IPhone 2018 naming and pricing leaks - even the cheap one is expensive

The new larger iPhone X-like phone is expected to be more expensive than the starting price of £999 of 2017's iPhone X, further stretching the expense of top-end smartphones.

We're just counting down the days before one of the most awaited smartphone events of the year, especially for Apple fans who have been biding their time since the beginning of 2018. The report was based on "industry insiders", and claimed that Apple will limit this to the OLED variants, and not include it on the budget iPhone Xc. The names, for example, are indeed the iPhone XS, iPhone XS Plus (not Max), and iPhone XC.

Fallon presented to the judge Wednesday a copy of two text messages that he said were sent to Bobbitt from D'Amico on August 27. Officials with GoFundMe and Bobbitt's lawyer said Thursday that Bobbitt will get all the money donated to him.


According to recent reports, Apple's iPhone X successor is expected to be called the iPhone XS, while another model, now being referred to as the iPhone XS Max, will take the presumed iPhone 9 Plus slot thanks to its larger 6.5-inch display (and, we assume, zero sugar content).

The iPhone XS is expected to be the premium-edition model with an OLED screen in the upcoming range of iPhone 2018.

But on Saturday, he said Democrats have a chance to woo independents and Republicans unhappy with the direction of the party. President Trump pretended to be unmoved, saying, "I watched it but I fell asleep".


But when it comes to the iPhone Xs series, there's another feature that is being rumoured. Among "suggested" names have been "iPhone X Plus", "iPhone XI" and "iPhone X2", but it's clear that the names are still a mystery. It would also have a single-lens camera, compared to the other two's dual-lens snapper. Or at least according to the prices being shown here, with 5,888 RMB ($860) for the iPhone XC, 7,388 RMB ($1,080) for the iPhone XS, and 8,388 RMB ($1,230) for the iPhone XS Plus. That's the first time we've heard that name. Definitely not the "affordable" iPhone X you may have been hoping for. The image also consists of a tagline "The new iPhone is on the market".

Along with a giant display, this phone could also get a new name with a recent leak revealing Apple may ditch the usual Plus branding in favour of calling the Max. As The Verge reports, however, it appears that some early information has been leaked to the internet via popular social media platform Twitter - the information in question indicating that the entry level iPhone will be called the iPhone XC.
