Apple's Next iPad Pro To Ditch The Lightning Port For USB-C

Tonight at 10.30pm India time, Apple will kick off its 2018 keynote where the company will launch the new iPhones.

Apple's invite for the september 12 launch in the USA was in gold, hinting at the return of the hue that was absent in last year's iPhone X, which came only in white and black. New Apple Watches with larger screens are also reportedly on the docket and if Apple is feeling overly generous, we may even see new iPad Pros and a refreshed entry-level MacBook although these devices could be held back for a separate event in October.

Moving on, we have the Apple Watch with the suggestion being that it will go 64-bit this year just like the iPhone, iPad, and Mac. The 5.8-inch iPhone XS is being termed as the true successor of the current iPhone X. All three are said to sport almost the same notch design at the front.

According to leaks and investor report from former KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, the new iPhones will start at $699 in the US.

Apple, which posted $53.3 billion revenue in its third quarter that ended on June 30, 2018, will unveil a raft of eagerly awaited new products on Wednesday.

The un-Apple-like move would see the iPad following in the footsteps of the MacBook, which ditched the firm's much-loved MagSafe chargers for USB-C ports in 2016. If the rumors surrounding these new devices give us some certainties, there are still some additional surprises that may arise at the last minute. The price being projected for this flagship model is anywhere between $1,000-$1,100.

- Apple TV that has support for AirPlay, which means Apple TV 2nd generation or newer with the latest Apple TV software or tvOS. Now, ahead of today's announcement, we must keep in mind that the government has increased import duty on fully built products to 20 percent and dollar is trading at Rs 72 for a rupee.

The iPhone X, a dramatically redesigned model released last fall, got rid of the home button and introduced facial-recognition technology to unlock the device.

Samsung's Galaxy Note 9 launched with a near $1,000 price tag in the United States and P55,990 for the base model in the Philippines.

As per the image, Apple will pack AirPods with Lightening connector, Lightening to USB Cable, USB Power Adapter with the iPhone XS.

The iPhone XC is expected to be relatively more affordable iPhone. "Apple took them down immediately after we published". In fact, if you didn't know, one of the main reasons for the push towards screen sizes larger than 5 inches was the requirement to improve the effectiveness of mobile advertisements and not really convenience of the user.
