"During that time, the smartphone market has gone from huge growth potential to achieving scale, and now the biggest competition for a new iPhone model is often old iPhone models as the audience needs to be convinced an upgrade is warranted".
Amid swirling speculation and a string of software leaks, what can we expect? If you wish Apple to take care of everything, then you can choose the right option. However, reports from analysts and USA media indicate the iPhone X will be in short supply after the launch. The new iPhone is also rumored to have wireless charging and facial recognition features too.
While that can be actually known only when we witness the event, these leaks are pretty interesting, and seem to have also made many Apple fans frustrating as they have spoiled the excitement. The interesting part is that it supposedly contained a lot of new details about the upcoming devices. Today, we will get our first look at the next generation smartphone - the iPhone X. But in the case of the iPhone X, Apple's most important product in years, Apple's own code ruined some of the surprise, like the name, the big screen, and some of the key features like FaceID.
For months, loyal iPhone users have been talking about the new Apple device, slated to be unveiled today. Apple will as per offer 64GB, 256GB and 512GB versions with this phone. Also, both the iPhone 8 and the iPhone 8 Plus will support wireless charging. The price of the flagship device is likely to go up with some analysts predicting a base price of around $1000. The first iPhone 8 orders are expected to ship September 22.
Tomorrow's Apple event will also likely reveal more details about the coming HomePod, an intelligent home speaker that's similar to the Amazon Echo or Google Home.
