  • New iPhone X 2018

Apple just sent out invites for its September event, where the company is expected to introduce three new iPhones, a new Apple Watch, new MacBook devices, new AirPods, and the AirPower wireless charger.

In June, Apple released the new Watch face to celebrate Pride. A gold version is also expected. The 5.8-inch model will be an upgrade to the present iPhone X, while the bigger 6.5-inch model will be a "Plus" version of the same.

It's worth noting that media outlets have pegged September 12 as the most likely day for Apple's annual keynote long before today's press invitation.

iPhone XS A new "accidental" leak, 9to5mac have their hands on, may have revealed the new OLED iPhone models.

John McCain’s memorial service in Washington D.C.
Friends, family and former presidents gathered Saturday at Washington National Cathedral to honor the life of the late Sen. McCain's family asked before his death that Trump, who the senator had long feuded with, not attend his funeral services.

An image that purportedly shows both of Apple's new iPhone models has leaked out. Right after Apple announced the official launch date of this year's iPhone event, we are seeing some exciting stuff.

"Moreover, Apple is catalysing the trend of "smartwatch as a standalone wearable device" with adoption of cellular connectivity, which is driving the new wave of cellular connected wearables globally, great news for mobile operators", he said.

It is also expected to be more affordable than the iPhone X replacements, using less premium components such as LCD displays instead of the more vibrant OLED, according to Bloomberg.

All this when we are hardly two weeks away from the Apple event where the company was going to unveil these new devices.

He later told reporters "you don't often get a direct descendent" to watch a show set in the 18th Century. Meghan Markle is making a return to the small screen - but this time, she won't be acting.

The "gather round" tagline most likely refers to Apple's new campus, Apple Park, which features a signature "spaceship" design that's perfectly round. The phones feature the same screen design as the iPhone X, with the image of a planet stretching from corner to corner of the display.

Apple continues to dominate the smartwatch market with a 41% share, while the majority of smartwatch makers are looking to add cellular connectivity as 90% of smartwatches shipped today are not cellular capable. This one shows off a lot more complications - bits of on-screen information - than previous Apple Watch watch faces (eight, to be exact). There is an additional mic that can be seen between the Watch crown and side button.

What's most eye-catching, however, is that there is a new watch face that packs an incredible amount of information on-screen - in fact, it seems nearly like information overload at first glance.

In terms of pricing, Apple will possibly continue its $1000 (Rs 71,000 approximately) mark for the 6.5-inch iPhone XS. So, here is what all Apple might launch on September 12.
