Apple’s big 2018 iPhone unveiling is allegedly set for September 12, according to a new report out of France that claims to have insider information on Apple’s plans.

Citing two sources at Apple, French radio station Europe 1 says Apple’s big event will be held at the Steve Jobs Theatre at Apple Park on September 12 at 10 AM. That date has already been predicted by a number of sites just by analyzing Apple’s previous iPhone keynote dates.

Apple usually holds its iPhone event during the first two weeks of September. Usually, the event falls between the 7th and 12th of the month. All previous September iPhone keynotes were held on a Tuesday or Wednesday, so the rumor lines up with historical data.

If the September 12 date is true, press invites will probably be sent out later this week before everyone takes off for the Labor Day weekend holiday.

Apple is expected to unveil three new iPhones this year. Two will pack OLED displays as true successors to the iPhone X. A third cheaper option will have a 6.1-inch LCD display. Other features will likely include improved cameras, Face ID, an A12 processor, new colors and possibly more RAM to make the iPhones faster.
