Apple to unveil new iPhones, revamped iPads and more

Apple iPad Pro 2018 is also expected to launch on September 12 Apple to unveil new iPhones, revamped iPads and more

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. New features include grouped notifications, a fresh set of animojis and "digital health" features that let users track how much they use their phones everyday.

Tonight's the night: when Apple unveils its latest iPhone, iPad and no doubt a whole bunch of other stuff.

Apple's market capitalization has passed $1 trillion and the company needs to sustain revenue growth.

We'll likely see three new iPhones, a revamped Apple Watch, and maybe some new iPads.

While iPhone sales have slowed, Apple profits have risen along with the average purchase price of its handsets.

But it is a third expected model with 6.1-inch display, potentially called the iPhone 9, that has intrigued analysts most.

What we won't see, however, are some of the innovative leaps being promised by some of Apple's competitors. Looks like, the Apple fans are more excited about the affordable iPhone than the iPhone X successors. "Don't expect massively disruptive new features, but a smart pricing repositioning around an enhanced iPhone X, enabling Apple to increase the overall average selling price of its smartphone lineup, including for the rumoured 6.1-inch LCD smartphone", he added. If you know how much Apple computer chargers are, then you also know this is a big deal.

Apple might be planning to announce high-end headphones at the event today.

The iPhone Xs and iPhone Xs Max could be priced around Rs 85,500 and Rs 1,05,000 in India.

An iPad Pro with USB-C could also be a massive step towards iPads that could realistically replace your computer, as per Apple's marketing that claims iPads can replace traditional computers like laptops. If Apple is indeed going to launch iPhone Xs, iPhone Xs Max and the iPhone Xc as predicted, it is going to be the first year Apple will not have a phone with a screen size under 5 inches.

Succeeding MacBook Air, it will be a lower-cost laptop with a 13-inch display. This time the rumoured "iPhone Xs" has surfaced on the web in few images, showing what might be new from Apple from the iPhone design and looks perspective. The drastic change in the price of dollar versus rupee should definitely affect the India pricing of newer models. Apple's offerings may also impact Huawei's P20 Pro.

Just don't expect Apple to make that mistake ever again.
