Apple's average iPhone selling price hit a record of $652 in 2017, and the continuing sales of the iPhone X, as well as the new trio of notch-y handsets that will take its place, are expected to push it to the whopping $738 in the current fiscal year, which is a rather dreamy scenario for Apple, given that folks are keeping their handsets longer, while the breakneck pace of smartphone market growth is slowly abating. We already scooped the iPhone X (2018) and X Plus price and release date predictions, but when it comes to the "affordable" iPhone 9 (2018), or whatever it's called, the forecast is cloudier.New Apple iPhone 9 (2018) expected price rangeApple iPhone (2018) 64GBApple iPhone (2018) 256 GBPrice range predictions for the US$599 single SIM$699 dual SIM$749 single SIM$849 dual SIMWhere there is smoke, there could be fire, and Apple may indeed be changing its pricing structure for the expected 2018 trio of new iPhones.

Iphone announcement 2018
As September draws near, iPhone fans worldwide are getting more and more excited about what Apple is going to announce this year. The iPhone X design will be expanded upon with larger screen variants and — finally — a more accessible price option.That's right, there will be three new iPhones... or so the rumor goes. With screen sizes ranging from 5.8 inches to 6.5 inches, different color options, crazy camera modules, and who knows what else.So, the gist of it is this — the iPhone 9 (a.k.a. the LCD iPhone, the affordable iPhone, the 6.1-inch iPhone) will be the cheapest of the three... but might launch a bit later due to light leakage issues with its LCD display. Yikes! The good news is that the iPhone X (2018) and iPhone X Plus should be on time.But... what is "on time" exactly? And how much are they going to cost? Let's take a gander at the bits and pieces of information we have thus far and try to figure it out!Announcement — the 2018 Apple keynoteApple has … [Read more...] about When are the iPhone X (2018) and iPhone X Plus going to launch?

Apple is expected to launch three new iPhones in the second half of the year, and for the first time, all three of them are expected to come with the new notched design of the iPhone X and all three are expected to adopt the gesture navigation of the X. The three new phones should be officially announced in early September with sales starting by the end of September and while nobody knows the names of the upcoming models, let's call them the iPhone 9, iPhone X (2018) and iPhone 9 Plus for the sake of simplicity.What will be the differences between these models?Let's take a closer look at each one of them below.iPhone 9 - The most affordable of the three new iPhones will be the iPhone 9, a device with a 6.1-inch screen and the only one that will still use an LCD screen. This will also be the only new phone to come with a single rear camera and no support for portrait mode. All of those compromises are what will justify a rumored starting price of $700, as much as the current iPhone 8 … [Read more...] about Apple iPhone 9 (2018) expected prices
June 1, 2018: LCD version of iPhone (2018) might be delayed... but far more likely, market manipulation has started! Every year it's the same thing: Before a new iPhone is announced, rumors start to spread about yield rates and delays. This year, for the iPhone XI — or whatever Apple ends up calling it — those rumors are starting super early. Japan Display (JDI) and LG Display that are said to be provide LCD panels for the upcoming 2018 LCD iPhone are struggling to secure yields. An analyst has claimed that manufacturers are encountering light leakage problem while applying notch design on the LCD iPhone. Hence, the mass production of the smartphone is behind its usual schedule. "An analyst" doesn't really say much since, absent a name, we can't consider their trackrecord, if any. Given the general history, though, it's also very possible this is less a rumor and more yet another attempt to manipulate Apple stock. So, don't take it even with a grain of salt. Don't take it … [Read more...] about iPhone 9 (2018) rumors: Release date, specs, price, and features!
Rumors of a new iPhone SE compact phone have been circulating around for at least a hundred years, but there's been somewhat of an increase in the rate and intensity of these rumors lately. And you know: where there's smoke, there's fire – a saying that has proven to hold true more times than not when it comes to smartphone leaks.At this point, the rumor mill tends to agree that an iPhone SE 2, or iPhone SE (2018), is relatively likely to happen, and soon at that. Where the reports happen to be severely conflicting is exactly what this new iPhone SE will look like. The more conservative ones claim it'll just get a small specifications upgrade, along with a fully glass back panel to facilitate wireless charging. The original model had a mostly aluminum back – a design that cannot work with current wireless charging solutions. However, there have also been a few leaks depicting the new iPhone SE in a way more exciting way: with a modern, bezel-less design and Face ID module, … [Read more...] about New iPhone SE 2018 images reveal bezel-less design and Face ID
