Shares in technology company Apple are trading at an all-time high due in part to market speculation about three new iPhones to be released in September.
Experts are suggesting that the three new phones will be the iPhone 7s, iPhone 7s Plus and the iPhone X. While the iPhone 7S and iPhone 7s Plus will fill a void in the market, the real excitement surrounds the iPhone X (effectively the iPhone 8).
The iPhone X is expected to bring Apple’s flagship product in line with the best technologies currently available. An upgraded screen with organic, light-emitting diode (OLED) technology, a virtual home button to enable a deeper screen as well as screen width extensions to wrap around the sides of the phone similar to the latest Samsung products are all expected features of the iPhone X.
The most convenient improvement expected to be included with the iPhone X is wireless charging. Users simply place their phone down on a charging pad and the iPhone begins to charge, no plugs required.
With the newest technologies come a big price tag. Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo is predicting the iPhone X to cost more than $1000 US just for the basic model.
What do you think? Will you be looking to upgrade to the iPhone X if all of these predictions become fact? Or are the iPhone X upgrades simply luxuries you don’t need, nor can afford?
