Apple to Unveil New iPhones Next Month

Apple to Unveil New iPhones Next Month

Somehow, the folks at 9to5Mac have managed to get their hands on the official renders of the next-generation iPhone and Apple Watch. The image also reveals a new watch face that shows much more information than current faces.

Apple goes to extensive lengths to keep its products under wraps. We saw this previous year when almost every detail/feature concerning the 2017 iPhone X were spoiled by a HomePod firmware leak.

How will Apple follow up its biggest iPhone announcement since the original?

Besides the new iPhones, Apple might also use the event to announce new Series 4 Apple Watches. "One of the iPhone models Apple is introducing includes a 6.5" screen on the newly loaded iPhone X2. There's no hint of it in this leak, which suggests that Apple might give it less attention at the launch event. Now, we have also come to know that Apple will be live streaming its event as well. While the older iPhone X had a large screen than the Pluses of years past, in practice, Apple did not support those layouts om the smaller handset, likely due to its width. For us in Malaysia, we reckon that we could be getting the new iPhone models officially as early as October unless the Cupertino company bumps Malaysia into their first wave list.

Apple's September 12 event should bring new iPhones and a new Apple Watch, at the very least.

Adding to the excitement surrounding the new models, technology website 9to5Mac posted images of two gold iPhones -one larger than the other - stacked on top of each other. However, given it's the most affordable of the lot, the device is speculated to have a single-lens camera at the back.

The new iPhones will boast significantly bigger, edge-to-edge screens. That feature would let travelers easily switch between a local carrier plan and a new country or coverage area. It will be particularly interesting to see how the firm markets the rumored cheaper iPhone, given the relatively poor reception of the iPhone 5c, a budget iPhone model the company offered in 2013 in response to increased global demand for cheaper phones.
