Ming-Chi Kuo is back again. Widely regarded as “the bestApple AAPL +0.63% analyst on the planet”, the KGI Securities analyst has revealed Apple will make a massive cancellation to its new iPhones in 2018…

In a report obtained by Macrumors, Kuo states that Apple has decided to “abandon” the much loved Touch ID fingerprint sensor and it will not feature in any of the next generation of iPhones.

Apple media events are notoriously fine tuned and well-rehearsed, and more often than not, they go off without a hitch. Last week’s iPhone X event, however, proved to be an exception to the rule. When Craig Federighi attempted to showcase the iPhone X’s new Face ID feature for the first time, it didn’t work and he was prompted for a passcode. Though Apple proffered a more than plausible explanation for the hiccup, it was an embarrassing moment nonetheless.

The first iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, Apple TV 4K, and Apple Watch Series 3 orders began shipping out to customers today ahead of a promised delivery date on Friday, September 22, the official launch date for all of the devices.

Apple hasn’t updated its order statuses from “Preparing for Shipment” just yet, but packages shipping via UPS are already in transit and can be tracked using a UPS My Choice account or in some cases, by reference number on the UPS website after inputting a phone number associated with an order.

Did Apple change the world with the launch of the new iPhones this week? Or did Tim Cook and his team make the smallest changes possible to inch forward the capabilities of the iOS powered smartphones so the money would keep rolling in?

Let’s be clear, the triple-play of the iPhone 8, 8 Plus, and X are not going to be failures. I still expect Apple’s annual sales to be around the 205 to 210 million handset mark. Sales will remain steady, the faithful will upgrade for another product cycle and everyone stays quietly inside the walled garden of the Apple Store. No risks are taken, the money keeps coming in, and everything is as predictable as cherry pie. In terms of numbers, revenue, and a return for shareholders the three new iPhones are exactly what is required.

Apple Inc will launch an expected “iPhone 8” on Tuesday, hoping the number’s auspicious connotations in China will help turn around fortunes in the world’s biggest smartphone market after six quarters of falling sales.

Chinese shoppers, however, are already counting the cost, with the latest model tipped to have a price tag upward of $1,000 – roughly double the average Chinese monthly salary.

The success of Apple’s next iPhone in China is crucial for the Cupertino-based firm, which has seen its once-coveted phone slip into fifth position in China behind offerings from local rivals Huawei Technologies Co Ltd, Oppo, Vivo and Xiaomi Inc.

The iPhone 8 rumor machine has been running at a high gear, so much so that Apple CEO Tim Cook thinks it’s affecting current iPhone sales. Even though it doesn’t work and isn’t Apple’s final iPhone (we don’t even know where this mockup came from), the unofficial prototype gives us an idea of what the iPhone 8 could look like in real life, and not just in a rendering.

We’re about to see a variety of Android device makers introduce their best new smartphones models at MWC 2017, but many of these devices will have a huge disadvantage when it comes to competing against the best of the best. According to current rumors, some of the top Android devices that are about to be unveiled will not be powered by flagship 2017 mobile processors.

The Galaxy S8 (April) and the iPhone 8 (September) will feature chips that aren’t just faster than their predecessors, but are also a lot more efficient. While Apple never announces its silicon innovations ahead of the products they’re supposed to power, Samsung does it with some regularity. Right on schedule, the company just unveiled the mobile chip that’ll be found inside the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+.

has one of the best displays of any smartphone you can buy. That’s always been true. What’s interesting in 2016 is that Apple manages to be among best despite using LCD, a technology every other flagship has left behind.

The Galaxy S7 and Note 7. The Nexus 6P. The Moto Z. The LG G5. The OnePlus 3. Take any high-end smartphone, and what you see on the front isn’t LCD, like the iPhone 7. It’s OLED(or AMOLED, which is similar enough for our purposes that we’ll conflate the two). There’s good reason for that, says Ray Soneira, president of DisplayMate Technologies.

“[OLEDs are] much thinner, much lighter, with a much smaller bezel providing a near rimless design, they can be made flexible and into curved screens,” writes Soneira in a post analyzing the iPhone 7’s display prowess. “Plus they have a very fast response time, better viewing angles, and an always-on display mode.”
