#TechToday: Apple rumoured to launch three new iPhones in September

The tech world is waiting expectantly for Apple to announce its latest batch of iPhones.

The devices will likely be unveiled sometime in the second week of September, and rumours this year have been pretty consistent, pointing to the launch of three new devices.

A new report from Bloomberg is the latest to follow this prediction.

Bloomberg says that some persons inside Apple are labelling this another “S year” — meaning that the new phones will keep existing designs, but update the internals.

As growth in the global mobile market slows, Apple will also be looking to raise average prices of its handsets.

Bloomberg says persons can expect an upgraded iPhone X with a 5.8-inch OLED screen; a new high-end iPhone with a 6.5-inch OLED screen; and a new cheaper model, with a 6.1-inch LCD screen.

The two larger devices may have dual-SIM card slots in some regions.

The 6.1-inch iPhone will come in a variety of colors and will also have un-colored aluminum edges instead of the color-matching stainless steel casing on the iPhone X.

All three devices will have the new gesture controls introduced in the iPhone X as well as Apple’s face-unlocking system Face ID.

Apple is also expected to take advantage of the 6.5-inch device’s larger screen with the ability to “view content side-by-side” in apps like Mail and Calendar.

Sometime this year we can also expect updated AirPods; a new Apple Watch with a larger screen in the same body; a new wireless charger and upgraded iPads Pros with slimmer bezels and Face ID replacing the fingerprint-sensing home button.
