Apple's newest iPhone could have big screen, big price

Apple Inc is expected to blast further past the $1,000 price barrier when it launches new iPhones on Wednesday, but Wall Street is most intrigued by how deep into its larger-than-ever lineup prices hikes may go.

The US tech giant, one of the world's most valuable public companies, will reveal three new iPhones, Apple Watches with bigger screens, overhauled iPad Pros, a laptop with a clearer screen, a Mac mini desktop aimed at professionals and some new accessories including the AirPower wireless charger, at Steve Jobs Theater at the company's headquarters in Cupertino, California.

Apple's market capitalization has passed $1 trillion and the company needs to sustain revenue growth. The prediction is that there will be three models of iPhones apart from the Apple Watches and iPad Pros and so on. The same site also spotted the iPhone Xs listed on the Apple website for a brief period, and the screenshot shows availability pegged for September 21.

You might see a lot more talk about USB-C than Apple's (annoyingly proprietary) Lightning connection this year, and probably even more goofing around with augmented reality - to the delight of backyard dinosaurs and robots.

A low-priced version of the iPhone X, with a 6.1-inch screen, it is expected to attract mass attention.




Apple is expected to launch a supersized version of the iPhone X called the iPhone XS Max with a 6.5-inch screen.

Plotting the course of iPhone's dollar and Indian pricing over the course of the 5-year period starting 2014 with the iPhone 6, Apple is likely to announce its most expensive iPhone models yet in India. Huawei, which recently overtook Apple in global smartphone sales, has said it is working on a flexible device of its own.

Apple might be planning to announce high-end headphones at the event today. To keep it that way, Apple will be building on past successes rather than introducing anything dramatically new. Just hours away before Apple unveils its next big thing, case maker Spigen has started listing its new range of cases for the upcoming iPhone Xs and iPhone Xs Max.

That's why it's a bit surprising that Apple has chose to livestream its iPhone XS launch on the platform this year, as first reported by TechCrunch.

It also brought the iPhone into a new price bracket: $999. Apart from that, we don't really know much about the Watch 4.
