New iPhone XC pictures surface along with preorder and shipment dates

New iPhone XC pictures surface along with preorder and shipment dates

According to 9to5Mac, the slides give a price in Chinese Yuan for each of the three primary iterations of the successor to the iPhone X lineup, ranging from 5888 Yuan for the iPhone XC to 8388 for the iPhone XS Max. Previously, Apple used the "C" suffix to bring out the iPhone 5C as a low-priced model alongside the iPhone 5S.

The slide also refers to a 6.5-inch model as the iPhone XS Plus.

Instead of launching the Product (RED) edition iPhones half way through the product life cycle, Apple might be launching its red iPhone alongside all of the other models.

As a matter of cost cutting, the iPhone 9 will not be equipped with the OLED screen iPhone X got us used to, but with an LCD one.

The unveiling will take place on September 12 at the Steve Jobs Theater on the Apple Park premises in Cupertino.

With Apple poised to host their "Gather Round" on September 12, 2018, it seems likely that smartphone aficionados will finally be able to lay all of the speculation surrounding the latest iPhone models to rest. "We had expected worse iPhone X demand and some pullback in the stock - clearly neither of these two things happened", wrote Goldman analyst Rod Hall.

Apple’s new iPhones could come with dual SIM support

The iPhone XS is set to be the "headline" product, the smaller (and easier to hold) 5.8-inch handset that still chucks in all the top-end technology. Besides Apple's mainstream launches, a series of three iPhones might be announced: a larger version of the iPhone X, an updated one, and a cheaper one equipped with an LCD display and measuring 6.1 inches.

'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.

The dual SIM card tray will be backed by a capable modem, supporting dual 4G connectivity and covering China Telecoms various network types.

At the launch of the iPhone X, Apple CEO Tim Cook described it as "the biggest leap forward since the original iPhone". Apple may be tempted to delay availability of the LCD version to gauge demand for the more expensive largest new iPhone, Goldman's Hall said.

According to MacRumours, pricing for the devices have been leaked to be $900 (around R13 500) for the iPhone XS, $1 015 (around R15 300) for the iPhone XS Plus or Max, and $700 (around R10 500) for the iPhone XC.
