    The rumor mill seems to be a little slower than previous years. Last year by this time we basically knew exactly what we were getting. This could imply that we aren’t in for a huge upgrade this year or any marquee feature changes. Or Apple has done an outstanding job at keeping the next devices a secret. We know (or have a strong assumption) that we are getting two iPhone X sizes but not much outside of that.

    What do we think we are getting next month and as X owners, do we think it’s worth the upgrade?

    In addition to the new iPhone models, a new iPad Air model is 'rumored' to be introduced.

    3 New iPhones, new Airpods, new charging mat, new iPads, new Macbook Air and possibly a new Mac Mini (Pro) and new Apple Watches too.

    iPhone, Apple Watches in September announcement and possibly the iPad and Watch to boot which would be nice. iPods, Charging Pad likely in October with the MacBook Air/Mac MIni (Pro), but they pad and pods could also go in September but thats if they have them ready. These days Apple has been announcing products long before launch in hopes of getting users to wait but honestly I needed stuff so I bought a charging pad.

    I’d love for them to announce a smaller iPad but I won’t hold my breath

    Hasn’t the Air line been dead for like a few years now?

    I am waiting for the upgraded iPad Pro to replace my 3 year old iPad Pro and probably for the MacBook refresh!

    I am sure that Apple wants to have a decent notebook in the $999 price range, and whether it's called "MacBook Air" or "MacBook" I think doesn't matter as much as the fact that the MacBook low end right now is muddled compared with the Pro models.

    As a current X owner I see no reason to upgrade. I've been planning on spending any upgrade related money on buying my first Watch with the next version of it. However, I'm on the iPhone Upgrade Program. So, the one thing that might get me to lock in another 24 months of payments to Apple would be if the new phone that is X sized (not the plus or the middle size with the supposed LCD screen) is cheaper per month for at least 128 or more storage. Right now I'm on the 64GB X for what like $50 a month on the Upgrade Program? Vs. the 7+ 128 was like $40 before that or something. Otherwise there would have to be some serious features showing up in the new ones. Performance is literally no issue with the Bionic chips for the stuff I'm doing on my phone so I see no reason to upgrade just to get the A12.

    Would be nice but nope, ain't happening. I just wish more apps would incorporate dark modes at least. That does help some.

    Apple made it clear what they would do to secret leakers. The threat must have paid off.

    I just read a rumor saying that the new phones may not have 3D Touch. Although I don’t use all the 3D Touch features, I did use it enough to not be too happy if the new phones don’t have it. Might be another reason I skip out this year lol.

    Most of the credible rumors suggest there will be three phones, and most of them suggest that one of them will be a cheaper, LCD, 6.1" model, and I believe it will be only that model (which I believe is likely the successor to the SE, despite the size) that will not have 3D Touch (just as the SE does not have it). I would bet that if there truly are two OLED models, they will have 3D Touch.

    That rumor I saw regarding that was about 2019 iPhones.

    At this point in time there are so many rumors floating around, I honestly don’t know who to believe. All these are based on what Apple has previously done in the past. For myself, it’s a wait and see situation and who knows, maybe Apple will have a surprise up their sleeve?

    From what I’ve read we shouldn’t expect any HomePod updates until 2019 but you never know.
