And finally, we're probably going to get a refresher on the new operating system for the iPhones and iPads that Apple's been pushing onto the world for the last few years: iOS 12 will be brought to the fore again and we could see some refinements to the features. It'll also come in gold, adding to the gray and silver versions from previous year.

'This all-in approach will likely see the launch of an affordable specimen - touted as the iPhone XC - as well as a reboot to the iPhone X and a larger X model.

Last year, Apple put the iPhone X on sale in early November, nearly two months after it was unveiled. All of the new iPhones will include the iPhone X's new design, along with Face ID for unlocking the device. And there we were, thinking that those would be the names. Today, Bloomberg is reporting that the cheaper 6.1-inch LCD iPhone could be called the iPhone Xr - with the "r" likely standing for "regular".

As reported by Macrumors, analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has said that Apple's next new iPad, the iPad Pro 3 might ditch its proprietary Lightning connector and replace it with standard USB-C. Piper Jaffray cited a survey indicating that roughly two-thirds of iPhone owners, or over 500 million people, are using a model that's at least two years old.

About the only thing lacking of late has been Jobs' iconic "one more thing" zinger to end the spectacle - usually in the form of a surprise musical guest, product or both.

The most exciting aspect regarding the next-gen Apple Watch is that it will usher in the most significant redesign to the device since its inception. The Apple Watch saw more than 38 percent year-over-year growth, according to IDC, and a larger model could boost the device's prospects heading into the holiday season.

This week is a big one for fans of Apple smartphones, as the company will announce iPhones on Wednesday. The leak has also revealed the pricing of all the three iPhones. The flat white oval charges the iPhone, Apple Watch and AirPods at the same time without having to plug them in.

The iPhone X was the first Apple smartphone to get an edge-to-edge OLED display and no home button or fingerprint sensor. Even though the rose gold was what we could have gotten closer to as a color, it has been a long time since the iPhone 5C which came in a lot of colors from users to choose from.
