Every September, children return to school, and Apple invites a lot of journalists to a dark room, revealing the future of iPhones. It's the beginning of the global crazy dash to queue and secure a new Apple device with just a few modest upgrades. Time is now over us. Are you fascinated? Are you scared? Are you prepared to spend more money than you have ever used on a phone before?
This year's iPhone rumors point to a new series that represents a full court press on your wallet. Bloomberg says that Apple seems less interested in getting more people to buy iPhones than it does in raising the average price on iPhone. This means that the huge price increase we saw with the iPhone X release last year could fall into other new models. But it can also mean that edge-to-edge screen design and Face ID also come to lower iPhone models. It's going to be expensive, but illuminated.
What does it look like?
Based on unconfirmed reports, Apple will release three new iPhones this year. One would apparently contain the 5.8-inch OLED bezel-free screen with Face ID, stainless steel edges, and the same overall design as iPhone X, including the vertically oriented two-lens camera on the glass. Another will allegedly come with a 6.5-inch OLED screen-free display, which would be the biggest screen Apple ever put into an iPhone and Face ID, stainless steel edges, glass back and two cameras. Think of it as an iPhone X Plus, but probably with a different name. More about it in a second.
The third phone is perhaps the most interesting. It will obviously have a 6.1
What seems imminent is the end of the pelvis. The new full-screen design with Face ID has been a big hit with reviewers, notch and everything. Furthermore, moving all iPhone models to this new form factor makes app design and production easier and more efficient. Some leaks indicate that the screen of the 6.1-inch LCD will have a slightly larger edge than it would be on the OLED devices. But still. Large screens seem like the future of iPhones.
What will it be called?
This is someone's guess. Apple's iPhone naming system used to be quite simple. Since the iPhone 4 release, the company would release a completely redesigned device that would get a new number, such as iPhone 5. The next year, Apple would release a device with the same basic design but upgraded bowel and the company would only add one "S" to the name, like iPhone 5s. Begin with iPhone 6, a larger size devices got a "Plus" at the end of the name. That formula was broken on the iPhone's tenth anniversary last year when Apple released iPhone 8 with the very special iPhone X ("ten").
This year, if Apple releases three phones of different sizes, a further mess is getting up. Basically, nobody expects Apple to drop an iPhone 9 with an iPhone XI ("eleven") and iPhone XI Plus. However, many analysts have suggested that Apple will follow a version of its former "s" product cycle. This may mean that the new OLED devices will become iPhone Xs and iPhone Xs Plus. Perhaps, the new LCD device would be called iPhone 9, but it seems cluttered. Who knows, at the end of the day, Apple could throw the old number system out of the window and go with something like "the new iPhone." How to distinguish between the three sizes? The new iPhone Big, Medium and Small? Who knows.
What happens to your intestines?
The hot competition of super impressive smartphone nut is hot right now. Samsung recently launched Galaxy Note 9 with some extra-packed numbers, and based on rumors, the new iPhone series will compete with specifications like these. Imagine faster processor, more RAM, bigger batteries (for some models) and better monitors.
Several reports from the supply chain indicate that the new iPhones will include a new A12 processor, made by Apple's long-term Taiwanese Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC) supplier. These seven-nanometer chips will be significantly smaller than the 10-nanometer A11 processors currently in the iPhone X and iPhone 8 series. They will also seem to be 10 percent faster, according to reference tests uploaded to Geekbench back in June. Updated chip technology can also make the new iPhone devices use battery power more efficiently.
These references also indicate that the OLED iPhone devices come with 4GB of RAM, up from 3GB in iPhone X. Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has backed up this information and added that the OLED devices also come with an L-shaped two-cell battery similar to iPhone X, and thanks to its larger size, the larger 6.5-inch device will execute a 25 percent greater battery capacity than iPhone X, maybe as high as 3400mAh. The cheaper LCD will allegedly hold 3GB of RAM and a rectangular battery similar to what is in the iPhone 8 series.
What's one of the more exciting and intricate rumors about the new iPhone layout involves the big, beautiful displays. This also comes from Kuo, which says that the cheaper 6.1-inch LCD will use a cover glass sensor located at the top of the display instead of sensors embedded on the display itself. This would make the screen stronger (think: less likely to burst) as well as cheaper to produce. However, Apple can further reduce the cost of these new LCDs by not supporting 3D Touch, which would almost not be a tragedy. There is also a chance that Apple could put the newly released, more durable Corning Gorilla Glass 6 on all three new devices, but it may also be desirable thinking.
What about Touch ID?
Nice, what about Face ID?
If the above rumors are correct, all the new iPhones come with Face ID capabilities. This can make some enthusiasts nervous, since the TrueDepth cameras that make Face ID work caused some delays in iPhone X production last year. Apple has since invested nearly $ 1 billion to expand its business module for camera module and supply as it prepares new iPhones and possibly a new iPad with Face ID.
All that is said, do not expect big changes to face ID. Some analysts have predicted that Apple will contain a second-generation TrueDepth module that would make iPhone hack smaller, but that reputation has not really been verified. Given last year's iPhone X delays, it makes sense that Apple will play it safe with Face ID this year.
What about USB-C?
If you hope to connect a USB-C cable to the back of a new iPhone later this year, keep dreaming. A juicy reputation suggests that Apple will replace the proprietary Lightning port with the very fast and convenient USB C port on the new iPhones. This is almost impossible, just because Apple still makes truckloads of money by licensing its Lightning technology to third party accessory manufacturers. What seems highly possible is a proprietary reputation that Apple will trench its outdated USB-A-iPhone chargers and send this year's iPhones with a new USB-C -murstein that is capable of fast loading. The rumor first appeared with a picture from the Chinese social network Weibo, but got steam a few months ago when Apple began cutting prices for USB-C to Lightning cables in the Apple Store. By making this cable standard, Apple will also solve the annual curse that made it impossible to connect an iPhone to a new MacBook without buying the special USB-C for Lynch cable.
Should the Apple pencil finally work with the iPhone?
When can I buy it?
It is quite certain that Apple will announce the new iPhone at an event at the Steve Jobs Theater on September 12th. Sources from two German mobile operators have also reported that Pre-orders will start September 14, and actual sales will start September 21st. While none of these dates have been confirmed, they will fall in line with iPhone launches in the previous year.
That said, there is some reason to believe that the new iPhones will not send right away. IPhone X, after all, was announced September 12 last year, but did not begin delivering to November 3 in the United States. That may not be the case this year. Kuo and others have suggested that all three phones will begin shipping in September, although others say that the 6.1-inch LCD will be delayed by about a month due to a supply chain shortage.
How much will it cost?
This section is a bit difficult. Remember that the Apple report increases the average price of all iPhones? It does not necessarily mean that Apple will make its state-of-the-art iPhone more expensive. According to Kuo, the company instead of "adopting a more aggressive" pricing policy. That means that while the most expensive version of the device will still be in the $ 1000 series, the others will be a bit more pricier than the current lineup.
The dollar figures now floated are $ 900 to $ 1000 for the 6.5-inch OLED device. Kuo anticipates that the 5.8-inch OLED device will cost $ 800 to $ 900 and the 6.1-inch LCD will cost $ 600 to $ 700. If you think that the average iPhone costs $ 724 in the second quarter This year, you can imagine how this number will trend upwards, as more people upgrade to 2018 iPhones. Unless you are an Apple investor, this number does not mean much to you. But you should start getting used to the idea of more expensive iPhones. Someone has to pay for the extra screen space!
