Apple will show off its 2018 iPhones on September 12

While the company has yet to make anything official, the rumor mill is rife with whispers of what the the company has in store.

Apple's next big fall hardware reveal will take place on September 12th, according to a source with knowledge of the company's plans. It's being touted as an "S year", which means we'll get incremental upgrades rather than big changes.

Of course, in the meantime, it just means that Apple will have another statistic to lavish on its trio of new iPhones in order to keep them ahead of the likes of Samsung and Huawei.

Apple is expected to announce three new iPhones this year: a 6.1-inch entry-level "iPhone 9", an updated 5.8-inch iPhone X, and a 6.5-inch "iPhone X Plus". The forthcoming smartwatch will feature edge-to-edge display and minimal bezels.

It's less likely but not impossible that Apple will refresh the Macbook Air with a long overdue Retina display. The 6.1-inch iPhone is expected to be the company's comparatively cheaper model with an LCD display. But excluding Pencil support might not be that big of a deal for iPhone users, especially if that feature isn't accompanied by a redesign of Apple's Pencil, an iPad accessory that seemingly embraces form over function compared to similar styli from the competition.

India fast bowler Bhuvneshwar Kumar will make a comeback to competitive cricket after he was declared fit on Monday. After tests in London, he was sent to the NCA, with the Board's medical team monitoring his rehabilitation.

Tech commentators are purporting that Apple's 2018 iPhones will have a newly developed A12 CPU chip inside that increases battery efficiency by 40%.

Rumors also suggest this new iPhone will not come with 3D Touch. Moreover, the company is also expected to release new iPad Pro models and the Apple Watch Series 4.

Oh, and Apple will probably finally ship the AirPower wireless charger a year after it was announced.

Apple's own use of the feature is usually relegated to simple actions like previewing messages or photos, actions too benign for many to be bothered.

Loup Ventures' survey was small and its figures might not be a totally accurate prediction of upcoming sales (not everyone who says they will buy an iPhone actually will), but the results are still a good indication that there's particularly keen interest in the iPhone 9.
