As every year, this year’s iPhone models will be among the best smartphones that consumers will be able to buy during the Christmas quarter and some of the most sought-after devices. Everyone agrees that Apple will launch three new devices next month, just like last year, because several reports from strong independent sources all said the same thing.

Storage options should start at 64 GB for all models and go up to 512 GB for OLED phones, as shown above.

The report does not mention the details of the camera, but previous reports indicated that the LCD iPhone would have a single-lens main camera, while OLED versions would have a dual lens camera like the original iPhone X. finally supports the Apple Pencil with the iPhone, although it is difficult to know if it will work with all models or only OLED versions.
