Ultimately, while Apple has seen its iPhone sales decline in recent times - iPhone sales still account for a massive 48% of the company's sales, according to its Q3 financial release.

When is Apple going to announce the iPhone 11?

The new iPhone 11 models replacing iPhone XS series are likely to have the first-ever triple rear camera setup.

Apple's 2019 iPhone event begins at 10 a.m. PT / 1 p.m. ET.

Latest rumors regarding Apple's upcoming iPhones suggest that the A13 chips said to power the devices will be aided by an additional co-processor, code-named 'Rose/R1'.

It's expected Apple will unveil three new iPhone models within the next 24 hours: the entry-level iPhone 11R, and two variants of the iPhone 11 Pro.

But while those games only allowed players to play in teams of two, Capcom has announced a game that allowed four-man teams. We'll see how close it is to those games at Capcom's Tokyo Game Show panels set for September 12 to 15.

We're expecting three new iPhone 11 smartphones, plus, maybe, the Apple Watch 5 and Apple HomePod 2, along with a wildcard product - possibly a Global Positioning System tracker - and we're also expecting to learn when iOS 13 and iPadOS will become available to the public.

Hundreds of thousands of people will tune in to the live event to get a glimpse of the new phone.

As it does with every event, Apple will share the keynote both on its site, its YouTube page, and even in its Apple Keynotes video podcast cataloging the company's filmed announcements.

The phones also won't be able to switch to USB-C, according to Kuo's report, a copy of which was obtained by 9to5Mac. That report talked up a lot of features such as camera improvements, multi-angle Face ID and new colors, but to me, the biggest addition was the news that some new iPhone models would feature shatter-resistance technology. However, Apple is likely to deliver 5G handsets later in 2020, which will pick up iOS volumes slightly as it will have an edge over other vendors with a better understanding of 5G market conditions for a much more planned launch.

Commenting on the alleged product Jeff Pu, a tech analyst for GF Securities, told Nikkei: "The cheaper iPhone SE could serve as a sales momentum kicker the first half next year, if the new premium iPhones do not perform well in the coming months".
