Could this be the 'cheap' iPhone we've been waiting for?

Rumored Leak Indicates Apple's New Entry Level Smartphone To Be Called iPhone XC, Per 'The Verge' iPhone 2018 will be called iPhone XS, iPhone XS Plus and iPhone XC, prices and availability leaked

As a matter of cost cutting, the iPhone 9 will not be equipped with the OLED screen iPhone X got us used to, but with an LCD one. When it comes to the iPhone XC, Ben Gaskin tweeted some pictures on its profile showing some white, red, and blue prototypes.

Although the iPhone X is still expensive on contract things have come down in price a little.

However, besides those two incredible phones, Apple kept its focus on a budget device, and we are happy to hear about it. Apple deliberately shies away from new developments in LTE-Advanced technology, leading to iPhones that are demonstrably slower than their Android counterparts on wireless networks. It'll be joined by a similar, but larger, 6.5-inch model, now tipped to be called the iPhone XS Max (although we're not convinced by that name).

Apple has scheduled a Special Event on September 12th in Cupertino, California.

The new phones will be "all display", meaning no buttons on the front - so it's pretty certain that you'll be unlocking your phone with your face if you buy any new iPhone in 2018.

For more on everything we're hoping for and everything that's expected, check out CNET's full preview of Apple's upcoming iPhone event. This would be a bit of a game-changer, as before now, Apple's always released mobile products with Lightning ports or their original 30-pin monster ports. The trailer shows both iPhones carrying the same design as the existing iPhone X, though it does show them in Gold color in which they look quite stunning.

However, it is likely that Kantar is confusing the cause and effect relation here as it is possible that people who plan to get more out of their devices are the ones that are ready to pay higher prices for larger phones, and not the other way round. Shortly after Apple's big event on Wednesday, Microsoft is expected to introduce new Surface hardware on the 2nd of October, followed by new Pixel hardware from Google on the 9th of October. She thinks that iPhone unit growth may surprise investors to the upside in Apple's 2019 fiscal year.

This year, Apple is expected to unveil three new fully redesigned smartphones, as there was not much difference between the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus and their predecessors.

Apple had 17 per cent of the smartwatch market in the second quarter of 2018 with 4.7 million units shipped, beating out second place Xiaomi Corp.by half a million units and Fitbit Inc.by 2 million, according to data from IDC.

New MacBook: The company is preparing a new lower-cost laptop with a 13-inch Retina display to succeed the MacBook Air. You'll need two new accessories for that, a 29W USB-C adapter, and a USB-C to Lightning cable, which will run you $74.
