A year ago reports believed that we'll see an iPhone Pro, but these never materialized. So Apple's phone events are more relevant than ever before to Windows users.

If you are in desperate need of an iPhone upgrade now is a very good time. We will know tomorrow for sure. This goes against previous rumors that the largest iPhone would carry the "Max" moniker instead of plus, so take that as you will. Or at least according to the prices being shown here, with 5,888 RMB ($860) for the iPhone XC, 7,388 RMB ($1,080) for the iPhone XS, and 8,388 RMB ($1,230) for the iPhone XS Plus.

By now its common knowledge that Apple will be launching three new iPhones this year even though the brand themselves haven't officially confirmed the same. The report says that Apple "has considered" calling that one the "iPhone XR".

According to a report from Bloomberg, Apple is aiming to launch AirPower in September, which means there's a chance the release date will be unveiled on September 12. It's got a nice ring to it, especially as the iPhone X's likely successor should be named the iPhone Xs. In reality, bigger iPhone models cost Apple more to manufacture than its smaller models.

The entry-level iPhone will reportedly have a 6.1-inch LCD screen and come in different colors. The name for this one is even harder to predict. Three of them are shown on pictures of dummies of the upcoming iPhone XC on Slashleaks. It is rumoured to feature brightly coloured casing a bit like the cheap and cheerful iPhone 5C. In terms of specifications, the upcoming iPhone Xs and iPhone Xs Max will include 4GB of RAM, A12 chip under the hood, and for the first time, support for dual SIM in the larger model. It would sport a 6.1-inch screen and feature a glass and aluminium design. But then this name may create another issue.

These model names are a bit more in line with Apple's traditional naming conventions when compared to previously-reported potential names for the phones, including the odd "iPhone XS Max" and the "iPhone Xr".

Issues manufacturing the LCDs for the low-priced iPhone may very well cause problems with supply at launch, but pricing could also create shortages.
