Apple CEO Tim Cook will take over the special Keynote event tomorrow (September 12) to finally unveil the latest flagship model of the coveted phone.

Alongside the grand iPhone reveal, Apple is also expected to a new LTE-enabled Apple Watch and if rumours are to be trusted, a new 4K ready Apple TV.

The launch will be the first of its kind to take place at the newly built Steve Jobs Theatre at Apple Park, at the company’s Cupertino headquarters in California.

How long will Keynote last?

Keynote is scheduled to last roughly two hours, kicking off at 10am PDT (6pm BST) before ending at noon PDT (8pm BST), according to the official calendar event.

Based purely on how the June 2017 Keynote occurred, the event could kick off with a short Apple product film, before Tim Cook takes over the stage.

Cook will then likely share a few words about what the company has been up to in the recent months, before moving into Apple’s product and software announcements.

The Apple CEO is expected to announce the new iPhone hallway through the show, around 10pm PDT (7pm BST).

Speculation has been rife ahead of Keynote, but the biggest excitement is building up of for the release of iPhone 8 or iPhone X as it could be called.

Evan Blass, who is notoriously known for his scoops and leaks on Apple’s secret devices, said that the next regeneration iPhone could be presented to the world as iPhone X – to commemorate the 10th anniversary of iPhone’s original launch.

The new model is rumoured to overhaul the design in a similar vein to Samsung, by introducing rounded glass edges and getting rid off the home screen button.

Other reports have suggested that the phone could catch up with its Android competitors by introducing wireless charging and facial recognition software to replace TouchID.

And according to tech developer Steven Troughton-Smith, Apple fans could be looking at the announcement of not one, but three new iPhone models.
