Apple Special Event - September 12th

Apple just confirmed the time and date for their next special event. As rumoured it’s on the 12th at the usual 10am US time (6pm Irish time).

Supposed to be three new iPhone models, updated Apple watches, maybe new iPad pros, and a chance of a few mac updates as well.

We usually get the final releases of the software announced at WWDC so they will probably be out right after the event. Looking forward to this one.

Pretty sure that round graphic indicates "what goes around comes around", meaning FM radio is finally back in play.

Sweet.

They better not release a ‘round’ Apple Watch.

The square shape is iconic at this stage.

After all this time, Dades, still hanging in there for the FM receiver.

I know the event is less than two weeks away but that’s a pretty big leak.

The new iPhone Xs(‘s)


The new Apple Watch Series 4


Looks like the iPhone will have the gold colour and bigger size, but wonder if they will drop the ‘Plus’ branding? Also, will the LCD version be iPhone 9?

I’m personally looking forward to the new Watch, and the bigger screen is a great addition.

Leaks all year have been spot on I was hoping for the plus. The new watch looks great with the bigger screen size. I think they will keep with the plus name for the bigger Xs Plus.
