When Apple holds an event, the entire world keeps a close tab on what’s about to be announced. And every year, the second week of September is eagerly awaited by fans and the trade alike. It’s happening this year on September 12 and from whatever is being gathered, the expectation is that there would be a flagship phone which may be called the iPhone XS.
Besides sporting a large display, there may not be too many modifications to the iPhone X. The other to would be the regular upgrades to the iPhone series. Apple uses these events every year to make announcements about some of the other devices like Apple Watches as well.
One speculation doing the rounds this year is about the colour of the iPhone XS. This is being surmised on two counts; one is the invite for the Sep 12 event has too much gold in it for one to presume the phone to be launched could be golden in colour. The two colours in which the Phone X was released last year were Silver and Grey. The other relates to an application Apple had made to the Federal Communications Commission in the US for a permission to launch a phone in the colour of gold.
Apple’s 6.1-inch LCD iPhone will be an affordable model. It is said to come with a design similar to iPhone X, though it will sport aluminum edges instead of the iPhone X’s stainless steel casing. As per Bloomberg, the 6.1-inch LCD iPhone will perhaps be the “most significant phone”. Kuo claims that the 6.1-inch iPhone will ship “slightly later” than the two OLED models, as per its production schedule.
Apple’s September 12 event will be held at the Steve Jobs theatre adjoining the new Apple Campus. To recall, Apple Park campus was opened last year, which is when iPhone X was launched as part of the tenth-anniversary celebration. This year, the Cupertino technology giant is also expected to unveil the Watch Series 4, an entry-level MacBook Air, MacBook, Mac Mini, iPads with FaceID, and AirPods 2 in addition to the new iPhone variants.
