Apple every year needs to whip up something thrilling if it desires to get folks hyped about the next iPhone. The same holds true, particularly for this year. With iPhone sales falling 12% within the fiscal third quarter, profits anticipated to dip to $9.6 billion and more folks trading in their iPhones for Androids, the corporate wants to make sure its iPhone 11, 11R and 11 Max (or whatever they will be called) will be compelling sufficient to attract new customers or keep current customers updating.
The corporate hasn’t sent out invites to any iPhone events but, however, based on previous years, we predict Apple will unveil the next iPhones on Tuesday, Sept. 10. Keep in mind that is just an informed guess, and we have no confirmation from Apple itself if this date is correct (Apple did not immediately reply to a request to comment.), but there are few reasons why this is the likeliest date.
For the past seven years, Apple has introduced iPhones either in the same week as Labor Day, which is on the first Monday in September, or the next week. In the past, if the US holiday occurred on Sept. 3 or earlier, Apple introduced its iPhone the following week. When Labor Day landed on the Sept. 5 or later, because it did in 2015 and 2016, Apple introduced the iPhone the next Wednesday (two days after Labor Day).
This year, Labor Day is on Monday, Sept. 2. Keeping with the pattern, Apple would announce its new iPhones the next Tuesday or Wednesday: Sept. 10 or Sept. 11. Either date matches the pattern. However, because the news cycle on Sept. 11 is best avoided for apparent reasons, we might go with Sept. 10 as the safer bet. We additionally predict preorders will kick off that Friday, Sept. 13.
