Everything we expect Apple to launch at the iPhone event on September 12 On Tuesday, the world will watch as Apple celebrates ten years of its iconic phone at Steve Jobs Theater in the company’s new campus, Apple Park. Everyone is expecting Apple to redefine the smartphone space once again and after various rumours and leaks, we have an overview of the things happening during the event. The reason why this is an important event is because just about ten years ago, the visionary founder of Apple introduced the world to their iPhone and set the pathway which many manufacturers followed. As Apple released iterations after iterations of the iPhone every year since, it changed how people interacted with their smartphones, enhancing it throughout the years. 1/5 iPhone X Edition If there has been a phone that’s been garnering most of the attention of the rumour mill, it has to be the special-anniversary-edition iPhone which will finally see the light of the day. All those leaks and rumours have pointed to one direction which is that Apple will announce not two but three iPhones on Tuesday. According to some leaks of the iOS 11, we can say that the company would unveil the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X/Edition/Pro.
While iPhone 8 and 8 Plus would very much be similar to the current iPhone’s 7 and 7 Plus, iPhone X, on the other hand, would be an entirely new device and would be the most expensive iPhone Apple has ever made. For starters, it will ditch the bezels and home button as the display will fit into its stainless steel body with just a small cutout for the sensors which also include a 3D face recognition sensor along with the front camera. As Apple does away with the most prominent feature of the iPhone, the home button, it will introduce a face recognition, Face ID technology that should be efficient and will do its job without any lags. There were some reports suggesting that the company couldn’t develop integrating a fingerprint sensor within the display and that is why they removed it altogether, (courage, anyone?) and created a new way to unlock the device.
Now, the iPhone X will come with a TrueTone, AMOLED display with a resolution of 2436 x 1125 pixels and will be powered by an A11 chipset with 3GB of RAM. The iPhone 8 and 8 Plus are expected to come with 2GB and 3GB of RAM respectively.
On the rear, the leaked renders and images of iPhone X point to a vertical placement of the dual cameras instead of horizontal. The iPhone X will also support both wireless and quick charging. 2/5 Apple Watch Not much is known about the probable Apple Watch Series 3 expect some leaks around iOS 11. According to some reports, the Watch is set to get some LTE powers along with minimal changes to the design like the crown getting red highlights. There are some rumblings about new type of bands which could have healthcare purposes. Apple reportedly held an event in Los Angeles to talk about this function. 3/5 Apple TV Apple is slated to announce a TV that will finally be 4K supported at 60 frames per second and will feature an A10X Fusion CPU along with 3GB of RAM. 4/5 AirPods Minimal upgrades to the AirPods are expected such as repositioning the charging indicator. Other than that, we are not expecting the company to launch the next generation of AirPods tomorrow. 5/5 iPod Touch (7th Gen)
Apple is also likely to announce the seventh generation of its iPod Touch. It's been two years since we last heard of anything related to iPod and the company might release an iPod refresh with the new iPhones. It already announced the HomePod during WWDC this year and today's event, which is known for bringing in mobile devices, might be the best best chance for the company to launch an all new iPod. We expect Apple to bring in support for the AirPods with the new W2 chipsets and iOS 11.
