As anticipated, Apple just sent out invitations to a press event to be held on Sept. 10. This is widely expected to be launch of three new iOS handsets, among them the first “iPhone Pro” models.
The design of the invite has touched off speculation about whether it indicates casing colors for the iPhone XR replacement.
Some many iPhone 11 colors
As shown above, the invite has an Apple logo divided up into green, blue, yellow, red and purple sections. While clearly an homage to the multi-colored logo the company used for many years, there are differences. And these have people talking.
Interesting that the striped color Apple logo in today’s iPhone Event invitation doesn’t have the same order of colors (or even the same number) as their historical logo. My guess is phones in each of these colors. Maybe even the pro models. pic.twitter.com/CIYEddWDeb

The iPhone XR is available in black, blue, coral, black, white and (product)red. It’s possible the replacement will come in green, blue, yellow, red and purple, just like the logo in the invitation.
The XR is Apple’s best-selling model, and the company could have equally high hopes for its successor, which wil reportedly be called the iPhone 11.
Waiting for the first iPhone Pro
The iPhone 11 is expected to be joined by the iPhone 11 Pro and the iPhone 11 Pro Max, the replacements for last year’s XS Series.
With Sept. 10 several weeks away, any information on Apple’s next iOS models is rumor and speculation. Still, these have painted a fairly complete picture.
One of the most significant changes in both Pro models is expected to be a trio of camera lenses, up from two in their predecessors. The new lens will supposedly very wide-angle. And they might be first phones to use a new Apple Pencil.
In addition, they might sport reverse inductive wireless charging, allowing them to send power to another device, like the AirPods wireless charging case.
iPhone 11 release date in under three weeks
For years now, Apple has introduced new iPhones during the second week of September and they reached customer hands a week or so later. For example, the company’s press event last year was Wednesday, Sept. 12, and the new handsets debuted Friday, Sept. 21.
It’s nearly certain this year’s unveiling will be Sept. 10. This year, the president of a Japanese telecommunications company may have accidentally revealed the date next generation of iOS handsets will launch: Friday, Sept. 20.
We’ll know for sure on Tuesday, September 10 at 10 am Pacific time, when the event kicks off at the Steve Jobs Theater at Apple’s headquarters.
