Apple is always anxious about its suppliers leaking images and parts for its upcoming products, but in recent years, numerous most critical leaks have come from within.

9to5Mac also spoiled a lot of Apple's surprises past year, thanks to details found in a then-nonpublic version of Apple's iOS software that was leaked on Reddit and directly to some Apple blogs. Since the event starts at 10AM local time, which means roughly 10:30PM IST, we'll keep you updated about all that will happen. Other possible new releases at the event, per BI: new models of the Apple Watch, iPad Pro, and AirPods.

One device is noticeably bigger than the other, adding credence to rumours Apple is planning to bring a larger iPhone X to the table. There are also rumors that Google is planning to announce a new Pixel phone at an October 9 event, sources told Bloomberg.

Pope ‘refuses to deny’ explosive accusations that he ‘COVERED UP’ sex abuse
Among other things, McCarrick has been accused of sexual abuse of seminarians and priests when he was a bishop in New Jersey. He said on Saturday that the corruption and cover-up of abuse amounted to human excrement, according to victims.

Such a major design change could shock users (a lot of them, since 70% of all new iPhone buyers will reportedly upgrade over the next year). The base model will come with a 5.8-inch screen, while the top-end model will boast off a massive 6.5-inch screen, the report claims.

Those two OLED iPhones can be seen in the image shared by 9to5Mac and highlight the size differences between them.

This year is expected to be an "S year", which fits with the purported leaked name "iPhone XS". And it's these two models that look set to be called iPhone XS.

They also recommended that the matter be referred to the International Criminal Court or another special tribunal. Contacted by phone, Myanmar military spokesman Major General Tun Tun Nyi said he could not immediately comment.

It's the most important day of the year for Apple, because the iPhone accounts for about two-thirds of its revenue. There will be a successor to the iPhone X and a bigger version of that too. On the camera front, the 6.5-inch iPhone will also come with dual 12-megapixel back cameras.

The new line will include a cheaper iPhone aimed at more budget-conscious customers, according to the report. Each time Apple has unveiled a new Apple Watch model, it has done so alongside a new iPhone, while Mac and iPad updates are sometimes unveiled separately.
