Apple event: New iPhone, more to be unveiled in September

Apple has announced a new Independent Repair Program for iPhones, iPads and other devices that will allow third party repair companies to repair out of warranty Apple devices with genuine apple parts. At its occasion in Cupertino, California, Apple might additionally showcase new software program from iOS 13 and its deliberate paid-for TV streaming app. Apple likely has a full plate of announcements lined up on that date, with the headlining devices being the 2019 family of iPhones. The event will start from 10:00 AM PT (10:30 PM IST) onwards and Apple will offer a live stream of the program. While these events have been going on for years in nearly similar fashion, one thing will be different this year: Jony Ive, who has been part of the Apple design team for 30 years, will not play a role in the event as he has announced his departure a while ago.

Apple has launched a new iPhone every September since 2012.

A new Apple Watch could also debut at the fall shindig, but it's looking more and more like the new wearable will be a minor update, perhaps limited only to new ceramic and titanium models.

We are also expecting Apple to add wireless charging to their phones to keep up with their rivals Samsung and Hauwei which may also be able to charge the new AirPods 2.

A headlining new feature of the iPhone Pro models will be an enhanced rear triple lens camera system featuring an ultra-wide angle snapper.

This means we'll get upgraded iPhone XS, iPhone XR, and iPhone XS Max models, and while their names are not yet confirmed, everyone expects these to be part of the "iPhone 11" family. The company has been using early September events to introduce new iPhones for several years now, and the timing for this one lines up well with all of those past gatherings.

We'll know soon enough! The Apple logo is also done up in multiple colors - green, blue, yellow, red, and purple - which jibes with the rumored colors iPhone XR successor is expected to come in.
