Apple finds defect in iPhone 8, offers free repairs

  • The new Apple phone – dubbed the iPhone XS – which will come in a choice of 5.8-inch and 6.5-inch organic light-emitting-diode screens and be available in a never-before-seen gold colour

Journalists portal 9to5Mac got hold of the first official photo of the two new iPhone models in 2018.

We now know that the largest phone Apple is going to announce, at 6.5-inches, will be called the iPhone XS Max. It will have an OLED screen and it will come with a gold color option, according to 9 to 5 Mac.

Apple is expected to announce two new OLED iPhones as the successors to the iPhone X that was launched previous year.

However, Apple might have backed itself into a corner when it named last year's premium flagship smartphone the iPhone X, resulting in a weird and confusing name for this year's version. Regardless of where you live, the 6.1-inch LCD iPhone should cost the same as the iPhone 8 did when it launched. None of Apple's models offer microSD storage expansion though all three new iPhones are now eSIM capable. The iPhone Xs and iPhone Xs Max are expected to come in the usual three colour options.


Apple said that the iPhone X should be pronounced "iPhone Ten", but customers are still referring to it as the "iPhone Ex".

The hotly anticipated new iPhones are just around the corner and any little bit of information on them is likely to be pretty solid and close to the real deal.

iPhone XS Not to be confused with iPhone Excess, the next generation iPhone will be called iPhone XS, according to 9to5Mac. Since more than half of the Cupertino based tech giant's revenues are from the iPhone, this hesitancy to upgrade hurts Apple more than it hurts users. The Xs Max is also expected to feature a bigger battery than the smaller iPhone Xs.

Apple is apparently even considering dropping the "Plus" moniker from its biggest iPhone since this might create confusion between the 6.1-inch and 6.5-inch models. We don't have much longer to wait until we find out if this rumor is legitimate, as Apple is scheduled to reveal its 2018 lineup of iPhones on September 12. Ming-Chi Kuo, a respected analyst, has put together a chart which showcases all three iPhones and it also provides some technical details about them. The iPhone XS Max will start at £1099. Speculations have been made in the past about the 6.1-inch variant coming with dual SIM support. Especially if you are new to Apple smartphones or you had never used the iPhone X.
