Two of the three new iPhones rumored to debut at Apple's September 12 event are just refreshes of the iPhone X: One that's the same size as the current iPhone X (5.8-inches), and a larger iPhone X that'll boast a 6.5-inch display.
Beyond the iPhones, Apple has been working on updated AirPods, an AirPower wireless charger, a new Apple Watch, and revamped iPad Pro tablets for this year. Some rumours say this could be the iPhone SE 2, while some say it will be the successor to the iPhone 8 and hence will be called the iPhone 9. Only, in 9to5Mac's images, we can finally see what appears to be Apple's flagship phone in gold.
Media invites went out this morning for the event taking place at the Steve Jobs Theater in Cupertino, CA, with the tagline "Gather round" and a date and time of September 12, 2018 at 10 am PT/1 pm ET. In addition, Apple will replace the MacBook Air with a new low-priced notebook.
Apart from fresh iPhones, Apple may also introduce the Apple Watch Series 4.
Fortunately, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X models have been found free of the defect. The iPhone XS will also come with a new gold color option.
Now we've been hearing about three models in total, but these two will probably the main attraction featuring 5.8-inch and a 6.5-inch OLED displays.
It is expected that Apple will use the event to show off new iOS hardware.
That's overall good news, and not all that surprising, since the closer we get to a new Apple Watch launch, the more customers are likely to hang on for the new model, rather than buying a watch that's set to become outdated. There is an additional mic that can be seen between the Watch crown and side button. Its main watch face is also able to share a lot more information than before, with up to eight complications around its analog-style clock.
At first glance, and even second, it looks very much like existing Apple Watches. The iPhone X, priced from $999, has helped Apple beat Wall Street sales expectations. September 12th can't get here soon enough, and it's because of the Apple Watch Series 4, not the iPhone XS.
