Apple expected to unveil bigger, pricier iPhone on Wednesday

Apple unveils new iPhones today

As ATH reports, someone at Apple chose to update the product sitemap file on Apple.com, presumably as part of the preparations for the new smartphones being revealed at the Apple iPhone event kicking off at 1pm ET today.

Even though Apple's Autumn launch event is happening later today, it seems last-minute leaks about soon-to-be-launched products just can't be contained now that even more info about updated iPhones and the Apple Watch has trickled out.

For those wondering, you will be able to download iOS 12 final on the 17th of September, according to Apple during its iPhone Xs keynote. The device has been rumoured to be a slightly "cheaper" alternative to the iPhone Xs and its expected £1,000 price tag.

The leaked detail also reveals the new colour shades for the cases. "First is the update to the iPhone line up and we are expecting three new phones", Abbas Ali, managing editor of TechRadar Middle East, told The National.

This is the first time that Apple has offered an iPhone with 512GB of storage. This gives the device a bigger display than an iPhone 8 Plus in a smaller overall handset.

The new top model, XS Max, is expected to have a 6.5-inch (16.5-cm) screen with an edge-to-edge display and an OLED display, according to the sitemap code.

The iPhone Xs and iPhone Xs Max are expected to be released in September.

Stay tuned afterwards though as tech sites will have a huge amount of extra info to reveal as they get hands on with the new devices.

The new tablets will feature slimmer bezels and an 11-inch or 12.9-inch display.

Apple, which is looking for ways to lessen reliance on phones for revenue, opened its event by announcing the new Apple Watch Series 4 range with edge-to-edge displays, like its latest phones, which are more than 30 percent bigger than displays on current models.

The new MacBook is said to be aimed at consumers and schools, while the Mac mini will seek to meet the needs of graphic designers and other professionals.

The iPhone XS has landed.

The new watches are expected to feature the most drastic redesign since they were launched in 2014, including larger screens that span the edges of the face, allowing for more information to be displayed.

The Apple Watch Series 4 will be available for pre-order on September 14 and launch on September 21, starting at $399 for the Global Positioning System model and $499 for the cellular option.
