Apple has confirmed that the iPhone X will ship with the first preview of the new status bar style on July 24, 2018.
As reported in our previous article, Apple’s iPhone X and X+ will ship as a single unit and with the status bar on a circular background with the Apple logo.
The new style is similar to the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus, which are now available in white and black.
However, it is still possible to toggle between the standard iPhone 8 or 8 Plus status bar styles.
Apple is planning to ship the iPhone 9 in the second quarter of 2019, so this preview of new status bars could be the first of many.
