Apple iPhone is among the hottest items on the market. The Cupertino company sold hundreds of millions of iPhone units every year. Last year, Apple debuted three iPhone models, including iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, and iPhone X after months of endless rumors and leaks.
The X is the most expensive iPhone model Apple has ever released to the public as it costs $999 for the model with 64GB of internal storage. The iPhone X comes with a lot of new things that set it apart from its previous models on the market, like a new curved OLED display, Face ID, and a glass-back design.
In reality, Apple saw a slow iPhone X sales performance during its first weeks of availability. However, things have changed so much since then. Apple claims that the iPhone X is the most popular iPhone model on the market. During the first quarter of the year, the Cupertino firm shipped more than 16 million iPhone X units.
Apple is expected to release the successors of the iPhone X, iPhone 8, and iPhone 8 Plus this year. Rumors claim that Apple will debut three iPhone models at its September event, one of which includes an affordable iPhone model.
Apple has been rumored to launch a cheaper iPhone model. Last year, Apple launched its iPhone SE in emerging markets. To the surprise, the SE received millions of registrations in China and India. Sources say that the success of the SE will pave the way for a possible release of a cheaper iPhone model this year.
According to sources, the cheaper iPhone model will sport a 6.1 display, but it will come with an LCD panel to keep the price lower. The upcoming device will still feature wireless charging and Face ID. However, the device will have the first generation Face ID only. For some background, Face ID is Apple’s new security measure that lets you unlock your phone with a simple glance.
Sources say that Apple has been working on the second-gen Face ID for months. The new Face ID will be exclusive to iPhone X Plus this year. Besides, the iPhone X Plus will feature an in-display fingerprint scanner at launch.
According to the latest reports, 2018 iPhone models will be available for pre-orders on September 14. This adds up to what we heard in previous rumors that new iPhone models will make their debut on September 12. Last year, all three iPhone models were debuted on the same day.
Sources say that two new iPhone models will see a rollout in September. However, the 6.1 inch iPhone release will be pushed back to October. Last year, Apple delayed the release of the iPhone X until November due to supply issues. Apple was struggling to manufacture components for its iPhone models.
According to the latest sources, Apple’s 2018 iPhone models will come with more efficient wireless charging. Last year, Apple included wireless charging with its iPhone models, allowing users to charge up their devices very quickly.
