Apple has been on a tear over the past few years.

Last year’s new top-end iPhone, the iPhone X, was the device’s first major redesign in three years. Apple ditched the TouchID button in favor of Face ID technology and touted the device as the “future of mobile.” Since it hit stores Nov. 3, the iPhone X has been Apple’s best-selling device. That’s even though it’s the most expensive phone Apple’s ever sold. The 5.8-inch device starts at $999 in the US, $300 more than the 4.7-inch iPhone 8 and $200 more than the 5.5-inch iPhone 8 Plus.

Along with those changes, Apple may incorporate new build materials and colors, increase the processing speeds, boost the screen resolution and make tweaks to extend battery life.
It’s also expected to update itswith a bigger screen and introduce new tablets.
