More importantly, what do YOU want from this year's crop of Apples?
The lower end models will each have dual camera lenses, an update for the XR successor. This means the company's complete 2019 lineup would likely make use of the iPhone XR's Haptic Touch feature instead.
The high-end model will include a triple rear camera for super sharp photos whilst others will have double cameras, according to a report in the Wall Street Journal.
Finally, the name of the new iPhone is still a mystery, because after the iPhone Xs, Apple could choose to continue with the Roman numeration (iPhone XI), return to the numbers (iPhone 11) or completely change its name.
Though Apple won't debut its new 2019 iPhones for another nine months, the company is already well into the development cycle for them.
APPLE REPORTEDLY PLANS to release a new LCD iPhone in 2019, despite the lacklustre response to the current iPhone XR.
The problem is that even if Apple now wanted to pivot away from releasing an iPhone with an LCD display, it's likely too late in the planning cycle for Apple to make any significant changes.
Regardless, it's a risky move from Apple, as some of its biggest competitors are gearing up to launch 5G devices next year, including Huawei, OnePlus and Samsung, the latter of which is expected to launch a 5G version of the Galaxy S10 in February. The Cupertino-based company is said to be bringing new camera features to the upcoming iPhone models, including a possible triple camera setup in the iPhone XS Max successor. It'll reportedly sell the 64GB iPhone 8 for 3,899 yuan ($578/£450/AU$800), compared to the 5,099 yuan ($756/£590AU$1,045) Apple price.
Apple discourages retailers from discounting iPhones and such reductions are rare so soon after their release, with the lower prices coming just four months after the models were unveiled. The image above shows the iPhone 11 leak we saw a few days ago, featuring that strange-looking rear camera module.
