Expectation from Apple’s annual launch event

Here is the complete list of products that one can expect from the upcoming Apple launch event held in the Steve jobs theatre.

Apple is getting ready to launch their 10th-anniversary iPhone AKA the iPhone X or Edition or 8. For the first time, Apple is using OLED technology instead of IPS LCD technology display. However, it’s not just the iPhone that will be launched instead we will also get additional add-ons as well.

Here is the list of devices expected from the event:

3 new iPhones:

According to leaks and rumours, the company is planning to launch three new iPhones. iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone Edition or iPhone X.

The iPhone 8: The device is expected to feature standard 4.7-inch display (IPS LCD) with Apple A11 six core chipset paired with 2 GB RAM and 32 GB, 64 GB,  128 GB and 256 GB storage options. The device will feature single camera (probably 12 MP shooter) with 4K video recording capability and optical image stabilization.

iPhone 8 Plus: The iPhone 8 Plus is touted to offer bigger 5.5-inch 1080p IPS LCD retina display paired with Apple A11 six core SoC with 2 GB RAM and 32 GB, 64 GB,  128 GB and 256 GB storage options. The device is expected to feature dual rear-camera setup with support for bokeh mode and 4K video recording capability.

iPhone X or Edition: iPhone X or Edition is expected to feature a OLED panel with very narrow bezels and a small cut out for the sensors and selfie camera on the top. The device will feature same Apple A11 chipset with 3 GB RAM instead of 2 GB and 128 GB or 256 GB of onboard flash storage. All three devices will feature iOS 11 out of the box. iOS 11 and Mac OS high sierra (stable and final version) will be made available to the general public via OTA update for free.

All three smartphones will feature new material of choice (glass instead of Aluminium). For the first time, Apple is also implementing wireless charging for the following phones. The iPhone X might ditch finger print scanner in favor of the 3D facial recognition algorithm, though there is no proper information about this feature, this feature seems to be more secure and easy to use compared to the finger print scanner.

According to the recent analysis, the shipment of iPhone X might be delayed for few weeks, due to unavailability of the OLED display panels.

Apple ARKit: In the Apple developers conference, Apple made an announcement regarding the Apple ARKit, which is going to bring the Augmented reality into he smartphone territory. The AR Kit will provide a great tool to the developers to create more and more content in the Augmented reality.

Apple Watch: The third iteration of Apple watch is also expected from the launch event. The upcoming Apple Watch is expected to work independently without needing a smartphone. The watch is expected to feature similar design language and built in 4G LTE capability.

Apple TV: Apple is investing a lot of cash on its TV platform, present generation Apple TV doesn’t support 4K video streaming. The next generation Apple TV is expected to feature powerful Apple A10X SoC, paired with 3 GB RAM (used in the iPad pro). The TV is expected to feature fully fledged gaming experience.

HomePod: This will be the Apple’s response to the Amazon Alexa speakers and Google Home smart speakers. The HomePod is expected to feature a powerful speaker with Bluetooth and WiFi capability. The device will offer virtual voice assistance, Siri. One can dictate the day to day task to the speaker directly by connecting it to the home WiFi.

Next generation Airpods: Apple’s Airpod concept is a huge hit in most of the markets. In fact, one in two wireless headsets sold is the Airpod. The 2nd generation Airpod is expected to feature better sound quality, and a tiny screen on the carry cum battery case to show the battery percentage and charging status.
