Apple confirms September 12 iPhone launch event
Apple has confirmed it will be holding a launch event on September 12 to announce the latest range of iPhones and possibly a new version of Apple Watch.
Invitations were sent to the media with the event to be held at the Steve Jobs Theatre at Apple Park in Cupertino.
On the invitation there was a circular image which represents the Apple Park main building and the words “Gather round”.
The event will kick off at 10am on September 12 (3am Sept 13 Sydney time) and will be live streamed.
There has been strong speculation that Apple will introduce three new iPhones this year.
The first will be a 5.8-inch iPhone X with an upgraded processor and OLED display which is likely to be called the iPhone XS.
Apple is also likely to introduce its largest iPhone ever – a 6.5-inch iPhone X, also with an OLED display, that will actually make the device bigger than Samsung’s recently released Galaxy Note 9.
Also expected is a new 6.1-inch iPhone with an LCD display that will be the cheaper device of all the new products.
This iPhone, which will possibly be called the iPhone 8S or the iPhone 9, will have a similar notch in the screen and no home bottom.
Apple will probably still offer the iPhone 7 and iPhone 8 as the cheaper and entry-level iPhones for customers.
These will also be the only iPhones that still have a home button. The newer devices will be unlocked using Apple’s Face ID.
Some leaked images have been published on the 9to5Mac site which appeared to show the 5.8-inch and 6.5-inch iPhone X in the rumoured gold colour.
Another reportedly leaked image showed a gold Apple Watch sporting a brand-new watch face with even more complications.
The rumoured Apple Watch Series 4 will have thinner bezels so it will appear to have a larger screen while maintaining the same size and design.
