iPhone 8 & iPhone 8 Plus

The iPhone will be powered by Apple’s own chipset – A11. The A11 will be a 6 core chipset (4 cores will be handling the low-end, low power applications while 2 cores will be handling all of the high-end apps). It’s supposed to top all of the benchmarks as usual – though we know that benchmarks aren’t everything, it’s about the real life experience to keep in mind.

The iPhone 8 will likely stick with 2GB of RAM while the Plus model will have 3GB. Storage options are expected to be 64/128/256GB.

The display for both the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus is supposedly the same as on the iPhone 7/Plus models (4.7″-5.5″). We are not sure how reliable these leaks are as we have not seen many leaks of these two primary devices in the past few months. The display technology – IPS LCD – will stay the same for both models and only change to OLED for the iPhone X.

FaceID will also likely be available for both the iPhone 8/Plus along with a TouchID, though again – we have not seen many leaks happening regarding this.

The camera is supposed to stay at 12MP (will likely change to 16MP for next year’s flagship). The iPhone 8 Plus is supposed to have the same dual camera setup while the smaller iPhone 8 will likely stick with the single camera setup.

Both the iPhone 8/Plus models will have a glass back that will enable them to be charged wirelessly. Fast charge will apparently also be supported via the lighting cables.

iPhone X (X stands for the 10th Anniversary since the first iPhone was released back in 2007 by Steve Jobs)

The iPhone X will be the celebration of the 10th Anniversary since the first iPhone was released in 2007 by Steve Jobs. This is pretty much confirmed by the wallpaper that is showing an earth, globe with a dark, black background. (Link to the wallpapers can be found above)

The build of the iPhone X will be made out of a metal frame and a glass back – it will support wireless charge too.

The iPhone X will have the same A11 chipset (4 low, 2 high-end cores). The iPhone X will supposedly have 3GB of RAM and storage options of 128/256/512GB.

We know that the dimensions are: 143.5 x 71 x 7.5 mm. The display is expected to be made by Samsung. It’s supposedly a 5.1″ 1242 x 2800 (~601 ppi) AMOLED display with Wide colour gamut feature on top. The display will apparently be a bezel-less unit, meaning that there will be minimal bezels on the top, bottom and on the sides. Find out more about this here.

There will be a small cutout on the top bezel for the earpiece, sensors and of course the selfie camera.

The Iphone X will be available in Black, Gold, White, Silver and maybe even Red colour options.

When is it going to be available?

The iPhone 8 and 8 Plus and iPhone X will be unveiled today and go on sale in the US on 22 September. Pre-orders are expected to start on either 18 or 19 September. UK and other parts of Europe, Australia should follow shortly after.

iPhone X may be up for pre-orders, but it’s not expected to be available for 1-4 months in the shops just yet as Apple is unable to meet with the demand it will receive. According to rumors, Apple can only produce 10,000 units a day as of right now.

How much will it cost?

The price is expected to be somewhere in the $800-1400 mark. (iPhone X will likely cost the most – for the maxed out version of course) Not much is known about the prices for now, we’ll update this article if more leaks come out with the prices.

iPod

According to rumors, a new iPod will also be unveiled with FaceID capabilities. That’s all we know for now.

IOS 11, High Sierra, watchOS 4, tvOS 11 Release

We have covered the IOS 11 upgrade in detail during the WWDC conference, read more about it here.

IOS11 will be available for the following devices (likely on 19-20 September):

  • iPhone 5S
  • iPhone SE
  • iPhone 6/s and Plus
  • iPhone 7/S and Plus
  • *iPhone 8/Plus and X will launch with IOS 11
  • All iPad Air and iPad Pro models (iPad 5th gen+, iPad mini 2 and later)
  • iPod 6th generation
Apple Watch 3

The Apple Watch 3 LTE has been leaked. The crown as you can see has a different colour, but this may differ from different colour variants.

There will be 2 new colour options including the Ceramic Gray and the Blush Gold.

There will be small enhancements made to the internals to work better under pressure but don’t expect to see major changes both to the design and to the hardware, perhaps just a small upgrade and loads of software improvements compared to previous generations. (Older generation of Apple Watches will likely get the same or similar software treatment).

Airpods 2

The new generation of AirPods have also been floating around for a few months now.

It seems like the casing will be similar although the battery indicator will now be placed outside of the case to see it in an easier way.

The new AirPods are expected to have a better battery life and some small enhancements compared to the first generation.

Apple TV

No exact information is known at this moment, it’s still not clear if Apple will release a brand new AppleTV or will just push out an update to their existing lineup. Support/Compatibility for 4K, HDR content is rumored and is likely to happen in one way or another.
