Apple expected to launch three new iPhones in 2018

KitGuru Says: It looks like Apple has big plans for the iPhone this year. According to Bloomberg, the Cupertino, Calif. -based tech giant will release its largest iPhone model to date, an upgraded handset the same size as the current iPhone X and a less expensive version with some key features of the flagship device. The resolution, however, might be changed eventually but for sure the future iPhone will get closer to mini-iPad display while maintaining, at the same time, the level of details of the display of iPhone X. The big iPhone will also include Face ID to unlock the device, and authorize mobile payments. We should also expect the new A12 processors to be featured in, and there's a new rumour that Apple could integrate a dual SIM slot but take it with a grain of salt. (Gurman doesn't specifically mention that Apple will use the "iPhone X Plus" moniker.) It will also have stainless steel sides and maybe a new gold colour option. The cheaper model will replace the current Apple iPhone 8, which comes with a dated design as compared to other premium smartphones present in the market.

Apple is also planning to bring a cheaper variant of the iPhone X as well. It, too, will use OLED technology and could include a resolution of 2688 x 1242 (at least that's what Apple's now testing).

Munster predicts a supercycle - which he defines as upgrades by 10 percent or more of Apple's existing iPhone customers.

Former Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, who is courting more moderate and even conservative voters, won 9 percent. Senate in a special election in 1992, and she has since been re-elected to four full consecutive terms.

In 2017, Apple unveiled the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus - the latest iterations of past iPhone models - and the iPhone X, with a bezel-less front screen, facial recognition and wireless charging. Apparently, the company tried to introduce gold for iPhone X but ran into production problems. Still, Apple may ultimately decide not to proceed with the color. A final decision on whether to include the feature or wait for eSIM technology hasn't been made.

However, dual-SIM smartphones are certainly popular in Asia and also with road warriors who regularly flit between their home territory and different Asian countries.

A pair of images posted on MacX forums - since deleted - show what appears to be an iPhone X-shaped pane of glass. Despite the bigger screen, the body of the device is said to be similar to the size of the iPhone 8 Plus.
