Apple offers free replacement for affected iPhone 8 smartphones

  • Apple announces special event for September 12

What else might happen: It looks like Apple will be announcing new waterproof Apple AirPod 2s (but they likely won't be released until late 2019).

Apple's event invitation made heavy use of the color gold, fueling speculation on social media that the company plans to launch a gold-colored successor to the iPhone X, which was made available only in silver and gray a year ago.

Turning to other expected Apple announcements, updated AirPods, an AirPower wireless charger, a new Apple Watch, and revamped iPad Pro tablets could well feature at "Gather round".

The Apple website has also revealed the Apple Watch Series 4.

Two of the three new iPhones rumored to debut at Apple's September 12 event are just refreshes of the iPhone X: One that's the same size as the current iPhone X (5.8-inches), and a larger iPhone X that'll boast a 6.5-inch display.

Images of the Series 4 also show a new hole between the Digital Crown and the side button, which could be a new onboard mic for improved voice recognition.


Apple Podcasts will also debut on the new operating system, meaning users can now listen and control playback from their favourite shows by using the wearable exclusively.

Some say this model will see 3 cameras this year, but whether the 5.8-inch model will also see a tripe camera layout is not known. Last year, the blog shared details about Apple releases found in a nonpublic version of Apple iOS software leaked on Reddit and Apple blogs.

It's still fun to dream, and you can see Auckburaully from plenty more angles on his Behance page and in the video below.

As everyone would have expected the major highlight of the new iPhone SE 2 will be its small and compact form factor.

As we said, we aren't exactly impressed by the image itself but by Apple's choice of names.

The iPhone with LCD is said to the most affordable among the lot, will come with a 6.1-inch screen, aluminium-based shell with glass on top. There is also supposed to be a third iPhone launching this year, which we now believe to be the "iPhone 9", rather than the iPhone 8S.
