Apple will likely reveal next iPhone on Sept. 12

Sept 01,2018
Apple said on Thursday that it would host an event on Sept. 12 at the Steve Jobs Theater at the company’s Cupertino, California, campus, where it is widely expected to unveil new iPhone models.

Analysts believe Apple plans to release three new smartphones this year, including one with a larger display than previous models. Analysts also expect Apple to release an iPhone with an edge-to-edge display similar to the iPhone X but using less-costly LCD screen technology.

Apple’s event invitation made heavy use of the color gold, fueling speculation on social media that the company plans to launch a gold-colored successor to the iPhone X, which is only available in silver and gray.

Documents filed with the U.S. Federal Communications Commission that were unsealed earlier this year showed Apple had sought approval for a gold version of its iPhone X, but it never released the phone with the color.

A few hours after Apple’s announcement, 9to5Mac, a technology news website, posted photographs of two gold iPhone models stacked on top each other, with a larger-screened model on the bottom. Both models resemble the current iPhone X.
