The latest rumours about Apple's upcoming iPhones are here - here's what's new

In both videos there are a couple of mistakes or speculative assumptions about the iPhone names, as at this stage we really don't know what Apple plans to call the new devices following the iPhone X. There are a lot of different theories fighting it out right now. And the demand for this model was not very high. So, naturally, Apple may now be on track to steal some of Samsung's thunder with Apple Pencil support for future iPhone models.

All of them feature iPhone X-style design language, including the display notch and lack of a front physical key, with 3D face scanning, aka Face ID believed to be taking the place of Touch ID on all models. Well, the Apple Pencil is quite big.

Research firm TrendForce predicts that Apple will introduce three iPhones this year and will include a budget iPhone smartphone to take on China smartphone makers. Samsung unveiled that device last week to major fanfare. "It's debatable how usable it would be on the 5.8" model, but it could be nice to have on the 6.5" version. Apple will start the shipment of all three models in September and October as previously scheduled. TrendForce estimates its production share at 50% of the new series.

Apple will need to improve its cost structure to cope with the threats brought by Android brands. In order to maintain its profitability, Apple is said to bargain with its supply chain partners for cost reduction of components, especially the components that have been used in earlier generations of iPhone.

'we Made Incredible Mistakes' Mourinho
Mourinho failed to get a new central defender he craved, with his employers not prepared to spend any more money on that position. United have conceded four goals in their opening two games of the season - it took them nine to let in that many last season.

In 'no rush' to complete deal to rewrite NAFTA
Canada , the third partner in NAFTA, has been absent from face-to-face talks in recent weeks. The negotiations are about the recrafting of NAFTA in a way more favorable to all parties.

The 6.1-inch LCD version will reportedly boast Dual-SIM functions and will retail for around $699 to $749. Are you waiting for the new iPhones? Whether that involves wireless drawing power from the iPhone, magnetically attaching the Pencil to draw power, or some other method remains to be seen, but the Lightning connector needs to go.

It is assumed that the most affordable 6.1-inch iPhone will be a popular model this year.

Pricing will be tricky for Apple.

The premium OLED 2018 iPhones will have extra RAM, with memory going up to 4GB. Meanwhile, the 5.8-inch and 6.5-inch models will start at somewhere between $899 and $949. This might have something to do with the rumour that the iPhone 9 will feature dual-SIM support, which would be a first for the iPhone.
