As indicated in a report recently published by Fast Company, there is a strong likelihood that Apple will only be making 8 million units of last year’s flagship, the iPhone X, for the second quarter of this year. It goes without saying that 8 million units is a ridiculously low number, at least by Apple’s standards.
Well, it does make you wonder -- what do you call the iPhone models that follow last year’s iPhone X? Perhaps the logical choice would be iPhone 11, considering that the X in iPhone X’s name was meant to celebrate the ten year dominance of the first ever iPhone model (released back in 2007).
Here is some good news for owners of iPhone 8 devices that have experienced unresponsive display issues with their third party screens -- Apple has just rolled out a new iOS 11.3.1 update, which comes with a fix for the display glitches plaguing a number of units that have recently installed iOS 11.3.
It appears to be so, at least according to new information presented through a report recently released by Consumer Intelligence Research Partners (CIRP). In completing its latest survey, what the research group did was ask 500 iOS mobile users based in the United States, particularly those who have purchased an iPhone, an iPad, or a Mac in 2018 (specifically in the period between January 1st until March 31st).
There have been a lot of rumors brewing in the last few days with regards to upcoming iPhone models, so we better get to it. There is talk that the iPhone SE 2 will be fitted with a glass rear cover, which should allow the device’s battery to be wireless charged using a charging pad. Known leaker Ben Geskin has actually posted a render via his Twitter account. Geskin has also stated that the iPhone SE 2, which is hiding behind the code name Jaguar, is now currently in mass production, and it is quite possible that fans of the small iPhone will not have long to wait before the new model gets released.
According to a recent report published by French website Consomac just this week, it appears that Apple has registered a number of unreleased iPhone model numbers with the Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC), which is basically the regulatory body of the Eurasian Economic Union (EEU).
According to a report recently released by Counterpoint, one of Apple’s flagship device offerings last year, the iPhone X, has managed to capture 35 percent of the entire profits of the worldwide smartphone market during the final quarter of last year. And while the total profits of the global mobile industry decreased 1 percent in Q4 2017 compared to that of Q4 2016, the iPhone X did help Apple register a 1 percent year over year improvement during the last three months of 2017.
Industry watchers Steven Milunovich and Benjamin Wilson from UBS fully expect that Apple’s next flagship device, specifically the follow up to last year’s iPhone X, will come with a price of $1,100 when it gets released later this year. With that pricing, the new iPhone model would basically cost a hundred bucks more than the already expensive $1,000 iPhone X.
It was nearly a couple of weeks ago when Apple had first began rolling outiOS 11.3, which is the newest iteration of its iOS mobile operating system. That deployment brought the usual bug fixes, as well as some cool enhancements, such as upgrades to ARKit (Apple’s augmented reality platform), battery related features, and a new message that notifies users whenever iOS 11 wants to gain access to private information.
Apple is formally unveiling the (PRODUCT)RED Special Edition versions of two of its flagship device offerings last year, specifically the iPhone 8 and the iPhone 8 Plus. These variants will be officially released this coming April 13th, although in some countries and mobile markets, customers can start ordering online as early as April 10th.
