With a 5.8-inch screen, it will be an advanced version of the iPhone X, which was launched in September, 2017.

A new and upcoming iPad Pro could come with a USB-C port instead of Apple's proprietary Lightning port, according to Apple analyst Ming Chi Kuo, who has a great track record with Apple device predictions. Last year, Apple had a change of heart last year and launched the new iPhone models nearly immediately after the India availability. It looks exactly similar to the current iPhone X, with the display notch and the vertical dual camera setup. The event kicks off at 10:00 AM Pacific, or 1:00 PM Eastern, and if Apple does have a lot to talk about we may see the company just dig right into it.

Samsung's Galaxy Note 9 launched with a near $1,000 price tag in the U.S. and P55,990 for the base model in the Philippines. The iPhone X was bezel-less, killed the home button and was the most expensive phone Apple had ever put in a box.The success of the phone seems to have taught Apple one thing, when it comes to a premium phone the price elasticity is more and people seem to be okay pushing themselves to buy a more expensive phone, as long as they see value in it. But, out of all the three iPhones launching this year, the 6.1-inch iPhone could be the most exciting one, because, the price. If you are using an iOS device, which means either an iPhone or an iPad, the live stream can be viewed from the firm's website on Safari browser.

This is why we should stop expecting Apple to launch a cheap iPhone for the masses. Plan for around two hours, with room for it go a little over or under depending on the number of announcements and updates. Or stream to Apple TV via AirPlay with a second-gen+ Apple TV with the latest Apple TV software or tvOS. Besides, India doesn't work with a carrier model like the USA where consumers could pay a fixed monthly bill over a period of 12 or 24 months instead of a heavy bill upfront to buy a new flagship. Reply #stop to opt out. "Don't expect massively disruptive new features, but a smart pricing repositioning around an enhanced iPhone X, enabling Apple to increase the overall average selling price of its smartphone lineup, including for the rumoured 6.1-inch LCD smartphone", he added.

Last time we saw a pair of iPad Pros be released, they came in two form factors - one had a manageable 10.5-inch display, while the other sported a gargantuan 12.9-inch screen. While the bigger version of the iPhone XS will be called iPhone XS Plus or iPhone XS Max or simply iPhone XS (6.5-inch). More importantly, going for no more than a Full HD display would help Apple maintain an affordable price point. Connectivity options of the handset are listed as Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, NFC and Global Positioning System. This model will also feature Touch ID, but without the Touch Bar. It was the first mass-market smartphone to demand a $1,000 starting price.

Apple supports Chrome, Firefox, and Edge browsers to watch its events and now on Twitter as well.
