Apple is preparing a new model of the Apple Watch


After that it's a question of checking in at an Apple Store or an approved retailer to get your free handset fix.

That's according to the latest research from Counterpoint's Global Smartwatch Tracker which found that global smartwatch shipments grew 37% year on year in Q2 2018. A recent Bloomberg report citing insider sources claimed that there will be three new iPhone models launched, with all of them borrowing from the iPhone X design of full-screen plus notch. The source's information suggests that a new gold colour will be available for this (5.8-inch and 6.5-inch OLED ) iPhone XS design.

A new Apple Watch, the Series 4, is also expected to be shown at the event. This week, Apple began sending out press invites for its launch event on the 12th of September.

Earlier this year they predicted the screen on the new wearable would be 15 percent bigger than on previous models. The iPhone XS is rumored to be the name, and we'd be very surprised if it is something different.

The AirPower charging station and Apple Pay's will probably be announced for some European markets as well. Here's how to watch the Apple's September 12, 2018 event.
