Apple has three iPhones on the way but struggled to name them

Users can expect an upgraded version of the 10th anniversary iPhone X, equipped with a 5.8 inch OLED screen, as well as a new high-end iPhone with a 6.5 inch OLED screen, the largest display even in an iPhone.

Apple's big iPhone launch event is less than a month away and new details have surfaced about what the tech giant may have in store for the next iteration of its flagship device. The 6.1-inch iPhone believed to be the new entry-level model in the trio will not support 3D Touch, it's been said, whereas the other two models - a second-generation iPhone X and a new iPhone X Plus - will keep the technology. Also per The Verge, and as we likewise have reported in keeping with the crush of iPhone reports and leaks we've been digging through, Kuo has a note out saying that none of the new iPhones will support the Apple Pencil. In a way, the third new iPhone will be similar to the iPhone 5C, but it won't be made of plastic.

Ives says, "The new phones "will help capture the underlying demand [for] upgrades among customers that have chose to bypass the ... cycle this time around, with price points and features that catalyze fence-sitting iPhone customers onto their next smartphone".

No new 9.7-inch iPad makes sense because that model was released in March. The least expensive of the three, the phone will have a 6.1-inch screen. It also can be used to more easily perform other tasks. The average price of iPhones sold in Apple's most-recent quarter was $724, up 19 percent from a year earlier.

Apple will reportedly launch three new iPhones in September. The company will be selling three phones that look similar and all have Face ID.

The company has apparently changed the name several times during planning, with the "iPhone Xs" being a contender. Bajarin sees the top two new premium phones in the $1,000 range.

The Watches will look similar to current models, but will include larger screens that go almost edge-to-edge.

He also predicts that the 6.1-inch LCD iPhone and the 6.5-inch OLED iPhone will ship in both single- and dual-SIM variants, depending on the region.
