First and foremost, it looks like Apple will be naming the three iPhones being launched today as iPhone X, iPhone 8, and iPhone 8 Plus.

Since it was announced, there has been huge hype surrounding Apple's 4K TV. Speculations over a next generation Apple watch has been floating around the web for some time, claiming that the new Apple Watch will have significant improvements over its predecessors.

There's been some speculation that Apple's iPhone X will have a massive starting price of $1,000 - or a whopping $350 more than what iPhones usually start at. The smartphone is expected to have an OLED bezel-less screen, Face ID, vertical dual camera setup at the back, wireless charging support, AR features support, and much more. A better camera is a safe bet, too.

Others, including John Gruber, a blogger reputed for his Apple coverage, also say that the leak was from within the Cupertino, Calif. tech giant.

How does Apple's biggest fan feel about the $1,000 price? This feature is already available in the Galaxy S8, notes Qualcomm.

The trend reflects the increasing sophistication of smartphones, which have been evolving into status symbols akin to automobiles. "But about 15% of our customers are loyalists and always prefer the latest model, which they take up with the financing schemes", he said, on the condition of anonymity. "It's an extension of themselves, it's their entry into the world, it's their connection to their friends".

"Your greatest return on investment for any piece of technology is your phone", Munster said. This means that 92% of the people while selling their iPhone device will buy another iPhone to replace it.

But will Apple only have its rumored iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus ready for shipments in September, opting to begin iPhone X shipments later in the year?

"What I'm most interested with Apple Pay or any form of mobile payment is what will drive adoption and usage?" For perspective, Apple offered the iPhone 7 in a total of 29 markets at launch, and the iPhone 6s in 12 markets. And that made a lot of difference.

The iPhone went by the name of "Purple" and its development team sat in a room called the Purple Dorm. That runs counter to the usual tech trajectory in which the price of electronics, whether televisions or computers, falls over time.
