Apple confirms next iPhone event date – with gold invitations


The launch date has been confirmed for September 12 with rumours circulating as to the identity of the new iPhone X Plus, iPhone 11 or iPhone 9

has confirmed the September launch of the latest version of iPhone – with gold invitations.

The tech giant usually unveils its latest devices in September and this year is just the same.

And if the rumours are true this could be Apple’s biggest phone yet .

After weeks of speculation, the event has been confirmed for September 12 at the Steve Jobs Theater at Apple’s ‘spaceship’ HQ in Cupertino.

Invites feature a golden circle, believed to represent apple’s circular HQ, with the words ‘gather round’.

It’s unknown if the stylish invitations hold any clues as to what the upcoming phones will look like.

It’s not been long since the iPhone X (pronounced ten) had its own launch, skipping past number nine in the series altogether – which has left many fans speculating whether this will be the iPhone 9.

This idea has only been fuelled by rumours that Apple could have more than one new smartphone to launch.

Although, according to reports by Bloomberg earlier this week it is thought Apple will be using this year as an ‘s’ year – meaning any phones launched will be improved versions rather than new designs.

It’s thought the phones will have a similar design to the X but will come in different sizes and feature different screen technology.

According to the reports, this aligns with previous reports that suggest Apple is planning to launch three new iPhone X models at the September 12 event.

These will reportedly feature 5.8-inch, 6.1-inch and 6.5-inch displays and could have a battery life of that lasts more than a day.

The 6.5-inch phone will feature Apple’s biggest screen to date and both the rumoured 6.5-inch and 5.8-inch models will have a faster processing speed and better camera.

The smallest model will have an LCD screen and could be called iPhone 9.

The devices are also thought to get a new processor called the Apple A12 that will help boost battery life.

It’s also thought the new phones will have no home button and will be solely reliant on FaceID.

Based on pricing for last year’s iPhone X it’s unlikely these phones will be much cheaper but should still cost under £1,000.

If Apple sticks to a similar schedule to previous years the phones could be on the shelves by the end of October.
