At 7:00 pm (South Africa time) Apple will unveil three new iPhone models.
The event will be streamed live on Twitter.
Apple uncharacteristically – or perhaps by accident – revealed the names of the new models on their website ahead of the event:
iPhone XS (an upgraded "S" version of the 2017 iPhone X)
iPhone XS Max (the "Plus" version of the iPhone XS, but with a bigger screen)
- iPhone XR — a budget option
Anastasiou discussed the big announcement and the hype around it.
Listen to the interview in the audio below (and/or scroll down for quotes from it).
Apart from the phones, there’ll be new Apple watches… Consumers love these devices…— Aki Anastasiou
Apple’s going to do away with the home button… It’s quite a big step…— Aki Anastasiou
They’re releasing their latest operating system as well.— Aki Anastasiou
South African sales of the iPhone have been steadily increasing… I wouldn’t be surprised if we see these new devices in South Africa by mid-October.— Aki Anastasiou
