Last-minute iPhone leaks pop-up before Apple's event

Both the bold new color options and the potential "Xc" moniker echo Apple's lower-cost iPhone 5c handset from 2013. It'll also come in gold, adding to the gray and silver versions from previous year.

Apple's other products category, including HomePod, AirPods, Apple TV, Apple Watch, Beats speakers, headphones and accessories, had sales worth $3.74bn in the third quarter, a jump from $2.74bn a year ago.

The new phones will be named XS Max, XS and Xr, according to coding on the company's website spotted by tech news blog ATH here earlier on Wednesday.

That fresher profile could help lure price-conscious Apple customers with three- and four-year-old phones into an upgrade, said Eddins.

It is clearly the Apple season, as the U.S. technology giant will announce its new products on Wednesday.

Despite the cost, over 42 percent of current iPhone owners in the United States are planning to upgrade to whatever Apple announces today.


Meanwhile, the iPhone Xr will have a 6.1-inch display, will come in 64GB and 256GB storage variants, and will be available in Black, White, Red, Yellow, Blue, and Coral.

Last year, Apple put the iPhone X on sale in early November, nearly two months after it was unveiled. Simply opening the app will start the live stream, giving viewers a much better experience than watching it on their iPhone, or on a small window on a computer.

The main thing that you should expect is new iPhones.

The new wearable has been predicted by many to be called the Apple Watch Series 4, and if current rumours are anything to go by, it's going to be the biggest update we've seen to the product line for a while.

While it is the market leader, the Apple Watch still doesn't sell in high enough quantities for Apple to break out individual unit sales like it does for Macs, iPads, and iPhones.

In the past, Apple has been a bit persnickety about which web browsers it would let access its Apple event live streams.
