But don’t hold your breath for an iPhone that’s foldable, 5G capable or radically different from the models released last year. Here’s what Apple is likely to announce instead:
iPhone predictions: Apple will likely show off three new high-end iPhones — the iPhone 11 Pro, the iPhone 11 Pro Max and the iPhone 11 — replacing its XS, XS Max and XR models, respectively.
Rumored features: The new phones may include a faster processor, improved Face ID and a new camera system with three cameras on the back. The devices will likely look nearly identical to last year.
Software updates: Apple announced in June that iOS 13 will feature a dark mode to save on battery life, a way to silence unknown callers and a tool that allows you to swipe to type, rather than lifting your fingers.
Other hardware products: Apple may also integrate artificial intelligence capabilities and built-in sleep tracking into the Apple Watch. The rumor mill also suggests updates for MacBooks, iPads and Apple TV hardware.
What not to expect: A 5G iPhone. That will likely come in 2020.
