Is Your iPhone 8 Crashing Constantly? You Might Need This Free Repair

Is Your iPhone 8 Crashing Constantly? You Might Need This Free Repair

The company has remained coy about the release date, specs, pricing and just about everything else.

With the 5.8-inch iPhone X replacement set to be called the iPhone Xs, it was wondered whether the larger model would be called the same thing with buyers simply choosing a screen size at purchase.

Next Wednesday, Apple will be holding its annual event where the firm will announce new iPhones. We're expecting a trio of new iPhones, including a 5.8-inch successor to the iPhone X, a larger and more premium 6.5-inch iPhone Xs Max, and a 6.1-inch base model.

Amongst other industry scuttlebutt, the phones are tipped to have OLED displays and a new A12 chip designed in-house specifically for the iPhone.

Thanks to our colleagues and friends at iPhone Italia, to whom I owe a special thank you, we were able to hold and physically compare what should be the new Apple smartphones thanks to these really well-made mockups. The new iPhones and Apple Watch will be coming in a new Gold color variant. With that in mind, take these prices with a grain of salt - especially with regards to the iPhone Xs family.

Reliable Apple site 9to5Mac broke the news about the name of the device, which will be the largest smartphone Apple has ever produced.

"A very small percentage of iPhone 8 devices contain logic boards with a manufacturing defect", according to Apple. Bloomberg reported there will be three iPhone models this year, two with more expensive OLED display technology, and one with a 6.1-inch LCD display. Even with fewer units sold, because of the higher ASP, or average selling price per iPhone, Apple would be able to rake in a higher revenue.

The iPhone X is followed by the iPhone 8 Plus, iPhone 7 and iPhone 8. The iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max will be starting from Euro 909 (approx Rs 76,000) and Euro 1149 (approx Rs 96,000) respectively.

The fix program does not include iPhone 8 Plus models, or any other models experiencing similar issues. AirPower has yet to be released, but current rumors indicate we will finally have a release date after Apple's event on September 12.
