The iPhone Xr is going to be too cheap to include the cutting-edge technology, and there's no space to incorporate 5G modules into something the size of the existing iPhone X. The 5.8-inch OLED option is said to be named "iPhone Xs" (that's "10 s"), while the 6.1-inch LED model's monicker remains unclear; it could be the "iPhone 9" to make up for continuity, or something else. Hall, however, believes Apple will price it closer to US$849 given better-than-expected demand for the current iPhone X this summer.

It'll be joined by a similar, but larger, 6.5-inch model, now tipped to be called the iPhone XS Max (although we're not convinced by that name).

Ahead of Apple's September 12 "Gather Round" event, an artist has envisioned a concept iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max reveal trailer. An iPhone XS Plus will likely cost even more.

Apple looks all set to release its next generation of iPhone devices on Wednesday which will come packed with bigger features and much more power.

Apple's iPhone X is displayed at the Apple Store in Tokyo's Omotesando shopping district.

We are hoping to hear more about the platform though, as - unlike iOS 12 - there's been no WatchOS beta for the eager to try.

However, it is likely that Kantar is confusing the cause and effect relation here as it is possible that people who plan to get more out of their devices are the ones that are ready to pay higher prices for larger phones, and not the other way round.

Apple is making up with the rainbow according to other leaks. Both tablets are rumoured to ditch Touch ID and the home button in favor of FaceID. But that doesn't mean that the leaks and rumours about the new suite of iPhones has slowed down.

Finally, as expected, AirPods 2 will show up, as will AirPower, the wireless charging pad that was announced at last year's event.
