Apple is set to unleash its newest iPhones on the world in just a couple weeks and based on the rumors, these will be the most lust-worthy phones to ever come out of Cupertino.

Not only will the 2018 iPhone lineup include the biggest iPhone display Apple’s ever made, it will also be more colorful and more expensive than ever. We’ve been keeping our pulse on all the rumors leading up to Apple’s big September 12 unveiling and have a pretty solid idea on what’s coming through the pipeline.

This is what the 2018 iPhone lineup will look like:

Apple will offer the 2018 iPhone lineup in a range of stunning new color options, according to one reliable analyst.

Grey, blue, red, and orange will be some of the shades available when the new devices go on sale this fall. The largest of the three, dubbed iPhone XI Plus in some reports, will be offered in gold.

Android owners are still ditching their handsets for an iPhone at an impressive rate.

New research reveals that up to 20 percent of iPhone buyers each quarter are switching from Google devices. The iPhone SE is one of the most popular models among former Android fans, but there’s a lot of love for larger Apple devices, too.

Apple will introduce three new iPhones this fall, according to recent reports. Its most popular is expected to be a brand new model with a 6.1-inch LCD screen, which will be more affordable than the rumored iPhone XI and iPhone XI Plus.

We’ve all been wondering what that handset will look like. The render below offers an early sneak peek — and makes us incredibly excited for this September’s big iPhone refresh.

Apple is expecting its 6.5-inch iPhone XI Plus to be its most popular new handset of 2018, a new report claims.

The Korean language article claims that Apple is forecasting 45 million iPhone XI Plus shipments for later this year, around 25 million for the 5.8-inch iPhone XI, and 30 million for the 6.1-inch LCD iPhone 9. The iPhone XI Plus is set to be easily Apple’s largest iPhone of all time — and close to twice the size of the original first-gen iPhone.

One retailer has already started taking preorders for new accessories made for this year’s “iPhone XI” and “iPhone XI Plus.”

Those are the names that will be given to Apple’s new flagships, according to one accessory maker. A more affordable device with a 6.1-inch LCD screen, believed to be called the “iPhone XS,” is also on the way.

We hope for Apple’s sake that these names are inaccurate.
