Three new iPhones could be on the cards this week

Three new iPhones could be on the cards this week

Apple's flagship iPhone X may get a minor upgrade this year, but the company could expand its core design elements into a line of phones -- with names that sound like confusing clothing sizes. This goes against previous rumors that the largest iPhone would carry the "Max" moniker instead of plus, so take that as you will. The first is the nomenclature.

According to a new report from Bloomberg, Apple's next batch of iPhones will be announced at a launch event on September 12 at the Steve Jobs Theater at Apple Park in Cupertino, California.

For the first time full Dolby Atmos support is coming to the Apple TV 4K. Now, we are hearing that Apple will likely announce two iPad Pro models on Wednesday, including an all-new 11-inch tablet and a refreshed version of existing 12.9-inch variant. Last year, the lowest-spec iPhone X retailed for $999 in the USA, but R20 499 here.

The iPhone XS will have the same 5.8-inch OLED display, whereas the iPhone XS Max will have a massive 6.5-inch OLED display. The iPhone Xr is going to be too cheap to include the cutting-edge technology, and there's no space to incorporate 5G modules into something the size of the existing iPhone X.

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.

Everybody has analyzed Apple's traditional naming conventions including Chinese people who came up with a marketing presentation which has been flying around China's social media Weibo (via Macotakara and 9to5Mac).

According to MacRumours, pricing for the devices have been leaked to be $900 (around R13 500) for the iPhone XS, $1 015 (around R15 300) for the iPhone XS Plus or Max, and $700 (around R10 500) for the iPhone XC.

That would make the iPhone XC around £775 using today's exchange rate.

"Apple doesn't have to prove anything, other than that they are willing to segment the market more", he said, while pointing out that the company will likely be "offering a wider array of choices". Reports around what to expect from Apple's event has been making rounds of the internet since the beginning of this year. Although the iPad can be used either in a vertical or horizontal orientation, Face ID will reportedly work on the device when held in portrait mode.
