New iPhone X 2018

Although Apple's cryptic email doesn't reveal much, the USA technology firm is expected to unveil three new iPhones at its event next week.

Based on the latest rumors, the two premium OLED devices will sport a 5.8-inch and 6.5-inch display, respectively. Apple will be adapting its apps to support horizontal layouts just as its larger Plus sized iPhones have offered in the past.

Besides the Plus size and the fresh color choice, you won't notice other differences between the iPhone XS and the current iPhone X. The 5.8-inch iPhone X will also see a successor, which will be built more like an S-series update.

Thanks to a steady stream of leaks, rumors, and even videos, we already know that Apple is expected to launch three new iPhones this year. Apple will give this handset a 6.1-inch screen and swap stainless steel for aluminum. This time around, Apple is expected to announce AirPods, an AirPower wireless charger, Apple Watch Series, and revamped iPad Pro tablets with Face ID as well at its September 12 event. As you can see from the image at the top of the post, the most noticeable change to the hardware comes in the form of a true edge-to-edge display, which is said to be around 15% larger than on previous models, with nearly no bezel. There's also a new hole in between the side button and Digital Crown, likely a new microphone for Siri to better hear you. Now another leak has appeared, suggesting that an improved Apple Watch model is also on the way.

Although the iPhone business is making more money than ever, the number of iPhones that Apple is selling isn't growing as fast as it did in the early days of the smartphone market.

In addition to a larger display, analysts have predicted that the Apple Watch S4 could sport upgraded internals and a 15 percent larger battery.
