Apple iPhone XS Photos Leak, Showcasing Gold Color

Apple recently announced that it would have a special event on 12 September to announce some new stuff.

If previous years are any indication, Apple's new iPhones could go on sale the following week, perhaps on September 21.

Later on Thursday, website 9to5Mac published photos of two new iPhones and a new Apple Watch.

There's only an outline of what appears to be Apple Park as seen from above in copper (could it be hinting at a new copper-colored iPhone?) and "Gather round" below it.

The release date is thought to be in late September, so you won't have to wait until November to buy this year's flagship iPhone, like we did with the iPhone X a year ago. All three devices will have facial recognition and edge-to-edge screens like the iPhone X, but the two premium models will have OLED screens, while the cheaper phone will use LCD technology, Bloomberg News has reported. Most of the other design elements look the same. True to the rumors, it looks like a gold version of the new iPhone will be coming out this fall along with a larger screen size version.

Alongside the standard iPhone we may also see a larger iPhone X Plus which might include a giant 6.5-inch display and a cheaper device that will bring lower specs at a reduced price.

The Series 4 model will allegedly boast slimmer bezels and feature an edge-to-edge display, along with featuring a new watch face that will depict more information than current models.

Nonetheless, if Apple does do away with the conventional button, millions more users will have to relearn the most basic UX of the iPhone (one that Steve Jobs frequently touted). That lines up with the naming scheme that Apple has used in the past, which added an "S" to model names that were in-between major generations and focused on internal changes.

Rumors also suggest this new iPhone will not come with 3D Touch.
