Apple released one new iPhone every time till the launch of iPhone 5s in 2007. Tens of millions of Apple fans around the world would look forward to each year. Then, leading up to 2014’s launch, Apple seemingly saw that the magic was fading a bit.
Then Apple thought of launching 2 iPhones instead of one i.e. iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus. One would be on the smaller side for users who like phones to be manageable with one hand, and the second new iPhone would be a “phablet” with a much larger display. In 2018 Apple thought let’s launch not 1 not 2 but 3 iPhones this year and then they came up with iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X.
This year also it is expected that Apple will be launching 3 new iPhones. Most people who have purchased Apple’s iPhone X seem to love it at this point, but sales are expected to taper off in a big way during the next two quarters. Rather than an issue with demand, some analysts believe the high cost of the iPhone X is responsible for sales that are slowing much sooner than expected.
According to multiple reports from KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, the world’s most accurate Apple insider, Apple will also launch two larger iPhones that share the same design and features. One will be a 6.5-inch OLED “iPhone X Plus,” while the second is expected to be a 6.1-inch LCD iPhone model priced below the other two.
All three new flagship iPhone models are expected to be released this coming September. A fourth new iPhone may launch earlier in the year as an entry-level replacement for the iPhone SE.
