Apple has a habit of throwing in a few surprises at its launch events so expect plenty of other shiny new gadgets to be unveiled including a new Apple Watch.

The iPhone XR - which was also rumored to be named iPhone XC - is expected to be a rare budget option from Apple, using an LCD screen as opposed to a nicer, more expensive OLED screen. As per the listing, Apple iPhone Xs will come for a price starting at $899 (roughly Rs 65,400).

Both the iPhone XS, iPhone XS Plus and the iPhone XC are expected to be powered by the Apple-made A12 processor and are likely to come with 4GB RAM and at least 64GB internal storage.

The images, which allegedly depict SIM trays for the upcoming lower-cost handset, were shared on Twitter today by serial smartphone leaker Benjamin Geskin. Twelve months on, the answer to "will people spend that much on an iPhone?" is, according to sales figures, an emphatic "yes".

It could even make the iPad Pro a more tempting device as a laptop replacement.

Apple also has in the works a new iPad Pro model that will include the company's Face ID facial recognition feature, Kuo said.

That fresher profile could help lure price-conscious Apple customers with three- and four-year-old phones into an upgrade, said Eddins. The company's laptop lineup has had an uncharacteristically rough couple of years, with complaints about keyboards and other design issues. According to's Smartphone Upgrade Report 2018, about 8.6 million Australian adults have an iPhone and almost half of them will be keenly watching tomorrow's event to see what Apple has in store.
