Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) is reportedly working on three iPhone models. According to reliable sources, the release of the new devices will serve as a commemoration of the company’s 10th anniversary. The three, however, will not be at the same level in terms of design. One of them is said to sport an updated design alongside an advanced camera while the other two will just sport minor upgrades.
Rumor the two will use the same 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch IPS screens. However, it is not clear whether or not they will have much difference from the existing iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus models. It is also worth noting that the company’s 2016 offering was an upgrade of 2015 iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus.
The higher-end model with a dramatically different approach
The heavily rumored model christened iPhone 8, iPhone X, or iPhone Edition will have a different approach altogether. Apparently, the three are likely to be revealed at the same time but according to a report by Bloomberg, the redesigned model would not be shipped immediately. The company is not diverging into details of the new report despite the fact that it just five months to its September-ish reveals.
However, suggestions going round indicate that the redesigned device could feature TouchID sensor, which would be integrated into the display glass, a camera bump. It is also expected to use curved glass on the front and back. Nonetheless, there is no certainty into all these chitchats because the technology giant has remained tight-lipped on the apparent change.
But Apple might experience trouble with the supply of the new handsets
The release of three devices by Apple is a shift of its two-phone strategy, which it has applied since the release of iPhone 6 and 6 Plus in 2014. Nonetheless, the “three iPhone” strategy has been regarded as unreliable and an odd way for Apple.
However, the iPhone maker may have trouble in meeting the demand for the new handsets. Bloomberg cites that it may only be able to offer a limited number of units. Nevertheless, there is no response to this from the Cupertino-based giant. In the meantime, Apple’s stock closed at $141.20 a fall of $0.63 or 0.44%.
