Apple typically introduces new iPhones each September, and it looks as though 2019 is shaping up to be no different.
Keeping with the pattern in 2017 and 2018, Apple is widely expected to debut three new iPhones on Tuesday, September 10 — and it sounds as if one of the biggest changes could be a triple-lens camera system.
Apple's iPhone launches draw massive attention from news outlets, consumers, and Wall Street, and that's bound to be the case more than ever in 2019 as the company grapples with falling iPhone sales.
In its fiscal third quarter earnings report, Apple revealed that iPhone revenue fell yet again compared to the same quarter a year ago, dropping from $29.5 billion in the period that ended on June 30, 2018 to $26 billion in the same timeframe this year. Though other product areas are growing — such as its wearables, home, and accessories business — the iPhone is still Apple's biggest moneymaker.
The next iPhone launch will likely come just before Google is planning to release its Pixel 4 smartphone, which it typically debuts in October. It also follows the launch of Samsung's giant, stylus-wielding Galaxy Note 10. Suffice it to say Apple's new iPhone will face significant competition heading into the holiday season, as usual.
Here's a look at what we're expecting to see in this year's iPhones, based on the reports and rumors that have surfaced so far.
