Apple will announce new iPhone models at its annual September event. Rumors regarding this year’s iPhone models have been out there for months. Most rumors claim that Apple will unveil three new iPhone models this year, one of which includes an affordable model.
The cheaper iPhone model will sport a 6.1-inch display, but the device will stick with LCD panel this year. Apple’s move aims to achieve a lower price tag at launch. Besides, there will be an iPhone X Plus that replaces the current iPhone X.
The iPhone X Plus will come with premium features and high-end components. However, the device is not cheap out there as it may set you back around $1000 at this year. The iPhone X is the most expensive iPhone model ever released to the public. With the iPhone X, Apple has some daring changes like OLED display panel, glass-back design, Face ID, and notch.
According to the latest reports, the 2018 iPhone models will come with an 18W USB-C fast charger in the box. If this is the case, this year’s iPhone will feature wireless charging functionality this year.
Back in 2017, Apple first debuted wireless charging on its iPhone models. In reality, wireless charging is not something new on the market as it has been part of Android for years. The adoption of wireless charging allows you to charge up your device with a single charge.
The good news is that Apple will not be selling its 18W USB-C charger separately this year. With iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, Apple debuted a new pair of AirPods that replace its traditional earbuds. However, the new AirPods are not included in the box.
According to sources, Apple has begun producing the 18W charger for its 2018 iPhone models. However, the 18W charger will be exclusive to this year’s iPhone models. Apple’s new charger will be manufactured by Lite-On Technology, Artesyn, Delta Electronics, and Flextronics.
2018 iPhone models will make their debut in September. Apple has not specified when they launch to the public. Sources say that all three iPhone models will feature wireless charging and Face ID.
