In contrast to last year's reports for the iPhone X, this time around some unreasonable speculation has remained for the naming of the three iPhones. It'll also come in gold, adding to the gray and silver versions from past year. Those being the "cheap" LCD iPhone, the "regular" iPhone X successor, and the large iPhone Plus replacer.

This is not the first time Kuo has predicted a delay in the 6.1-inch iPhone.

But what Apple probably takes up with the C is the somewhat greater color variety, even if it is less colorful than with the iPhone 5C.

"A recent report from Apple blog 9to5Mac claimed that the 6.5" OLED iPhone will be named the 'iPhone Xs Max'. Last year, the lowest-spec iPhone X retailed for $999 in the United States, but R20 499 here. That said, there's also a chance that the support for two SIMs will only come to one of the three devices and that could mean Apple might be limiting such a feature to its standard iPhone XS.

Apple warned on Friday that it may have to raise its prices further if the U.S. goes ahead with whacking an import duty of £153bn ($200bn) worth of Chinese goods including the Apple Watch and the contested AirPod headphone accessories. Today, Bloomberg is reporting that the cheaper 6.1-inch LCD iPhone could be called the iPhone Xr - with the "r" likely standing for "regular".

Fortunately, most of the technical details one can think of have been unleashed as well, although the aforementioned web page is no longer available right now. A redesigned version would be needed for these new models.

The most exciting aspect regarding the next-gen Apple Watch is that it will usher in the most significant redesign to the device since its inception.

The Apple Watch is 3 years old and ready for a light refresh. The leak has also revealed the pricing of all the three iPhones.

Revamped iPad Pros: Apple is planning two new iPad Pros for this year with slimmer bezels and Face ID instead of the home button and fingerprint sensor.

AirPower Wireless Charger: This is Apple's charging pad that can simultaneously charge an iPhone, Apple Watch, and AirPods without plugging them in.

The forecast comes after a Saturday tweet from Trump urging Apple to avoid tariff costs by increasing domestic production.
