While there has not been any confirmation as of yet, the outlet reports that some leaked reports indicated that the new batch of iPhones will include one with 6.5-inch display.
A year removed from last year's 10th anniversary celebration-the first to be held at Steve Jobs Theater on the company's new campus-look for Apple to get back to basics.
Until now, internal iPhone storage maxed out at 256GB.

However, in a nod to the China market, where many users have more than one phone number and electronic sim cards are not allowed, Apple has introduced a dual-sim card tray for the new iPhone XS.
