iPhone XS Release Date

iPhone XS Release Date

Apple released iPhone X and iPhone X Plus soon after Apple released iPhone XS in September and November 2018, but we've been looking for iPhone 2018 updates. In this bulletin we gather early rumors about the new iPhone that is anticipated to be launched in the season fall in 2018, whether they are known as iPhone 9, iPhone XS, iPhone XR, iPhone XS Max or iPhone simple.

iPhone XS

Apple's iPhone XS and XS Max are now available to order, with shipping kicking off on 21 September.

At the time of writing, all variants of both the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max have sold out on the Apple website, with shipping for all configurations now listed as 'one to two weeks'.

Pre-orders for the iPhone XR begin on 19 October before the handset starts shipping on 26 October. 

iPhone XS Release Date

Apple officially sold the inaugural trio of the 2018 iPhone in nearly 30 countries starting September 21 yesterday. For the Southeast Asian region, Singapore became the first country visited.

Each is named iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, and iPhone XR. iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max are the successors of the iPhone X which was released last year. The enhancements include the first A12 Bionic processor with a 7 nm architecture, a 12 megapixel (wide and tele) dual camera, and dual-SIM support. While the iPhone XR actually carries specifications and designs that are not too different. It's just that, this smartphone is priced cheaper, so there are several advantages of the iPhone XS and XS Max that are not found on this phone.

iPhone X New Design

iPhone X New Design

Apple is rumored to be releasing the latest generation iPhone X in 2018. According to information circulating from the Uncle Sam country, technology companies will release the latest version of the iPhone X with a more sophisticated design and a more powerful face scanning feature.

TrenForce analyst agencies predict Apple has prepared the 2018 edition of the iPhone X with a faster FaceID when scanning the user's face.

This means that the face scanning component of the latest iPhone X will be different from the FaceID component of the iPhone X in 2017.

The design update referred to also cannot be revealed further. To be sure, the latest iPhone X will still carry a bezeless design that is likely to be thinner, and wrapped with glass material on the back.
Apple is rumored to be releasing three iPhone variants this year. In addition to the regular edition of the iPhone X, there is also a larger iPhone X.

Apple is called to release two iPhones with OLED screens and one using LCD. For information, Apple's first smartphone that uses OLED technology is the iPhone X.

For this year's OLED iPhone, one of them will have the same screen size as the iPhone X, which is 5.8 inches. Another variant of the OLED iPhone will glide with a larger screen size of 6.5 inches.

The 2018 edition of the iPhone X is said to also come with a new 512GB internal memory option.

Apple itself thinks the focus on the latest iPhone in the second half of 2018 is optimizing various technologies in terms of performance, costs and adopting more iPhone portfolios, rather than bringing more significant technological changes to the latest iPhone.

Analysts also believe the OLED iPhone specifications for next year will most likely be the same as those of the iPhone X today.

The difference is the possibility only lies in the screen size and the support of two SIM cards for the iPhone 6.5 inches.

Sales of the iPhone X some time ago claimed to exceed expectations, but Apple repeatedly reportedly would cut the number of smartphone productions this year. One report said, trimming iPhone X production would not reach 50 percent, as previously reported.

A source from Apple's supply chain said production cuts were not as big as those reported recently. Earlier reports circulated, Apple plans to reduce iPhone X production by 50 percent because its sales are far from expectations.

Murata Manufacturing Co. is a supplier of various materials for smartphones made by Apple and Samsung. The Japanese company has not seen a decline in orders from Apple by 50 percent.
