Since the launch event is scheduled for September 12, we should get ready for all the official details, but don't expect any big surprises.

The online retailer is also offering a big discount on the iPhone 8 with that device being dropped in price by over £100 to £593.87.

If that pattern holds this year, then, you should be able to pre-order Apple's latest iPhones by the end of this week, most likely at midnight on Friday (Sept. 14).

The slide also lists the Chinese prices for the phones, which MacRumors extrapolates to $700 Dollars for the iPhone XC, $900 for the iPhone XS, and $1,015 for the iPhone XS Plus. The new phones landed in stores a week later on Friday, Sept. 22. Dual-SIM support and new color options may be available to select customers. Now you might be wondering if Apple is going with in-display fingerprint scanners.

An attendee uses a new iPhone X during a presentation for the media in Beijing on Oct 31, 2017. The iPhone XS is going to be an upgrade of the existing iPhone X and continue to retain the same 5.8-inch OLED display.

The headline announcement is expected to be a new iteration of the iPhone X with a 5.8in screen, possibly called "iPhone XS" according to reports.

"Don't expect massively disruptive new features but smart pricing repositioning around an enhanced iPhone X, enabling Apple to increase the overall average selling price of its smartphone lineup", said Forrester analyst Thomas Husson. There is also a photo that shows dual SIM slots.

A new Apple Watch, AirPods and Apple Mac are also expected to be announced at the event this week.

Historically, Apple has run a very tight ship when it comes to containing leaks, but things have changed slightly in more recent times. This year may be the same, though we haven't heard much about the smaller model. Besides, the renders leaked last week gave us a good look at the iPad Pro 12.9 (2018) from multiple angles.

You will be delighted to find out that Apple is hosting its Gather Round event this week and many tech fans are assuming the fall's products will be talked about. Now, we are hearing that Apple will likely announce two iPad Pro models on Wednesday, including an all-new 11-inch tablet and a refreshed version of existing 12.9-inch variant.
