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).

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
