Everything You Want to Know about Apple iPhone XS

Everything You Want to Know about Apple iPhone XS

As for other details concerning specifications, prices and features, Apple could be introducing three display sizes in the upcoming smartphones. But now, since Apple has sent out media invites for the event to be held on September 12 at the Steve Jobs theatre, we'll finally get to know how much of these rumors actually appear on the phones. The company unveils the latest version to its iPhone every fall ahead of the holiday shopping season. As far as product names are concerned, a massive leak recently revealed that Apple plans to slightly shake up the naming scheme it uses for new iPhone models.

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.

"This major tranche of reboots will undoubtedly please Apple fans and win some new devotees, but it's hard not to see this multi-device launch making up for increasingly modest fanfare that has greeted new iterations of the iPhone in recent years". The device could look the same as its predecessor, but include internal improvements such as a faster processor and updated camera, as is standard with off-year "S" updates.

Following last year's major update to the design of the iPhone in the shape of the iPhone X, as many as three new devices with the same bezel-less front that was introduced last year could be unveiled. The lower-cost iPhone could ship in limited quantities initially to gauge demand of the more expensive largest new iPhone. The most likely price points are the ones we've been hearing for months: The iPhone Xs is likely to start at $899 while the new Xs Max occupies the current-generation iPhone X's price points at $999 and $1,149.

China Mobile, one of the country's top carriers, published a poster on its Hong Kong Facebook page that says, "The new fruit supports two SIM cards?" - suggesting the iPhone X successors will feature dual-SIM.

Apple is expected to launch three new iPhones along with the rumoured Apple Watch 4 series, iPads and Homepods on September 12.

Now, here's where we'll get to answer our question above: if the 256GB iPhone X is at Dh4,965.50, then - yes - the 512GB is a sure-fire above-Dh5,000 device.

The Apple Watch is 3 years old and ready for a light refresh. We'll likely see a new hardware design, but it won't be too different, according to photos obtained by 9to5Mac. But it's unclear on which model will the feature be available and whether it be available only for the China market, These queries will hopefully be answered on Wednesday 10 am PDT (10 pm IST).

Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo predicts the watch faces will have larger screens. In fact, we have already seen a gold iPhone in 2018 - the iPhone X that was believed to be canceled prior to the launch of iPhone previous year. As evidenced by last year's iPhone X, Apple has no qualms about extravagant pricing. But the device still hasn't shipped.

Apple may also show off new AirPods, the wireless headphones stored in essentially a self-charging dental floss box.
