iPhone 11 and iPhone X Plus: Most-wanted features for 2018

If Apple follows its usual schedule, we’ll see new iPhones announced in early September. For last year’s 10th anniversary of Apple’s hugely influential device, we got the totally new — and totally expensive — iPhone X, with its edge-to-edge OLED display, distinctive top center notch and Face ID instead of a familiar Touch ID fingerprint home button. Apple also launched two more-traditional handset upgrades, the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus, so consumers not ready to jump to the high price and radical redesign of the X still had a more familiar option.

For 2018, though, it looks as if Apple may be going all-in on Face ID. The rumor mill — started by influential analyst Ming-Chi Kuo and corroborated by Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman — pegs two larger-screen models on deck: a 6.5-inch OLED and a 6.1-inch LCD handset. The latter might strip a few features — such as 3D Touch and the dual rear camera — to come in at a price point lower than the current iPhone X.

That model, meanwhile, may be discontinued, based on rumors that orders for its 5.8-inch OLED screens are ramping down.

Whether Apple eventually unveils two or three new iPhones come September — and no matter what they’re called — there are plenty of features we’d like to see in the new models.

Here are our top priorities — along with our guess on the likelihood of each one being implemented in the top-end model.
