The Apple iPhone launch event is less than 12 hours away and the excitement for this year's handset series is reaching new heights with the fans. A latest leak also confirms that there's a chance that Apple might skip the Touch Bar on the new MacBook Pro.

Google is also expected to announce a new version of its Pixel smartphone when it holds its own event in October.

Briefly, Apple's 2018 iPhone lineup is expected to consist of iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max (Plus) and iPhone XR.

It is that time of the year again when excitement peaks around smartphones with most of the brands coming out with new launches and upgrades.

According to previous reports, the 2018 12.9-inch iPad Pro will be smaller than the 2017 model, all the while retaining the same screen size.

Most of the buzz is swirling around a rumored iPhone that is supposed to boast a 6.5-inch OLED screen, up from 5.8 inches on the existing iPhone X.

It's gaining strength and could even be upgraded to Category 5 before it makes landfall early Friday, according to forecasts. East coast, preventing Florence from doing the normal turn, said University of Miami hurricane expert Brian McNoldy.

Shortly before this video was shared, a sketchy leak from Chinese social media site Weibo began making the rounds, purportedly showing off the SIM trays of several (if not all) of the possible iPhone Xr / Xc color options, including gold, red, black, silver, and blue-gray. Still given that rupee is very weak against dollar right now, expect the price of above Rs 1 lakh for the iPhone XS Plus. There's really no point for Apple to continue to limit the outlets it streams to.

Apple had made its intentions clear that it wants to have a model at a lower price capture the large market there and the third model to be released this year might be it.

Apple iPhone XC, iPhone XS, iPhone X Plus launch rumoured Apple is expected to launch three iPhones namely the iPhone XC, which has also been tipped as the iPhone 9 or the 6.1-inch LCD iPhone, iPhone XS and the iPhone X Plus.

Apple's other products category, including HomePod, AirPods, Apple TV, Apple Watch, Beats speakers, headphones and accessories, had sales worth $3.74bn in the third quarter, a jump from $2.74bn a year ago. We are expecting Apple to add 10 percent margin to compensate the depreciating rupee and increased import duty. 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.

The iPhone Xs and iPhone Xs Max could be priced around Rs 85,500 and Rs 1,05,000 in India. Let us know in the comments.
