Apple Could Be Planning To Make The Biggest iPhone Yet

Apple's Short Interest Rises 7 Million Shares, but Does It Matter?

It, too, will use OLED technology and could include a resolution of 2688 x 1242 (at least that's what Apple's now testing). This news comes from a Bloomberg report by Mark Gurman, whose reporting has been proven as reliable over many years.

In any case, Apple really needs to step it up this time, especially with the iPhone X performing poorer than the company expected.

The larger version will retain the Face ID scanner to unlock the device and make payments.

Apple is planning to launch its biggest iPhone yet this year. Now that there are two similar reports by people who tend to have a good track record on Apple's plans, it looks like we'll see three new iPhones before the year is out.

What remains unclear is whether Apple will also cut any current iPhone models from its lineup. The current iPhone X has a 5.8-inch screen.

Perhaps more interesting is Apple's decision to apparently go for the economy market. If you've grown used to holding a Plus, you'll be able to handle the the extra-sized X. For comparison, the Samsung Note 8 has a 6.3-inch screen, and there are many, many tablets on the market with a 7-inch screen.

Falling on the higher-end of Apple's models, it is expected to be powered by new A12 processors and retain much of the iPhone X's hardware including its OLED screen and steel edges. Knowing what we do about iPhone sales, it's not surprising that Apple is hoping to boost sales by making an affordable iPhone with numerous bells and whistles of the high-end model.

But Gene Munster, a co-founder of Loup Ventures, believes that by offering an iPhone with the largest screen yet, Apple could kick-start its phone sales. Apple reportedly tried to offer a gold option for the iPhone X, but because of problems with production, they canceled it.

Finally, the most drastic new iPhone X would feature a bigger body (oh boy) about the size of the iPhone 8 Plus.

Lastly, the report says that the company is reading iOS 12 update that will bring " upgraded augmented reality capabilities, deeper integration of the Siri digital assistant, digital health monitoring and the ability to use Animojis in FaceTime".

To keep costs down, the cheaper phone will use LCD screen technology similar to the type employed in the iPhone 8.
