IPhone 9 may be Apple’s most expensive iPhone yet


With most brands already out with their goodies, the tech world's sights are now waiting for the final flagships for 2018 from Apple and Google, which are set to be unveiled in the coming weeks. But since Apple is secretive about the upcoming iPhones, most of what we know is speculation. But before the company could get to it, a new leak has surfaced on Chinese social network Weibo, which uncovers the key specifications and pricing of the upcoming Apple products such as iPhone XS, XC, iPad Pro, MacBook, and Apple Watch Series 4. But their cameras will, most likely, not be similar. So it seems that the larger version of the iPhone XS will not be the iPhone XS Plus. Past leaks had just said that Apple was wanting to call both OLED iPhones, i.e., the 5.8-inch and 6.5-inch gadgets, as iPhone Xs. It is also seen with a single rear camera.

According to Bloomberg, all models will have an edge-to-edge display, enhanced augmented reality (AR) capabilities, and an A12 processor. Apple introduced the iPhone 7 and 8 in gold variants, but the iPhone X was only available in silver and space grey.

Also a gold color for the iPhone XS will be an option among the other usual colors.

The iPhone Xs Max will essentially replace the "Plus" models in the previous iterations. So today's leak reveals the naming of the largest iPhone. While it will feature an iPhone X-like design, its specs are much closer to the iPhone 7 and 8. The screen could measure about 6.1 inches.

What About The iPhone SE 2?

Analysts don't believe that Apple will deliver the lightning to headphone jack adapter with the 2018 models, based on what Apple's adapter supplier Cirrus Logic. Since the new handsets are expected to sport screens measuring 6.5 inches and 6.1 inches, respectively, their cases are obviously larger than the iPhone X, which sports a 5.8-inch screen.

It is officially confirmed that Apple will be hosting its biggest hardware event on Wednesday, September 12, according to OSXDaily.
