Everything You Need To Know About The New iPhone Rumors

Madeline Buxton

Now is not the time to buy a new iPhone. So long as your current model can survive the summer, you're better off waiting until September: That's when Apple is expected to announce its promising 2018 iPhone lineup, including some less expensive models.

Last year, Apple made its big iPhone X reveal, a phone the company said would usher in a new iPhone era. This means you can expect the new 2018 models to share many attributes with that flagship version, as well as some exciting advances.

Ahead, a look at all the rumors swirling in the notch-filled universe right now. While none of this will be confirmed until Apple's big event come September, we do know what software each will run: Last week, Apple unveiled everything packed into iOS 12 , from Group FaceTime to Memoji.

We will continue to update this piece as new rumors are announced.

The iPhones

In 2017, Apple released three new iPhones — iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, and iPhone X. In 2018, it's rumored to launch another three, all of which will look similar to the iPhone X with an edge-to-edge display (i.e. no Touch ID fingerprint sensor) and a notch at the top with Face ID.

According to analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, who is known for his reputable Apple rumors reporting, there will be a second generation, 5.8-inch iPhone X and a larger, 6.5-inch iPhone X Plus. Both of those are predicted to have OLED displays, which the iPhone X currently has. There are also rumors of a third, 6.1-inch iPhone with an LCD display, which would be a more affordable, mid-range option. MacRumors was the first outlet to report Kuo's findings, and has also shared some early renderings of the three phones.

The Prices

One of the most talked-about features of the iPhone X was the price tag. The new flagship phone set loyal Apple users back $999 — more than any iPhone before it.

Costs for the models rolling out in 2018 may be lower: According to Kuo , the iPhone X Plus will likely fall in the $900 to $1000 range, while the second-generation iPhone X will cost $800 to $900, and the LCD iPhone will be the most cost-effective of the bunch at $649 to $749.

The Cameras

Most speculations about the second generation iPhone X and new iPhone X Plus say the phones will have two rear-facing cameras (a wide-angle lens and a telephoto lens), while the LCD iPhone will come with a single rear-facing camera.

However, a report from Forbes claims the iPhone X Plus will not just be bigger in terms of physical size: There will also be a third camera, possibly there to improve low-light photography. In other words, dark restaurants and poor nighttime lighting will have nothing on the X Plus.
