IPhone XC: New leak points at Apple's entry-level phone

Share

A leak reveals that the names for the new iPhones coming out 2018 are the iPhone XS, iPhone XS Plus, and iPhone XC, which makes much more sense compared to previous rumors.

According to reports, Apple is shifting its focus to iPhones with bigger screens to get more profit. According to his sources, the 6.5-inch would be called iPhone XS Max, and the base model 6.1-inch LCD iPhone would be known as iPhone Xr.

The report suggests that users with smartphone screens that are 6 inches or bigger use twice as many apps as those people with 5.5-inch displays, are twice as likely to watch regular videos, and are 62 percent more likely to play games. The iPhone 9 will be the only iPhone to come with LCD display this year, while the other two will have OLED displays on board.

An image allegedly taken during a presentation by China Mobile has claimed the models will be called the iPhone XS, iPhone XS Plus and iPhone XC. Apple is also expected to launch a new series of MacBooks and a new Apple Watch. Like last year, Apple is not expected to include Touch ID on this year's iPhones as well. Last year, Apple took the wraps off the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus at a Sept. 12 event, with pre-orders for those new phones starting that Friday, Sept. 15. The "S" name would be a return to form for Apple, which has a history of adding the letter "S" to iPhone models with updated components, new features and no major changes to the exterior design. Reports say that the dual sim version of the iPhone XS will be available only after 21st September.

But Musk also said this isn't really a priority, and he also dismissed the concept of a flying vehicle as impractical. Later Musk says he doesn't notice any effect from the joint, which he claims he rarely smokes.

The basic iPhone XS is expected to be an update X with a OLED 5.8-inch screen.

Turns out, Apple isn't going to be that simple with the name. Apple will also unveil a cheaper 6.1 inch LCD iPhone this year. But they have naturally ramped up more recently, considering Apple will announce the new trio of devices this Wednesday, 12 September.

Loup Ventures analyst Gene Munster said he does not expect Apple to be "materially impacted" by the pressure imposed by the administration, adding Apple is in "good standing" with the White House after it said earlier this year it would invest $350 billion in the USA over the next five years. We may also see edge-to-edge displays, much like the design of the iPhone X.
