Cheaper new iPhone to be called iPhone XC

The technology giant is reportedly set to introduce two updated versions of the iPhone X

Previous rumours have seemingly revealed that the more expensive, premium new iPhones will be called the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Plus, but the latest also reveals the name of the third device: iPhone XC. Apple is widely anticipated to unveil the 2018 iPhone lineup dubbed as iPhone Xs, iPhone Xr and iPhone Xs Plus. For the first time, it will be broadcast live on Apple's Twitter page (see below for instructions on how to watch).

Apple has scheduled a Special Event on September 12th in Cupertino, California. That squares with past iPhone rollouts.

China Telecom's teaser image states that the upcoming iPhone will support dual SIM cards on dual 4G networks. The new phones landed in stores a week later on Friday, Sept. 22.

Apple may throw a wrench in its usual iPhone naming scheme by using letters (and Roman numerals) instead of numbers. That would put those phones on track to ship by the September 21 date in iPhone Italia's report, which would likely be the same day the new phones hit stores.

Apple's biggest hardware event of the year is only a few days away.

According to reports, Apple is shifting its focus to iPhones with bigger screens to get more profit.

However, he suggested that more details would be revealed at the Samsung Developer Conference scheduled for November 7 and 8. The exec added that the development process is "complicated", but that the company has "nearly concluded" it.

According to MacRumours, pricing for the devices have been leaked to be $900 (around R13 500) for the iPhone XS, $1 015 (around R15 300) for the iPhone XS Plus or Max, and $700 (around R10 500) for the iPhone XC.

Analysts speaking to Bloomberg believe the XC could cost anything from £749-849 which would raise the price of Apple's cheapest smartphone.

Moreover, the report adds that Apple was even considering calling the rumoured "iPhone XC" as "iPhone Xr".

A larger version of last year's iPhone X with a almost 6.5-inch screen. However, in both cases, it's very hard to speculate on what the 6.1-inch iPhone with LCD screen will be called, though some rumours suggest that the affordable handset of the trio will be referred to as the iPhone XR. There are already several leaks about these upcoming Apple devices.

This year we should see an assortment of tech goodies for our phones, tablets, watches, etc.

The differences in the leaked images could also mean that while legitimate carriers appear to tease new information about the soon-to-be-released devices, there are still odds that some of these leaks are fake or merely based on speculations.
