Apple to launch three iPhone X-inspired models in 2018, report claims

Apple to launch three iPhone X-inspired models in 2018, report claims

If the iPhone X is subjected to sudden temperature drops - say, a transition from a warm house and into cold streets - this causes display to become unresponsive.

Apple never discloses iPhone sales on a model-by-model basis but chief executive Tim Cook said that the iPhone 8 has "gotten off to the fastest start of any Plus model", which has come as a "bit of a surprise" to the company.

If you haven't heard about the Apple iPhone X, which is the tenth-anniversary smartphone from Apple, which offers a 5.7-inch QHD+ OLED display with the bezel-less design.

Apple claims to have used the most durable glass cover on the iPhone X, but a drop test by CNET showed us how the iPhone X's back glass cover cracked from a drop from just the hip height (3 feet), the usual place where trousers pockets are. The iPhone 8 handsets look remarkably similar to the two-year-old iPhone 6 models, with little distinction aside from some incremental upgrades to the camera and storage size. Having had my iPhone X for less than 24 hours, here are my first impressions of the phone that could very well usher in a new generation of mobile technology.

Apple is also said to be working on a 6.5-inch iPhone with a design like the iPhone X but with a bigger OLED screen. The problem persists when users tries any kind of audio playback at high volume, be it for phone calls, music, videos, alarms and ringtone. Users have also noted that rebooting the phone does not fix the issue.

The iPhone X comes with a double speaker front-facing earpiece which combines with the speakers at the bottom of the device to deliver stereo sound.

The three new models will drive a "real super-cycle in terms of iPhone replacement demand", the analyst writes, predicting 100-120 million iPhones assembled in the second half of 2018. And while Face ID has proven secure in testing, it may not be as infallible as initially claimed.

Our advice to prospective iPhone X buyers is simple: Get the screen guard along with the shell cover during purchase of the device.
