It’s time for some new iPhones.
Apple is set to reveal its iPhone lineup for 2018 at an event at its Cupertino, California, headquarters on Wednesday, Sept. 12. The event begins at 10 a.m. Pacific Time, and Apple will be live-streaming the keynote on its website and, for the first time, on Twitter. Mashable Tech Editor Pete Pachal and Senior Tech Correspondent Raymond Wong will be at the event, and you can follow their live updates right here.
While the devices Apple reveals on Wednesday will be new, they’ll be familiar — all rumors point to three new iPhones, all based on the iPhone X design, complete with edge-to-edge design, Face ID unlocking, and the so-called “notch.” Also expected: a new Apple Watch design with a slightly bigger screen, an upgraded version of AirPods, and possibly even refreshed iPads and a new entry-level laptop to replace the aging MacBook Air.
It bears reminding why the tech world pays so much attention to Apple’s annual iPhone event. No single tech product has more influence over consumer technology than the iPhone — witness the cavalcade of notch-brandishing Android phones over the past year — and Apple’s tight ecosystem ensures many of its legacy users benefit from its annual software updates. The mobile world is still Apple’s show.
We’ve got a full, detailed breakdown of what to expect at Wednesday’s event, and be sure to come back here — right here — for live commentary and perspectives from the Mashable Tech Team as it all unfolds.
