Apple Watch Series 4 Front Panel Depicted in Alleged Leaked Image

With anticipation mounting ahead of Apple's imminent product announcements later today, Slashleaks has shared an image of an alleged front panel belonging to the upcoming Apple Watch Series 4, which a leak this morning revealed will come in 40mm and 44mm sizes. Although it's hard to verify from the image alone, we do expect the new model to feature a display that's 15 percent larger than the one on the Apple Watch Series 3, a change implemented through a reduction in the size of the bezels of the device. The larger display sizes will provide more room on the screen for apps and allow more space for watch faces. Apple is expected to introduce at least one new watch face with support for up to nine complications. The resolution of the new 40mm Apple Watch is still unknown, but data found within a beta version of watchOS 5 suggests the 44mm version will feature a resolution of 384x480, up from 312x390 in the current 42mm Apple Watch models. Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo believes all Series 4 models will feature rear case ceramic, and potentially come with electrocardiography (ECG/EKG) functionality. A leaked marketing image suggests the Apple Watch Series 4 will look similar to the Series 3, with no major design changes. As far as we know, that should ensure Apple Watch Series 4 models will continue to be compatible with existing Apple Watch bands. Apple's "Gather Round" event will kick off today at 10:00 a.m. Pacific Time, with Apple planning to live stream the product unveiling on its event website and through the Events app on the Apple TV.

Possible 'iPhone 8' SIM Tool Packaging is Consistent With Rumors of Narrow Bezels and Front Camera Notch

A new picture of an alleged packaging insert for the so-called iPhone 8's SIM-eject tool has been shared on Chinese microblogging service Sina Weibo. The image was then submitted to leak aggregator Slashleaks today. The insert includes a generic diagram of what is supposedly the iPhone 8. If legitimate, the smartphone's design is consistent with rumors, which suggest it'll be almost entirely screen on the front, beyond narrow, uniform bezels along the edges and a tiny notch for the front camera and sensors. It's almost August, when mass production of Apple's next iPhones would normally be underway, ahead of their usual September launch. However, recent reports suggest the iPhone 8 may be running several weeks behind. Some analysts believe the device may not begin shipping whatsoever until at least October.

Possible Leak Suggests Next iPhone SE or iPhone 7s Could Have Strengthened Ion-X Glass Display

A new photo depicting what could be the rear shell for the next-generation iPhone SE or "iPhone 7s" has surfaced on Chinese social network Sina Weibo. The photo was later submitted to leak aggregator Slashleaks. There's no way of telling whether this photo is real or not, but it appears to show a bump-less cutout for a single-lens camera with another cutout for what might be a vertically-aligned LED flash. The document in the photo suggests the iPhone, codenamed N79, could have a strengthened Ion-X glass display like the Apple Watch. If real, the paperwork likely belongs to one of Apple's contract manufacturing partners in Taiwan, such as Foxconn, Pegatron, or Wistron. There's not much else that can be gleaned from the photo, asides from what appears to be more of an iPhone 7-like design, which would be a shift away from an iPhone 5s design if this is indeed for the iPhone SE as Slashleaks suggests. This would be the first next-generation iPhone SE design rumor we've seen so far this year, so treat it with a healthy dose of skepticism. Last year, KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo said Apple is unlikely to release a new iPhone SE in the first half of 2017, suggesting a refresh won't occur before the end of June. If that timeline is accurate, Apple could be planning to announce the next iPhone SE alongside the tentatively named iPhone 7s, iPhone 7s Plus, and iPhone 8 in September. Or, it could wait until spring 2018, given the original iPhone SE launched in March 2016. At this point, it's too early to say. Apple doubled the iPhone SE's storage capacities
