Apple to unveil new iPhones in coming weeks

Additionally, 9to5Mac revealed an image of the new and upcoming Apple Watch Series 4 in a rose gold finish, which is suggested to debut at the iPhone keynote event as well. But we may have to wait until another Apple event, possibly in October, to learn more about any new peripherals.

The 5.8-inch and 6.5-inch iPhones will come with OLED displays and likely a new and faster A12 processor and improved dual cameras.

Apple, as always, has remained tight-lipped about its product plans, and it's not clear how the company will pitch so many new models of the iPhone to customers.

Ars will be at Apple's September event reporting on all the news, so be sure to check back for the latest on September 12.

The September 12 date seemingly corroborates what a French radio station claimed was the iPhone event date, from earlier this week.

Trump wouldn't need to wait until his new choice for attorney general was confirmed by the Senate, which would be a hard fight. Attorney General Jeff Sessions says his Justice Department won't be "improperly influenced by political considerations".

At first glance, and even second, it looks very much like existing Apple Watches. Some things are glaringly obvious from a first glance, like that bigger new display and thinner bezels. New Apple Watches with larger screens are also said to be on the docket. Apple is also supposedly going to announce a 6.1-inch iPhone that will be cheaper than the two iPhone Xs models.

Nonetheless, if Apple does do away with the conventional button, millions more users will have to relearn the most basic UX of the iPhone (one that Steve Jobs frequently touted).

The 2018 event is also taking place live from the headquarters in Cupertino with proceedings expected to get underway at around 6pm BST.

Apple's clever 3D Touch feature has seen mixed success since its introduction in 2015 with the iPhone 6s. That lines up with the naming scheme that Apple has used in the past, which added an "S" to model names that were in-between major generations and focused on internal changes.
