Unfortunately, the sheen has been taken off the event somewhat due to a series of leaks that have come out ahead of time, reported on by a number of credible tech outlets.
Does the iPhone XR have a new display?
The new watch has an ECG sensor to detect the wearer's heart rhythm as well as heart rate. And before you think that it's some type of novelty device... it's actually FDA approved. While its removal can be seen as penny pinching (and with Apple you never know), the actual use that adapter got is of suspect, considering most people just use the bundled EarPods or possibly get the AirPods.
Apple also showed off an upgrade to its 3-year-old smartwatch. It boasts the same set of features found in other iPhone X models.
iPad may also get some attention, with two new and improved models possibly on the schedule.
Pre-orders will open on Friday, September 21st with availability on September 28th.

Liberian President George Weah makes football comeback aged 51

Aaron Rodgers, Packers taking knee injury 'day by day'
Barring any setbacks throughout the week, it's hard to imagine a scenario in which Rodgers doesn't get the start on Sunday. There were a couple throws in which Rodgers said he got a "jolt" of pain after putting weight on his left leg.
The new iPhone comes with a massive internal storage of 512 GB (can store upto 2,00,000 photos). Supposedly the Xs and Xs Max will be the higher-end OLED display phones, while the Xr will offer a more affordable option with an LCD display.
The iPhone Xr model will be available in white, black, blue, yellow, coral and red colors. The GPU is up to 50% faster than the GPU in the A11 Bionic processor in the iPhone X. The A12 Bionic chip can handle up to 5 trillion operations per second, compared to the 600 billion for the iPhone X. It has a traditional, lower-quality screen and an aluminum body; it's physically smaller than the iPhone 8 Plus but has a bigger screen. We've been running the beta for a while, and it's been surprisingly stable.
Apple announced that it is gearing up to release a revamped version of its desktop operating system named MacOs Mojave slated for release on September 24th. If not, there are several differences that are worth taking into consideration.
But the reaction so far isn't as heated as it was when Apple announced it was doing away with the headphone jack back in 2017. With the introduction of iPhones ditching the Apple-made feature of 3D Touch, it could spell the death of one of Apple's most promising features, even if no one really uses it.
In any case, the new products have garnered a lot of excitement.
