Apple's next iPhones might unleash a huge upgrade cycle

Similar to previous year, Apple is expected to release 3 new iPhone models which are likely to retain the same design language as the current iPhone X. According to Tim Cook, the iPhone X has been Apple's best selling iPhone model for the past few quarters. Apple will make things official on September 12, so stay tuned for more updates as we get closer to the event. The larger model will boast a 6.5-inch OLED screen - dwarfing the iPhone X's 5.8 inches and 5.5 inches for the iPhone 8 Plus, according to Bloomberg.

This is a September Apple event, so we'll likely see the company debut the newest iPhones.

Apple will be launching three new mobile devices based on the iPhone X's design.

The image shows a watch with what appears to be an edge-to-edge display and a new watch face with eight complications, or special functions.

DeSantis, who turns 40 next month, is a former Navy lawyer who won his seat in 2012 running as a Washington outsider. Stephen Lawson, communications director for the DeSantis campaign, said the characterization of racism is "absurd".

Apple sent out invitations to press on Thursday for a special event on september 12 at the Steve Jobs Theater in Cupertino, CA. The Apple Watch Series 4 has always been rumored to sport a 15 percent bigger screen than its predecessors and this new render seems to confirm this.

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. 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.

The first looks set to be reboot of last year's iPhone X and will likely feature a faster processor, improved camera and more internal memory with some rumours suggesting as much as 512GB of storage will be available.

As for the Apple Watch Series 4, early reports point to a new design that keeps the overall aesthetic the same but minimizes the bezel.
