Next iPhones expected to be biggest ever

Reports until now suggested that all the three iPhones will launch on September 12, but new information coming from analyst Ming-Chi Kuo reveals that the 6.1-inch display iPhone launch may be delayed by a month. Foxconn has reportedly landed a majority of the orders for the two new OLED iPhones and 30% of the orders for the LCD model, leading to record revenue in July.

On the positive side, the new iPhones will boast significantly bigger, edge-to-edge screens. This will have aluminum edges and an LCD screen rather than the iPhone X's OLED panel, and it will be available in a range of colors, according to Bloomberg. The average price of iPhones sold in Apple's most-recent quarter was $724, up 19 percent from a year earlier.

The new line will include a cheaper iPhone aimed at more budget-conscious customers, according to the report.

Apple is also expected to come out with another cheaper iPhone model, which will also look like the iPhone X, expected to have a 6.1 inch LCD screen.

All the three models are speculated to ditch the conventional home button and use screen gestures and use Face ID like the current iPhone X.

Speaking of Apple Watches: the company is rumored to be releasing new models in September as well. However, all three will come with a notch and also feature Apple's Face ID. The new low-end iPhone with the larger screen will give Apple a way to compete there. If accurate, this would be the biggest iPhone launch since 2014's iPhone 6 series. For the upgrade to the 5.8-sail iPhone X, the "foremost changes" will seemingly be iterative updates to processing hump and the camera. The second one will be the upgraded version of the iPhone X, which will come with a 6.5-inch OLED display.

Unfortunately, there's no word for MacBook users whether Apple will provide a replacement for that machine's terrible keyboard or a touchscreen, but that probably means that neither will happen.

As previously reported, commentators predict Apple will use the event to release a "Pro" iPad, new AirPods, AirPower wireless charger and new Apple Watch. And a lower cost iPhone won't be a bad thing, either. Both devices will be offered with dual-SIM support, at least in some regions.

Now, imagine an iPhone X with a 7nm process and a 4,000mAh battery - it could be the killer phone.

The launch comes on the heels of Samsung Electronics Co. introducing its larger Note 9 smartphone. Macquarie reissued a "buy" rating and issued a $197.00 price objective on shares of Apple in a research report on Wednesday, May 2nd.
