Speculation on newest iPhone models revealed

Apple shipped millions of iPhone X units despite sluggish demand

APPLE may be working on three new iPhone X spin-off models, including one that misses out on some big features.

Apple is again ruling the global smartphone sales chart with new reports indicating that contrary to what many believed, iPhone X, iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus sales have been over the top by dominating the global top-selling smartphone board in November 2017.

The replacements, which could arrive as early as this fall, may include an iPhone X Plus, created to offset concerns about screen size. However according to the numbers by market research firm Canalys, it has been estimated that Apple has managed to ship 29 million iPhone X units in Q4 2017. The iPhone X, among other models, captured about 20 percent of the total iPhone sales in the holiday quarter. Fortunately, brick and mortar stores plus online retailers might offer the iPhone X at a reduced price tag, so there might be a silver lining in all of this.

The additional controls are meant to appease iPhone owners outraged since Apple acknowledged last month that its recent software updates had been secretly slowing down older iPhones when their batteries weakened. The company is benefiting from steady iPhone sales, spurt in Services segment and a resurgence in Mac and iPad sales. They expect the weakness in iPhone X orders to remain weak through the first half of this year because "high-end smartphones are clearly hitting a plateau this year".

These two devices will be more expensive and prices for the handsets are likely to start at $999 like the existing iPhone at the moment.

Intel recommends PC users avoid their Spectre patch
The firm says the patches, which began rolling out recently, were also resulting in unpredictable system behaviour. And, hopefully, those left out in the cold by Intel should soon ( Intel promises!) have a fix coming their way.

An analyst says the new model's disappointing sales could lead to the phone being canceled - with production stopping as soon as this summer. Koshinski Asset Management Inc. now owns 47,605 shares of the iPhone maker's stock valued at $6,856,000 after acquiring an additional 4,679 shares in the last quarter. Maybe folks just couldn't afford the pricey phone considering a new survey that claims interest in the new iPhone has hit a historic low. That's even smaller than the bezels on the iPhone X. According to Japan Display, the Full Active LCD panels measure 6-inches diagonally and have a 1080 x 2160 Full HD+ resolution with an 18:9 aspect ratio.

A few days back KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo suggested that the upcoming LCD iPhone could be the first iPhone since 2015 to not feature their signature 3D Touch. Lastly, Kuo notes that Apple may start "new iPhone model certifications earlier" than it did previous year to prevent shipment delays.

The only reason behind Apple to acquire the LCD screens instead of OLED panel is to reduce the actual pricing of this upcoming iPhone.

According to the China Times, which cited sources, Apple is planning to use Japan Display's Full Active LCD technology.
