This device is also expected to follow the iPhone X all-screen design, and use Face ID but offer such premium features at a lower price. Because AppleInsider, which picked up the iPhone Italia report, says it's confirmed the company in question is Apple's shipping partner in Italy.
According to the portal, the iPhone 2018 model would have at least two variants - iPhone XS and iPhone XC.
Apple's got a busy rest of 2018 to get through what with new iPhones, Macs, Apple Watches, accessories, and more in the pipeline before New Year's Eve. Dual-SIM support and new color options may be available to select customers. Neil Cybart of Above Avalon predicts the "standard" 5.8-inch iPhone XS will start at $949, with the new 6.5-inch model going for $1,099.
Either way, we don't have to wait much to know more about these new iPhones as we are just two days away from the launch event where Apple will reveal everything there is to know about these new iPhones.
While the iPhone Xr is expected to be the cheapest iPhone of the year, it could still cost comparatively higher than the regular iPhone 8 from last year, though.
Up until this week, I've had the new 6.1-inch iPhone mentally tagged as the iPhone XE, in reference to iPhone SE, which is the only moderately-priced phone Apple now sells.
Here we'll explain exactly how to tune into the September 2018 iPhone event from wherever you are in the world.
The iPhone XS and XS Max were both leaked earlier this month courtesy of 9to5Mac while images of what appears to be the back of the XC were shown on Twitter by Ben Geskin. Phones like the OnePlus 6 and the Galaxy S9 already support two SIM cards. And like Google's Digital Wellbeing, Apple will come up with "screen time" that will let you limit the amount of time you spend on a particular app and even set a bedtime for apps, which will block app notifications after a specific time. This smartphone will be powered by the company's latest A12 processor.
