The new model would seem to fill a longstanding demand by Apple fans for a relatively cheap Mac laptop, but one that comes without the Touch Bar.
Apple has sold more than a billion iPhones since the first model was unveiled by late co-founder Steve Jobs in 2007. These are the names that nearly a month old rumours suggest.
The new computer will have a fingerprint reader but won't have Apple's controversial Touch Bar, according to the note seen by Business Insider. OnePlus said its next phone will have a fingerprint sensor built into the screen.
In its guidance for its fiscal 2018 fourth quarter (ending September 30), Apple is expecting a revenue between $60bn and 62bn while gross margin is predicted between 38 and 38.5 per cent. A few days later, the company sent out its first few tweet - accidentally leaking the iPhone 7 in the process, about an hour before the event livestream.
"Even at a time when rivals such as Samsung are having to push the envelope on developing new technology such as folding screens". It will be largely similar in design to the iPhone X, including the notch on the front.
Industry analysts expect the price of new iPhones to start from Dh3,200 and it could go beyond Dh4,500.
Anticipation is not almost as high this time around.
Apple had made its intentions clear that it wants to have a model at a lower price capture the large market there and the third model to be released this year might be it.
One of the things that we noted when we reviewed the iPhone X is that while the new devices support fast charging, they don't actually come with a fast charger. As well as that, leaks suggest another, larger version - one which may make $999 the "cheaper" option of the two. It would have an OLED display with richer colors, and Wall Street is targeting a price of $1,049 or $1,099 versus the current $999 base price for the iPhone X.
It is that time of the year again when excitement peaks around smartphones with most of the brands coming out with new launches and upgrades.
