Invites have just been sent out to the world's media with the major keynote event taking place on Wednesday, September 12. It's unclear what that image may be referencing, but it does resemble Apple Park's circular shape.

The 2018 event is also taking place live from the headquarters in Cupertino with proceedings expected to get underway at around 6pm BST.

The first looks set to be reboot of last year's iPhone X and will likely feature a faster processor, improved camera and more internal memory with some rumours suggesting as much as 512GB of storage will be available. The 6.5-inch model would be the largest iPhone to date, and the 6.1-inch model would be a new, less-expensive model for customers to consider. The story appeared this afternoon, alongside a reported exclusive look at the next, larger, iPhone XS. In fact, the event, where the next iPhones are expected to be launched, will be again at the Steve Jobs theatre adjoining the new Apple Campus. Some of the new iPhones are expected to run at a cheaper price with fewer features, while others will boast the same expensive price tag as 2017's X model. New iPads in 11- and 12.9-inch sizes may also be on the docket for reveal, and both may forgo the home button for gesture controls and FaceID.

Apple is also working on two new iPad Pro models with slimmer bezels and facial recognition along with a new low-priced MacBook laptop and a Mac mini desktop geared toward professionals, Bloomberg News has reported. From an Apple Watch with more screen real estate to the debut of the long-awaited AirPower Mat facilitating wireless charging, the California company may drop some non-iPhone surprises.

One thing we do know is there's not long to wait.
