Any predictions regarding naming scheme and features of the next phones? Release date is not that far away.

What makes you think there will be new iPhones announced in the spring? That happened once with the iPhone SE in March, 2016 but every other iPhone has been announced in September since 2012. I haven't heard any rumors that suggests there will be a new special edition iPhone released in Spring 2019.

I thought they did a March/April refresh/update? Twice a year, right?
They may release or update certain products but, considering they just released 3 new phones you won’t see any new iPhones until next September. Possibly updated Airpods, iMacs, Mac Pro?

Apples becoming less predictable with how they have these ‘Mid spring product’ launches. In spring 2018, everyone thought they would have some major Keynote for a refreshed SE/iPads, which actually did not happen, even though they did release the entry-level iPad and it was more educational-based. And then others were thinking WWDC 2018 and A new SE would launch, which also did not happen. Yeah, they refreshed their Mac lineup in July 2018 when no one expected it. I think Apple wants to be unpredictable, Other then the annual September iPhone Keynote.

No, once a year. I think that was couple years back for the SE.
Sometimes they’ll release a very minor update mid-cycle, make a massive ****ing fuss about it and make people believe it’s a great/new thing.

Like the Verizon iPhone 4, the white iPhone 4 (I think those were released the same day?), Product Red iPhones 7 & 8, and so on.

I think there is an outside chance they will release a Product Red iPhone Xs and a Product Red iPhone Xs Max at some point before the next major refresh but that’s about it.

I’m not keen for red on iPhones, but if they made a ‘Product red’ iPhone for the Max with the glass back, _that_ would be enticing for that color alone.

Just got my wife a Product red 8+, she saw it in store and wanted it more than the Xs/Max. What really makes it a nice is that the front is black for the 8 series. I'm not a fan of the 7 series with the white front at all, but there's something about her phone, it's really nice.
