Apple issues invites for a September 10 iPhone event
Apple’s 2019 iPhones will officially be unveiled on September 10 at the Steve Jobs Theater. Located on the company’s spaceship-like Apple Park campus, the launch event is also expected to bring with it the next generation Apple Watch and possibly even some new iPads. Also on the cards is the launch of the rumored high-end 16-inch MacBook Pro.
The new, and heavily leaked, iPhone 11 family is expected to include at least one new “Pro” model and number at least three in total. These will include two high-end models to follow the iPhone Xs and Xs Max with Super Retina OLED displays sourced from Samsung and a sequel to the most popular current model iPhone, the iPhone Xr. The highlight this year will be a new triple-rear camera array on the OLED models and a new dual-camera array on the next generation Xr equivalent. Expect blistering performance from the new A13 SoC
Also expected is a new entry—level iPad with a 10.2-inch display which should see the bezels get thinned down a little. Don’t be surprised to see Apple drop the headphone jack on this model as it did with last year’s iPad Pro line. It is possible the company might also update the iPad Pro line with faster processors (think A13X) and possibly dual-rear cameras. An Apple Watch Series 5 is also a distinct possibility as is the unveiling of a long-rumored 16-inch MacBook Pro with new scissor switch mechanism for the keyboard.
