Apple's iPhone event: What to expect

Apple's iPhone event: What to expect

Nobody knows for sure.

"This all-in approach will likely see the launch of an affordable specimen - touted as the iPhone XC - as well as a reboot to the iPhone X and a larger X model".

The company may also a larger option: a 6.8-inch device that 9to5Mac predicts will be called the iPhone XS Max, killing the previously used "Plus" labeling.

Every new Apple Watch is usually accompanied by a range of new digital watch faces and straps, and the same is expected to be true this time around.

The company is forecast to sell 220 million iPhones in 2018, which is flat compared to past year, but Apple has successfully raised unit prices without consumer backlash. If history is any indication, iPhone Xs pre-orders will open up on Friday, September 14 ahead of a release on September 21. An iPhone XS Plus will likely cost even more. Add the expected price difference here in the UAE and, yes, it would indeed be at the same level of the iPhone 8's starting price here. Here we are talking about the red, orange, blue, grey, white and rose gold. But, that gave us a fair idea of what an iPhone in gold color would look like.

Hurricane Florence likely to track over South Carolina, Cause Rain in Triad
Nathan Deal says the state "is mobilizing all available resources to ensure public safety ahead of Hurricane Florence". Florence is slow moving in its approach but carries maximum sustained winds of up to 130 miles per hour .

The new iPhones will also be available to the users with some new exciting colors.

Like the current iPhone X, the iPhone XS is also expected to have a stainless steel frame.

The height and width of the iPhone XS will probably be same as that of iPhone X, while iPhone XS Max will be a little bigger as it may sport a 6.5-inch screen. It will be a little bigger or smaller than the iPhone 8 Plus. If reports saying that the 512GB 6.5-inch iPhone will be priced at $1,299, then that means you have to be prepared to shell out at least Dh5,580.

The low-priced iPhone will be coming to the market with the 6.1-inch screen.

Interestingly, the photo below - which claims to show off the glass panels from Apple's 2018 iPhone lineup - illustrates how the bezels on the 6.1-inch model may be slightly thicker than on the more premium models. Another rumor puts its size at 157.2 x 77.1 mm.

Nintendo Switch Online launches September 18 with one-week free trial
The Switch is also receiving remasters and ports for Final Fantasy VII, IX, and X, as well as Katamari Damacy. For example, we now know that Nintendo Switch Online is coming September 18.

There's also a possibility that this year's iPhone models could feature Gorilla Glass 6, a new formulation that was reportedly created to focus more on reducing the incidence of shattered displays than on scratch resistance.

Before Apple introduces the new iPhone generation on Wednesday, there are still many uncertainties about the name of the iPhone X successors despite numerous leaks. The photos from the dual-lens camera are likely to be 12 MP. But, you won't be able to buy the charger separately.

As per the report, people familiar with the matter have said, "Apple has considered calling the phone the "iPhone XR". Some models, however, may come with 3GB of RAM, especially the budget model. Among "suggested" names have been "iPhone X Plus", "iPhone XI" and "iPhone X2", but it's clear that the names are still a mystery. The other storage sizes we can expect are 64GB and 256GB.

Another image reveals that the device will have a dual-SIM card slot. Apple may finally announce when the gadget will hit stores.

So, this is all about the new Apple iPhone XS. To know further details, we have to wait till September 12. As of now, all we can say is that the new iPhone will definitely have a stunning look, but at the same time, it may be really expensive.
