iPhone 11 release date, specs and price: Apple to ditch 3D Touch for all 2019 iPhones

APPLE'S NEXT-GENERATION iPhones are still some way off, but that hasn't stopped the online rumour mill from serving up some details about the iPhone 11, or so-called iPhone XI lineup. 
iPhone 11 release date, specs and price: Apple to ditch 3D Touch for all 2019 iPhones

Three iPhones are expected to debut in September, including successors to the iPhone XS and XS Max, and a sequel to the iPhone XR. While few are likely too excited about another LCD-equipped iPhone, Apple's flagship duo is shaping up nicely; they're expected to be the first iPhones to boast triple camera systems, the first to offer USB-C and the first to ship with iOS 13, which will bring a system-wide dark mode, privacy enhancements and a performance boost. 
We've rounded up everything we know about Apple's 2019 iPhones so far below.
Release date
According to a leaked marketing calendar from US carrier Verizon, the iPhone 11 could launch later than usual this year, with a release seemingly scheduled for the third or fourth week in September.  
We know that Apple's next iPhones will be expensive, but we don't yet know quite how much they will fetch. If anything like 2018's iPhone lineup, pricing will likely start around £999 and £1,099 for the XS and XS Max successors, and from £799 for the lesser-specced LCD model. 
Latest news
Yet more rumours are suggesting that Apple will remove 3D Touch, its pressure-sensitive screen technology, from all 2019 iPhone models. 
The latest comes courtesy of Digitimes, which cites industry sources for touch module manufacturers TPK and GIS, key Apple suppliers. The report claims that while "Apple may remove 3D touch sensors from all 2019 iPhone devices", these suppliers remain optimistic as "orders for touch modules for legacy iPhone models as well as for new iPad and MacBook models will keep [them] busy in the second half of 2019."
The death of 3D Touch, which debuted on the iPhone 6s, has been a long time coming. Though it still features on the iPhone XS and XS Max, it was excluded on the iPhone XR, likely in a bid to cut costs.
8/7/19: The iPhone 11's A13 SoC will maintain Apple's one-year lead over the competition, according to Ice Universe. The leaker tweeted that Apple's next-generation A13 processor will greatly enhance the CPU multi-core performance," while the new GPU is "still far beyond the Android camp's SoC."
