The next iPhone 11 is scheduled to take place on Tuesday, September 10, 2019, and with it, we will see Apple’s flagship products being unveiled. In a twist of fate, Apple will now be broadcasting the event live on Google-owned YouTube and this will be the first time in the company’s history, where it will do so.

As per the description on YouTube, Apple states, “Cupertino calling. Join us for an Apple special event live from the Steve Jobs Theater on September 10 at 10 a.m. PDT. Set a reminder and we'll send an update before the show.”

Apple is widely expected to launch three models under the iPhone 11 branding with its internal names said to be N104, which is the successor to the iPhone XR, D42 which is the follow-up to the iPhone XS and D43, which will succeed the iPhone XS Max. As of now, nothing is yet confirmed, but rumours suggest that Apple will be naming the handsets — iPhone 11R, iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro. This means that Apple will move away from the rather confusing Roman numerals and also ditch the Max moniker in favour of Pro.

The iPhone 11R will be the successor to the iPhone XR and we expect it to have a similar form-factor. The biggest change will be found on the rear as it will come with twin shooters as opposed to a single-lens. It will be powered by an Apple A13 SoC.

The iPhone 11 and 11 Pro will feature nearly identical specifications and they will now have three rear sensors. The Apple A13 chipset is expected to be featured here as well with the only visible difference being the screen size. The battery on the iPhone 11 is said to be improved as well and it will now come with a 3190mAh battery. The iPhone 11 Pro will feature a 6.5-inch display and will be kept alive by a 3500mAh battery.
