In addition to the three new devices, it's also expected that Apple will confirm a release date for its new operating system for iPhone and iPad.

Investor Warrant Buffett, speaking on Thursday to CNBC, said the iPhone is "enormously underpriced" even when it costs $1,000, given how indispensable it has become for so many people.

After Samsung had introduced their Galaxy Note9, it's time for Apple to unveil their latest iPhone models for 2018. While Apple's supply chain leaks are common because of third party involvement, product marketing images like these are unheard of.

In an official statement, Apple says there's a logic board issue in some of the iPhone 8 units manufactured between September 2017 and March 2018 - essentially, the handsets sold in the first six months.

Images of Thursday's scene on U.S. media show vast area of debris and a bus missing its front section up to the front tires. A motorist who came upon the scene described it as chaotic as passengers were on the ground and people were screaming.

The regional restriction has been verified by a number of Twitter users, including The Verge senior editor Tom Warren, and based on various Reddit threads and Apple support forum discussions dating back to June, this was always the case for Russian folks wanting to show their rainbow flag-inspired colors.

Apple is expected to bring a new Apple Watch with at least a larger display, and perhaps other new features (longer battery life, perhaps?). The new models will also reportedly increase in size, from a 10.5-inch version to an 11-inch and a 12.9-inch option. Both the 5.8-inch and 6.5-inch iPhones will be coming with OLED displays just as the iPhone X. If you look closely, it comes across as the rings around Saturn, and says "Gather round" underneath the circle. The two OLED devices will also be offered in gold and will be dubbed the iPhone XS.

What's most eye-catching, however, is that there is a new watch face that packs an incredible amount of information on-screen - in fact, it seems nearly like information overload at first glance. Meanwhile, on the side of the Apple Watch Series 4 we can see what looks to be an updated Digital Crown and a small hole that could be an additional microphone.

In terms of pricing, Apple will possibly continue its $1000 (Rs 71,000 approximately) mark for the 6.5-inch iPhone XS. This year's gathering will take place at the Steve Jobs Theater on the Apple Park campus in Cupertino, California, on September 12 (a Wednesday). These include more watch faces as well as improved health tracking features.You now get to be more competitive with the new Competition mode on WatchOS 5.
