iOS 11.3 Beta brings back 'iBooks' App

Analysts Q1 production of iPhone X as expected but Q2 numbers slashed

If Apple plans to do something interesting like offer the next-generation iPhone X at $899, or even $849, for the baseline model, then a $150 premium for the iPhone X Plus would price it around where the current iPhone X is. The report further highlights that due to the low demand of iPhone X Apple purchased fewer OLED panels from Samsung than it has commited.

In other news, Apple may soon launch a new color variant of the iPhone X - "blush gold".

While the development of these screens is still at an early stage, it would really hurt the competition if Apple were to achieve this; iPhone screens would all of the sudden outperform Samsung's screens, which have always had the edge.

As per Digitimes Research Senior Analyst, Luke Lin, the current iPhone X has a MBOM over US$400.

When Apple announced the iPhone X a year ago many were shocked about the $999 starting price.

New iPads: Supposedly, Apple is working on an updated iPad Pro models which would borrow the Face ID technology that is found on iPhone X. However, it might be possible that these might not hit until later this year if they are at all launched in 2018. "However, the project was shut mid-February and maybe eventually terminated".

Interestingly, Lin says Apple had previously planned to bring another LCD version of the 5.85-inch iPhone.

The video shows of a device, similar to iPhone X, but it appears to be smaller. The iPhone-maker now sources OLED panels from Samsung Display for the iPhone X. While the display on the iPhone X is extremely color accurate, it's still not quite ideal.

With all three 2018 iPhones featuring the facial recognition tech, it must be important for the company to ensure supply is strong as soon as possible, as for the 2018 cycle they will not have non-Face-ID models to hold people over in the interim, like they did with the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus a year ago. The 6.1-inch iPhone device will not get a dual camera nor 3D Touch, according to a previous KGI report.

Apple had also reportedly been working on MicroLED display technology at an R&D center in Taiwan but late past year it was reported that efforts had been scaled back at the center. That may not seem like a lot, but when you multiply it over the millions of phones that Apple will likely ship in this upcoming fall season, the iPhone 11 cost savings will be significant.
