And now the names of Apple's new iPhones look to have leaked…

Sunday, 10 Sep, 2017

The launch event will be held at the Steve Jobs Theatre inside Apple's new campus in Cupertino.

The final version of iOS 11 is also expected to deliver Person-to-Person payments to the company's Apple Pay platform. iPhone users will now be able to send payments to friends within the Messages app.

Well, iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and the mysteriously-titled iPhone X.

The nearly bezel-less 5.8 inch iPhone X has been shown to have a central "notch" containing the camera, 3D sensors and earpiece. It may be recalled that these were touted as the core new features of the iOS 11 at the developer conference earlier this year.

Others speculate that the back of the new handset will be glass and will offer wireless charging. It appears the front camera, speaker and sensors will be placed at the top of the display. Apple might bid adieu to fingerprint scanner this time. The other two variants will be the 256GB variant for Dollars 1099 and the 512GB variant for USD 1199. One of the features of the camera talked for the device is its feature of SmartCam and capability of recording 4K video at 60fps.

Apple has taken to spotlighting the growing stream of revenue from selling content and services to the hundreds of millions of people using its devices.

Face ID is one of the coolest security feature that you are going to see in the iPhone 8 device. iPhone has its own Touch ID feature which is now replacing with the Face ID. The phone is expected to come with a 3D sensing module, a component that has never been found on any iPhone before. Pulling it up prompts a return to the Home screen. However, today's leak along with some new iOS 11 features, also reveals some that will rollout exclusively on the anniversary edition iPhone. Now Apple is using this tech in its iOS for facial recognition. The new facial recognition technology appears to be called "Face ID". This is Apple's effort towards developing a rear-facing 3D laser system that would improve AR depth detection as well autofocus for photography.

The Apple TV is another device due for a modest update.

If Apple does name the 2 lesser priced models as iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 plus as the software codes suggest, it will mark a departure from following up the previous year's model with an "S" upgrade, indicating only internal changes. The new Copper Gold Colour may be called "Blush Gold". Traditionally, Apple rolls out the software update to its older users shortly after the launch of new iPhones.
