Perhaps more interesting is Apple's decision to apparently go for the economy market.
The iPhone is expected to target business users who require a bigger display for spreadsheets and multitasking.
And it looks like Apple has found three is the magic number, with reports that a trio of new iPhones will be unveiled at Cupertino later this year. As such, the handset could cannibalize iPad sales. When Apple jumped from 4-inch iPhone to 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch models in 2014, the company saw an unprecedented super cycle where most existing customers rushed to Apple store to upgrade. It is also expected to feature the Face ID scanner and an A12 processor.
The iPhone X is also set to get an upgrade come this fall, according to the report. Bloomberg reports that the 2018 iPhone lineup will also include an updated iPhone X model, and a cheaper version that will serve as replacement to iPhone 8.

Apple also may be considering a gold color update for the iPhone X and the larger model.
According to a recent leak about the incoming iPhone X Plus, Apple is working on three different handsets that could make up for iPhone X's missed expectations. Still, Apple may ultimately decide not to proceed with the colour. Such a feature has been growing in importance and popularity, especially in Europe and Asia where businessmen routinely visit multiple countries. With the eSIM tech, smartphones can connect to the cellular data networks without inserting a traditional SIM card. A dual-SIM capability would provide a compromise.
The "biggest iPhone ever" would have a screen that measures 6.5 inches and is believed to be codenamed "D33" inside the company.
A third cheaper model, with an edge-to-edge display and Face ID, will follow in the footsteps of the iPhone 8 with an aluminium frame and glass back.
Apple released its first quarter results on February 1. The launches are still months away (they will likely come during September, October, or November, given Apple's past releases), so plans are still subject to change. However as Apple enters the mature phase, it needs more products to support its growth, and possibly with three phones, the company is looking to continue that growth. This design will allegedly work because of the edge-to-edge design being used.
