Apple is organizing an event on 10 September, which is named 'By innovation only', during which they will present in the new iPhones. What Apple presents further is unknown, but this is what we expect.
The September event is organized annually, with the latest iPhones usually being presented. This year too, Apple is likely to present three new iPhone models. The new iPhones are the successors of the iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max and the iPhone XR.
New functionalities for iPhone
The new iPhones are probably almost identical in appearance to the current models, with the biggest difference being a matte glass back instead of a glossy one. In addition, the successor to the XR would get a dark green variant and the word "iPhone" would no longer be on the back of the phone. The new iPhone should also be more resistant to fall and impact damage and the watertightness should be improved.
The successors of the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max are expected to receive a triple camera. One of the cameras would be a wide-angle lens, which gives the user a wider range for photography. All three cameras take a photo at the same time, which could be optimized with software to become the best photo. The phones would also get an improved video function.
Unlike the successor to the XS and the XS Max, the successor to the XR will probably not have three, but two cameras. That is an improvement on the current XR, which has only one camera.
Furthermore, the new iPhones would get the same OLED screen that Samsung uses for the Galaxy S10 and Galaxy Note 10. The screens in the iPhone's will no longer use 3D touch that Apple introduced last year, but use Haptic Touch. in the iPhone XR. Haptic Touch has a functionality similar to the 3D touch and responds to a long-lasting touch of the screen instead of how hard the screen is pressed.
According to rumors, unlocking the iPhone is also easier, because the new iPhones have a better sensor for face recognition, which can recognize your face from multiple angles.
The new phones will have an improved processor, which will make them faster. 5G support seems unlikely, since Apple has announced it wants it to work in 2021, which is too late for the new range of iPhones.
Earlier this year there were rumors that the latest iPhones would also support Apple Pencil, but this rumor remains unclear.
Although new iPads are often presented at a separate event, one month after the iPhones, it is unclear whether such an event will also take place this year. The new iPads may therefore already be presented at the event in September.
The new iPad Pro is expected to have a triple camera, just like the new iPhone's. The new iPad Pro would also get better processors, making it faster.
The new entry-level model of the iPad would have a different screen size, namely 10.2 inches. With that, Apple would say goodbye to models with a screen of 9.6 inches, as they have been made since the launch.
AirPods, Apple Watch and Apple HomePod
Updates for the AirPods, Apple Watch and Apple Home may also be announced at the September event.
New, more expensive AirPods may be presented that should be watertight and offer noise canceling. Charging AirPods should also be possible with the new iPhone by placing them in the case on the back of the iPhone.
For the Apple Watch, changes in software are expected in particular. We may also receive a titanium and ceramic version, for which instructions were found in the software earlier this year.
Apple would continue to work on a cheaper version of Apple HomePod, the company's home assistant.
MacBook Pro and Mac Pro
Earlier there were rumors that Apple is working on a new MacBook Pro, which if there were no setbacks at the Apple event in September would be presented. Reportedly, the new model gets a 16-inch screen instead of the usual 15-inch. The edges around the screen would become narrower, so the new MacBook Pro would have similar dimensions to the latest version.
Apple may also announce the improved Mac Pro, which, among other things, will get an improved screen, but this also applies to the iPads and the MacBook, which can also be presented during an event in October.
Given the course of previous years, software updates are expected a few days after the event. As in previous years, the iPhones will probably go on sale a few weeks after the event.
The event will be held on Tuesday 10 September at 7:00 pm Dutch time and can be followed online via a stream on the Apple website.
