A new study of sales in the USA and Canada showed a downward trend in the demand for the iPhone over the last couple of years. Apple said at the time that some people wanted a relatively smaller smartphone when most phones were getting supersized. This will include an entry-level 6.1-inch LCD iPhone with all the key features of the iPhone X, a 5.8-inch iPhone X successor, and a 6.5-inchiPhone X Plus.
It's all about video, says Tim Bajarin, an analyst with Creative Strategies. It will be Apple's second phone with a crisper organic light-emitting diode, or OLED, screen. However, it still sold strongly and helped Apple gain share in a smartphone market that has nearly stopped growing. During the same period in the prior year, the company earned $1.67 earnings per share. equities research analysts anticipate that Apple Inc. will post 11.68 EPS for the current year. Not only this, it will also carry the design similar to that of the iPhone X. The phone will be having an OLED screen of 5.8 inches display.
These three new iPhones will keep the same bezel-less screen as the iPhone X, but will come in varying sizes and price ranges to appeal to more customers. The Home button and Touch ID will probably be replaced by gestures and Face ID, respectively. There is also a big chance that these three 2018 iPhones will not get Apple Pencil support as previously reported.
The cheapest iPhone release of the year will be priced lower because it will be making use of an LCD screen, compared to the OLED displays of the other two.
-The iPhone X is expected to be updated, with the same screen size, and new features, and potentially a new name like the XS.
Unfortunately, there's no word for MacBook users whether Apple will provide a replacement for that machine's terrible keyboard or a touchscreen, but that probably means that neither will happen. The high sales will also benefit the main supply partners such as Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC) and Foxconn.
Keeping with earlier rumors, Apple is expected to introduce dual SIM technology for the two larger phones in some regions, Bloomberg noted. The analyst claims that the cheaper 6.1-inch iPhone will be coming later than expected. Apple is facing growing rivalry outside of the US, especially in developing markets where many people prefer less expensive phones with larger screens.
And, according to reports, neither does Apple, because it's allegedly facing a 'naming conundrum' over how to christen its new products. Last year Apple had revealed that it was working on modular and expandable Mac Pro.
