September is just around the corner and September in the smartphone world means Apple is gearing up to introduce its next iPhones as well as, perhaps, some announcements about what other tech it’s working on.
The company has announced that it will hold its 2019 event on September 10th, at the Steve Jobs Theater in Cupertino, California at 1 PM ET / 10 AM PT. While these events have been going on for years in almost similar fashion, one thing will be different this year: Jony Ive, who has been part of the Apple design team for 30 years, will not play a role in the event as he has announced his departure a while ago.
However, everything else will go on as it always has: Apple will most likely unveil three new iPhone models that will replace the iPhone XS, XS Max and XR line which will feature a triple camera array on the back.
Some rumors suggest that the selfie camera will have 120 fps slow-motion capabilities while the Pro devices in the line will be able to wirelessly recharge AirPods by just having them placed on top. Other features the smartphones are expected with is a wider-angle Face ID sensor and improved water and shatter resistance.
The iPhones might also arrive with the latest A13 chipset and 3D Touch could be replaced with Haptic Touch instead. As far as 5G connectivity goes, fingers crossed but we might only see such an iPhone in 2020.
The invitations have been sent and, while the design doesn’t really reveal a lot, it’s well known Apple usually ties in their design to what they’re going to introduce or reveal. This time, the invitation carries the tagline “By innovation only”, accompanied by the Apple logo in bright, liquid-like colors reminiscent of the original rainbow logo the company sported in the past. People suggest this might mean Apple might return to it or, perhaps, the next smartphones will feature vibrant colors.
Whatever it will prove to be we’ll know more about what’s going on on September 10th, provided some major leaks don’t happen, of course.
