While the device will not have a physical home button, Apple could launch a standalone watch as an accessory to the iPhone, according a person familiar with Apple’s plans.
The company has said the iPhone will be launched in late 2019, which would put it at the beginning of the first quarter of 2020.
Apple also has plans to unveil a new iPad model in the fall and launch the iPad Air later this year.
