Apple announces 3 new iPhones (XS, XS Max and XR – the budget option)

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

The Money Show’s Bruce Whitfield interviewed tech reporter Aki Anastasiou.

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.

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.
