The all new iPhone will be getting a bigger screen that could be named as the iPhone XS Plus as it is likely to be called as the iPhone XS. What are your thoughts on the new iPhone XC and iPhone XS Plus names?

Tablet sales have been slowly declining in recent years, but an overhaul to the iPad could be enough to entice more people to upgrade or enter the tablet market, particularly if a revamp involves introducing a larger display and Face ID. The iPhone X, meanwhile, has a Dh661.50 disparity between its own 64GB and 256GB offerings. The iPhone XC is listed at a price of 5888 Chinese yuan, iPhone XS at 7388 and the larger iPhone XS Plus is set at 8388 yuan. Quartz, meanwhile, reported that the iPhone X tops out at $1,455.23 (Dh5,346) in Hungary.

In the leaked photos and videos, the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max can be seen in the new gold color.

The company is forecast to sell 220 million iPhones in 2018, which is flat compared to past year, but Apple has successfully raised unit prices without consumer backlash. There's also a possibility, however slight, that Apple may simply call it the iPhone 9. In fact, even the size of the iPhone XS Max may match that of 5.5- inch iPhone 8 Plus.

Price wise, there are rumblings that Apple is planning to aggressively price its 6.1-inch iPhone model as a means to combat longer upgrade cycles.

Space Station's view of Hurricane Florence looks eerily apocalyptic
Hurricane Florence is shaping up to be a terrible storm, and it does not look any better when you look at it from space. The photo shows the churning storm, which according to Arnold, was later joined by Hurricane Isaac and Hurricane Helene.

The biggest changes to Apple's premium iPhone models could very well focus on camera technology. Recently a report also hinted that the new iPhones could offer around six colours, which includes Red, Space Grey, Rose Gold, Ivory White, Spicy Orange and Cobalt Blue.

Samsung and Huawei - who along with Apple make up the top three phone makers by market share - have already launched critically acclaimed flagship smartphones this year, placing more pressure on Apple to deliver with its latest iPhone.

Industry experts are also predicting a fourth-generation Apple Watch will be introduced during the event, which is taking place at the firm's Apple Park campus in California on Wednesday. Some models, however, may come with 3GB of RAM, especially the budget model. If history is any indication, iPhone Xs pre-orders will open up on Friday, September 14 ahead of a release on September 21.

We can also expect fast charging, as Apple will probably include a fast charger in the box. Meanwhile, there's a good chance that both the Xs and Xs Max models will boast more powerful batteries than their predecessors along with dual SIM card slots. Suffice it to say, you will hopefully be able to pick up the iPhone of your choice, no matter the model, in just a few weeks.

September is now the traditional time for iPhone updates, and this year will be no different. We will bring all the details and updates on the new iPhones to you in real time once they are officially launched on September 12.
