Apple iPhone XI preview: Everything we know so far

UPDATED: Is Apple readying big price cuts from the iPhone X?

It's only been six months since the Apple iPhone X released, but already the rumour mill is churning out theories about the next big thing.

That's par for the course with Apple, naturally, but the rumours and reports have often panned out with recent handsets. And while some of these bits might seem far-fetched, we have to give to credence to the fact that we might already be hearing actual facts about the new iPhone.

Will it be the iPhone XI? The iPhone 11? The iPhone X2, if we want to throw all reasonable naming and numerical conventions out the window? We aren't sure yet – but we have heard some other things about what might be on the horizon. Here's what we know so far.

What will the Apple iPhone XI look like?

Have you seen the iPhone X? Yeah, it'll look a lot like that.

Do you really think Apple is going to scrap that eye-catching design after one go? Hell, they've used the iPhone 6 aesthetic for four straight flagships now – this one's not going away anytime soon.

What could change, according to that KGI Securities report, are the sizes and materials based on which model you end up with. Along with an upgraded edition of the standard 5.8in edition, the report suggests a larger 6.5in version that's much the same… but bigger, of course. An iPhone XI Plus, if you will.

And there could be another size in the middle of those two: 6.1in. But it won't be quite the same: that's reported to be the new entry-level edition, using aluminium for the frame instead of stainless steel, an LCD screen instead of OLED, and a single back camera. Same punchy design, less top-end materials.
