Apple Set To Unleash 'Max' On The World On Tuesday

Apple Set To Unleash 'Max' On The World On Tuesday

While the 6.5-inch device will be a super-sized version of the regular iPhone X, the 6.1-inch handset is expected to be a lower cost device.

Rumours have been circulating for a while around the launch of three new iPhones: a 5.8-inch flagship model, a larger 6.5-inch version (both with fancy OLED displays) and a less expensive 6.1-inch handset with an LCD screen. However, it turns out that might not be the case after all.

In brief: Apple is reportedly considering dropping the Plus branding on its larger iPhone in favor of the Max moniker. Unfortunately, other than the name, this report doesn't include any additional information just yet.

I'd like to think that "Plus" sounds better than "Max", just by default, but apparently we're going to live in a world where the "iPhone excess" isn't bad enough, but now we can have maximum excess, too. Furthermore, the alleged iPhone 9 will come in three colour variants, namely Red, White, and Blue.

Apple is holding its "Gather Round" iPhone launch event on Wednesday September 12, 2018.

Instead, a recent report from 9to5Mac insisted the Cupertino-based company could be planning to call the device iPhone Xs Max.

The company is hosting the Apple Special Event at 10:00 am PDT (10:30 pm IST) on September 12 at Steve Jobs Theater in Apple Park. In addition, the new frame at the ends of the device will be made of unpainted aluminium, not stainless steel color casing as the iPhone X.


You can also watch on Apple TV, using an "Apple Events" app that will appear shortly before the start of the event.

"We expect the shift to a borderless LCD iPhone and the introduction of a larger OLED iPhone to drive solid pricing power in the fiscal 2019 iPhone cycle", they wrote.

Historically, September is one of the biggest months of the year for Apple-the month that the tech giant releases its latest iPhone models.

Meanwhile, Apple will try to attract fans with the LCD iPhone model as it will be very competitively priced.

But first, let's talk about that 6.5-inch OLED iPhone.

The three smaller differences in your iPhone XS vs iPhone XS Max decision making come down to the extra screen space, the bigger battery capacity (we assume this) and, in some countries, dual-SIM card support.

We've been expecting the iPhone 9 to cost around the same as the iPhone 8, starting at $699.
