Iphone 2018 : Iphone XI / Iphone 9 : Release Date, Specs, Price and Feature. Once will Apple release it is follow-up to the iPhone 8 and X? All of us round up all the rumours about the release date, news, UK price and tech specs of the 2018 iPhone - which may be called iPhone 11, XI or X Plus.
What will the next iPhone be called?

Up until this year, Apple's naming pattern had been consistent: iPhone [Number] followed by iPhone [Number + s].
    iPhone: 2007
    iPhone 3G: 2008
    iPhone 3GS: 2009
    iPhone 4: 2010
    iPhone 4s: 2011

    iPhone 5s: 2013
    iPhone 6: 2014
    iPhone 6s: 2015
    iPhone 7: 2016

But 2017 changed everything. Instead of iPhone 7s, we got:
    iPhone 8
    iPhone X (iPhone "Ten")

Things being what they are, what takes after iPhone 8 and iPhone X? Will it be iPhone 9 and iPhone X2? Just iPhone 9 or iPhone X2? Something different completely?
Apple can name the following iPhone anything it needs. iPhone 9 or iPhone XI. iPhone X2. iPhone Edition. iPhone Pro. iPhone Mother of Dragons. It's simply a promoting choice.
For straightforwardness, iPhone 9 will be utilized as a part of our talk roundup until the point when we hear something else.

iPhone 2018 release date

We expect the successor to the iPhones 8 and X to be launched in Sept 2018. This might be exactly annually following the iPhone 8 launched, and it is consistent with Apple's usual behavior of launching a fresh flagship iPhone in Sept.

However, in 2017 the business didn't launch most of its new iPhones at exactly the same time. The kick off of the iPhone X arrived one month following the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus. Whether this is anticipated to delays or intentional isn't completely clear. Apple may have benefitted from stored demand for the iPhone X, and it could have sold more iPhone 8 handsets than it could have if the iPhone X have been available sooner. Much more likely Apple battled with component supply and production issues.
We don't expect that you will see a staggered unveiling for the new iPhone in 2018 though. (Apart from a fresh iPhone SE 2 (more info about this iPhone here), which we be prepared to see in the Springtime of 2018).
KGI Securities' analyst Ming-Chi Kuo doesn't think Apple will skip the September launch particular date in 2018. Kuo is convinced Apple's concentrate in 2018 is to ensure that the new models will be ready to meet up with the same shipping time frame. "Achieving secure shipments and on-time transport," he said in a study be aware to clients.

KGI Securities' analyst Ming-Chi Kuo doesn't think Apple will miss the September launch date in 2018. Kuo believes Apple's focus in 2018 will be to ensure that all the new models are ready to meet the same shipping date. "Achieving stable shipments and on-time shipping," he said in a research note to clients.

Price Iphone XI / Iphone 9

The iPhone X was positioned by Apple as a premium iPhone with a premium price - starting at £999/$999, while the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus were priced at £699/$699 and £799/$799 accordingly.
Obviously in 2018 you'll be able to get an iPhone X-style handset for less - if Chinese-language Economic Daily article from Oct 2017 is usually to be believed.

According compared to that site, several successor to the iPhone X is in the works - combined with the top-tier iPhone X successor, you will see more affordable model to get new customers.

This 'budget' iPhone X-style iPhone is codenamed Hangzhou, as the more costly version is codenamed Lisboa, corresponding to Economic Daily.

The boasts of Economic Daily seem to be to be supported by KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo who also boasts that Apple will bring in a cheaper iPhone that will feature lots of the same features as the iPhone X including a bezel-less screen. To keep costs down this device will include a LCD-TFT display and fewer pixels. (More upon this handset below).

This cheaper handset will definitely cost between $649 and $749, relating to Kuo. (We'd expect that to convert to ?649-?749, that could be considered a discount of ?50 on the price tag on the iPhone 8 presently).


Here's everything we've heard about the 2018 iPhone's design so far: 

Metal or a glass back?
Matching to Nikkei, Apple will continue hedging its wagers as it pertains to materials. You will see two OLED mobile phones in fall months 2018, the website boasts, but there may also be single LCD mobile - which will most likely have a metallic back. It practices that device won't be able to offer cellular charging.

What they can offer is a splash of color. Nikkei adds that this "will be accessible in several colors".

Screen sizes
Sources claim that Apple's 2018 iPhone revisions will include as much as three new display screen sizes - like the biggest screen by using an iPhone yet.

The Bell (via The Trader), quoting private industry sources, said in-may 2017 that Apple and Samsung possessed signed a package for the way to obtain 5.28in and 6.46in size OLED sections for the 2018 iPhones. The 6.46in screen would be a rise on the 5.5in display screen on the 8 Plus and the 5.8in display screen on the iPhone X, resulting in speculation that would be destined for an iPhone X Plus.

For the 5.28in display, a written report in August 2017 said the 5.28in model have been canned towards a 5.85in display - which noises nearly the same as the existing iPhone X, albeit just a bit larger.

iPhone 2018/ iPhone XI features

Face ID Identification on all models... but in-screen Touch Identification still possible

KGI analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has released a report where he predicts that Apple will extend its new Face Identification facial recognition technology to all or any new iPhones released in fall 2018 because in-screen Touch Identification fingerprint scanning remains a scientific problem - but gives that the second option continues to be a possibility.

Kuo warns that Apple's programs will probably rely upon how favourably Face Identification is received. If users find it too difficult, irritating or unreliable used, the business will plough more resources into resolving the under-screen fingerprint scanning device problem.

Apple may have resolved on Face Identification with the iPhone X, however the company has explored the likelihood of integrating the Touch Identification fingerprint scanner in to the display of any smartphone or tablet. Actually, Apple submitted a patent explaining a Touch Identification display back January 2013.

Gigabit LTE/LTE Advanced
It might feel like its no time at all since 4G was introduced but the next big thing is Gigabit LTE, which is in itself a stopgap on the way to 5G. It seems likely that the 2018 flagship iPhone will feature this technology.

Long-range wireless charging
The wireless charging you get with the iPhones 8 and X is the kind, commonplace with today's technology's standards, where you still have to physically place the device on a charging mat. It's convenient, but not exactly a gamechanger, since the two elements have to be in contact.

2018 iPhone design changes

In this section we look at some of the new design changes we expect to come to the iPhone.

Ahead of an iPhone launch designers and illustrators around the world put their brains to the task of imagining radical new designs. (Of course, it's one thing to decide how a device should look and quite another to actually execute that as a practical object; so don't assume these are likely to bear any great resemblance to the real thing. These are for interest more than for predictive value.)

In this section we'll post the best artists' renders as they appear. When we get closer to the launch we should start seeing product leaks, and those really will give us a sense of Apple's plans, but it's too early for that just yet.
