Apple's new line of iPhones are set to be unveiled in less than a month from now.

We’re counting down the days to Apple’s annual September event, which has always been a highly anticipated season for Apple fans, developers, rivals, and just about every smartphone user.

The September event is even more celebrated than Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC). This year at the WWDC, Apple has surprised everyone with the upcoming features of the iOS 13, the new iPadOS, and even more changes to the iPhone’s security.

As Apple prepares for the September launch of its new flagship phone (or phones), there is a growing number of reports that suggest the new line to be called iPhone 11, skipping the iPhone 9 as Apple already launched its 10th line with the iPhone X.

We have rounded up some of the rumored changes from reliable sources and news outlets.

SEPTEMBER 10 REVEAL

Media sources like CNET have pointed to a possible September 10 reveal as Apple always holds a mid-September event. However, Forbes is suggesting September 20, after Softbank president Ken Miayauchi hinted that the launch date will be on that date.

THREE NEW IPHONES ARE COMING OUT

Apple has always been launching more than just one iPhone every year. People familiar with the matter told The Wall Street Journal as early as January that Apple is planning to roll out three new iPhones this fall, including a successor to the struggling XR. Media reports, including one from 9to5mac, have been speculating about the potential launch of an iPhone 11, an iPhone 11 Pro, and an iPhone 11 Max, following the release of the iPhone Xs Max last year.

THREE MAIN CAMERAS

What many news sites and leakers have strongly pointed at is a tri-camera setup for the new iPhones as Apple is in the middle of a contentious battle with Huawei, Samsung and Google, which have all released a three-camera setup for their lines of phones. Bloomberg News in January said Apple is testing a triple camera system with a more powerful 3D camera as the company strongly pushes for AR (augmented reality) integration.

Meanwhile, Apple products leakers EverythingApplePro, OnLeaks and Ice Universe on Twitter posted renders and a prototype of the potential new phones sporting a three camera setup.

THE END OF 3D TOUCH

Apple will no longer integrate the 3D Touch to its new iPhone range as many deem it useless. KGI Securities analyst and reliable Apple analyst and commentator Ming-Chi Kuo told MacRumors that Apple is getting rid of the 3D touch.

PRICE

Kuo also suggested that the new mid-range iPhone could be priced between $700 and $800. In a separate research note obtained by MacRumors, Kuo predicts that Apple will likely hike iPhone prices as a result of the growing trade war between the United States and China, where the company has factories producing iPhones and iPhone parts.

SAME SCREEN SIZES AS THE IPHONE XS AND XR

In a separate report by 9to5Mac, Kuo revealed that the new iPhone 11 line will have the same screen sizes as the iPhone XS and iPhone XR, meaning Apple fans could expect 6.5-inch, 5.8-inch, and 6.1-inch iPhones.

BILATERAL CHARGING

Kuo also wrote in the investor note that the new iPhones will feature bilateral wireless charging, allowing users to charge other devices wirelessly through their iPhones. This means AirPods 2 users can soon charge their earbuds through their iPhones — a technology that Samsung already employs for its Samsung Galaxy Buds.

5G CONNECTIVITY

In July, Apple has acquired majority of Intel’s smartphone modem unit for $1 billion, paving the way for Apple to potentially launch 5G-ready iPhones. The deal means Apple will take over Intel’s technology and equipment for making chips that link devices to cell net­works and Wi-Fi, instead of hiring third-party contractors.

Expect to see more rumors as the countdown for the September reveal kicks off.

I4U News will provide more details in the days to come, including how to watch Apple's announcement and where you can pre-order the new devices as soon as Apple opens pre-orders.
