Apple’s hardware event has had us waiting for far too long
As the hours draw close, we can’t contain our excitement for Apple’s hardware event happening tomorrow. We have waited long enough for first glances at some of the most talked about Apple’s projects. But wait! Don’t get your hopes high as what you might be waiting for won’t even get launched tomorrow.
It is no surprise that the company is going to have two back-to-back events (the next one rumored to be scheduled for October). Apple is known for leaving blue’s clues (remember Steve?) on the internet making the audience curious about their ongoing ventures.
The event is scheduled to start at 6 pm (UK time zone) at Steve Jobs theater, Apple HQ in California.
We have gathered information from all our birds and here is what we know about it so far:

The iPhone launch
One thing that we have no doubts about is that the new iPhone is going to be the star of the event; yes, the iPhone launch is confirmed. The iPhones that are expected to be released are iPhone XS, XS Plus/Max, and XC/XR.
See! That’s what Apple does; we can’t even say what name the iPhones go by for sure. Apple’s cheaper iPhone, i.e., XS is the most awaited one of all. The cheaper iPhone is going to be introduced in Gold.
At first glance, it may be very hard to distinguish iPhone XS from X. It will have an identical stainless steel frame and look similar to iPhone X visually. The iPhone might also have an aluminum frame. The much-rumored 6.3-inch iPhone will also have iOS 12.
The next big thing lined up is the iOS 12 launch. The company announced that it would be launching an updated version of the Operating system and it looks like that Apple’s standing by its word.
Along with iOS 12, Apple is also going to introduce macOS Mojave. Sources say that the users will be able to download both the systems after a week or so (we still aren’t sure if it is true).
Yes, you read that right but please don’t curse us if the Apple does not announce anything about AirPower. It is the very first wireless charging pad that Apple announced almost a year ago. This pad can be used to charge three of Apple’s products (what else did you think? :p) i.e., iPhone, AirPods, and Apple watch. We are hoping against hope that Apple announces its launch this time.

We will also hear something new from the AirPods. Whether it will be a keeping case or a new model, we don’t know.
Apple watch 4
Collecting hints that Apple usually drops, if we got this one right then, we might get to see a new member of the Apple watch series as well this time. Apple released its last watch of the series this time last year. We are counting on a bigger screen, and a better design for Apple watch 4. Let’s be honest here; we are tired of the same design that the company has kept from the last three generations.
What not to expect
There are numerous products in the pipeline that the company will not be unveiling this month. Here are a few:
As much as we would like to hear about a new beat product, we are utterly dismayed that there won’t be anything coming from it. We assume that the company is only focusing AirPods on the music side for now.
Apple’s AR headset venture might take you by surprise because the company has not talked much about it. It is an ongoing project that is a long wait.

So, all eyes on Apple’s event which is only a few hours away. We do not guarantee that all of the things we mentioned will be either talked about or released for sure because it is Apple’s call at the end of the day.
We hope that the event goes well and we get to see exciting new products. And just so you know, you can also live stream the event on Twitter.
So what are you waiting for?
