If you’re interested in buying the rumored iPhone XS there are some things you should do to help prepare for its arrival.
Apple is reportedly (and unsurprisingly) working on successors to the iPhone X and iPhone 8, the two flagship models Apple announced back in September, 2017.
The company isn’t talking about 2018 iPhones just yet, but leaks and rumors point to the arrival of three new flagship iPhones this fall. The company reportedly won’t debut a new iPhone SE 2 this year.
Apple is supposedly planning a 5.8-inch successor to the iPhone X, a 6.5-inch iPhone X Plus, and a 6.1-inch iPhone that’ll evidently come with an LCD display (instead of an OLED screen) and an affordable price point. The new iPhone X and iPhone X Plus will reportedly both be called iPhone XS.
These rumors come from respected sources so there’s a very good chance Apple launches at least three new iPhones during its annual fall launch window.
We’ve still got a few weeks to go before iPhone XS rumors firm up and Apple takes the stage to announce this year’s flagships. Some of you should stop waiting and snag a phone today, tomorrow, or in the near future.
That said, some of you might want to wait for the next version of the iPhone X, the 6.1-inch LCD iPhone, and the rumored iPhone X Plus. There are plenty of good reasons to hold out until Apple’s September 12th launch event.
If you fall into the latter group, you’ll want to do some prep work in the buildup to Apple’s launch date. Prepping for a rumored phone isn’t easy, but there are some steps you can take to make your life easier once the release gets close.
This guide will lead you through some of the steps we think prospective iPhone XS buyers should take right now and in the weeks ahead. Some of these steps will take you a few minutes, others will take you a lot longer.
Track iPhone XS Rumors
If you're interested in the second-generation iPhone X, a larger iPhone X, or a cheaper iPhone with a big display, make sure you keep your eyes on the iPhone XS rumor mill as we push deeper into the year.
As we push toward Apple's fall launch window, iPhone XS rumors are flying around. These rumors will help you set proper expectations about the device's hardware, the software, and the release date. Setting proper expectations will help you avoid disappointment come launch day.
When it comes to iPhone rumors and breaking news, there's always a ton of noise but only a few people you should trust.
One of those people is KGI Securities Ming-Chi Kuo. When Kuo issues a note about the iPhone XS, you should pay attention. Kuo's accurately predicted many Apple launches and products.
While they aren't as exciting as rumored features, make sure you pay attention to iPhone XS supply chain rumors because they'll help you decide on a pre-order.
If rumors point to shortages at launch, you'll want to put in a pre-order to avoid getting your new phone in late October or November.
