Apple will launch at least three new iPhones on Tuesday at its new campus in Cupertino, California.

There has been much speculation about these upcoming iPhones. All signs point to Apple announcing the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus alongside a completely redesigned and more expensive iPhone X.

The pressure is on Apple, too. It's the 10th anniversary of the first iPhone, launched in 2007, and the company is expected to unveil some big updates to mark the occasion.

Wall Street analysts hope that the new iPhone X, which could cost over $1,000, will drive a "supercycle" of sales and propel Apple to the first trillion-dollar publicly traded company.

Apple rarely comments on upcoming products, but some uncovered software code related to the forthcoming iPhones suggests that many of the rumors are accurate.

Business Insider will cover everything Apple launches live, but in the meantime, here's what we're expecting from the new iPhones.

Apple is expected to launch three new iPhones: one that's redesigned, and two spec updates (dubbed the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus) to replace the current iPhone 7 and 7 Plus. While analysts have suggested names for the redesigned iPhone, like "iPhone Pro," code for the phone uncovered Saturday revealed its name will be "iPhone X." The rest of this story will focus entirely on the iPhone X.

The new iPhone X is the model that has received the most attention in the months leading up to Tuesday's announcement. It's expected to have an edge-to-edge, curved screen with much smaller bezels than the current iPhone 7. The screen uses a newer kind of display technology called OLED that promises to use less power and provide darker blacks.

Apple seemingly confirmed the iPhone X redesign with significantly smaller bezels in this image included in firmware that was mistakenly released earlier this year. The codename for the device? D22.

This bigger screen is expected to have a resolution of 1125x2436, according to Apple's code and a forecast from Ming-Chi Kuo of KGI Securities, the world's most accurate Apple analyst.

 

The iPhone X is expected to have a front camera with 3D sensing and modeling functions, allowing it to manipulate photos and videos for augmented-reality applications. The front-facing camera will be used for facial recognition, either to replace the Touch ID fingerprint sensor or to supplement it.

On Saturday, a leaked version of the iOS 11 software that powers the iPhone X revealed that the facial unlock feature would be called Face ID.

This feature was previously confirmed by other Apple code that referenced face unlocking and a so-called BiometricKit.

 

The rear camera will also have two rear lenses that are vertically oriented as opposed to horizontally.

With a new edge-to-edge design on the iPhone X, Apple is expected to eliminate the home button and build its functions into the screen.

It's unclear whether the fingerprint sensor will be built into the screen as well, or whether the Face ID feature will replace it.

But the iPhone X is expected to include other features that aren't in the public previews of iOS 11, like augmented-reality ones that let the camera change photos.

Apple is already integrating augmented-reality features into Clips, the fun camera app it released earlier this year.

One feature that leaked on Saturday is called Animojis — 3D emojis that Apple's code describes as "custom animated messages that use your voice and reflect your facial expressions."

You may not have to plug in your iPhone to charge it anymore. Apple is said to be adding wireless charging to the new iPhone models, though the rumored Apple Watch-style charger may be sold separately. Apple has also officially joined the Wireless Power Consortium, suggesting it's serious about the technology.
