Specifications of leakage from the latest iPhone line have been widely circulated. However, when exactly the release date is still confidential. Apple itself is still silent about the launch date of its flagship cellphone. However, there is a special pattern that Apple has applied for six years to set the iPhone announcement date. This pattern can be used to predict when the introduction of the iPhone 2018 will be held.
In the past six years, the iPhone has always been officially introduced to the public between Tuesday or Wednesday. Usually, the launch week is no more than the second week of September. That way, the options that can be estimated are 4, 5, September 11 and 12. From its history, the iPhone launch also follows the Labor Day national holiday in the United States. In the United States, the Labor Day holiday falls every Monday from the first month of September. If Labor Day falls on September 3 earlier, Apple usually releases an iPhone the following week. But if Labor Day falls on September 5 or after, then the introduction of the iPhone is usually done two days after Labor Day, as happened in 2015 and 2016.
In 2018, Labor Day in the US will be on Monday. So chances are, if you see the previous pattern, the iPhone 2018 will be introduced the following week. That means it can be September 11 or 12. This also happened last year when the iPhone X and iPhone duo were launched 8. Labor Day fell on the 4th, and three cellphones were introduced on September 12, 2017.
Regarding availability dates, the iPhone usually starts to spread on the market about a week and a half since it was launched. Usually, they pre-order in that period. Except for special cases like iPhone X and iPhone SE, orders and initial availability are longer. In the United States, recent iPhone sales fell on Friday or around the third week of September. That way, September 12 has a great opportunity to become the announcement date of the 2018 iPhone, as happened on the iPhone X and iPhone 8 years ago, and the iPhone 5 in 2012.
But for certainty, fanboy must wait for an official announcement from the vendor. At least, by looking at this prediction, fanboy can save to upgrade their iPhone to the latest version.
