iPhone 11 dummy models

Are you ready for a bit of a surprise this next Friday the 13th? Luckily it’s not a crazed killer in a hockey mask, but rather the potential pre-order date for new iPhones.

We already know that Apple is likely going to announce its newest iPhone lineup on Tuesday, September 10, at its “by innovation only” event. If you are someone who is already gearing up to upgrade your smartphone to one of the newest iPhone models this year, then you might be wondering if Apple will follow suit this time around and open pre-orders at the end of the week following the announcement.

According to MacRumors, that will indeed be the case. The publication is reporting on Friday that Apple will indeed open pre-orders for the iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, and iPhone 11 Pro Max on Friday, September 13, just a few days after the event. The news is based on tips the publication was able to get from a tipster working at a “major carrier”.

In-store availability will follow the following Friday, on September 20. Just in case you don’t feel like pre-ordering or getting your new iPhone shipped to you.

Apple will be making a change this year, at least compared to the two previous years. The iPhone X, back in 2017, had a staggered launch on its own and didn’t go up for pre-order just a few days after its initial unveiling. And the same can be said for the iPhone XR that launched in October of last year.

This year it looks like Apple plans on launching all three iPhone models at the same time, which is good news for anyone who might be on the fence regarding which model they want.

So, are you planning on upgrading to the iPhone 11, 11 Pro, or 11 Pro Max this year? Going for the biggest screen possible? Or do you prefer the colorful options that Apple will probably offer with the cheapest model? Let us know in the comments.
