Apple’s much-anticipated set of new iPhones will be officially introduced on September 12th. The launch will take place at the company’s new headquarters, Steve Jobs Theather in Cupertino just like last year when it introduced the tenth anniversary iPhone.
Among a few other products, the highlight of the event is, of course, expected to be the three new iPhones which will have three different sizes — 5.8-inch, 6.1-inch, and 6.5-inch. The phones will take the iPhone X design including the company’s facial recognition technology, Face ID, and the notch-equipped edge-to-edge screen mainstream. One of these will have an LCD display, while the rest will have an OLED panel.
The forthcoming iPhones have been appearing in several leaks as of late which suggest the LCD model will be priced similar to the iPhone 8 and others in the range of the iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X. In addition, the most affordable of them all will be available in a bunch of new colors including Orange, Red, Blue, similar to the iPhone 5C.
While early rumors hinted at Apple Pencil support too, a bunch of recent reports has said Apple might have dropped the feature. One of the hardware tidbits which could be significant for the success of these new phones especially the LCD one is Dual-SIM compatibility. Countries such as India where Apple is already struggling and working aggressively towards establishing a stronger foothold, it might prove crucial.
Apart from iPhones, Apple will be introducing the next-generation Apple Watch which will possibly have a larger screen, solid-state buttons, and improved heart rate detection. While not as confirmed as the smartwatch, Apple may also announce its highly awaited upgrade of the MacBook Air, Mac Mini, and others. A couple of new editions of the iPad Pro are being rumored as well with Face ID support and reduced bezels around the side.
