Apple to Discontinue iPhone X When New Model Launches Later This Year

The Seoul Central District Prosecutors' Office said it has formally assigned the case to the intellectual property-related crime unit, Yonhap news agency late on Saturday. While he has a track record for sometimes getting Apple predictions right, something doesn't fit this time around.

Kuo likewise believes that Apple will replace the iPhone X with three new options that will sit in the flagship spot.

He added Apple will see about 5% iPhone growth in the first half of 2018, according to AppleInsider. Today, we'll look at that and other Apple Rumors for Monday.

Apple is reportedly planning to discontinue the iPhone X later this year; rather than keep it around at a lower price when the new model launches, according to KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo.

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

And maybe Apple's current naming conventions hold a clue, too. During the same quarter in the prior year, the business earned $1.50 earnings per share. equities research analysts predict that Apple will post 11.15 earnings per share for the current year. Nonetheless, iPhone X sales still matter for Apple as its every the revenue of an, as reported by Reuters late last month. Further, iPhone X supply was initially constrained at launch, though Apple did manage to ramp up supply much faster than analysts were anticipating.

So there you are, sporting a non-working Apple iPhone 6 Plus that by one reason or another, qualifies for a replacement unit through Apple. The iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus were both released in September.

Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) had its target price raised by Maxim Group from $193.00 to $204.00 in a research note issued to investors on Friday, January 12th, MarketBeat.com reports.

So where does the iPhone X fit into the 2018 iPhone line? In fact, it would probably put Apple in the awkward position of pricing last year's phone higher than its newer (but non-premium) iPhones. The projected weak iPhone X sales are not likely to have a negative impact on the overall growth of iPhone models in the market. Since it would take some time to restart production of the phone and battery, Apple will substitute the phone for the iPhone 6s Plus instead.
