Apple will reportedly unveil new ‘Pro’ branded iPhones next month alongside its largest MacBook Pro in recent years, combating intense global competition and looming US trade tariffs.
According to Bloomberg sources, the Californian giant will debut new Pro iPhones as a successor to its iPhone XS and XS Max.
The main differentiation will reportedly be a triple rear-camera set-up, for better resolution photographs and low-light capabilities.
New iPhones are also tipped to deploy more intelligent facial unlock, coupled with its A13 chipset and processor for augmented reality applications.
Apple’s September 10 unveiling event will reportedly also debut a new 10.2″ iPad, replacing its base-model 9.7″ version, plus a more affordable version of its HomePod smart speaker.
The HomePod smart speaker is tipped to release early 2020, taking on the likes of Amazon’s Alexa and Google’s Home ecosystem.
The news follows Apple’s recent holiday forecast downgrade, and lower-than-expected period sales, with commentators eagerly awaiting sales results of its 2019 stable amid intense competition.
