1-inch iPhone for 2018 pictured in fancy new color options

This variant was initially predicted by some to be dubbed the iPhone Xs Plus, however it appears Apple could be set to ditch such branding.

Assuming 9to5Mac's report was accurate, and assuming Apple doesn't come up with a quick name change, we could suffer people on social media and elsewhere making the same jokes about the iPhone's name for the next year and beyond.

According to a report from 9to5Mac, Apple has chose to go with "iPhone Xs Max" for the 6.5-inch OLED iPhone coming down the pipe.

This is in contrast to the previous three generations of iPhones, which had the higher versions with the suffix "plus". The recent rumors revealed that there could be one more iPhone with big display inheriting the features from iPhone X. Some sources are saying it could be named iPhone XS Max to symbolize the bigger screen. However, the pricier 5.8- and 6.5-inch models could be available in a new gold finish. Moreover, the expected fall in prices before the new iPhone sales did not happen, but the opposite happened - iPhone X strongly soared in price. A newly leaked picture of the affordable iPhone coming this year suggests that the device will come in three colours - Red, White and Blue.

The Apple iPhone XS, XS Plus and iPhone 9 will all likely run on the same hardware, as the iPhone X and iPhone 8 models did.

Experts have denied the support for Apple Pencil in this year's iPhone so if you had any hopes of it, then be ready to be disappointed. Another possibility regarding iPad 2018 model is that it will feature FaceID just like iPhone X.

Needless to say, the obvious star of the show will be Apple's bread and butter, the 2018 iPhone lineup.

Apple's event invitation made heavy use of the color gold, fueling speculation on social media that the company plans to launch a gold-colored successor to the iPhone X, which was made available only in silver and gray a year ago. The price has been speculated to be around $749 (approx Rs 54,000). The gathering will take place at the Steve Jobs Theater on the Apple Park Campus in Cupertino starting at 10:00 a.m.

Apple is widely expected to unveil a direct successor to the current iPhone X that could be called the iPhone Xs at its forthcoming event on September 12. The smartwatch had reduced bezels, accounting for the larger screen. However, camera improvements may result in the new phones being thicker than current models. The latest version of the wearable should sport a larger edge-to-edge display.

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. If we believe the rumors spotted by Bloomberg earlier this year, the company could launch a Retina MacBook at the event.
