  • New iPhone X 2018

According to Apple site 9to5Mac, which obtained the leaked images, the name is final and Apple will likely make its brand new phone available to buy before the end of September. This is the only watch face that has been leaked, but we would imagine that others have also received a facelift to accommodate the new, larger screen. Apple could also finally include dual-SIM functionality on its iPhones. Borrowing design elements from the iPhone, the Series 4 is expected to arrive with an "edge-to-edge" display with minimal bezels and up to 15 percent bigger displays compared to last year's Apple Watch Series 3.

At the September 12 event, Apple alongside the three iPhones is also expected to unveil the new Apple Watch Series 4. The 2018 iPhone launch event is going to be huge as we're expecting three new iPhone models to come out this year. Some rumours say this could be the iPhone SE 2, while some say it will be the successor to the iPhone 8 and hence will be called the iPhone 9. The biggest change is the all-new edge-to-edge display. The most notable launch this year in the iPhone line-up will be the iPhone with a 6.5-inch display which is said to be the largest display ever in any iPhone till date. Both models resemble the current iPhone X. It will also have a cheaper LCD screen instead of an OLED panel to keep costs down.

To recap, the smart money says Apple will launch three new iPhones at the 2018 Apple event, just as it did a year ago.

It's the most important day of the year for Apple, because the iPhone accounts for about two-thirds of its revenue.

Traditionally, the company releases its new phone models in the second week of September, and announces key updates to other product lines.

All the new iPhones will most likely have a glass back with support for wireless charging. They'll remove the home button and fingerprint sensing in lieu of an iPhone X-like gesture interface and Face ID for unlocking the tablet, people familiar with the plans said.
