Apple’s upcoming iPhone 11 is tipped to be available for pre-order on September 13 and in-store availability is set to start on September 20.

The information regarding the iPhone 11 release date was received from an inside source who works at a major carrier, MacRumors reported on Friday.

The Cupertino-based company has already sent out invitations for its annual iPhone event on September 10. The event will take place at the company’s Apple Park headquarters in Cupertino, California.

The iPhone-maker would launch three iPhone 11 models this year — The D43 (internal name) would replace the iPhone XS Max, the D42 (internal name) would replace the iPhone XS and the N104 (internal name) would replace the iPhone XR.
