The rumor mill has been churning fast as the Apple (AAPL) event is approaching in three weeks. Apple is likely to bring out three iPhones with bigger screens that don new colors. Along with this, updated iPad Pros, amended AirPods, six watch models, and a new wireless charger are also likely to gaze at the event.
According to the Bloomberg, an upgraded 5.8-inch iPhone X with OLED screen, a 6-5-inch OLED high-end iPhone, and a cheaper 6.1-inch LCD phone are likely to be showcased in the September event. Also, dual-SIM card slots in two larger devices could be launched in certain markets.
It is expected that the Apple weapon might come in various colors including red, orange, white, blue, and gray variants with colorless aluminum edges. New gesture controls similar to what is available in iPhone X and FaceID will be suited up in all the three devices. All models will have 7-nanometer A12 chipset, 2.6 or 2.8 GHz octa-core CPU processor and Apple Custom GPU.
Numerous discussions have been going on internally with regard to the name of the devices. The rumor mills have come out with names like iPhone XS, iPhone X Plus, and the cheaper version could be named iPhone 9 or iPhone XC. Also, Apple is expected to continue its older models after the launch of new devices at a price much lower than at present.
In early August, fears were surrounding among fans that the next-gen phones could be delayed as one of Apple’s major supplier were hit by a computer virus outbreak that might delay shipment. Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing (TSM) issued a warning that the outbreak could cause the delay in shipments. The supplier confirmed most of the systems had been recovered and the impact was notified to most of its customers.
Apple’s biggest event is approaching quicker than expected. As expected from the previous event dates, the keynote is touted to be conducted in the second week of September. During the event, Apple could highlight other products such as AirPods, iPads, Apple Watch and MacBook apart from the iPhones.
According to a Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC) filing, the tech giant has listed six Apple Watch models with latest WatchOS 5, bigger display, improved health functionalities, and longer battery life. A 13-inch laptop with a higher-resolution Retina display is also on cards for the event, but it could be priced cheaper than the current MacBook. Also, a high-end iMac Pro, new updated MacBook Pro, and Mac Mini launch could be making rounds at the event.
