Apple might delay the release of the 6.1-inch 'iPhone Xr'

Speculation includes talk that Apple will introduce three new iPhone models Speculation includes talk that Apple will introduce three new iPhone models

Three days from now, the world - especially Apple die-hards - will be treated to the next batch of iPhones. While a smartphone which supports an additional SIM card slot might sound redundant to many living in the West, it's a highly practical feature in China that iPhone users have been asking about for years.

Note that the latter is practically at the Dh5,000 mark.

"This all-in approach will likely see the launch of an affordable specimen - touted as the iPhone XC - as well as a reboot to the iPhone X and a larger X model". It could also feature an OLED display. Out of the three, two are hinted to have OLEDs, whereas the one may have an LCD screen.

Additionally, a poster rumored to be from another top carrier, China Telecom, also points to dual-SIM iPhones.

In a surprising saga filled with twists and turns, players will get even closer to Greek mythology and the First Civilization. Weekly and daily "contracts" will be handed out, and players will have to track down an epic mercenary or ship to defeat.

Accordingly, the 6.1-inch version among the new Apple smartphones will not be called iPhone XS Light, but iPhone XC.

If the $699 expected starting price of the 6.1-inch phone holds up, then that translates to roughly Dh2,600.

Price wise, there are rumblings that Apple is planning to aggressively price its 6.1-inch iPhone model as a means to combat longer upgrade cycles.

You get the pattern, right? Apple's ultimate goal here is to provide current iPhone owners interested in upgrading the opportunity to pick up a phone with a brand new form factor with Face ID without necessarily having to break the bank in the process.

Toxic Waste Sites and Nuclear Plants Lie in Path of Hurricane Florence
More than 80,000 people were already without power as the storm began buffeting the coast, and more than 12,000 were in shelters. Spanish moss waved in the trees as the winds picked up in Wilmington, and floating docks bounced atop swells at Morehead City.

Now, here's where we'll get to answer our question above: if the 256GB iPhone X is at Dh4,965.50, then - yes - the 512GB is a sure-fire above-Dh5,000 device.

The iPhone 7 and 7 Plus have a difference of Dh420 between its 32GB and 128GB models. In fact, even the size of the iPhone XS Max may match that of 5.5- inch iPhone 8 Plus.

To be fair, listed prices in America are still subject to sales tax - anywhere between less than 1 per cent to over 10 per cent, depending which state you're in. It will be a little bigger or smaller than the iPhone 8 Plus. Quartz, meanwhile, reported that the iPhone X tops out at $1,455.23 (Dh5,346) in Hungary. Predictably, Apple hasn't been able to keep rumors about its next-gen iPhone lineup under wraps, which is to say we already have a pretty solid idea of what we can expect Tim Cook and co.to announce when they take the stage at the Steve Jobs Theater this coming week. It could also drop the 3.5mm audio jack adaptor, yet another reason to bring costs down. Over the past few weeks ago, we've seen reports claiming that the device will be available in 5 colors, with some of the possible options being white, black, yellow, red, bright orange, electric blue, gold, and even in pink. The iPhone XS Max is expected to come with a 6.5-inch screen.

If some of the allegedly leaked images on social media are to be believed, the next Apple Watch will feature a larger display and could also be slimmer than previous models.
