Check out these leaked details for the rumoured new iPhone

  • Apple expected to return $100bn to shareholders

For starters, there is a rumor there will be three new iPhones this year, all-embracing the notch.

"That lower-priced iPhone X, essentially, should be a successful product".

The device would also not take over other things from the iPhone X, to reduce the price.

All models should be capable to run Augmented Reality Apps with updated iOS 12.

The rumored 6.1-inch iPhone for 2018 won't have 3D Touch functionality.

San Francisco: Apple Inc. earnings this week will confirm what most investors have finally accepted: The iPhone X didn't live up to the hype. This is a ideal timing to launch a new naming schema or they will be just called iPhone and iPhone Pro (like iPad and iPad Pro).

KGI's former analyst Ming-Chi Kuo said this new display technology - dubbed a Cover Glass Sensor or CGS - means cracking and shattering the phone screen is less likely, but he predicted it will not come out until Apple's 2019 phone releases. Previously, he worked at Concord and DigiTimes.


Apple is working on a LCD-display iPhone that may not feature its legendary "3D Touch" feature to balance costs, a top analyst with Taiwanese business group KGI Securities has said.

In a note obtained by TheFly.com, Bernstein analyst A.M. Sacconaghi Jr highlights the "striking" similarities between the current iPhone X and 8 cycle and the iPhone 6s cycle - another hard period for phone sales. One of the features that could be killed off is the 3D Touch.

Some users are not too excited about this plan, given that the 3D Touch has been very useful since it was first introduced in the iPhone 6S.

You will still have to rely on lightning earbuds or get yourself a Bluetooth Headphone for the cordless audio experience. The iPhone X's parts cost $115 more than the iPhone 8's, according to a November analysis.

Bloomberg claims that Cook and other Apple executives have a "major prove-me" period ahead, beginning with a new sales forecast.

IMany believe that the iPhone SE2 will be released at Apple's Worldwide Developers' Conference in June.
