So What Is Apple Actually Going To Call The New Cheap iPhone?

Apple's annual unveiling of the latest iPhone is upon us once again. We may also learn about a new generation of Apple Watches, iPad Pros, and possibly get a first look at the successor to the Macbook Air.

Apple will launch three new iPhone models at its September 12 event, but the naming scheme is still not clear for all three models. Apple leaker Benjamin Geskin claims that Apple may stick to "iPhone XC" for the LCD iPhone. Just last week, reports popped up indicating that new 6.5-inch iPhone - the largest of the three - will be called the iPhone Xs Max, with Apple dropping the "Plus" moniker entirely for 2018.

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. 9to5Mac predicts the phone will be called the iPhone XS Max, killing the previously used "Plus" labeling.

Later this week, the technology giant will hold an event at its California headquarters where as many as three new versions of the iPhone are expected to be introduced. In addition, they will have LCD displays while the single SIM, more expensive models will have OLED displays. It will also have a design that will use aluminium frame and glass body. Apple has considered calling the phone the "iPhone Xr", one of the people said.

The first is expected to be an updated iPhone X with similar specs to the existing device but some new and improved internal and software features - similar to the S models the company has released in the past.

Make sure you visit Metro.co.uk tomorrow for all the news from the Apple launch event. It is said to come packed with a 2,600 (or 2700) mAh battery.

The defensive squad as a whole showed a lot of promise, especially considering the number of first and second year players. This has been an absolutely disastrous opening Sunday for Tennessee Titans quarterback Marcus Mariota .

For an event steeped in as much secrecy as Apple's annual iPhone reveal, there is a certain predictability to it all.

The iPhone XC will be a cheaper version of the iPhone X - which now retails for $1,000 - and is geared for those wanting most of the features of the iPhone X at a cheaper price point, similar to what the company did with the iPhone 5C in 2013.

Shares of Apple slid Monday as mounting trade war tensions overshadowed the company's upcoming product launches.

Apple has already announced a new AirPods case that can charge wirelessly, but other new features are still rumored, like water resistance and noise cancellation.

Beyond phones and watches, Apple is planning a series of other products later this year.

It would be a significant change for Apple's iPad Pro lineup, potentially giving it much better compatibility with external hardware and accessories. The company faced development challenges, but plans to launch it as soon as this month, Bloomberg News reported earlier this year. Additionally, Kuo believes that Apple will bundle an 18W USB-C charger with its 2018 iPad Pros, up from the 5W adapter it now bundles with them. It could help all users if Apple made it easier to identify the availability of 3D Touch via a marker on the app icons.
