Everything to expect from Apple's iPhone event

The jump up from the 5.5-inch display on the iPhone 8 Plus to a 6.5-inch display is more than enough to justify a new name. According to some analysts, the new iPhone might be more expensive than the iPhone X which was launched at $1000.

AirPower, the wireless charging pad capable of charging an iPhone, Apple Watch and AirPod earphones all at once, was first unveiled past year and promised for 2018.

As per the information we have gathered so far, Apple is expected to unveil three new mobiles- the iPhone Xs Max, the iPhone Xs and the iPhone Xc (LCD).

Later this week, the technology giant will hold an event at its California headquarters where as many as three new versions of the iPhone are expected to be introduced. "While the three iPhones will have nearly non-existent bezels like the iPhone X, the 6.1-inch iPhone's bezels may be slightly thicker due to the LCD display instead of the OLED display". For instance, Apple will use a stainless steel frame instead of an aluminium one. "Apple has considered calling the phone the "iPhone Xr", one of the people said", wrote Mark Gurman, for Bloomberg on Monday.

We'll know for certain when Apple release the full line-up for our online inspection and judgement this Wednesday. These not just show the 6.1-inch LCD iPhone a.k.a iPhone 9 a.k.a "cheapest" 2018 iPhone design but also new colours it may come in.

Apple is expected to release the Apple Watch Series 4 at its hardware event. All that means that we are still unsure on how the Apple's new naming scheme will unfold in 2018. Apple analysts had earlier predicted that this relatively affordable iPhone would have a price between $600 and $700 while the other two iPhones will have a price close to $1000. It has also led to purchases of other Apple devices and accessories.

Apple recently expressed concern that some of its products, including the Apple Watch and AirPods could wind up costing consumers significantly more if the Trump administration were to go through with its latest rounds of tariffs on Chinese imports.

With all these evidence, it is clear that Apple will have a dual SIM phone this year. Apple might arguable have the best and most secure implementation of face unlock in the smartphone industry, but with the iPhone XS, we hope Apple makes it faster.

None of it is of course confirmed but thanks to a number of leaks we now have a pretty solid idea of what to expect when Apple pulls back the curtains on the evening of Wednesday 12th September. An upgraded Air with a new display, power, and Touch ID would be the flawless release this holiday season and replace the 12-inch MacBook lineup. Additionally, Kuo believes that Apple will bundle an 18W USB-C charger with its 2018 iPad Pros, up from the 5W adapter it now bundles with them.

"Because all tariffs ultimately show up as a tax on USA consumers, they will increase the cost of Apple products that our customers have come to rely on in their daily lives", said the company.
