It's pretty much a foregone conclusion that Apple's next event will unveil the successors to the iPhone XR, XS and XS Max.

Two weeks ago, we speculated if Apple was dropping hints about the iPhone 11 in its latest beta of iOS13 — an image included in the update showed the Calendar app set at September 10, and past releases have used that exact method to “leak” the date of their iPhone events as well.

And well, it looks like our suspicions were right after all. Apple sent out invitations for an event yesterday (not to us, unfortunately – maybe next year!), and the date is listed as none other than…you guessed it, September 10.

It’s not Apple’s style to explicitly say what they’re planning to reveal, but it’s pretty much a foregone conclusion that the event — which will take place at the company’s Headquarters in Cupertino, California — will unveil the successors to the iPhone XR, XS and XS Max.

So what can we expect from this year’s offerings? It’s widely believed that the iPhone 11 will rock a triple camera system, which’ll (finally) put them on the same level as phones from other brands. The iPhone is also rumoured to feature Reverse Wireless Charging, which means that you can use the phone to charge other devices (or AirPods!).

Apart from that we might also see a new version of the Apple Watch, which has historically seen updates in September as well. In the same vein as the iOS leak the Watch OS 6 beta hinted at the return of the ceramic finish, along with a brand new titanium version as well.

If you’re looking for the new 16-inch Macbook or an update to the iPad Pro, however, you might have to wait a little longer. Apple typically doesn’t announce that line of products alongside the iPhone, but the September event is usually a good indicator that those are next in line.

We’ve said it before, but it’s worth saying again — if you’re planning on getting a new iPhone, this could be the worst possible time to get a new one. A refresh is definitely coming in less than two weeks, so just hold on till then.
