iPhone generation 2018: images leaked to all three models?
09.08.2018, 13:30 hrs:
It is expected that Apple will introduce its new iPhone generation in September – but already rumors. Now, about a month before the expected release, the first official photos have come to light. The French magazine Les Numériques indicates that the image (see below) is a (well-photographed) official marketing photo, which Apple actually only wanted to introduce in September at the next keynote.
Here you can see a list that is characteristic of such marketing photos of the three new iPhone models. What initially surprised are the apparently chosen names: accordingly, the two OLED devices as iPhone XS or iPhone XS Plus for sale, the LCD phone as iPhone 9.
Regarding the listings in the offer, the surprises are within the limits. On the basis of the illustrations it can be guessed that all three models will probably make a complete screen with front cover – in both cases not all popular Notch. Together, the three devices also have all of them can be charged wirelessly, because the information texts can be found.
The screen sizes confirm many of the rumors discussed earlier: the two XS iPhones are equipped with OLED (sizes: 5.8 and 6.5 inch), while the iPhone 9 is set on the LCD (6.1 inch). The back is, according to the information in the French magazine, made of glass on all models. There is no speech from a fingerprint sensor here – it can be concluded that Apple should place the 2018 devices exclusively on Face ID.
According to the report, Apple will also use two strategies for the camera: the iPhone 9, for example, is expected to have only one photo sensor, while the two XS models will have implemented these two.
New iPhone generation: does it look like the cheap LCD version?
That Apple this year a cheaper iPhone version with an LCD screen on the market, is now considered safe. Especially because of the expected, low price of about 600 US dollars (equivalent to about 520 euros), the device is already causing a stir with many Apple fans.
Now a supposed first picture of the new LCD iPhone has surfaced on the internet. On the photo, only the back of the Apple device is visible. There are some speculations about the sources of the photos that appeared on Slashleaks.
The background with the white wall in the background has meant that many social media users believe it can be a secret photo in an Apple factory – but there is no real proof of that.
There is not much to see in the small image section: in addition to the unmistakable Apple logo, a camera with one lens can be seen – the device itself appears to be completely black.
However, the authenticity of the image must now be strongly doubted. The usually very knowledgeable Leaker Ben Geskin posted a photo on his Twitter account that probably reveals the original leak as fake.
He states that the photo is "just" an iPhone 8, which was treated accordingly by Photoshop to make it look like the expected new LCD iPhone.
Dual SIM only for China
08.08.2018, 11:00 am:
Since the first iPhone iOS users have to do without a dual-SIM function. For the generation of iPhones of this year, however, rumors came round, after which Apple wants to equip at least one of its devices with a dual-sim function. Corresponding comments had appeared in the beta-5 version of iOS 12. Apple fans may have legitimate hopes for a second SIM slot.
However, the hope seems to be curtailed – at least for Apple users in this country – as Apple Insider, referring to the Taiwan newspaper United Daily News, Apple plans an iPhone model with dual SIM functionality, but this is only on the Chinese market appears. The accusations are based on statements made by anonymous employees of the Apple supplier Foxconn.
Especially in China the demand for dual-sim devices is very high compared to other countries, so Apple wanted to serve this demand. Apple users in Germany and the rest of the world should give up the rather practical function. How dual-SIM card works and when the function would be useful, we have summarized it here for you.
A final confirmation is probably no later than September 12, 2018. Then Apple will probably present its new iPhones to the public.

Does Apple bring the LCD iPhone with a borderless display?
31.07.2018, 11:00 am:
The 2018-generation LCD iPhone from Apple will most likely be equipped with a new "Full Active" LCD screen. This should enable the manufacturer to make the margins on the new budget phone disappear, as it already knows from the iPhone X.
Leaker Ben Geskin posted photos of dummies of all three new iPhones on his Twitter account (see below). If the iPhones would eventually achieve this, all new models would be almost limitless.
The Japanese Apple blog Macotakara had also previously reported that the Cupertino group, thanks to new technology, can hold the LCD screen almost without limit – this was previously not possible with LCDs.
Moreover, Apple apparently plans to implement a new "Pixel Eyes" touch sensor in the LCD screen. This is very thin and would therefore round off the design without borders.

LCD iPhone is probably colorful
26.07.2018, 10.30 am:
The fact that Apple will launch a 6.1-inch iPhone with an LCD screen as part of the 2018 generation is now almost certainly in the industry.
Now the Japanese portal Macotakara in a report offers a leaked photo, which apparently shows the color combination intended for the LCD-iPhone.
The most surprising thing about the leak is the number of possible schemas: a total of six colors would therefore be available for the Apple smartphone that can be chosen under the name iPhone 9. The authenticity of the photos can not be confirmed. Whether Apple will really take this colorful step can be doubted.
The following colors would be available according to the leak:
- White (white)
- Black (black)
- Flash yellow (bright yellow)
- Bright orange (almost reddish orange)
- Electric Blue (Dark Blue)
- Taupe (grayish, with a slight browning, "brownish-gray")
Leak shows the new iPhone screens
the surfaced photo & # 39; s The front panels, which must be equipped with the latest three iPhones, allow conclusions regarding the screen size, edge of the housing and other functions.
The three devices is a new iPhone X with OLED screen, the size of its predecessor with its 5.8 inch and probably the standard model for Apple. There is also a 6.1-inch model to see, the iPhone 9 or iPhone X Lite and also because of the built-in LCD screen is cheaper than the original should be. A much thicker edge can also be seen. The third device is a 6.5-inch iPhone X Plus, which is likely to offer the most features and can therefore be considered a premium version. All three devices do without a start button. To this end, Apple continues to rely on the notch at the top of the screen.
The price of the iPhone X Plus and the iPhone X could amount to 900 to 1,100 dollars according to speculation. Apple would be based on the introductory prices of the predecessor, which would be very understandable. If Apple can not make significant changes, it will be difficult to convince existing customers to buy.
Bestseller potential, however, has the probably cheaper iPhone X Lite. The Leaker Ben Geskin speaks of only $ 300 – $ 500 – which would be very atypical for Apple. A price between $ 600 and $ 800 seems more realistic – a new Apple phone has been cheaper for a long time.
Leakages have surfaced: Apple will probably reload on USB-C
03.07.2018, 14:30 hrs:
On the Chinese portal Chongdiantou several recordings have been made that show the expected new power supplies for the 2018 generation Apple iPhones.
Many Apple users had long waited for such a step in the group – after all, the supply of iPhones previously delivered power supplies only generated a voltage of 5 watts, making fast charging much more difficult. The new USB-C power supply should instead with their 19 watts, a real fast charge function (50 percent in about 30 minutes) should allow.
In addition, the report on Chongdiantou indicates that the correct USB-C to Lightning cable must also be supplied.
New image is to confirm 6.1-inch iPhone
25.06.2018, 10:55 clock
After Apple apparently no longer plans a successor to the iPhone SE, this year is probably a successor to the iPhone X the cheapest new iPhone: an Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, very early predicted iPhone with 6.1-inch LCD screen ,
The fact that this iPhone will actually appear should now occupy images of the shell producer Ghostek, the BGR has published. You see the front and back of a smartphone case for the 6.1-inch iPhone – and the accompanying iPhone. The designs are based on data coming directly from a contract manufacturer. According to BGR, a source that is familiar with Apple's plans has confirmed its presentation as correct. In accordance with previous rumors, the 2018 LCD iPhone therefore the design of the current iPhone X and visually looks in details. The biggest difference is the size – the 2017 launched iPhone X measures 5.8 inches.

New leak: does he reveal the new iPhone formats?
Has Olixar, the manufacturer of mobile phones, leaked the sizes of expected iPhones for 2018? Olixar presented new products to the British technology store MobileFun, which should be suitable covers for the new iPhones. This reports the "Sun".
According to Apple, iPhones in sizes 5.8 inches, 6.1 inches and 6.5 inches may come on the market in September.
The screens would therefore consistently be larger than those of last year's models. Olixar himself did not comment on the rumors. However, the fact is that accessory manufacturers begin to produce their products a few months before the introduction in order to have them in stock on time. That is why they are usually well informed about news. Nevertheless, the leaked formats must be regarded as speculation until an official confirmation from Apple.
Larger and with Triple Camera: drawings for new Apple iPhones have surfaced
The rumors about Apple's supposedly three successors for the iPhone X persisted for months on end – more accurate details of the devices were scarce so far. A recent leak on Forbes could now bring some more light into the darkness for the first time.
The images published by Forbes allegedly contain design sketches for both the new flagship device iPhone X Plus and the "budget" -phone, whose exact name does not seem to have been established yet.
According to the leaked photo's, the most massive innovation of the iPhone X Plus is the Triple (Rear) camera – which is similar to the Huawei P20.
Of course there is currently little to say about the way it works, but it seems unlikely that Apple could rely on a similar principle as Huawei in the P20.
Their monochrome camera, which was implemented alongside the primary and secondary modules, provided excellent images in difficult lighting conditions.
Despite a 6.5-inch screen, the X Plus according to the sketches would be totally smaller than, for example, the iPhone 8 Plus – even if it was only about one millimeter in height and width (157.2 x 77.1 compared to 158.4 x 78.1 millimeters).
However, due to the steel frame, it will probably weigh heavier than its predecessors.
The smallest and probably the cheapest new iPhone model is relatively a slimmed-down version. This can be solved on different specifications: the device (according to the Leaks only called "iPhone") only has a camera on the back.
In contrast to the two more expensive new iPhones, the budget iPhone only relies on the first generation of Face ID technology – and not on the two big brothers and sisters of the second generation. The 3D touch function will probably not be found in the smartphone.
The real stimulus of the Apple device should be for many customers, but above all the price: if the predictions of the leaks vote, the device will probably be up to 300 US dollars (about 254 euros for direct conversion) cheaper than the iPhone X to the start of the sale.
The cheapest of the new Apple iPhones is expected to have dimensions of 147.12 x 71.52 millimeters – and is therefore considerably smaller than the iPhone X Plus.
Apple is already messing up production
11.06.2018, 13:45 hours:
Apple is likely to propose a much more cautious approach to the production of the iPhone-X successor this year: the iKonzerns supplier chain was informed that only about 80 percent of last year's production for the 2018 models was commissioned,
That would mean a total of about 20 million fewer iPhone devices in sales, as the Nikkei Asian Review magazine reported.
"Apple is relatively conservative in placing new orders for the upcoming iPhones," one of Nikkei's four best suppliers quotes. "Especially with the three new models, the target capacity can be up to 20 percent lower than in previous years."
Apple wants to renounce 3D Touch in the future
Apple has reportedly released a new iPhone this year, which comes without a 3D touch function. Of the so-called planned three iPhones, the LCD model should not receive the function. Rumor has it that it is the cheapest of the three models and therefore it will not receive different functions. By refraining from 3D Touch, costs must be saved accordingly, predicts Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo.
With the saved costs, Apple compensates Kuo for a more expensive display technology that recognizes touch inputs. A so-called "Cover Glass Sensor" will be used, which makes the construction of more stable displays possible, but apparently not compatible with 3D Touch. From 2019 onwards, the technology will also be used in OLED models. How the future of 3D Touch is organized is uncertain.
The feature was introduced by Apple with the iPhone 6s and has since been installed in all new iPhones, with the exception of the iPhone SE. The iPhone recognizes how much the user presses on the display via 3D touch. Apple thus realizes different functions: with a lot of pressure on app icons, frequently used functions can be called up faster, for example. Within apps, the so-called "Peek and Pop" function is used to permanently open a preview of links, e-mails or photos. Many notifications can be responded directly via 3D Touch.
Although 3D Touch is used in many places, it is unclear how often the function is actually used. Often the time savings are marginal, moreover, identical functions can be implemented with a long finger pressure.
3D Touch: the new killer feature of the iPhone 6s
Is the successor to the iPhone X less than $ 600?
The production of the iPhone generation 2018 is likely to start in the coming weeks.
As the Chinese Economic Daily News reported, Samsung will start production of the OLED screens for the Apple smartphones in May. Samsung was already the only producer of the screens in the production of the iPhone X and will probably continue to do so.
The industry generally assumes that Apple is planning three different iPhone models for 2018 – probably a revised iPhone X, a cheaper iPhone X SE and the new flagship, the iPhone X Plus.
Since the usually very knowledgeable KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo writes on MacRumors, he expects two versions of the iPhone X SE with a 6.1-inch LCD screen: one with a single SIM and one with a dual-SIM technology with two slots for physical SIM cards.
He also assumes that the iPhone X SE with a simple SIM card might even be available for $ 550 (around EUR 444), while the dual sim model is at least 650 Dollar (approximately EUR 525) estimates. However, the actual euro prices are probably higher, the Apple Euro prices are not calculated according to the official price.
Also controversial Daily Daily News additional first prize classifications: so the prices for the new iPhone generation will start based on their information at $ 799 (around 646 euros) for the iPhone X SE and at $ 999 (around 808 euros) for the iPhone X Plus end. The revised iPhone X will probably come in the middle at 899 dollars (about 727 euros).
The next iPhone should have a triple camera
13.04.2018, 10:58 clock
Until now, users can use the iPhone 8 Plus and the iPhone X for close-ups and long-distance shots with a two-lens system. 2019 should change that: the next iPhone should have a third lens.
As reported in the Taiwan Economic Daily News, from 2019 Apple plans a complete modification of its iPhone camera system. The next iPhone should therefore have a triple camera, but the resolution of 12 megapixels should not change. But that is not yet certain – the information from Asia must be handled with the necessary caution.
With a third lens, users have new photographic capabilities and the quality of shots can be improved in low light. The zoom lens is extended to the successor to the iPhone X: instead of a double optical zoom lens, as is currently possible with iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X, Apple plans to report a 6P lens design with a five-fold zoom lens.
If you do not want to wait until 2019 to test the Three Lens system, you can do so with the Huawei P20 Pro. Photo enthusiasts can capture very flexible motifs and with a triple zoom function. Especially in the twilight the photos are of good quality. We tested it.
Apple is working on three iPhone X successors
27.02.2018, 08:35 clock
The information coincides with earlier rumors: renowned journalist and Apple expert Mark Gurman claims to have learned from trusted sources that Apple will launch three new iPhones this autumn as the successor to the iPhone X.
According to the Bloomberg report, this should be a larger model, a model the size of the iPhone X and a version that has essential functions of the iPhone X, but which is offered at a lower price. Apple wants to reach all potential user groups: on the one hand powerful users who want to use their iPhone for as many tasks as possible and therefore prefer a large screen, and on the other hand price-conscious users who did not want to buy the iPhone X because of the high price.
Apple is currently working with manufacturers to test the production of the three new iPhones. According to the sources, the arrangement is not final – at least, but it coincides with earlier rumors, in which three new iPhones have been predicted.
Apple has been working on the biggest iPhone so far
The new, larger iPhone X will be equipped with a 6.5-inch display and is one of the largest smartphones. For comparison: the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 has a 6.3-inch display. Thanks to the largely limitless design, the gigantic iPhone should be about the size of an iPhone 8 Plus. Prototypes of the device, which are called internal D33, should work with a resolution of 1242 × 2688 pixels. As with the iPhone X, an OLED display must be used.
For the first time, Apple could also offer an iPhone that supports two SIM cards. However, this option should not exist in all markets.
LCD iPhone in the design of the iPhone X
To be attractive to buyers who do not want to spend more than 1000 euros on a new smartphone, Apple also reportedly plans a cheaper iPhone, which should also receive the borderless design of the iPhone X and Face ID. To keep the price low, an LCD screen must be installed instead of an OLED screen. Instead of the stainless steel of the current iPhone X, it should also go back to aluminum.
Apple after weak sales under pressure
Apple hopes that sales will clearly rise from the bigger screen. 77.3 million iPhone X sold Apple in the fourth quarter of 2017 – and thus significantly less than the analysts expected 80.2 million. That is why Apple was under pressure to achieve a great success with the next iPhone. Analysts are already speculating that the next iPhone could usher in a supercycle, a year in which more than 10 percent of iPhone owners switch to the new model. Especially in the Asian market, analysts see potential for this.
Apple is planning three new iPhone devices: followers of iPhone X are now resolved
The rumor mill sees: Before 2018, Apple experts expect three new iPhone models. Apple apparently pursues three ideas: the iPhones should do that cheaper, bigger and fresher to be.
- cheaper: With the iPhone SE2, Apple wants to offer cheaper smartphone manufacturers such as Huawei, Samsung, LG or HTC. The device should go further, as well as the pioneer iPhone SE (here our test) for Goodseller. Customer survey showed: Apple scored in price and processing in iPhone SE. For less money they got a cheap iPhone 6. Apple now wants to repeat this with the SE2. Is it only the question of what is in the SE2: a cheap 8 or rather a cheap iPhone X?
- taller: As the business magazine "Forbes" reported, the iPhone X Plus seems already decided. The device must have a 5.8-inch screen, an OLED screen from LG and FaceID. In terms of price, the iPhone X Plus can break all records. So far, the X with 1319 Euro (256 gigabytes) is the most expensive iPhone ever. That could change in the fall.
- fresh: A revised iPhone X should also be on the market by the autumn. Whether it's an iPhone X2, an iPhone 9 or the iPhone Colin (a code name Forbes calls) is unclear. One thing is certain: Apple could make the FaceID even better and also improve the stability of the OLED screen.
Of course, Apple never makes any comments about rumors. So far, the company has not responded to a corresponding CHIP request.

iPhone X 2018 can get LG screens
Apple has reportedly ordered 15 million OLED screens from LG for the next generation iPhone, which will be released this fall. The reports MacRumors, referring to the industry magazine Electronic Times. Up to now, Apple has been relying exclusively on Samsung as a supplier of OLED panels, which was first used in the iPhone X this year. Earlier, Apple produced only smartphones with LCD screens – which in the past already came from LG.
That Apple is looking for further collaboration with LG is not new – there have been rumors in the past again and again. However, LG was not considered sufficiently reliable to deliver the required high volumes to Apple. At the same time, the OLED screens from LG have not yet been able to stand out because of their exceptionally high quality. Both the Google Pixel 2 XL and the LG V30 had to be criticized for their modest display. At Apple there is uncertainty about how a change from Samsung to LG affects the quality of the iPhone. As early as July, it was reported that Apple had invested more than $ 2.6 billion in LG's OLED production.
The reported number of 15 million displays would not meet the needs of the next iPhone generation. In any case, Apple would continue to involve OLED panels from Samsung. Specifically, LG would deliver the 6.5 screens of the (supposedly planned) larger iPhone X, while Samsung screens deliver 5.8 or 6 inches.
Next iPhone X gets a bigger battery
08.12.2017, 12:11 clock
Apple could eliminate a weakness with the successor to the iPhone X, which was all iPhones of the past years: the battery should be noticeably better. Together with LG Chem, Apple is currently working on the production of the L-shaped battery in the iPhone X as a single cell in the future – two cells have been used so far. The prediction comes from a recent report by analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, about which MacRumors reports.
The new design would enable Apple to noticeably increase battery capacity. Kuo estimates that the 5.8-inch iPhone's capacity could be increased from the current 2716 mAh to about 2900 to 3000 mAh. The expected for 2018 larger iPhone X successor with 6.5-inch screen is to receive a battery with a capacity of 3300 to 3400 mAh displacements.
Kuo is considered a well-informed and above-average reliable source – his predictions often came in the past. Most recently he had already predicted that Apple will introduce three iPhones next year.
