- Apple is expected to announce a new line of smartphones in September.
- Thanks to months of reports, leaks, renderings, and machine-milled dummy models, we have a pretty good idea of what to expect from Apple’s new iPhone lineup, which may be called “iPhone 11,” “iPhone 11 Pro,” and “iPhone 11 Pro Max.”
- Based on what we’ve shared, we asked Business Insider readers to tell us what they think, and if they plan on upgrading to the latest phone. Their responses are highlighted below.

We’re coming up on the end of August, which can only mean one thing: New iPhones are almost here.
Apple typically holds in an event in early to mid-September to announce its new iPhones. This year, we’re expecting an “iPhone 11,” “iPhone 11 Pro,” and “iPhone 11 Pro Max.”
The iPhone 11 is said to be the follow-up to the iPhone XR, which started at $750. The two “Pro” models would be the successors to last year’s iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max, which started at $1,000 and $1,100, respectively.
We’ve had a pretty good idea of what the 2019 iPhones would look like since January, when prolific gadgets leaker Steve Hemmerstoffer shared the first renderings of the iPhone 11 based on rumors and leaked schematics on Twitter. In July, machine-milled dummy models of what the iPhones will likely look and feel like made the rounds with a handful of prominent tech YouTubers, including Dave Lee, Lewis Hilsenteger from Unbox Therapy, and Marques “MKBHD” Brownlee.
Since then, we’ve asked Business Insider readers to email us telling us what they thought of the new iPhones, and if they planned on buying any of the iPhone 11 models expected to be announced this year. Here’s what they said.
Ali says he has “no intention” of upgrading to the iPhone 11 from his iPhone 6S Plus.
He said his older iPhone is still functioning well, and speed is not yet an issue. He also said he prefers Touch ID to Face ID. He did say, though, that he wishes his phone had an upgraded camera and the ability to have more than one SIM card like the newer iPhone models.
Derrick also owns an iPhone 6S Plus, and says he has “no reason to pay any amount for the 11.”
“Other than replacing the battery about six months ago, the 6S Plus does everything I could need to do and it supports iOS 13,” he said.
Grace says she would “love to buy iPhone 11.”
She said she loves to take pictures and videos, and “the design is actually pretty cool.”
