Apple has started sending out press invites for September 10th event scheduled to be held at the Steve Jobs Theater in Cupertino, California. This is the event where we will be seeing the next generation of iPhones getting unveiled along with a few other hardware products. The launch date is the same as the one predicted in a leak that came out two weeks ago.
In typical Apple fashion, the launch event does not make it clear or gives any easy hints regarding what to expect. It shows the Apple logo in the same rainbow colors that it used during 80s era. There is a text saying "By Innovation Only" followed by the details related to the event date, venue, and timings.
If we go by rumors and leaks, iPhone 11 lineup will be made official at the event in a matter of a couple of weeks. Apple is said to continue with the strategy of releasing three models including one affordable variant and two "Pro" models. These are expected to be called iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, and iPhone Pro Max but a few reports offer other naming schemes too. Nevertheless, the three models will replace current-gen iPhone XR, iPhone XS, and iPhone XS Max respectively.
The "budget" iPhone will come with an IPS display panel and a dual rear camera setup which will be a first. The other two will sport an OLED panel and offer triple rear cameras. Some reports also suggest multiple selfie cameras which is something Apple has never done before. Among other products, we could see new iPad Pro and iPad models getting unveiled alongside a new Apple Watch. We can also expect more details related to Apple TV+ streaming service.
