Apple to unveil bigger, more expensive iPhone today: Here`s what to expect

Joss Rosignol MacRumors

Apple on Wednesday was expected to unveil new iPhones, playing up eye-grabbing edge-to-edge screens in a bid to strengthen its position in a largely saturated global smartphone market. If Apple decides to go big and aggressive in India, we could see the company taking an initial hit in price.

One of the things that we noted when we reviewed the iPhone X is that while the new devices support fast charging, they don't actually come with a fast charger. If you've been keeping up with word on the street, then you'll know that Apple is rumored to be launching three different iPhones tomorrow.

"Apple has never competed on price", said Josh Blechman, director of capital markets at Exponential ETFs, which holds Apple shares in its exchange traded fund. With that context in mind and price of iPhone in the past few years, it seems the new iPhones will be much more expensive than existing models.

Speculation includes talk that Apple will introduce three new iPhone models infused with features from a premium iPhone X that debuted a year ago with a $1,000 price tag. While the bigger version of the iPhone XS will be called iPhone XS Plus or iPhone XS Max or simply iPhone XS (6.5-inch).

The event may see the Apple Watch getting its first significant redesign since its launch three years ago.

Russians vote as opposition calls pension protests
However, United Russia lost the first place to the Communist Party in the republic of Khakasia and Irkutsk and Ulyanovsk oblasts. The protests coincide with elections for 26 heads of Russia's 85 regions, including in Moscow , which are being held on Sunday.


The landmark was the latest victory for Tim Cook, who faced skepticism when he took over as chief executive in 2011 from Jobs just before his death. Now, ahead of today's announcement, we must keep in mind that the government has increased import duty on fully built products to 20 percent and dollar is trading at Rs 72 for a rupee.

There is a glimmer of hope for Apple, though, as the case revolves around whether or not the patent in question is valid, rather than whether Apple's A-branded chips use FinFET technology.

All the usual updates could be included such as faster processors, better cameras and more internal storage.

I am on the fence about the new iPhones, simply because the iPhone X is treating me just fine nearly a year later and I'm not entirely sold on the idea of going with the bigger iPhone XS Max. Both the bold new color options and the potential "Xc" moniker echo Apple's lower-cost iPhone 5c handset from 2013. Apple is also rumoured to add Retina Display to this year's MacBook Air.

It is predicted that Apple products will be available to buy in the first week of October.

Customers bought the iPhone X, in November 2017, at the Apple Store on New York's Fifth Avenue.

It also brought the iPhone into a new price bracket: $999.

When does the Apple event start?

Apple may or may not reveal the new laptop Wednesday, when it is holding a press event on its campus in Cupertino, California.
