Apple set to abandon iPhone X

Apple doesn't actually specify which iPhone 6 Plus models are eligible to get swapped with an iPhone 6S Plus.

The reason for this upgrade? Instead, iPhone X will probably disappear altogether, while a new set of two iPhone X-like devices will take its place.

Could the iPhone X become one of Apple's most short-lived smartphone?

But while the iPhone X - which costs between £999 and £1,149 - might be a bit of a Marmite smartphone, it's not definitely going to die off.

There were only 4.97 million Weibo posts mentioning the iPhone X so far in December compared to over 11 million for the iPhone 6 in the equivalent period in 2014, the analysis showed. One of them would be a huge 6.5 inch phone, with a attractive OLED display just like the iPhone X while the other one would be sporting an LCD display measuring 6.1 inches.

Nadal, Dimitrov, Wozniacki hold strong at Australian Open
One break point was enough for Nadal to clinch the third set, after fending off the two opportunities he faced. With this victory, Nadal secured the ATP ranking's top spot after the tournament, regardless of his results.


Discontinuing the iPhone X in its current form seems plausible, and is likely something Apple has been planning long before the phone shipped. According to reports, KGI anticipates that the company will announce a successor to the iPhone X that will have a slightly bigger display measuring 6.1 inches along with an "iPhone X Plus" with a 6.5-inch screen.

Many see the iPhone X as not having been as exciting for the consumer base as expected. The company has increasingly been the focus of bearish analyst reports amid concerns that iPhone demand is weakening.

iTunes Leak: A recent glitch at iTunes let some users download a movie much earlier than its release date, reports 9to5Mac. He says iPhone X production will wrap up in 2018, and sales may be lower than initially anticipated. It's just doing exactly what Tim Cook said it was meant to do: Lay the groundwork for the iPhone for the next 10 years.

Ming-Chi Kuo is right that iPhone X production will shut down, and it'll probably be in the summer.

The Sun has asked Apple whether the iPhone X will remain on sale throughout the whole of 2018, and will update this article with any response. We estimate these cuts could be between 2-5 million units for the March quarter. Doing so allowed Apple to address lower and more affordable price points, bolstering unit sales.
