Before you start to think that this is a clickbait post, let me tell you upfront that no, Apple is not shutting down the iPhone because there is absolutely no reason to! In spite of all the criticism and questionable decisions by the company, Apple remains the most profitable smartphone seller in the whole world and they are certainly not going to shut down one of their most lucrative businesses by any means. Nevertheless, the iPhone X2 or XI or 11 will probably never come to be because the Cupertino giant might be changing the way they name these devices.


Apple may simply choose to call their lower end smartphones just "iPhones" and their higher end models "iPhone X." So how will you know that it's the latest model and not the outdated one from the previous year? Well, the year of release will probably be mentioned on the box as the only indicator of that fact. Which means that the next iPhone X that comes out might be called iPhone X (2018). Do you think this will happen and will you like it if it does? Let us know in the comments.

Foldable smartphones are not exactly a novelty anymore since the ZTE Axon M released last year made sure that the Chinese manufacturer was the first one to deliver a foldable smartphone to the market. The phone isn't without it's share of flaws, but it definitely is the first of its kind. After being rumored to appear first in Samsung's arsenal and even teased by DJ Koh, the foldable Galaxy X never really arrived from Samsung, but a new rumor has it that Apple might be trying to pull of something similar in the next two years.


The report comes from CNBC and it states that Apple is likely working on a iPhone which will have the capacity to become an iPad, as and when required! Apparently, Apple has teamed up with a secret Asian partner to make this happen by the year 2020. If this turns out to be true, do you think that it will replace the iPad? Let us know in the comments?

Apple is planning to launch three new iPhones this year and they are all going to be borrowing design elements from the current gen iPhone X, according to famous Apple leakster and KGI Securities' analyst Ming-Chi Kuo. All of what you are going to be reading next, comes from MacRumors and is backed up by ET News from Korea.


There will apparently be an iPhone X (2nd Gen), iPhone X Plus and an iPhone X SE. The 2nd Gen iPhone X will be exactly the same as the current one in terms of display and form factor, but with more updated specs. The iPhone X Plus will sport a much larger 6.5-inch display, but the rest of the internals will probably match the iPhone X (2nd gen). The iPhone X SE will serve possibly as a low-end device in the middle with its 6.1-inch display. The batterie on these three devices are expected to be 2800mAh, 3,400mAh and 2,950mAh for the iPhone X, iPhone X Plus and the iPhone X SE respectively.


If you think that the iPhone SE sounds perfect, you would be unpleasantly surprised because despite sporting the same form factor as its more premium brothers, it won't have an OLED display, 3D Touch or even the dual camera setup. The already ridiculously expensive Apple phones are going to become even more expensive in 2018 with the iPhone X starting at $1,000 and the iPhone X Plus from $1,200 possibly. The "cheap" iPhone X will start at $700 - $800 in all likelihood. If you thought Samsung flagships were getting expensive, it's time to rethink the situation!

There was a time when Apple used to make small and sleek phones but that time well and truly gone. If you thought the iPhone X with its beautiful but huge 5.8-inch bezel-less display was big, wait till you hear this. Apparently, Apple is planning to build a smartphone that will have a 6.5-inch display and it might be called the iPhone X Plus. Reports also indicate that the next iPhone will be known as iPhone X as well, but with updated hardware, but quite possibly, the same 18:9 borderless OLED display. LG is reportedly going to supply the 6.5-inch display for this rumored gigantic iPhone.


It was quite a happening week for Apple as this news comes in right after the company publicly apologized for slowing down older smartphones and promised to replace the batteries of recent (iPhone 6 and up) iPhones for only for only $29. Also, a key figure in the music industry and longtime Apple Music Head, Jimmy Iovine is leaving the company.

Just as last year, Apple's iPhones have managed to hold the number one spot as the bestselling tech product of the year in 2017 as well. In fact, the iPhone has performed significantly better than last year, as is made evident by their astounding sales numbers. Apparently, Apple has sold more iPhones in 2017 than four of the other tech products on the list from 2nd till the 5th combined. Although we still have a day left in the year, it is being estimated that by the end of 2017, Apple will have sold 223 million iPhones and that's a staggering number.


It remains to be seen whether or not the recent reports about Apple slowing down its older iPhones to preserve battery affects the company's sales in any way, but given the loyalty of Apple users, that isn't very likely. The Galaxy S8, S8+ and Note 8 managed to reach a sales figure of 33 million and take the second place on the list, followed by the Amazon Echo Dot speakers at 24 million, Apple Watch at 20 million, and the Nintendo Switch at 15 million.
