The India availability is generally within a few weeks of the global launch date.

What to expect: iPhone 11 series, Apple Watch updates
The company is expected to announce its three new iPhone models. According to multiple reports, the D43 (internal name) would replace last year’s iPhone XS Max ₹ 107,099, the D42 (internal name) would replace the iPhone XS ₹ 85,000, and the N104 (internal name) would replace the highly-popular iPhone XR.
The new iPhone 11 models replacing iPhone XS series are likely to have the first-ever triple rear camera setup. Additionally, the Apple iPhone 11 will reportedly come with the same OLED displays used for Samsung’s Galaxy S10 ₹ 59,990 and Galaxy Note 10.
Noted Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has suggested that the upcoming iPhone models would be equipped with reverse wireless charging.
The iPhone-maker is also expected to put bigger batteries and some real internal upgrades in the new iPhones.
Additionally, the new iPhone line-up would come with a USB Type-C charger as well as a lightning to USB Type-C cable in the box.
Apple would do away with its original 5-watt charger and instead include a USB Type-C charger that would enable twice-as-fast iPhone charging times without ditching the lightning connector, MacRumors recently reported.
