First Look at the New iPhone & Apple Watch Series 4

After months of rumors, Apple has confirmed that it will be holding an event on september 12, with many insiders speculating that the company will use the day to announce a slate of new products, including new iPhones, MacBooks, iPads and more.

If previous years are any indication, Apple's new iPhones could go on sale the following week, perhaps on September 21. Stuff we expect will include new iPhones and the Apple Watch Series 4. The iPad Pro is due for an update and rumors say Apple will replace the 10.5-inch tablet with an 11-inch model.

Apple has sent out press invitations to its annual iPhone media event.

Every year, around the holiday season, Apple blesses their consumers with a new iPhone.

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. It's also worth noting that Apple has retired the weird red dot on the Digital Crown, though there appears to be a (much less weird) red ring in its place.

A few hours after Apple's announcement, 9to5Mac, a technology news website, posted photographs of two gold iPhone models stacked on top each other, with a larger-screened model on the bottom. Although we have a single image to work with, it does confirm most all rumors that we've heard about the watch's design. New Apple Watches with larger screens are also said to be on the docket. The larger model will boast a 6.5-inch OLED screen - dwarfing the iPhone X's 5.8 inches and 5.5 inches for the iPhone 8 Plus, according to Bloomberg.

The Apple Watch isn't an iPhone-like revenue generator, but is part of the company's growing Other Products segment. Still, it's expected to be available in some eye-catching colors to entice consumers into buying a less expensive iPhone. It's rumored to come in new colors, too, but which colors those will be remains unknown. Both models resemble the current iPhone X.
