It is also expected to unveil a new version of its wireless AirPods earbuds with wireless charging and a wireless mat that will be able to charge several devices at once.

With the new launches, Apple is hoping to expand its market share in the increasingly competitive smart-phone space.

The sitemap clearly shows the names iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max - referring to the premium handsets Apple is expected to announce later. The iPhone 8, which the new lower-cost iPhone X-like model is expected to replace in the line up, starts at $699 or $799 depending on screen size. The dual camera system has a 12-megapixel wide lens and a 12-megapixel telephoto lens with improved true tone LED flash.

Rumours have been swirling around the web for weeks that three new devices will be released during the famous September keynote with a bigger smartphone and a cheaper all-screen call maker being unveiled alongside an upgraded iPhone X. The latter is essentially chip hardware optimized for artificial intelligence and machine learning applications, as well as augmented reality (AR).

The lowest-price iPhone is probably going to start at around $700, and the other models will come close to a $1,000 base price. Although Apple has not yet confirmed any of its new products it seems there could be plenty to be excited about.

The smaller OLED device will carry the iPhone XS moniker while the larger OLED device is the iPhone XS Max. The phone has a 12 megapixel camera and offers much of the same photo features as the Xs, including smart HDR. Now we can see a list of exactly which colours will be available at launch: black, white, red, yellow, blue and coral.

Numerous details announced Wednesday had already leaked before the event. It would be available in six colors as per the leaked code from Apple's website, which is more than what the earlier leaks suggested.

Rival Samsung Electronics Co Ltd has a few models that cost almost as much as Apple models, but the bulk of its line-up, like that of other phone makers, consists of cheaper models.

The iPhone Xs features a 5.8-inch Super Retina OLED display at 2,436 x 1,125 resolution with 2.7 million pixels and 458 pixels per inch.
