‘iPhone Xc’ images leaked days ahead of launch

TODO alt text Rumored Leak Indicates Apple's New Entry Level Smartphone To Be Called iPhone XC, Per 'The Verge'

GameSpot's sister website, CNET, will have full coverage of the event, featuring several longtime Apple watchers and coming to you live from the Steve Jobs Theater in Cupertino, California. Apple is usually fairly prompt so don't be late.

"The bigger the device, the more people are getting out of it, and the more opportunity there is for Apple to generate money from them", Jennifer Chan, analyst with Kantar Worldpanel, told WSJ. While smartphone market growth has slowed, higher prices have helped Apple keep expanding and it has gained market share.

Apple's event comes with the global smartphone market largely saturated, without a major catalyst for sales ahead of a likely rollout of 5G, or fifth generation wireless networks, expected in 2019. Apple warned last week that this will raise prices for some of its popular offerings like the Watch and AirPods. The company recently released a cheaper version of the iPad in March for £319, and before that a refreshed second-generation version of iPad Pro in June previous year.

Over the past couple of months, we've been hearing some rumors about new iPad Pro models that would, allegedly, be announced alongside the this year's iPhone lineup later this month. The 6.1-incher replaces the iPhone 8, the 5.8-inch option is the follow-up to the iPhone 8 Plus and the 6.5-inch variant succeeds the iPhone X - in terms of pricing, at least.

Ajayi inspires Eagles to winning start against Falcons
The defence fed off that energy with a strong goal-line stand on the opening series, stopping the Falcons three times at the 1. With 7:41 remaining in the third quarter and the Eagles trailing 6-3, they were in need of a jump-start.

Apple is also expected to introduce a lower priced iPhone with some X features but a less expensive LCD screen.

The new phones will be "all display", meaning no buttons on the front - so it's pretty certain that you'll be unlocking your phone with your face if you buy any new iPhone in 2018. Bloomberg's Mark Gurman has also reported that Apple might launch two new iPad Pro models, without the home button.

"I think that in the long run the watch will be a much larger business than people give it credit for; where Apple can iterate and grow", Baker said. The slide also lists the Chinese prices for the phones, which 9to5Mac extrapolates to $699 for the iPhone XC, $900 for the iPhone XS, and $1000 for the iPhone XS Plus. This can go up if the large-screen assumption ends up being true and seeing as how there are natural benefits that come to using increased screen size, Apple might have a terrific plan set in motion. That means no 5G iPhone this year, or possibly in 2019, and I bet that no one is going to complain.
