Apple: Consumers Will Pay up for Big Screens

According to Apple's press release, if the phone has damage which impairs the ability to fix the phone, such as a cracked screen, that issue will need to be resolved prior to the service. We have come to know up to this point that all three variants of the device will be pretty much the same, which includes the notch at the top.

We've been expecting the iPhone 9 to cost around the same as the iPhone 8, starting at $699. But since Apple is secretive about the upcoming iPhones, most of what we know is speculation. As of now, it is being said that both the premium category iPhones will be called as iPhone XS. This year, the OLED iPhones will possibly be called iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max, according to a new report by 9to5mac.

An image purported to be of the 6.1-inch LCD iPhone was uploaded to Slash Leaks in early August by user Mikelagore, though there is no way of verifying its authenticity.

Is this the forthcoming 6.1-inch iPhone?

Swedes weigh choices before vote likely to boost far-right
The Sweden Democrats have been championing closed borders for years and want to severely restrict immigration and integration. The four-party Alliance has however rejected his offer, urging him to step down and make way for them to form a government.

We have also seen online sources publish rumors about potential new colors for the new iPhones.

Apple is expected to launch its iPhone 2018 lineup at a special event scheduled for September 12 at the Steve Jobs Theater in Cupertino, California. Reportedly, new iPhones will have an edge-to-edge display with slim bezels, Face ID and no home button. It is expected to have the same notched screen on iPhone X. The images also show a bit of the bottom edge of the phone with a Lightning jack and speaker grilles. There are also reports that Apple could get rid of the 3D touch which was introduced with the iPhone 6s. It should be no surprise; last year's innovative iPhone X was the first major leap forward from Apple in ages, and building on that innovation, it stands to reason that these phones will be costly.

OK, battery life: not one of Apple's strengths. However, a new report by 9to5Mac suggests that Apple might ditch the Plus branding and instead call the rumoured 6.5-inch OLED iPhone the "iPhone XS Max". The A12 will offer better performance and energy efficiency than its predecessor. This will be more like an iPhone XS Plus. The device will sport a tall 6.5-inch OLED display, and come with gold finish on the sides. We'll have to wait and see what Apple goes with next week.
