Apple’s next iPhone event will be on September 12th

Apple sent invites today for its annual fall iPhone event where
it’s expected to announce multiple new iPhones and possibly a
new Apple Watch and an updated iPad Pro. It’ll take place on
September 12th in Cupertino, California. The invite features a
bronze circle, not unlike the new
Apple Park campus
that opened last year, without providing
much in the way of further hints.

So far, we’ve heard
there might be
three new iPhones, including an upgraded
iPhone X with a 5.8-inch OLED screen. There could also be a
cheaper version of the iPhone X with a 6.1-inch LCD screen and
another high-end device with a 6.5-inch OLED.

Other rumors indicate that the cheapest new iPhone might come
in a variety of unconventional colors that’ll pop. (I hope
that’s true!) All the phones could also include gesture
controls and Apple’s Face ID unlocking system. Meanwhile, 3D
Touch
might be removed
from at least one of the devices, which
would represent an incredible about-face after the company made
a huge deal about the feature during its debut in 2015.

Apple is also
reportedly planning
major redesigns for the MacBook Air and
Mac mini this fall, but it’s unclear whether those will debut
at the iPhone event. The new MacBook Air would be cheaper and
feature slimmer bezels and a Retina display. The Mac mini could
include a much-needed spec boost. We could also see a new iPad
Pro with Face ID and an Apple Watch with a bigger display. If
all these hardware rumors come to fruition, this would be one
of Apple’s biggest events in a while, though the company tends
to save Mac announcements for later in the fall.

Of course, The Verge will be live blogging and
covering the event, so be sure to come back here on September
12th for news and analysis. The event will start at 10AM local
time.
