IPhone XC color leak sees supposed SIM trays spill secrets

One way to do that is sell more phones at higher prices.

The culture-changing company behind the iPod, iPhone and iPad hit a historic milestone last month, becoming the first private-sector company to surpass $1 trillion in market value.

The other products, such as Macs and Mac Books and AirPods as well as the new iOS 12 will all be heard about in the Wednesday event at the Steve Jobs Theater, Cuppertino. The new laptop model will replace Apple's 12-inch MacBook model, which does not have a fingerprint scanner and starts at $1300, TF International Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo said in a note distributed Monday.

Apple is expected to launch a supersized version of the iPhone X called the iPhone XS Max with a 6.5-inch screen.

Besides the tongue-in-cheek illustration, there's also a leaked ad from China Telecom picturing a new iPhone with dual SIM cards and the text, "New iPhone coming soon, dual SIM support, I've been waiting for you".

Perhaps Apple will soon learn that YouTube is also a great place to stream live events and attract even more eyeballs.

The event will get underway at 10am local time in California, which for the sake of anyone in the United Kingdom means you can tune into the stream to watch at 6pm BST. At that retail price, the iPhone Xs will essentially replace the iPhone 8 Plus while iPhone Xs Max will act as successor to iPhone X in price segment alone. What are you hoping that Apple announces tomorrow above anything else? The same site also spotted the iPhone Xs listed on the Apple website for a brief period, and the screenshot shows availability pegged for September 21.

"Depending on the price point, the launch of the XC could also see Apple making serious moves in the mobile mid-tier as it hopes to regain ground from more competitively priced rivals". The iPhone XC may be the cheapest one in the line as it will sport an LCD screen unlike the other two that will feature OLED displays. Some had been concerned - Apple was very much testing the water with its iPhone X's $999 price point a year ago, its most expensive phone ever.

The 5.8 and 6.5-inch models may be called iPhone XS, indicating at mostly under-the-hood updates, with the larger model rumored to be differentiated with the "Max" moniker, instead of "Plus". Then again, having more screen real estate -even with a dumb notch at the top- wouldn't be a bad thing.
