China Mobile says the iPhone XC will cost 5888

The latest version of WatchOS has some major changes and additions. Bloggers have been pretty active in discussing what to expect from the event. The expected nomenclature of the new iPhones will also revolve around the iPhone X-within a matter of a few hours we might have iPhone XS, iPhone XR and iPhone XS Max. That said, there's also a chance that the support for two SIMs will only come to one of the three devices and that could mean Apple might be limiting such a feature to its standard iPhone XS.

One of the more notable rumors is a new version of AirPod wireless headphones featuring new wireless chips and hands-free Siri activation. The new models will probably still work with existing accessories. The screen area will be larger thanks to a smaller frame.
