Over the past few weeks, Google's upcoming product releases have become the focus of numerous leaks.

Whether it's the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3XL, or the tech giant's upcoming Pixelbooks, almost everything about these upcoming devices has already appeared online.

Another device getting people talking about Google's fall event is the Google Home Hub, which has been extensively leaked across various tech websites this week.

This week on the SyrupCast MobileSyrup features editor Igor Bonifacic, managing Patrick O'Rourke, telecom reporter Sameer Chhabra and freelance tech reporter Josh McConnell recap Apple's recent fall hardware event.

If you listened to last week's episode, you'd know that the team predicted what they expected to see at the annual keynote. Leaks indicated that the Apple had plans to add a larger display to the Series 4 Apple Watch. It turns out that the wearable's screen gained a substantial 30 percent, resulting in a shift that the team feels is a significant improvement to the Apple Watch.

The updated iPhone XS and XS Max, on the other hand, are more iterative and have the team considerably less thrilled, with the entry-level iPhone XR being the most compelling new announcement to come out of the event. The XR still includes the majority of the XS' and XS Max's most exciting features but includes a colourful body and a more affordable price tag.

As was mentioned last week, it seems Apple will likely hold an additional fall event focused on an updated MacBook Air, second-generation AirPods and a new iPad Pro.

This week on the SyrupCast MobileSyrup features editor Igor Bonifacic and managing editor Patrick O'Rourke, along with freelance tech reporter Josh McConnell and MacRumors tech reporter Joe Rossigno, discuss what they expect to see at Apple's upcoming September 12th fall hardware event.

As far as leaks go, we will almost certainly catch a glimpse of the rumoured iPhone XS and the iPhone XS Max. The team also expects to see the Apple Watch Series 4, a new version of Apple's smartwatch that's tipped to feature a larger display and smaller bezels.

Further, the team doesn't think that the new MacBook Air will debut at next week's event. A bold prediction is that Apple could hold an additional keynote in October like the company did back in 2016 to reveal a revamped MacBook Air and new version of the iPad Pro.
