Now analysts have confirmed that in the third quarter of 2018 the iPhone X and iPhone SE will begin to halt their earnings.

Apple is gearing up for the launch of its new iPhones and the market suggests that the company might soon discontinue its current flaghsip iPhone X and the cheaper iPhone SE this year.

"It's worth noting that Donovan and Mullane do not appear to cite any sources behind their prediction, so their guess is as good as anyones".

The analysts refer to the three 2018 iPhones as iPhone 9, iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Plus, which are extremely unrealistic names, especially the "11" part.

Shares of Apple, which usually launches iPhones in the second half of the year, fell 2.2 percent to $189.20 (roughly Rs. 12,800). That's according to a new report by research firm BlueFin Research Partners.

The upcoming iPhone X could be slightly bigger than the original iPhone X and may feature a 6.1-inch display with a notch at the top. The iPhone SE will follow it. We've heard before that the iPhone X won't be kept in stock for one more year, and that makes plenty of sense considering that a replacement is en route. It's not Apple's fastest phone.

A smartphone case maker out of New York, Ghostek has leaked a design render of a smartphone case which shows an iPhone with a single rear-mounted camera and a display panel with a notch which looks same as the one found on the iPhone X. Apart from the handsome case, what is also worth noting is that the phone follows the iPhone X design pattern yet it is rumored to be relatively cheaper. I keep my phone in Low Power mode nearly constantly simply because I don't need the higher clock speed on the SoC and it has such a positive impact on endurance.

Apple Inc designs, manufactures, and markets mobile communication and media devices, and personal computers to consumers, and small and mid-sized businesses; and education, enterprise, and government customers worldwide. The 3D facial recognition system will help Apple liberate the space from the bottom chin like the iPhone X. On the other hand, the iPhone 9 is likely to meet the requirements of the budget conscious users who have the urge to use an iPhone.
