Apple Set To Unleash 'Max' On The World On Tuesday

But fresh information continues to emerge as we move closer to the event.

Last week we got the first purported renders of the upcoming high-end iPhones, along with the rumored name for the smaller model with an OLED screen - iPhone Xs. The second model would cater to budget-conscious buyers and would sport a 6.1-inch LCD screen. The new iPhones will feature OLED displays and a new gold finish on the stainless steel sides. Historically, the "S" versions have focused on under-the-hood improvements with little external changes. So we will go out on a limb here and call it the iPhone 9. However, a new report by 9to5Mac suggests that Apple might ditch the Plus branding and instead call the rumoured 6.5-inch OLED iPhone the "iPhone XS Max". There will also be a cheaper LCD version. But it is going to ditch the "Plus" moniker this year. Apple is said to be introducing not one, but three new iPhones that are aimed to cater to various budget segments.

According to 9to5Mac, the Apple Watch Series 4 will have a 384×480 pixels resolution on the 42mm-sized dial which is slightly more dense than the 312×390 pixels display on last year's watchOS wearable.

Apple is also predicted to be lining up the announcement of a new, cheaper iPhone that will forgo some premium characteristics in exchange for a reduced price tag.

How much will they cost?

With these prices the average person who wants to get a new Apple device can get the iPhone 9. According to analyst Wamsi Mohan, iPhone XS prices might start at $999, while iPhone XS Max would reach up to a booming $1,049. We will keep you posted with the same. The prices are for the base 64GB variant.

Finally, we have also heard talks that Apple Pencil could come to the iPhone.

As far as hardware is concerned, the iPhone XS Max will be powered by the unreleased A12 bionic processor coupled with M12 motion-coprocessor. The company did the same past year with the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X but things might be a little different this time.

All three models will drop the home button and, therefore, the TouchID scanning technology. Since more than half of the Cupertino based tech giant's revenues are from the iPhone, this hesitancy to upgrade hurts Apple more than it hurts users. It also includes a new Shortcuts feature.
