It seems like just yesterday we were gearing up to trade in our perfectly functional iPhone 7 for the new iPhone X. But for those of you who haven’t yet made the switch, you might miss the boat entirely. According to AppleInsider, Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo of KGI Securities predicts the iPhone XI will replace the iPhone X once shipping begins during the fall. That could mean and end of the iPhone X production as of the summer. Why the end of an ~era~? Apple failed to hit its sales targets, meaning an intervention is in order ASAP. God forbid certain people here and there stick to their Androids.

As if the iPhone X couldn’t get any more high tech in all its facial recognition glory, iDrop News created a mockup of what we might expect in the iPhone XI: Dual-SIM trays for increased overseas functionality; the same glass body with edge-to-edge display, but featuring thinner surrounding bezels; updated metal frames for faster data transmission. There might also be “360-degree TrueDepth sensing” and a dual camera flush with the back of the phone, which both sound like an aspiring photographer’s dream. Suffice to say, it’s pretty baller. But as the iPhone X’s predecessor, it’s not expected to necessarily change the game. Lucky you: There might be two more iPhone releases on top of that this year, including something along the lines of an iPhone X Plus. Start practicing those hand yoga poses to accommodate a projected 6.1-inch screen.

Like all things iPhone-related, Apple is the gatekeeper of everything from the design to the actual name of the device mere weeks until the release. Keeping us guessing has certainly been a profitable marketing tactic in the past, but if they’re looking to match iPhone 6 sales of 71.5 million units (the highest grossing of the iPhone models yet), they might have to throw us device dogs a bone.
