The most short-lived iPhone Apple has ever made? There are people who claim (including Apple) that it is really easy to get used to these new gestures but let's just accept the fact that its not a cup of tea for everyone. Thus, we estimate iPhone X will reach end-of-life (EOL) around the middle of 2018. No doubt, iPhone 8 launched with iPhone X is better devices having less price.

In a word: No.

Three new iPhones are expected to be launched in Autumn, two will come with OLED screens whilst the other will have a more conventional LCD screen.

Experts say the high price of the iPhone X - Apple's most expensive handset yet - and its "lack of interesting innovations" could deter many buyers.

You can already start to see the problem.

Apple is now embroiled in several lawsuits and government probes after admitting that older iPhone models get deliberately throttled after a certain period of usage is reached - which it says is a way for the software to contend with the natural degradation process of lithium-ion batteries. Apple's iPhone line will evolve again this fall, features from the current iPhone X will be in the new models, and at least some previous models will stick around for the budget conscious market-but that won't include the premium iPhone X. While the iPhone X does sport a 5.8-inch display, its actual surface area is less when compared to the 5.5-inch iPhone 8 Plus. It's believed that the new 5.8-inch OLED model will remain at a $999 price point while the 6.5-inch OLED model will cost around $1099. One of them would be a huge 6.5 inch phone, with a lovely OLED display just like the iPhone X while the other one would be sporting an LCD display measuring 6.1 inches.

Apple is likely to kill off its first generation iPhone X this year, before the company rolls out the next wave of iPhones in its 2018 lineup. The iPhone maker reported $2.07 earnings per share (EPS) for the quarter, topping the Zacks' consensus estimate of $1.87 by $0.20.

"We believe the worries around iPhone X demand have been greatly exaggerated", the GBH Insights expert explains.

So, no, the Notch hasn't ruined everything.

Apple is trying to boost the iPhone X sales by touting its various features. The total iPhone shipments would grow 10% YoY in 2018.
