The iPhone XS will reportedly be unveiled on Wednesday, September 12 at a special Apple event. The presentation will take place at theatre of a name of Steve jobs in Cupertino at 10am local time. While the latest render shows the Watch 4 with retaining a rectangular design, some other reports have also suggested a circular dial corresponding to the Apple invitation which has a circle over it. Last year, Apple launched a battery replacement program for infected iPhone models following reports of Apple slowing down older iPhone models.

According to Apple, the iPhone 8 was the best-selling iPhone model in the second quarter of the year.

According to a recent article in Bloomberg, the company is going to disrupt the established status quo. Along with the 5.8-inch size of the current iPhone X, buyers might be able to expect 6.1-inch and 6.5-inch iPhones that lack a home button as well. However, this version will be sold only in some countries. Apple iPhone Xs, iPhone Xs Max and a 6.1-inch iPhone with LCD display are expected at the launch event. Reputed analyst Ming-Chi Kuo back in June also stated that the LCD model could be priced for $600-$700.

The name iPhone XS would be ridiculed by everyone, everywhere. A dual-camera setup is a certainty, as is Face ID up front. However, the pricier 5.8- and 6.5-inch models could be available in a new gold finish. Or simply is extended display information in applications such as mail and calendar. The Pixel 3 XL is believed to feature a 6.7-inch display with a resolution of 1440 x 2960 pixels.

Among the possible colors is called gray, white, red, blue and orange.

In a week's time we will be graced with a brand new flagship phone from Apple; the iPhone XS (written as XS but pronounced as ten S).

Just we've mentioned earlier, these are still pure speculations and the same might not hold true for every iPhone launch on September 12, but reckoning that the iPhone XS and XS Plus are indeed the successors to the iPhone X, there's a chance they will be among the first to hit the market.

Given the large number of theories regarding the new iPhone items, quite unusual that nobody is considering the option of iPhone IX (9). The iPhone Xs will be priced the same as the iPhone 8 Plus was past year, and the iPhone Xs Max will command the same premium as the iPhone X did in 2017.

Lastly, the base model iPhone 9, in comparison to the other two, is said to be a budget device in comparison.

iOS 12 contains a number of new features for iPhone and iPad users.
