'Gather round': Apple unveils iPhone launch date

New iPhone X 2018

The event will be held in the Steve Jobs theatre inside Apple's ring-shaped campus in California.

The curiosity and excitement among the people have shot up as the date of the event draws closer. Apple usually streams its event live online but if you are unable to tune in, we'll have coverage of the day's events right here on TechSpot.

The new iPhones typically go on sale a few weeks after they are unveiled - in time for Christmas shopping season. Apple has in each of the past six years hosted a press conference in early September to announce a new iPhone. And lastly, the most anticipated iPhone of the year. The company is still riding high on the all-screen iPhone X it revealed past year.

Speaking of specs, all the phones are expected to come with the usual arsenal of Apple Face ID unlock, gesture control etc.

Apple is always anxious about its suppliers leaking images and parts for its upcoming products, but in recent years, numerous most critical leaks have come from within.

Authorities said three people died in the shooting , including the suspect , who turned the gun on himself after opening fire. But after winning a championship past year , Kivlen says Katz "got up and let out the weirdest scream ever".

The larger takeaway here is that Apple, despite the incredible success and popularity of the iPhone, is still looking for ways to take the user experience to the next level. While the older iPhone X had a large screen than the Pluses of years past, in practice, Apple did not support those layouts om the smaller handset, likely due to its width.

Along with the new iPhones, Apple will also be launching a new upgraded iPad.

Besides the new iPhones, Apple might also use the event to announce new Series 4 Apple Watches.

A report from 9to5Mac's Zac Hall claims this is an exclusive look at the next watch. In images of the analog watch face, the Series 4 has eight complications - four around the outside of the time and four around the watch hands. The media invites which Apple sent out reads "Gather Round" hinting towards the round shape of the watch which Apple might adopt for its wearable accessory this year, finally ditching the traditional square way. As stated by CNET, Apple is reportedly preparing one iPad Pro that's approximately 11-inch and another 12.9-inch model.

To recap, the smart money says Apple will launch three new iPhones at the 2018 Apple event, just as it did past year.
