With the iPhone 11 rumoured to debut in September, there is practically very little left to surprise us when Apple finally unveils its next flagship. The only aspect of the handset that was left to known was when Apple would officially launch the handset. Now, this is known too as SoftBank’s president Ken Miyauchi has accidentally revealed when Apple’s greatest will go on sale.

As per a report by Mac Otakara, SoftBank’s president Ken Miyauchi has stated that the iPhone 11 lineup will hit shelves on September 20, and this falls in line with previous guesses as to when Apple’s next flagship will be available to purchase. This also makes perfect sense.

While answering a question about how SoftBank planned to tackle the launch of the iPhone 11, Miyauchi said that its new Japanese telecom business law which is coming to effect on October 1, meant that that the company would be left waiting a full 10 days after the launch of the iPhone before it could commence its own sales, a related report by Forbes states.

This means that the iPhone 11 would launch on Friday, September 20, 2019. And this is on par with previous iPhone releases where the iPhone XS launched on Friday, September 21, 2018, and the iPhone X which launched on Friday, September 22, 2017.

Miyauchi was quick to try to cover his tracks by stating, “Excuse me, I shouldn't say that.” However, being a long-time Apple partner and also the first company to sell the iPhone in Japan, the cat is finally out of the bag regarding the launch date of the iPhone 11.

Forbes has a point of contention too and they say, “Knowing when the new iPhone launches and want to upgrade, however, are two very different things. On the plus side, Apple will equip the iPhone 11 with a new triple rear camera, while a clever logic board switch will free up space for a much larger battery. But we also already know the 2020 iPhone will feature a radical redesign, new screen sizes and display technology along with next-gen camera tech, a switch to USB-C and the adoption of 5G.“
