Pre-orders for Apple's 2018 iPhone lineup will start on Friday, September 14, according to information news website Macerkopf sourced from German cellular carriers. The date certainly makes sense given that Apple traditionally announces new iPhones during the first or second week of September, with pre-orders opening up on that Friday. As a point of reference, Apple last year introduced last year’s iPhone 8 and iPhone X on September 12, followed by a pre-order date of September 15.

With that in mind, and a leaked preorder date of Friday, Sept. 14, then the announcement could be Tuesday, September. 11. Given that day’s history, though, Apple could wait until September 12. A week after preorders are expected to start is Friday, September 21, making that the most likely 2018 iPhone release date.

Apple is expected to launch three variants of the iPhone this year. The three iPhones include a successor of the iPhone X that will be a 5.8-inch device with an OLED display, a larger 6.5-inch iPhone X successor with a “Plus” moniker that will also have an OLED display, and a third affordable 6.1-inch iPhone that will sport an LCD display. Adding to these, new reports claim that Apple might make a permanent move to FaceID for biometric security on all the three iPhones anticipated to launch. Apple enthusiasts could get an all-screen iPhone for a fraction of the cost, with a new notch-equipped 2018 iPhone starting as low as $600, according to a famous analyst associated with Taiwanese business group KGI Securities, Ming-Chi Kuo, in a recent research note that pricing for Apple's upcoming iPhones could start at $600.

Research firm Trendforce's suggested that Apple will be bringing the Pencil support to the new OLED iPhones as well, will make them true productivity devices. While the report is extremely light on specifics, iPhone support would presumably arrive as a feature of an Apple Pencil 2, an upgrade that has been speculated for many months. What's more, several reports hint at one of the variants offering a dual-SIM connectivity.
