Apple will stream iPhone media event on Twitter for the first time

Apple will stream iPhone media event on Twitter for the first time

As indicated, there might be the large iPhone XS Max and apart from the 6.5-inch display, Apple could try out a 3-camera setup and support for the Apple Pencil on this model.

Apple is expected to use the event at the Steve Jobs Theatre on its Cupertino campus to reveal as many as three new versions of the iPhone. So expect similar looking devices to last year's iPhone X with a few internal upgrades. Hidden in the Apple website sitemap there appears to be confirmation that the new iPhones will be called iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max and iPhone XR.

According to leaks, Apple had a lot of trouble setting its mind on the monikers.

While iPhone sales have slowed, Apple profits have risen along with the average purchase price of its handsets.

More news: Meghan Markle's half-sister called her a "Ducha**" in Twitter rant

A new set of photos has leaked that could hint at unique color options for this year's mid-range, 6.1-inch LCD iPhone.

"Apple has never competed on price", said Josh Blechman, director of capital markets at Exponential ETFs, which holds Apple shares in its exchange traded fund.

The event may see the Apple Watch getting its first significant redesign since its launch three years ago. In addition to 64GB and 256GB models, Apple will also offer a 512GB model. Though the headphones got off to a slow start, they have quickly helped Apple capture 26% of the US wireless headphone market, according to NPD Group. It will cost much less than the Xs and Xs Max, predicted to be around $600. It will likely share the dates for upcoming software updates, such as iOS 12 and Mac OS Mojave, and possibly share news about AirPods, its AirPower charging pad, and the iPad Pro line. The clever marketing geniuses at Apple have pre-installed a Apple Events app on every Apple TV running the latest tvOS.
