Apple's 2018 iPhones: Naming, specs, price, launch and availability

Apple's 2018 iPhones: Naming, specs, price, launch and availability

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. The 5.8-inch OLED option is said to be named "iPhone Xs" (that's "10 s"), while the 6.1-inch LED model's monicker remains unclear; it could be the "iPhone 9" to make up for continuity, or something else.

There's a super-sized price coming along with it as well though - the iPhone XS Max is likely to cost €1149 in Europe, which is, well, loads.

The consensus expectation is that the new LCD iPhone will be priced between US$699 and US$749, Goldman Sachs analyst Rod Hall wrote Friday in a note to investors. Reports around what to expect from Apple's event has been making rounds of the internet since the beginning of this year. Just last week, reports popped up indicating that new 6.5-inch iPhone - the largest of the three - will be called the iPhone Xs Max, with Apple dropping the "Plus" moniker entirely for 2018. The leak does not reveal if the phone would be based on the iPhone X concept, therefore there is no confirmation on the screen notch.

"The bigger the device, the more people are getting out of it, and the more opportunity there is for Apple to generate money from them", Jennifer Chan, analyst with Kantar Worldpanel, told WSJ.

The Apple event starts at 6pm on Wednesday. Stay tuned on Phone Radar for more details!

Apple is launching three new iPhones this Wednesday, the iPhone XS, the XS Max...and the iPhone...something or the other.




A new Apple Watch, AirPods and Apple Mac are also expected to be announced at the event this week.

This year, Apple is expected to unveil three new fully redesigned smartphones, as there was not much difference between the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus and their predecessors.

We are hoping to hear more about the platform though, as - unlike iOS 12 - there's been no WatchOS beta for the eager to try.

We already know what the Apple Watch Series 4 will look like, with narrower bezels. A new one has been caught by Slashleaks, showing the leaked website for iPhone 9.

New MacBook: The company is preparing a new lower-cost laptop with a 13-inch Retina display to succeed the MacBook Air.

Historically, Apple has run a very tight ship when it comes to containing leaks, but things have changed slightly in more recent times.
