The day is finally here. Every year, Apple unveils new iPhone models around this time of the year. This year’s Apple iPhone event is taking place on September 12 — today — in a few hours.
It doesn’t matter if you are a devoted Apple fanboi or an Android-loving iPhone-basher, Apple events are worth watching live. It’s fun to see those executives come on stage one by one and boast about “millions of iPhones” being sold and how they are ahead of their competition. Like, there can not be a better phone ever made other than an iPhone.
What to Expect from Apple’s “Gather Round” Event?
The Cupertino-based tech-giant recently turned a trillion-dollar company by convincing people to buy their overpriced products. So expect them to boast about that at the event. Then you might hear them talking about how successful their previous products have been and how they are bringing change in the society.
Besides that usual drama, Apple is expected to unveil new iPhone models. If rumors and speculations turn our to be true, we will see three different iPhone models this year. We really don’t want to get into what will they be called. Because probably all of Apple products carry mediocre names already. You can use your energy in something more productive and let the company announce the name of their new phone.
In addition to new iPhones, we are expecting the company to announce the all-new Apple Watch Series 4. This re-designed watch is expected to have a larger display and a thinner chassis. It will be worth knowing how better does the watch gets over the previous Apple Watch Series 3.
It has been two years since Apple’s truly-wireless earphones called AirPod were released. We expect them to be updated with new features and get a re-design. No leak has suggested this so it’s just a speculation.
Apple’s long-awaited wireless charging pad is also said to (finally) debut at today’s event.
Some rumors suggest that Apple can announce new MacBook models. But we think that’s unlikely at today’s event. The announcement could be made later this year.
