Apple event 2018: Everything to know ahead of Wednesday's keynote

Apple's new iPhones Xs are being powered by a new generation of chips dubbed the A12 Bionic, which includes a 6-core CPU, a 4-core GPU and a dedicated neural engine.

This is the big news that fans have been eagerly awaiting, prompting a leak- and speculation-fest in the months leading up to the big announcement.

As well as new iPhones, Apple is also expected to reveal a new Apple Watch model and possibly some new versions of the iPad Pro and the Macbook Air.

This is a developing story.

In a first for Apple, the event will be streamed live on Twitter. The easiest way to watch is via the Apple website.

Apple's event starts at 10 a.m (1700 GMT) at the Steve Jobs Theater at its new circular headquarters building in Cupertino, California, named after the company's co-founder who wowed the world with the first iPhone in 2007.

The sequel to the last year's iPhone X is likely to be the iPhone XS with a 5.8-inch OLED screen and its price could be $899. While the iPhones will be the Wednesday's main attraction, Apple's growing smartwatch business will see stage time, too.

Thomas, who says he recently had heart surgery, has hit out at his daughter for cutting him out of her life since his mistake. This gesture was just one way that Meghan has tried to keep up with the few remaining friends she has left.

The iPhone XS and XS Max had been all but confirmed in an earlier leak but the iPhone XR is certainly new information.

Rumours have been swirling around the web for weeks that three new devices will be released during the famous September keynote with a bigger smartphone and a cheaper all-screen call maker being unveiled alongside an upgraded iPhone X. The company recently became the first public US company to hit a market value of $1 trillion and remains atop the Forbes list of most valuable brands.

Other analysts have slightly different prices-$699, $969 and $1,069-but all are banking on Apple to raise prices again and deliver more revenue in the year ahead.

Those smartphones, he said, would also be pricier, helping Apple make more money.

The iPhone XR will have a 6.1-inch LCD screen and be available in 64GB and 256GB storage options. There's really no point for Apple to continue to limit the outlets it streams to. Last year's iPhone X - pronounced "ten" - represented a major redesign.
