This could be the 6.1-inch iPhone launching tonight

MacRumors Steve Rossignol

Business Korea reports that, having already extended the investigation period twice, the Korean gov is "likely" to rule in favour of the public research university, which would see a number of Apple devices banned in the country.

Now, some new rumours have surfaced online claiming that the upcoming affordable will actually be called iPhone XC or iPhone XR. The event kicks off at 10:00 AM Pacific, or 1:00 PM Eastern, and if Apple does have a lot to talk about we may see the company just dig right into it.

Chief executive Tim Cook said the third-quarter results were driven by continued strong sales of iPhones, services and wearables. While similar in size to the iPhone 8 Plus, the Xs Max will employ a steel chassis opposed to aluminum.

Apple has sold more than a billion iPhones since the first model was unveiled by late co-founder Steve Jobs in 2007. Current Apple Watches have a heart-rate sensor, which can take occasional readings.

It is that time of the year again when excitement peaks around smartphones with most of the brands coming out with new launches and upgrades.

Last but not the least, Apple might also announce the next generation MacBooks running on 8th-generation processors. The affordable iPhone is said to come with a 6.1-inch LCD screen and boast of nearly the same design as the iPhone X. Just a day before the launch, on Tuesday, a picture of the alleged 6.1-inch iPhone leaks showing off the back cover design of the phone. A new gold colour will be available alongside last year's grey and silver. Mainly, we're looking forward to the highly anticipated iPhone Xs, iPhone Xs Max, and a 6.1-inch LCD iPhone. In the meantime, prolific concept maker ConceptsiPhone has shared a fanmade trailer for iPhone Xr, complete with the familiar design of the iPhone X, a varied selection of colors, and an LCD display. According to industry experts, it is likely to have aluminium edges instead of stainless steel.

Analysts are divided on the pricing, but since the $1,000 iPhone X from 2017 (roughly P64,500 in the Philippines, including taxes), Apple's rivals have also raised prices. Apple is also rumoured to add Retina Display to this year's MacBook Air.

Thomas Husson of Forrester Research is of the opinion that Apple masters the art and science of managing the lifecycle of its products. The average iPhone price increase will be important for the company that's seeing its smartphone unit growth stall.

When does the Apple event start?

The Apple iPhone launch event is less than 12 hours away and the excitement for this year's handset series is reaching new heights with the fans.

Apple introduced the Touch Bar in 2016, debuting it on its high-end MacBook Pro laptops.
