Apple expected to unveil bigger, pricier iPhone on Wednesday

It is expected to be a grander form of the iPhone X with a 6.5-inch screen, around an inch bigger than the screen of the iPhone 8 Plus. The new iPhones will still use Lightning, and what's odd about that is that Apple will continue to ship them with a 5W charger.

At the time, many suspected (including ourselves) Rambo had somehow snapped the pictures of these unreleased products from Apple's live event test stream, which was taking place that day.

Additionally, the underside of the new watches will be made of a ceramic material, according to the report. The new chipset is reportedly built on the 7nm process making it faster and more power-efficient. However, with rumours pointing towards a attractive bezel-less design, Face ID and USB Type-C, Apple might finally get the market share they have been looking for.

A new feature highly expected to come on the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max is dual-SIM functionality.

The iPhone X will be unveiled a month before Google's Pixel 3 phones in NY on October 9 and Huawei's Mate 20 series in London on October 16. The pricing suggests that iPhone Xs will be much cheaper than iPhone X past year. The new iPhones are also expected to come with longer battery life and upgraded cameras.

Spigen has also listed the cases for the iPhone Xs and iPhone Xs Max ahead of the launch.

As per the image, Apple will pack AirPods with Lightening connector, Lightening to USB Cable, USB Power Adapter with the iPhone XS. While markets like India might expect Apple to launch a new phone to rake in numbers, it is becoming increasingly clear that such a strategy does not fit into Apple's scheme of things anymore. If Apple is indeed going to launch iPhone Xs, iPhone Xs Max and the iPhone Xc as predicted, it is going to be the first year Apple will not have a phone with a screen size under 5 inches.

Some other basic features may include improved camera specs, Apple A12 Bionic processor, larger battery and same storage variants as the last time. The base model of iPhone XC will come with 64GB of in-built storage with another variant having 256GB storage. Apple Watch 4 is rumoured to have an edge-to-edge display, higher resolution and will be thinner.

All the three iPhones are said to have a lot in common.

Apple sold 41.3 million iPhones in the third quarter of 2018, up slightly on the 41m sold in the same period a year ago, according to the data compiled by Bloomberg.

Apple introduced the Touch Bar in 2016, debuting it on its high-end MacBook Pro laptops.

Renowned Apple insider Ming-Chi Kuo has revealed nearly everything his information indicates Apple is about to announce at its new iPhone September 12 event.
