Tomorrow, September 12, marks the 10th anniversary of Apple’s iconic iPhone. The occasion will be marked by the first-ever event at the Steve Jobs Theater at Apple Park in Cupertino, where many new things are expected from Apple.
First up is the new iPhone. The next-generation flagship could be priced at $1,000. Following in the steps of the Samsung Galaxy S8 and the recent fascination with “Infinity” displays, the new iPhone could have an edge-to-edge OLED (organic light-emitting diode)display – superior to LCD displays – without the conventional home button, facial recognition, animated emoji, wireless charging, vertically laid out dual rear cameras, and more. It may also not be called the iPhone 8, but might be named the iPhone X. The successors to the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus are likely to be named the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus, with LCD displays, wireless charging, and other additions.
New iPhones mean a new iOS, version 11 in this case. It could be out a week later i.e. around September 19 or 20. Also expected is the new Series 3 Apple Watch, with a faster processor, a separate LTE radio allowing it to receive notifications, invoke Siri, stream music, and do much more without an iPhone nearby.
There also might be the fifth-generation of Apple TV, with support for 4K and HDR. Past leaks of 4K and HDR support on iTunes adds to this expectation. And, there might be new Air Pods coming as well.
So much to come – just a day away!
