Apple’s 2019 event is soon approaching and we know what to expect. At least we think so. Apart from the 2019 iPhones, Apple might pack more punch than we can anticipate. Keeping up with its traditions, the iPhone maker will take the center stage on September 10th to announce a slew of devices, including the new iPhone 11 lineup.
Of course, Apple will announce the three newer iPhones with some new upgrades. The iPhone 11 Pro, the iPhone 11 Pro Max, and the iPhone 11 will replace the iPhone XS, XS Max, and XR, respectively. The fascinating upgrades include A13 bionic chip, which might knock out 2019’s Android phones, the triple cameras.
The newer iPhones will retain the design of iPhone X and will focus on specifications boosts and camera revamp. Though an under-display fingerprint sensor might be 2021 upgrade so 3D face unlock could be the only biometric authentication option available.
The back where things get interesting. The Internet has been circulating mock-ups of the forthcoming iPhones. Though the design is kind of hideous, we will be getting three cameras and one of them might be an ultra-wide camera, just like the 2019 Samsung and OnePlus phones. But the iPhone XR successor will only get 2 cameras, 1 extra camera compared to last year.
Alleged next iPhone case moldings show what we discussed in our story last week in terms of new cameras. 3 on the high end, 2 on the new XR. Plus all models apparently getting a square, at least based on this one mold floating around. https://t.co/BhAFTZZL6u pic.twitter.com/QlNJTsApzX

iPhone 11 Pro/11 Pro Max: A 5.8-inch OLED display on the iPhone 11 Pro and a 6.5-inch panel on iPhone 11 Pro Max.
iPhone 11: The 11R will have the same 6.1-inch LCD size and overall design as last year’s model with a few changes.
Apple Watch 5
Apple Watch 4 got a design-revamp so the Watch 5 will walk on the same path, with a bit fewer changes. Apple will upgrade the processor to an S5 chipset which is said to be faster. Some leaks also revealed that Apple is pondering new titanium and ceramic case options. One can expect new strap colors as well.
The trillion-dollar company is also working on Tile-esque Bluetooth tracking tag for months now. It could see an official launch on Tuesday’s event. Evidence surfaced in the form of Apple’s redesigned Find My App and the leaked code in iOS 13 which conspicuously explained how the feature works.
Apple has already piqued our software interests with iOS 13. But at the event, we might see release information for iOS 13, iPadOS, watchOS 6, tvOS, the HomePod, and macOS 10.15 Catalina. Apple is known to include surprises in every event so don’t miss that.
Apple could unveil new subscription-bases services, including its Apple Arcade game subscription and its own streaming service, Apple TV Plus. Apple TV Plus could cost $9.99 per month and Apple has been teasing a few shows through some trailers, including For All Mankind, The Morning Show, Dickinson, and the animated Snoopy in Space. In addition, Apple might announce some sort of combined bundle for access to its services (like what’s Disney is doing with ng with Disney+ / Hulu / ESPN+).
Apple might unveil a new MacBook Pro with 16 inches of screen real-estate. But no word on its launch. Maybe, this could be the surprise Apple wants us to be hooked on for. Other rumors point to Apple-made headphones, the return of the AirPower charging pad, the AR glasses, a cheaper HomePod, Noise-canceling AirPods. It could be any of these.
