Everything to expect from Apple’s iPhone event

Apple introduced new iPhones and other products Wednesday. Three iPhones and a new edition of the Apple Watch

Apple's Gather Round event is just a few days from now and we're still seeing leaks regarding different aspects of the devices to be unveiled.

The height and width of the iPhone XS will probably be same as that of iPhone X, while iPhone XS Max will be a little bigger as it may sport a 6.5-inch screen.

Industry experts are also predicting a fourth-generation Apple Watch will be introduced during the event, which is taking place at the firm's Apple Park campus in California on Wednesday. All these specs for the 6.1-incher make sense because Apple is planning to position this as a more "entry-level" device, the price of which would be at par with the iPhone X's lesser co-star a year ago, the iPhone 8, which is now priced starting at Dh2,991.50, which is about $815.

Apple's flagship iPhone X may get a minor upgrade this year, but the company could expand its core design elements into a line of phones -- with names that sound like confusing clothing sizes.

"While the reboot and the supersize X are likely to be the showier additions to the line-up, the development of what is essentially a successor to the super-popular budget SE is a real crowd-pleasing move".

"Depending on the price point, the launch of the XC could also see Apple making serious moves in the mobile mid-tier as it hopes to regain ground from more competitively priced rivals".

Apple says 1.3 billion people have purchased the iPhone since 2007, but Google's Android system has a larger market share, 85 percent worldwide, according to researcher IDC, due to many lower-priced models being available.

Apple is expected to launch three new iPhones along with the rumoured Apple Watch 4 series, iPads and Homepods on September 12.

Lloris still Spurs captain despite drink drive conviction - Pochettino
When asked in his news conference for Saturday's clash with Liverpool if Lloris will still be captain, Pochettino said: "Of course".

The device hasn't been seen since it was announced at last year's iPhone event - so an update on a price and release date would be welcome.

As per the Bloomberg report, it said that the Apple will be now focusing on internal improvements.

Apple is expected to unveil new iPhones on Wednesday - and leaks from China are already giving us hints of what's to come.

The all new Apple iPhone Models will be coming to the market with a Dual SIM Support features.

The company is forecast to sell 220 million iPhones in 2018, which is flat compared to previous year, but Apple has successfully raised unit prices without consumer backlash.

The biggest changes to Apple's premium iPhone models could very well focus on camera technology.

As far as hardware is concerned, the 6.1-inch iPhone will include Apple's next-gen A12 processor, 3GB of RAM, and with respect to storage, will likely be available in 64GB and 256GB configurations. But, you won't be able to buy the charger separately. The pre-order will probably begin in the USA on September 14 at midnight. Meanwhile, there's a good chance that both the Xs and Xs Max models will boast more powerful batteries than their predecessors along with dual SIM card slots.
