The icon has the same gold tone that the circle on the "Gather round" invitation bears. Except, this time, it is on the upper third of the Apple corporate logo.

Inside the app, the same events that Apple has already previously released video for, including the 2018 WWDC, the March 2018 iPad event, and the September 2017 iPhone X release.

Apple's "Gather round" event is taking place at 1:00 p.m. Eastern Time on Sept. 12. Expected at the event are Apple's new iPhone lineup, likely consisting of two models with OLED screens measuring 6.5 inches and 5.8 inches, while a third is equipped with a 6.1-inch TFT LCD.

Other rumors claim that the Mac and iPad Pro may see updates as well.

Most sources now claim that all three will have the TrueDepth camera array and use Face ID, but the LCD model will be singled out as a cost-effective model while the OLED versions will have more premium pricing and specifications.

Foxconn will continue to be the main iPhone assembler this year, with it said to handle all 5.8-inch OLED units and 80 to 90 percent of the 6.5-inch OLED version, as well as 30 percent of LCD model orders. Pegatron is identified as taking 60 percent of the LCD orders and between 10 and 15 percent of the 6.5-inch OLED model orders, while Wistron makes up the remainder.

The 5.8-inch OLED model is said to be priced be around $800 to $900, with the 6.5-inch OLED "iPhone X Plus" priced between $900 to $1000. The LCD model is likely to be between $600 to $700, according to the supply chain as well.
