The product launches will begin on Wednesday in the Steve Jobs Theater at the company's Apple Park headquarters in Cupertino, California. The XS Plus was rumoured to have been called the iPhone XS Max and is expected to have a 6.5 inch OLED screen. It brings some weight to the fact that Apple is committing to the iPhone X moniker for a significant time in the future. The company unveils the latest version to its iPhone every fall ahead of the holiday shopping season.
Last time we saw a pair of iPad Pros be released, they came in two form factors - one had a manageable 10.5-inch display, while the other sported a gargantuan 12.9-inch screen.
In its usual secretive style, Apple has remained mum about revelations planned for Wednesday's event at its spaceship campus in Silicon Valley, but the timing fits its pattern of annually introducing new iPhone models. This is due to some production issues. We don't know what exactly the company has planned - but according to leaks- three new iPhones (iPhone Xs, iPhone Xs Plus, and iPhone Xc) are expected to be announced alongside two new iPad Pro models.
If the $699 expected starting price of the 6.1-inch phone holds up, then that translates to roughly Dh2,600.
No, we're not going to get a round design - something that many think Apple has needed for years, despite a square / rectangle showing more info - but the screen will stretch further to the sides of the device, meaning more screen in the same footprint. Apple has always waited until there's a compelling reason to introduce a new technology, and that philosophy applies doubly when introducing that new technology would compromise the existing product. Of course, there's always the possibly of a shocking "One more thing", but true shocks are no longer easy for Apple to pull off. Meaning, we can expect the new iPhones to be available in India on the same date.
The red, white, and dark grey models shown are said to be from the iPhone XC line-up.
One of the new 2018 iPhone models could have a rear-facing camera with a triple-lens array.
