The next iteration of the Apple iPhone is launching next month, as has been the case for years now. In fact, the American tech giant has sent out press invitations to an event on September 12 at the Steve Jobs Theater at its Cupertino campus in California.
The invite provides no details on what Apple will announce next, but it does feature a bronze circle (which might hint at future iPhone colors) and asks the media to “Gather round.” We’ve heard that Apple may introduce not one or two — but three — new iPhone models, in addition to the fourth-generation Apple Watch smartwatch and iPad Pro tablets.
It’s also been reported that two of the three new iPhones, with 5.8-inch and 6.5-inch OLED screens, will fall under the Apple iPhone XS moniker, while the third could be a cheaper version sporting a 6.1-inch LCD display. It may arrive in a variety of bright colors, too, just like the iPhone 5c from 2013. Cross those fingers.
The supposedly official render of the two iPhone XS models first seen on tech site 9to5Mac shows the smaller iPhone bearing a notch for Apple’s Face ID unlocking system. The website also posted a possible leaked image of the Apple Watch Series 4, which has a larger screen and smaller bezels. It displays a revamped watch face with plenty of on-screen information. We’ll know for sure in two weeks.
Last year’s iPhone X brought the first major redesign to Apple’s signature product in three years. Since launching in stores last November, it has become Apple’s top-selling device, despite being one of the most expensive smartphones ever sold even today. Its base version sold for $999 (around P53,419) at launch, P64,490 ($1,206) when it arrived in the Philippines after taxes.
