Another leak sheds light on the Apple Watch Series 4's display resolution, which is getting a healthy bump.

Apple is set to launch a new generation of iPhone models at an event in Steve Jobs Theater on September 12.

Kuo expects both Apple Watch models to have a display that's about 15 percent larger than previous editions of the device.

Apart from details on the Apple Watch Series 4, 9to5Mac also reportedly separately that the biggest iPhone among the three expected iPhones will be called iPhone Xs Max, suggesting Apple is ditching the "Plus" moniker.

The ICC was established by the Rome Statute in 2002, but the USA did not ratify it as President George W Bush opposed the body. War crimes allegations in Afghanistan include those allegedly committed by the Central Intelligence Agency and US forces.

Ahead of Apple's annual event next week that will include a showcase of new products like iPhones, watches and more, a new patent for Apple Watch has been found that's leading to speculation Apple is working on bringing an always-on mode to its popular wearable. The pictures posted on SlashLeaks depict a display of 1.3 inches, which is even smaller than the Series 3 models. Where the Apple Watch 4 is able to display the wearer's schedule, current temperature, UV levels, the clock, as well as other miscellaneous information, the older Apple Watch had to make do with separating some of the information behind menus. That conflicts with the 1.3-inch display size of the sketched-out wearable.

Also, the frames of the screen were reduced to a point where Apple Watch Series 4 might become the first full-screen display in the world of smartwatches, at least according to 9to5Mac rumours. Rambo says Apple will achieve the higher resolution by reducing the bezels and making the screen larger. This new device will probably feature a higher PPI, which also contributes to the higher resolution. As per a report by GSMArena, people have been left wondering as to why Apple has refrained from adding this simple but useful feature.

As Apple is leading the wearable smartwatches ranks, Apple Watch Series 4 smartwatch has the hard task of improving the good results of its predecessors. The new phones featured a new gold finish, and the leaked photos confirmed rumors that two new size options were in the works. Last week, 9to5Mac reported that some watch faces will be able to show a total of nine complications.
