Apple has just released iOS 13 Beta 7 for developers, and people are already browsing the software to find clues to the rumored iPhone 11. iHelp BR has determined that the latest beta version of iOS 13 includes an asset that indicates an iPhone 11 event date of September 10th. An image with the simple name "HoldForRelease" contains the date of September 10 in the iOS 13 home screen calendar. Apple will be using this special OOBE Out-of-Box experience when you first set up a new iPhone.
iOS 12 includes a similar image that displays a date of September 12th. This is the date Apple announced the iPhone XS. The presence of this image suggests that Apple could prepare its iPhone 11 event for September 10, and it's a date that matches previous years. 9to5Mac notes that Apple usually hosts its iPhone event on the second Tuesday or Wednesday in September. Apple has already conducted iPhone events on the following dates:
- Wednesday, September 12, 2018
- Tuesday, September 12, 2017
- Wednesday, September 7, 2016
- Wednesday, September 9, 2015
Apple is expected to launch three new iPhones during its 2019 event, with at least one featuring a triple camera system. Rumors from previous years indicate that Apple will release successors to the iPhone XR, the iPhone XS and the iPhone XS Max. Some reports claim that the successor of the iPhone XS will even have a slightly larger 6.1-inch display and three cameras on the back. Earlier reports indicated that the new camera array is reserved exclusively for the iPhone XS Max successor.
Twitter users CoinX has also hinted recently that Apple can opt for the iPhone 11 Pro this year. CoinX has correctly unveiled the iPhone XS a week before its debut last year. If the reports are correct, Apple could plan an iPhone 11, an iPhone 11 Pro and an iPhone 11 Pro Max. Apple already had a dead end for iPhone names last year, and the name iPhone 11 Pro Max would certainly extend the naming conventions far beyond the norm.
