iPhone

The iPhone 8 has been on the market for a little more than seven monthsand that can only mean one thing: a new iPhone is right around the corner. Heres everything we know about the iPhone 9, including the latest news, rumours and leaks, plus speculative release date, specs and pricing details.

While theres little information floating around pertaining to what exactly Apple is working on for the iPhone 9, its easy enough to discern whats coming and thats because: 1) Apple is a creature of habit; 2) mobile trends tend are a doddle to spot; 3) we know what tech will be available at the time of release, thanks to patents.

iPhone 9 Name: What will the next iPhone be called?

Theres no guarantee the next iPhone will be called the iPhone 9. In fact, theres a good chance it wont be. Why, you ask? Because, with the iPhone XiPhone 10on the market, the iPhone 9 could be seen by consumers as a step backwards, which is something Apple may (understandably) be keen to avoid.

iPhone 8 Plus

Some tipsters claim the next iPhone will be called the iPhone 8s. Its a prediction that makes a lot of senseApple has previously used thessuffix to denote incremental updates to existing iPhone models (think: iPhone 6 and iPhone 6s), and thats something 2018 could certainly offer.

Its more likely, however, that Apple will simply ditch the numbers altogetherlike we saw with the iPad 3, which was dubbedthe new iPadwhen it hit the shelves back in 2012. The same naming scheme was adopted for the 9.7-inch iPad 2018 that was released in April.

Heres a recap of all the possible names for the next-gen iPhone:

iPhone 9 Design and Specs: What does it look like, and is it powerful?

Theres no clear-cut answer to those questions. Much of what weve heard to date came in the form of dubious rumours, with little, if any, evidence to back them up. With that in mind, wed recommend taking all the following information with a considerable pinch of your preferred seasoning.

Super Retina Display

When Apple announced the iPhone X, it said that the near-edge-to-edge OLED screen that debuted on the handset will set the standard for future iPhones, so it should come as no surprise to hear that theres chatter claiming that the next iPhone will feature a near-edge-to-edge OLED.

However, a Wall Street Journal report from September 2017 threw lukewarm water on the rumour, claiming that Apple had expressed a keen interest in purchasing a large number of LCDs from Japan Displayexpected to make up 70 percent of the firms total screen orders for the next wave of iPhones.

Theres no word on whether the deal went through, but based on the lack of gossip, were going to go out on a limb and say it didnt. And thats good because it means theres a chance the iPhone 9 will come with an OLED screen after allthough we dont quite know how large to will be.

iPhone X

Apple supposedly had plans to release three different iPhones in 2018: one with a 5.28-inch, one with a 5.85-inch and one with a 6.46-inch screen. Although word on the street is that the Cupertino company culled the former from its roadmap, instead opting to stick to what it knows works.

Koreas ET News professes that Apple is working around the clock to bake the 3D-sensing hardware required for Face ID (more on that later) into the front-facing camera on the next-gen iPhone, in a bid to eliminate the dreaded cut-out at the top of the screen, which debuted on the iPhone X.

Face ID

If Apple decides to switch to an all-front, near-edge-to-edge OLED on the iPhone 9, its more than likely it will also do away with the Touch ID fingerprint sensor, replacing it with its Face ID face-recognition feature that made its first, and only to date, appearance on the top-of-the-line iPhone X.

Apple A12

Its looking ever more likely that Apple will bundle a brand new, custom-built chip on the iPhone 9. Based on the firms current naming convention, it will be called the Apple A12 (the last one was the Apple A11 Bionic), and will likely off a number of battery and performance improvements.

For reference, the current A11 Bionic has two high-performance cores that are 25 percent faster than those of the two-year-old A10 Fusion and four high-efficiency cores, which are around 70 percent snappier than those found on the A10 Fusion, according to Geekbench benchmark results.

The easiest way for Apple to improve its chipset is to migrate to a more efficient manufacturing process. The A11 Bionic is built on a standard 10nm process; thats the distance between transistorsthe smaller the distance, the more transistors you can cram in to boost computing power.

A number of companies, including Samsung and TSMCboth of which have supplied Apple with components in the pastare working on a 7nm process that cuts the distance between transistors, so theres a chance we could see the tech make an appearance on the much-anticipated iPhone 9.

USB-C

Apple will bundle an 18-watt USB-C fast charger in the box of the iPhone 9, according to a new reportin a move that could save iPhone owners as much as $70. Thats because up to now the firm has commanded $49 for its aftermarket 29-watt fast charger, then a further $19 for the necessary USB-C to Lightning cable.

The iPhone 9 will come with all the required cables.

iPhone 9 Release Date and Price: When does it come out, and how much will it cost?

Apple has a long and consistent history of iPhone releases, which makes predicting the launch date for a new iPhone a straightforward task. With that in mind, we expect Apple to announce the iPhone 9 on September 11 or September 12, with it hitting the shelves worldwide on September 21.

Heres how we worked that out:

  • iPhone 5 Announced: Wednesday, September 12 | Released: Friday, September 21
  • iPhone 5sAnnounced: Tuesday, September 10 | Released: Friday, September 20
  • iPhone 6Announced: Tuesday, September 9 | Released: Friday, September 19
  • iPhone 6sAnnounced: Wednesday, September 9 | Released: Friday, September 25
  • iPhone 7Announced: Wednesday, September 7 | Released: Friday, September 16
  • iPhone 8Announced: Tuesday, September 12 | Released: Friday, September 22

So what does that tell us? Firstly, Apple tends to make its annual iPhone announcement in early-September, and always on a Tuesday or Wednesday. And secondly, Apple usually launches a device for retail on a Friday in mid-September, leaving a narrow window for the unveiling.

Thats why we estimate the following dates:

  • Reveal: Tuesday, September 11 or Wednesday, September 12
  • Release: Friday, September 21

There is, of course, the underlying chance that Apple could throw us a curveball and completely switch up its usual schedule. Although, as I said earlier, the firm is a creature of habitso if that happened we, together with hundreds of expert analysts and reviewers, would be very surprised.

We dont know the exact price of the iPhone 9, but you can bet your bottom dollar it will set you back a pretty penny. After all, the iPhone 8 saw the base cost of an iPhone rise to an eye-watering £699, which is loftier than the £599 Huawei P20and far beyond the now-discontinued £449 OnePlus 5T.

Given the temperamental state of the Great British Pound (GBP), its highly likely that the iPhone 9 will be at least as expensive as the iPhone 8in the United Kingdom, at least. If we were to place a bet, wed say £699 is still the likeliest price tag, but expect something between £679 and £749.

Alternatively, if the iPhone 9 does turn out to be an iPhone X sequel, as some far-fetched rumours would have you believe, we could be looking at something far closer to a price tag of between £899 and £1099. Some have even predicted that it could rise as high as £1150 for the base model.
