple has had a tough lip about the event, and without invitations sent as of yet, there is no way to saturate the above questions. However, Apple has followed a pattern over the past nine years with respect to iPhone releases.
We have used this pattern to highlight a probable date for this year's Apple special event along with pre-order and release date on three new iPhone models, allegedly named as iPhone XI, iPhone XI Max and iPhone XIR.
9 iPhone Might Get Revilled September 20, 2019
The Labor Day Connection with Apple Special Events
Not only with the products, Apple has been compliant with their releases as well. Every year since 2012, Apple hosts a special event in September, where the tech giant proudly introduces its latest iPhone models, elaborating on many innovative and unique features to carry and announcing the release date for the aforementioned phone.
Apple's special event is scheduled either in the same week as the workday or the very next week. Scheduled first Monday in September, if the Labor Day falls before or September 3, the announcement is scheduled for next week, and if it falls later, it is in the same week. See the table below for more clarity:
See what we mean by consistency. Depending on the date of the business day, Apple plans the event either Wednesday or Tuesday. Furthermore, the release date is organized on a Friday in the third week of September, usually a week and a half after the announcement.
Release date for iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Max and iPhone 11R
Using the math mentioned above, Labor Day falls on September 2, which pulls out two dates September 10, Tuesday and September 11 , Wednesday.
The US company probably would not have chosen the unfortunate date of the Twin Tower Attack anniversary, leaving September 10, 2019, as the safest bet. According to which the pre-order will fall the following Friday, ie September 13, 2019, and the release date of the iPhone XI will be September 20, 2019.
A slip from Apple Partners
One of Apple's partners, SoftBank may have inadvertently suggested the actual release date of the iPhone XI. According to Macotakara, this happened during the company's latest earnings presentation.
The president of the Japanese mobile network revealed that the release date for the latest version of the iPhone is ten days before the country's new phone / service distribution legislation goes into effect. Since it expires October 1, the release date is September 20, 2019.
Before we continue to apologize for a moment, while patting ourselves on the back for an almost successful move.
What to expect from iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Max, and iPhone 11R
Now that we have limited the release date, it's time to raise our expectations for the new iPhone, as Apple has a reputation for retaining them, or should we say they stand out.  How many devices and what are they called: According to rumor mills like the 2018 series, Apple plans to launch three iPhones in 2019. The proposed names are iPhone XI, iPhone XI Max and iPhone XIR.
There are some more exciting features that make the rounds, such as 5G-enabled handsets, Lightning connectors and even foldable iPhones, though they will reportedly take a little more time and may appear on iPhone 2020 or later.
When sales of the Apple iPhone fell by 17% during the first quarter of the year, much is expected from the upcoming iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Max and iPhone 11R. And it looks like Apple is planning to meet those expectations, especially if the triple rear camera and new color reports have any benefits.
However, the price points for the 2019 iPhone models are expected to rise further due to the ongoing US-China trade war and the recent implementation of additional tariffs.
While I am undoubtedly excited about the new features that Apple will introduce in the latest models, the underlying concern for price points is ubiquitous. What are your thoughts on that? How excited are you about the iPhone XI, XI Max and iPhone XIR?
