apple iphone x (2017) rumors and news
Things may be a little different this year, as this is the 10 th anniversary of the iPhone.
It\'s rumored that we might see up to three models.
IPhone 7 S, 7S Plus and iPhone X (
The latter is expected to be an expensive, highly technical display phone that will be released as a celebration model.

A lot of this information is in the air, but what we hear is interesting to us.
Here\'s what we know about the iPhone X so far.
Despite being called the iPhone 8 in many rumors, the phone may appear with the iPhone 7S and 7S Plus at the end of 2017.
This may confuse 2018 of people, as the iPhone 8 will be more logical according to Apple\'s usual naming tradition.
Still, recent rumors suggest that while Apple may have been thinking about releasing 2017 of its phones, the company will wait for 2018. Why?
According to a research report, some supply chains have noted the technical challenges of manufacturing new equipment.
According to Business Insider, Deutsche Bank also claimed that Foxconn\'s sources only wanted Apple to order parts for the iPhone 7S and 7S Plus.
Apple may announce the new phone this year, instead of waiting for the 2018 release and starting shipping to customers in 2018.
Another considered name is reported to be the iPhone X. Cool, right?
This came from an anonymous source who spoke to Fast company and claimed that there would be 5 units of the device. 8-
Inch OLED screen made of stainless steel, nobezels and abody.
The glass of the old iPhone model may return and the familiar home button may disappear under the screen.
Even the volume and sleep/wake key can be touched-
It\'s a sensitive panel.
All of these new features can cost more than $1,000.
Apple has traditionally launched a new iPhone every year in September, but the latest report shows that the situation may be slightly different this year.
Bloomberg reported earlier that supply restrictions could delay the iPhone X to a month or two after the typical fall release.
Analysts believe that drexsell Hamilton\'s research, for the company, to obtain MacRumors, iPhone. May be delayed for a few weeks after September, due to the mission, its 3D-
It will still be available in time despite the holidays of December.
According to MacRumors, analysts said: \"This situation may improve because it is only in April . \".
\"Basically, our contacts think that customers can advanceOrder New 5. 8-
New 4-inch iPhone X. 7-inch and 5. 5-
September iphone; however, the 5. 8-
The inch iPhone X will not be delivered in a few weeks.
This coincides with previous reports from the Economic Daily that the new iPhone X will not be delivered until October or November.
Now, there is more reason to believe that we will have to wait longer than usual to see the latest iPhone.
According to a report by Apple analytics --
Pool width, some \"cutting\" that limits supply-
The edge components needed for the much-anticipated phone will delay the iPhone until October or November.
The company claims a \"major hardware upgrade\" for the iPhone 8, including its customized OLED display panel, customized Apple A11 10-
The newly designed 3D touch module and the Nano SoC of the 3D sensing camera are the reasons for the bottleneck.
This is not good news for Apple.
Delaying a few months could hurt Apple\'s sales, according to KGI, especially if competitors roll out early.
There is some disagreement about whether or not a total of three iPhone models will be released this year.
According to the new rumors released by China Science and technology blog in April 20.
Com, only two phones will be released this year.
\"It is rumored that Apple will release two iPhone 7 and one iPhone 8 (
Or iPhone version)
The blog post reads: \"model.
\"We can tell you today that this is not true.
We can only see two new models this fall.
What\'s really interesting is that there are rumors that the new iPhone 8 and the big screen iPhone 8 Plus will have similar dual cameras.
\"However, it is OK to bring a little salt. Micgadget.
When it comes to Apple and its plans, Com clearly has a fairly inconsistent record, and in the face of most other reports, this single report will definitely fly.
Still, there is another report that suggests that we may not be able to see three iPhones this year, although this one claims that the iPhone 8 will be late.
According to unconfirmed rumors from iPhone maker Foxconn, Apple will not be able to release the iPhone 8 on 2017.
Apparently, leaks inside Foxconn claimed that Apple had ordered only the iPhone 7s and the iPhone 7s Plus, although packaging materials for the phones were said to have arrived at the factory as early as June.
There have been rumors that Apple is charging wireless for future versions of the iPhone, and we now have more evidence to support these rumors.
According to a report from JPMorgan Chase, acquired by CNBC, Broadcom will provide wireless charging chips
It\'s a bit surprising considering previous rumors that Apple will develop its own wireless charging technology.
Broadcom is likely to simply make chips designed by Apple.
Just because it will use its own
This does not mean that third parties will not develop their own wireless charging accessories for mobile phones.
In fact, after Apple joins the Wireless Power Alliance, the popular wireless charger maker Powermat saidit will try to support any wireless charging standard used by the new iPhone.
Some reports indicate that the device will support Qi charging, while others suggest that it may use a modified version of Qi that is not compatible with the standard Qi charger.
Apple has at least five different teams working on wireless charging, Reuters reported.
The Wall Street Journal said on February that Apple will abandon the iPhone\'s Lightning port and support USB types instead --
C, industry standard connector for smartphones, laptops and Chargers.
It is not clear from the report whether Apple intends to replace the iPhone\'s Lightning port with a type
Port C, or if it will simply take the type-
C for the wall charger of the phone and keep the Lightning port of the iPhone x itself.
Another report from Ming, an analyst at KGI Securities
According to MacRumors, Chi Kuo claims that the iPhone will have a more expensive motherboard design that will allow longer battery life. The new logic-
The motherboard design will give the OLED iPhone a size similar to 4. 7-
But it can provide comparable battery life to 5. 5-inch iPhone.
Guo expects the iPhone x to have 2,700mAh L-shaped two-
OLED displays can also make devices more energy efficient --
High efficiency, which means its battery life may be better than the previous 5 years. 5-inch iPhones.
If the iPhone X is made to celebrate the 10 th anniversary of the iPhone series, expect Apple to make it look very, particularly logical.
There have been rumors over the past few months that the iPhone X will have a border --
The screen is reduced, which can lead to other changes in the overall design of the phone.
Our latest observation of possible designs is the Twitter leak, which shows a transparent housing with a large vertical camera cut in it, and the speaker cut out is very similar to the iPhone 7, and oversized sleep/wake key cover.
These aspects are matched with previous rumors about cell phones, but the source of the case is unclear, or whether the case is a prototype built based solely on leaked specifications --
This may end up being inaccurate.
For now, this is an interesting study to see how rumors shape our perception of the iPhone X, rather than solid evidence of the final design.
This is a photo of @ venyageskin1\'s \"CNC virtual unit\" posted on Twitter.
Geskin is also responsible for other iPhone X leaks.
The source has not yet been confirmed, but the virtual phone was apparently obtained from a Foxconn employee.
Such a device will be used in the design and development process, but it cannot prove the final design.
Other companies, such as those that make accessories, may also make this virtual phone based on rumored sizes, so don\'t use it as the final proof of future iPhone design.
According to reports, the screen occupies the front of the phone, but there are still 4mm baffles.
The image shows a dual front camera, front and rear glass, and a metal frame.
On the back is a vertical camera device, similar to what is seen in other rumors, with a larger power button on the side.
Presumably, the final version will be black, not the silver one seen here, which is visualized in the more attractive concept rendering created by Instagram user le. pich.
The picture is close to previous rumors, but in a report by iDropNews citing Foxconn employees, Apple is allegedly developing two different versions of the iPhone X at the same time, but only one version will be selected in the end.
It\'s not sure if what we see in these leaks will continue to be released.
The main difference between the two models seems to be the location of the Touch ID.
The company is moving forward-
Looking posal has a fingerprint sensor under the display, while a more conservative plan puts it behind, similar to many Android phones.
The version with the Touch ID at the bottom of the screen is said to have the same size as the iPhone 7, with 5. 8-
Inch OLED screen, covering the entire surface of the device, 4mm baffles per side.
The display matches the profile of the phone, has a large rounded corner, and also hides the frontfacing camera.
The report also mentions a large power button with two touchpoints, but does not clarify its purpose.
The rendering of the device is shown here.
What about the backup plan?
Apple\'s other rumored iPhone X has replaced those more ambitious features with more traditional ones.
The claimed schematic of this model appears on SlashLeaks, and they show a device that looks very similar to the LG G6, at least on the front.
The iPhone X will be bigger than the other one (
In each dimension, there are more obvious baffles and tops and bottoms, and there is a regular display that digs the rounded corners.
Larger baffle in front
Facing the camera can return to the current position along the top of the phone.
On the other hand, the Touch ID is downgraded to the middle rear below the Apple logo.
Both models seem to have a double arranged vertically. lens camera.
If Apple is having problems testing the iPhone X that it really wants to launch, or if the supply limitations of the fingerprint sensor and OLED display make it unfeasible, as one would guess, the backup plan can see a bright day.
Prior to this, a report from market research firm Cowen and Company suggested embedding the iPhone X\'s headphones, FaceTime cameras and Touch ID fingerprint sensors into the screen for seamless edgeto-
Edge front panel.
Apple may turn to the optical system of Synaptic.
The new Touch ID-based fingerprint reader calls it the \"only viable solution at the moment\" to detect fingerprints through a smartphone screen \".
But these designs pose a challenge for Apple\'s suppliers.
According to Apple insiders,
The touch screen IDsensor is low
At this low level, Apple may consider alternative designs if production problems cannot be solved.
We \'ve been hearing rumors for a while that the edges of the iPhone X will bendto-edge or bezel-
There are fewer screens with OLED technology.
However, this may change with the completion of the early development phase of the iPhone X.
Apple is testing a screen that covers the front of the device, according to Bloomberg.
It is reported that this will cause the display to be larger than the iPhone 7 Plus, but the overall size is closer to the iPhone 7.
According to anonymous sources who spoke to MacOtakara, after testing various models, Apple decided to adopt a flat OLED screen on the iPhone X.
The screen will be under a 2.
5D piece of glass, installed inside the stainless steel chassis, and a piece of glass on the back.
It may be bent.
Bloomberg reported that Apple is testing a Glass prototype that is slightly tilted before and after (
The new OLED screen itself is flat while the lid glass is bent into a steel frame).
The screen may or may not be curved, but most likely it will still be a borderless.
A picture created on Twitter by designer Benjamin Goldin shows the full look of the phone
The length screen, based on a sketch apparently made by a factory employee who understands the design of the iPhone X.
The screen extends all the way to the bottom of the front panel of the phone and the top border contains several sensors and a double
Camera Front lens.
There\'s another pair behind.
But this time it\'s installed vertically.
Many reports say Apple is still finalizing the design of the new iPhone, such as the one from Mac otakara. Mac otakara said that while there is a prototype without a home button, it may not end up being part of the final design.
The site then released another rumor about the subject, indicating that Apple has chosen the design that will go into the next phase of development.
A patent found by Apple insiders indicates that Apple has considered the front line.
Facing the sensor below the display.
Take a closer look and you can take a look at outU. S. patent No.
9,466,653, titled \"electronic device with display-
Integrated light sensor.
The reports confirm the rumors revealed by the bold fireballs john Gruber, one of the first to say that the iPhone X may also not have a border
This fits well with the idea of a glass.
The entire front of the device may be a huge display, and the Touch ID sensor will be embedded in the screen itself.
The New York Times also reiterated that the magazine\'s two anonymous Apple employees are from New York.
The Wall Street Journal confirmed other rumors about the iPhone X display, the home button, etc.
It is reported that the iPhone X will adopt a curved OLED screen similar to the Samsung Galaxy S8 device, and it will also cancel the physical home button.
It will be released with two other smartphones. Analyst Ming-
Chi kou agreed that the iPhone X could see the iconic home button and Touch ID sensor being eliminated while the \"virtual button\" at the bottom of the screen was eliminated.
The source for MacOtakara also said that the iPhone X will be in a so-
Along the bottom of the phone is called the ribbon.
The screen size of the new iPhone has been a subject of some debate, but it seems that most reports agree with the size of 5. 8 inches (
Like the Galaxy S8).
Previously, Nikkei asia Review hinted that the display would be changed to 5 inch, however, the store, known for its iPhone leaks, later changed in a revised report
According to Kuo, it is reported that there will be virtual buttons on the screen of the iPhone X. 8-
Inch OLED panel with a resolution of 2,800x1,242 pixels-
The Nikkei now agrees to the number.
He believes the phone \"will replace the current fingerprint identification technology with other biometric technologies.
Guo pointed out that the overall footprint will be comparable to four. 7-inch TFT-
Although the display size and battery life of the LED iPhone are much larger.
While returning to glass seems like a strange retro move for Apple, it will also open up possibilities such as wireless charging, which is almost impossible to achievemetal device.
In addition, Guo suggested that,
The final model of the iphone in the future may use stainless steel in their case
So, look to the world.
We\'re going crazy.
A rumor that is constantly emerging is the possible use of organic LED (OLED)
Screen on IPhone X.
OLED screens can provide a deeper black color, usually thinner than LCD, which Apple has used before on Apple watches.
AMOLED is a different type of OLED that Samsung and many other manufacturers have been using on Android smartphones for years.
The possibility of using OLED on the iPhone is growing, thanks to a April report by nikkei and Bloomberg that said Apple ordered 70 million to 100 million OLED panels from Samsung.
According to the publication, the Korean company will be the only producer of the screen of the device.
Nikkei attributed the news to one of Apple\'s suppliers and said Samsung could produce up to 95 million panels for the new iPhone by the end of 2017.
Still, Apple is reportedly testing curved and flat OLED and LCD panels at the beginning of its March.
According to a report from macrumorscing Barclays bank, the display can be not only OLED, but also real shades.
The only device Apple has to display the real tone is 9. 7-inch iPad Pro.
Depending on the ambient light, the real tone basically changes the white balance of the display.
If you are in a room with an orange bulb, the screen changes a little bit to match the scene.
This is very similar to the night shift, which adjusts the color to extinguish the blue light at night.
Apple\'s Touch ID technology can also be improved to complement the border-
Because it can be replaced by a facial recognition system, there are fewer devices.
As the technology faces many technical challenges, the company may use a combination of fingerprint and facial recognition techniques.
If the iPhone has an OLED screen, it could be expensive, possibly more than $1,000.
According to The Wall Street Journal, the production costs of these exhibitions are high.
However, the same report points out that Apple may be completely opposed to the OLED model.
There is a precedent for 180 of sales: last year, the global shortage of sapphire glass forced Apple to give up raw materials for the iPhone 7.
Apple upgrades the processor of the new iPhone every year.
Like 7S and 7S Plus, the iPhone X is likely to get a new A11 chip.
According to DigiTimes, the chip will use 10-
Nano-manufacturing processes like Qualcomm\'s Snapdragon 835 and Samsung\'s Exynos 8895.
This chip should be faster than the critics Fusion processor, which is hailed by critics as the best mobile phone processor.
According to the Economic Daily, the new report indicates that the new A11 chip will be put into production soon, which pointed out that Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC)
The production of new A11 chips will begin in April and plans to produce 50 million chips by July.
Not only that, it is reported that the company will also produce 100 million chips by the end of 2017.
In fact, iPhone sales are expected to reach astronomical numbers of 220 to 0. 23 billion units.
To meet this demand, ADI, Broadcom, Cirrus Logic, Cypress, NXP, Qualcomm, Italian semiconductor and TI will reportedly produce apple chips.
According to data from China research firm Trendforce, the upcoming iPhones will have a lot of in-house storage as they may have 64gb and 256gb configurations.
Apple also wants to build its own graphics processor for the iPhone, although we may not see the technology until later.
The camera has always been a powerful feature on the iPhone, so what do we know about the iPhone X?
For the front camera, Apple\'s test dual lens.
The company uses Sony\'s camera components, according to Bloomberg. A dual-
The rear camera of the IPhone 7 should be on the rear camera, but it may turn the direction to the vertical layout.
According to MacOtakara, this has been seen in several rumor-based schematics.
In later rumors, the site said the cameras may have similar features to the existing iPhone 7 Plus, but added that the vertical layout may be intended to be better inside VR headsets
There are also rumors that the iphone X will have two things in common with Microsoft\'s depth --
Sensor Kinect sensor
According to the report released by Apple analyst Ming
The upcoming iPhone front camera, Chi Kuo, has a \"revolutionary\" infrared sensor that senses three
The dimension space in front of it.
It is said that its goal is to take selfies.
The front sensor combines depth information with 2D images for face recognition with a Touch ID, Guo said.
It can be used to replace the head of a video game character with the user\'s head, or to generate a 3D selfie that seamlessly integrates with a VR application.
The technology was developed by PrimeSense, the company behind Microsoft Kinect;
Apple is likely to open these 3D scanning capabilities to third parties.

The camera can also be used to power the iris
Sensor technology like Samsung galaxy s8.
According to the Korea Economic Daily, Apple is working with LG to create a double
Camera module that allows 3D photography.
And the 3D patent before Apple
Object and gesture recognition, it is not clear whether the upcoming iPhone will put these patents into practice.
IPhone 7 plus julian Chokkattu/Digital TrendsSources told Bloomberg that Apple tested an ambitious prototype with a slightly curved front edge and steel frame, but starting in 2007, the top and bottom of the back of the glass have a more dramatic curve, just like the iPhone design.
However, the supply problem may prevent the company from shipping.
According to Apple, the \"backup\" design is a simple frame with aluminum on the back and a slightly larger size.
KGI Securities analyst
Chi Kuo suggests that Apple can try the glass, ceramic or plastic back on the iPhone X.
But new experts suggest that Apple should adopt a stainless steel frame.
If the reply from digitime sis is true, it will mark the reply from the Apple material
It was last used for the iPhone 4 s.
Subsequently, MacOtakara cited anonymous sources familiar with the project, rumored to have a stainless steel chassis with glass in front and back.
The metal used may be the evolution of the metal used on the Apple Watch.
The IPhone 7 is the first device in the iPhone family that can be underwater for 30 minutes.
Of course, there are rumors that Apple will go a step further on the next-generation iphone, raising the IP rating from IP68 to IP68 and in line with the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge and Galaxy s8.
The rumor came from the Korean Herald, which quoted \"multiple sources \".
\"To be fair, most people hardly notice the difference. The IP68-
