Apple Will Introduce The Latest iPhone on September 12: Report

Every year, around the holiday season, Apple blesses their consumers with a new iPhone. The Summer is drawing to an end, which means it is about that time where Apple begins to advertise for the upcoming holiday season. That also means, in a few short months, all hell will break lose as consumers wait on extended lines to grab the latest device. According to Variety, Apple gave out invitations for the company’s next iPhone event on Thursday morning. 

The iPhone revealing event will take place on September 12 at the Steve Jobs Theater on the company’s campus in Cupertino, California. The exclusive invites highlighted a golden ring, with the phrase “gather round” written underneath. The ring looks like the main iPhone button, and may hint at new features that will be connected with the central touch-sensitive placement. Apple is expected to announce several different iPhones at the event, including the rumored iPhone 9 and iPhone X2. Some the new iPhones are expected to run at a cheaper price with fewer features, while others will boast the same expensive price tag as 2017’s X model. Apple consumers are expecting other items to be announced as well, such as a new Apple Watch. 

Apple Accidentally Leaks Model Names & Specs For Upcoming iPhone Release

The Chinese periodical Economic Daily News has released an insider report detailing which correctly revises an earlier report that Apple’s cheaper iPhone X variant won’t support dual SIM card technology, only the iPhone 9 will support that function. Dual sim functionality is popular in China, because smaller tech companies fer their employee-base inexpensive dual SIM handsets. That seems to be reasoning behind Apple’s decision to limit the dual SIM function to its cheapest model, because the rest the World is not entitled to such treatment.

The latest information to leak is the name for said phones belonging to Apple’s iPhone X line: the iPhone XS, iPhone 9, and iPhone XS Plus. Of the three, it’s the cheaper model, the iPhone 9 which seems to have the better specs. So the question remains, why is Apple working from back to front this late in the game?

Releasing the iPhone 9 after basically skipping ahead in the count, makes little sense from consumer point view. But who am I to tell Apple how to conduct their business? These leaked image don’t say much about the inner workings each device, but they do properly depict a marginal difference in size from one model to the next.

Don’t take my word for it, but Apple’s iPhone X/9 reveal looks to be quite underwhelming at first glance.
