Apple will has strategies to stop the existing iPhone X model once the business presents its 2018 iPhone lineup later on this fall. The news comes thanks to reputed expert Ming Chi-Kuo who relays that Apple’s next-gen iPhone lineup will include 2 brand new gadgets with edgeless displays, one being 6.5-inch iPhone with an OLED display and the other a 6.1-inch iPhone with an LCD display. The present 5.8-inch iPhone X, on the other hand, will be discontinued.Following up on his initial financier note, Kuo launched a new tech report today which sheds a bit more light on Apple’s strategy here. As Kuo information, Apple is of the mind that if the existing iPhone X is available at a discount, it would eat into sales of Apple’s brand new devices.Kuo’s note reads in part: iPhone X would injure item brand name value & lineup of 2H18 new designs if it continues to cost a lower rate after 2H18 brand-new models launch &: Decreasing iPhone X’s rate after the 2H18 new models launch would be an unfavorable to item brand name worth provided 3D sensing and OLED screen are functions of the brand-new high-price model. In addition, to sell iPhone X at a lower rate might have a negative influence on deliveries of the brand-new 6.1 ″ LCD iPhone in 2H18. Thus, we estimate iPhone X will reach end-of-life(EOL) around the middle of 2018. At this moment, it remains unclear exactly what Apple’s 2018 iPhone lineup is going to appear like. Presumably, a next-gen variation of the present
5.8-inch iPhone X will be released together with the previously mentioned 6.5-inch model, which will likely be positioned as an iPhone X Plus. It also stays unclear exactly what will come of existing iPhone models that still incorporate Touch ID. Given Apple’s penchant for having different iPhone designs at a variety of cost points, we need to envision that the iPhone 7 will remain as a budget-friendly alternative for users aiming to save some cash or who still aren’t all set to welcome Face ID. By the way, there are rumblings that Apple in simply a couple of months will launch a revamped version of the iPhone SE.As a final point of interest, if reports about the existing iPhone X being end-of-lifed next year pan out, it would mark the first time in iPhone history that a previous year’s model was not provided at a less expensive price point once next-gen designs are launched.
