Interestingly, for the first time, Apple is also asking people to "join to watch the Apple Event live on Twitter" in a promotional tweet. However, those might not be the only thing one needs to look forward to at the event today. The "butterfly" keyboard Apple has used in its recent notebook computers has suffered from reliability complaints.
This is probably the most obvious thing on the list. In the past, Apple has set the trend for the entire mobile industry, and this year doesn't seem to be any different.
It is already tomorrow the tech giant Apple will hold its annual event to present the new iPhones. Which means that September's event is definitely not going to be all about the iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max (or whatever its called), and the 6.1-inch iPhone with an LCD display. From iPhone Xr images in the wild, to live images of the iPhone Xs, to case covers of the OLED models, have been leaked on the Web.
According to leaks and investor report from former KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, the new iPhones will start at $699 in the US. With more room for display, the Apple Watch Series 4 will accommodate up to eight complications on its watch face. We'd know for sure once the devices are launched.
Next up on the list is the new iPad Pro.

Across the Southeast, people were urged to put together emergency supply kits, prepare their homes and research evacuation routes. Hurricane Hazel came ashore at the South Carolina-North Carolina state line with winds of 130 miles per hour (209 kph) in 1954.
THE NEXT-GEN iPad Pro could be the first iDevice to use a non-proprietary Apple connection.
Apple's other products category, including HomePod, AirPods, Apple TV, Apple Watch, Beats speakers, headphones and accessories, had sales worth $3.74bn in the third quarter, a jump from $2.74bn a year ago.
Apple also is expected to release an iPhone with minor updates to last year's Dollars 1,000 model and another version made of cheaper materials, including a 6.1-inch LCD screen, an AP report said. The new headphone will compete with the likes of Bose and Sennheiser, and will be sold under Apple's brand along with Beats headphones. Apple Watch Series 4 is also expected to feature an EKG functionality for better heart-rate monitoring. Intriguingly, Kuo notes that this may feature Touch ID without the Touch Bar.
The devices will be launched at an event at Apple's Cupertino, California, headquarters (10.30 pm IST). There's not much known about the AR devices except from the fact that Apple might be working on one. It also has a small share of other Asian markets with huge potential, accounting for 5% of sales in Vietnam, 8% in Thailand and just 1% in Indonesia in the past year, according to IDC. This year, as rumours say, Apple is expected to launch two high-end iPhones, while the third device will be an affordable one.
Last but not the least, Apple might also announce the next generation MacBooks running on 8th-generation processors.
