Apple insider betrays nearly every launch set for new iPhone event

We're expecting the flagship iPhone X Plus (or Max) to cost somewhere in the region of £100, which proved annoying to some people.

Previous rumours have seemingly revealed that the more expensive, premium new iPhones will be called the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Plus, but the latest also reveals the name of the third device: iPhone XC.

Credit: DetroitBORG/YouTubeThe new iPhones look like they're shipping on September 21, at least if you're willing to believe an internal email an Italian shipping company is sending to its employees. While it has not confirmed the launch, press have been invited to the "Apple Special Event from the Steve Jobs Theater". Not only that, a recent ad from China Telecom also shows an iPhone with dual SIM cards and the text, "New iPhone coming soon, dual SIM support, I've been waiting for you".

Days ahead of Apple's big iPhone event on september 12, Apple analyst and speculator Ming-Chi Kuo has dropped (via 9to5Mac) a bunch of tidbits for future Apple products.

But Apple's tablets have struggled to convince buyers to upgrade in significant numbers, leaving the line to plateaux around the 9-13m units shipped a quarter over the last two years, down from the heady highs of 26m in the first quarter of 2014. That hedging phrase leaves the possibility wide open that the iPhone could be called something else. Besides Apple's mainstream launches, a series of three iPhones might be announced: a larger version of the iPhone X, an updated one, and a cheaper one equipped with an LCD display and measuring 6.1 inches. The launch event will take place at the company's new Apple Park campus in Cupertino, California.

Since this is a concept video, its based on leaks including the leaked iPhone XS marketing image. And while we know a bit less about the next-gen Apple Watch as compared to Apple's 2018 iPhone lineup, the few Apple Watch rumors we've seen thus far are reason enough to get excited.

The consensus expectation is that the new LCD iPhone will be priced between US$699 and US$749, Goldman Sachs analyst Rod Hall wrote Friday in a note to investors.
