Assuming 9to5Mac's report was accurate, and assuming Apple doesn't come up with a quick name change, we could suffer people on social media and elsewhere making the same jokes about the iPhone's name for the next year and beyond.
For example, Quick Mobile has taken to calling the 6.1-inch LCD iPhone the "iPhone 9". The display on the iPhone XS Max will be almost bezel-less that will help Apple to achieve a screen to body ratio of more than 90 percent. Nobody knows for sure which paint jobs will make the cut, but a new leak has some answers. All the three models would feature FaceID authentication, and it looks like Apple has got rid of the TouchID button for once and for all.
With Apple set to launch their upcoming devices next week, the rumour mill is abuzz.
As far as other upgrades are considered, we would surely see Apple's A12 chip in the two high-end models while the LCD screen bearing models could have the A11 Bionic chip. Interestingly, Apple's event invite also features the same gold colour, thereby confirming that the iPhone will feature the new gold and black blend. This iPhone model will most likely have a single rear camera but have iPhone X features like Face ID integration and gesture-based controls. To recall, noted analyst Ming Chi Kuo had predicted that the LCD variant will be priced starting from as low as $600 (roughly Rs. 43,100). This is a bit of a price reduction from last year's iPhone X, which launched at $999 for the 64GB model.
Apple is likely to continue with the standard screen sizes for iPad, i.e., 9.7 inches and 12.9 inches.More news: NIck Foles Expected To Start The Philadelphia Eagles' Season Opener
According to 9to5Mac, the Apple Watch Series 4 will have a 384×480 pixels resolution on the 42mm-sized dial which is slightly more dense than the 312×390 pixels display on last year's watchOS wearable.
It is assumed these prices are for the baseline models of each model specified.
Why should we believe for one second that Apple won't go back to the iPhone 8S or iPhone 9 just because it has already announced the iPhone X?
Several reliable tipsters have previously claimed that the 6.1-inch iPhone will come in a number of new colors, including red, blue, yellow, orange, and pink. The crown seems to be more deeply embedded into the body of the watch and its opening seems to be of a different shape.
