IPhones may rise 20%, if Apple gives in to Trump’s pressure

This year, we already know we're going to see two updated (and new sized) versions of the iPhone X, as well as the Apple Watch Series 4, but will Apple bring any other goodies to the party?

Nothing has been confirmed by Apple, but 9to5Mac has shared tons of details about the new iPhones, including a new second-gen 5.8-inch model and rumors of an updated Face ID and improved rear camera.

Along with two pricey, high-end iPhones, Apple is expected to release a lower-cost device with a 6.1-inch LCD display.

Apple's XC is rumoured to have a slightly less flash LCD screen which is pretty big at 6.1-inches.

Many have asked if Apple will unveil dual SIM iPhones at its September 12 event.

Since, the event's invitation has a gold circle that looks similar to its Apple Park campus, it serves a hint that there will be a gold version of the iPhone XS and XS Plus. The hardware maker is expected to introduce a ton of new hardware on Wednesday, ranging from new iPhones to Apple Watch smartwatches. What's even more interesting is the fact that Apple could be taking away its 3D Touch technology on the 6.1-inch iPhone Xr, potentially replacing it with a completely software-based solution.

China Telecom's teaser image states that the upcoming iPhone will support dual SIM cards on dual 4G networks. A more understandable name would be the iPhone Xc since that ties back to the iPhone 5c and tells people the handset is cheaper and more colorful. The current and updated iPhone X that is set to be unveiled September 12 boast OLED screens, but if you're looking to save money, but still retain numerous features of the iPhone X, the cheaper version may be something to consider if you're looking for a worthy upgrade. The larger iPhone Xs Max could approach $1,200, a price comprable to Samsung's latest phone, the Galaxy Note 9, which starts at $1,000 and costs $1,250 for the 512GB model.

Although less likely, Apple may also launch new versions of its iPad Pro range. Reports around what to expect from Apple's event has been making rounds of the internet since the beginning of this year.

The Apple Watch has been a slow burn for the company, but has steadily grown in sales becoming a small but important part of Apple's sales shipping 3.5m devices in Q2 2018 according to data from Canalys, but still dwarfed by the 41m iPhones shipped in the same time period.

Sources say that Apple is planning to announce three iPhone models this year, including iPhone XS, iPhone XS Plus, and a cheaper iPhone model. A year ago reports believed that we'll see an iPhone Pro, but these never materialized.
