This morningto the lucky few who will lead their Apple Park campus on Wednesday, September 12th. During the invitation, our original story shows how we predict the date. Be sure to check out at the event, from to a new Apple Watch model and release dates for ] and . And has anyone heard anything about ? Here we hope that we finally see it.
Another day has gone without signs of an Apple Invitation, where the company is expected to announce its next series of iPhones(including follow-up to and ), but that does not mean that the event does not happen. In view of our original guess of September 12, we still expect an invitation to appear in our inbox tomorrow. Cutting it near Labor Day is quite common for Apple; .
Although we do not have confirmation or knowledge of when the exact disclosure and release dates will take place (Apple does not respond to a request to comment) examines the dates Apple has picked in recent years, provides a fairly consistent schedule for extrapolation some strong opportunities for the 2018 dates.
In the USA, the Labor Day holiday falls on the first Monday of September. Looking over the last six years, when Labor Day landed on 3rd or earlier, Apple announced its iPhone the following week. When Labor Day occurred on 5th or later, the iPhone announced the following Wednesday (two days after Labor Day), as it did in 2015 and 2016.
In 2018, Labor Day will fall Monday, September 3th. So, if Apple follows the latest pattern, the company will announce its new iPhones following Tuesday or Wednesday: September 11 and September 12th. These dates fit well with expected iPhone release dates for iPhone, usually a week and a half after Apple has announced their messages (store special products like iPhone X and). For the last six years, you can start buying the latest iPhone on a Friday, around the third week of September. Check out the chart below:
Apple iPhone Release and Announcement Dates (2012-2017)
|iPhone Model and Year||Announcement Date||Release Date|
|iPhone 8/8 Plus (2017)||Tuesday, September 12th||Friday, September 22nd|
|iPhone 7/7 Plus (2016)||Wednesday, September 7th||Friday, September 16th|
|iPhone 6S / 6S Plus (2015)||Wednesday, September 9||Friday, September 25th|
|iPhone 6/6 Plus (2014)||Tuesday September 9th||Friday, September 19th|
|iPhone 5S (2013)||Tuesday, September 10th||Friday, September. 20|
|iPhone 5 (2012)||Wednesday, September 12th||Friday, September 21st|
If we anticipate Friday the 21st of September as the store in the shop, 11 and 12 September will continue. And if I had to choose between the two dates, I would go with September 12th. That's because it was on the precise date when Apple unveiled iPhones in 2017 and itsin 2012. And the News Cycle September 11 is best avoided for obvious reasons.
Then you go – if I had to put money on it, I would say that the new 2018 iPhones will be announced Wednesday, September 12th and released on Friday 21st. September. If I get wrong then it will be. But if I'm right, someone owes me a coke of coke.
This piece was originally released July 31. Some people owe me a coke now.
