Apple: 'Very Small Percentage' of iPhone 8 Models Are Defective

What's new? Not much! The new iPhones are expected to look and feel very much like last year's iPhone X What's new? Not much! The new iPhones are expected to look and feel very much like last year's iPhone X

Apple's September 12 event should bring new iPhones and a new Apple Watch, at the very least.

Beyond the iPhones, Apple has been working on updated AirPods, an AirPower wireless charger, a new Apple Watch, and revamped iPad Pro tablets for this year.

Apple is expected to launch three iPhone models - a standard but improved 5.8-inch iPhone, a cheaper 6.1-inch LCD iPhone and a high-end iPhone with similar dimensions to the iPhone 8 Plus. It'll have the same iPhone X edge-to-edge screen along with a glass back supported by a steel frame, which stays in line with previous models. It's unclear what that image may be referencing, but it does resemble Apple Park's circular shape. And, right on schedule, Apple is gathering the press to announce the launch of the next generation of iPhones on September 12th, at ten AM Pacific Time.

On Thursday, Warren Buffett said he slightly increased his stake in Apple recently, adding that the iPhone is "enormously underpriced" for the utility it offers users.

Apple is expected to bring a new Apple Watch with at least a larger display, and perhaps other new features (longer battery life, perhaps?).

And since the event invitation significantly used the colour gold, it fuels speculation that the company plans to launch a gold-coloured successor to the premium iPhone X, which was only available in silver and grey past year. Both the 5.8-inch and 6.5-inch iPhones will be coming with OLED displays just as the iPhone X.

You will also notice that the iPhone XS will be available in a new gold colour, presumably in addition to the black and white versions that were available with the original iPhone X. The new OLED displays will occupy much more of the watch's face though, and the case looks much thinner than it is on the current models.

The photo also shows what appears to be a new microphone hole between the crown and the side button. Although Apple continues to lead the smartwatch industry, a massive 9 out of 10 Apple Watches sold are the older Apple Watch Series 1.

While not a major overhaul, prior Apple Watch versions mostly featured internal updates such as faster processors, waterproofing and the ability to get 4G LTE cellular connectivity.
