Apple: BlueFin Slashes iPhone Estimates for 2018; 'Challenging' Environment

EXPRESSThe scam e-mail tries to trick users out of their login for iTunes iCloud and the App Store

Apple recently sent out invites to an event, where the company is expected to announce new products and services. It would seem that Apple didn't kick off the production of the iPhone X until late August, which made it impossible for the device to be ready on time for a mid-September release.

Credit: Tom's GuideThe follow-up to last year's iPhone X could be considerably cheaper to produce than its predecessor, Digitimes is reporting, citing people who claim to have knowledge of the costs associated with producing the handset.

Lin also states that Apple planned on launching an LCD version of the 5.8-inch iPhone.

In other news, Apple may soon launch a new color variant of the iPhone X - "blush gold".

Apple has slashed the production cost of its new "affordable" 5.85-inch OLED iPhone X, with an initial manufacturing bill of materials (MBOM) significantly lower than its current flagship model.

"...the new device's MBOM will be more than 10 percent lower than that for iPhone X. He added that the MBOM of the iPhone X was more than US$400 in 2017".

When Apple launched the iPhone X in September a year ago, it was (and still is) the most expensive iPhone ever.

Apple is reportedly planning to launch three iPhones in 2018, much like what the company had done previous year at its Keynote event.

In terms of screen size, rumors say that the iPad Pro 3 will likely have a much larger screen display of 11 inches in line with Apple's current design trend, which employs larger touchscreens and narrower bezels. Screen makers like Samsung Electronics Co., Japan Display Inc., Sharp Corp., LG Display Co. and Synaptics Inc. are among those that will be adversely impacted if Apple takes away its business for in-house development.

However, it looks like Apple may launch a 5.8-inch OLED display iPhone at a cost reportedly "much lower" than the iPhone X. We could see Apple displays used in the Apple Watch, iPhone, iPad, and maybe even MacBooks in the future, but there's one big problem: MicroLED is extremely hard to manufacture. But there's still no confirmation as to when will Apple employ its own displays on its iPhones. The jump sized iPhone could have a 6.5-inch display and a resolution of 1242 x 2688 pixels. Lin also suggested that the 5.85-inch OLED model might very well be the upgradation of the canceled LCD project, modified due to MBOM concerns. While the display on the iPhone X is extremely color accurate, it's still not quite ideal.
