three new iPhones: an updated version of the iPhone X, a larger version, and a cheaper, 6.1-inch LCD version, which a new leak suggests will be called the iPhone XC.
It also flies against a previous Wall Street Journal report claiming Apple ordered more LCD screens in anticipation of higher demand compared to the iPhone XS and XS Max.
Given what we know about the coming iPhones, it's a safe bet that the only phone conceivably designed with a 5G radio would be the iPhone Xs Max. Apple has always waited until there's a compelling reason to introduce a new technology, and that philosophy applies doubly when introducing that new technology would compromise the existing product.
It was just recently that the ever-reliable leak aggregation website, Slashleaks, posted a series of screenshots allegedly depicting Apple's upcoming iPhone models - specifically, the anticipated 6.1-inch LCD variant, dubbed iPhone 9 - in a variety of eye-popping colors, including Red, Cobalt Blue, and, most interestingly, a previously-rumored (but previously unseen) Spicy Orange finish. That means no 5G iPhone this year, or possibly in 2019, and I bet that no one is going to complain. This year, the new models will likely be available for purchase much closer to their announcement date. Apple already used one of these 5 years ago to identify an "inexpensive" iPhone model. It also might include Touch ID, but with no Touch Bar.
New MacBook: The company is preparing a new lower-cost laptop with a 13-inch Retina display to succeed the MacBook Air.
AirPower Wireless Charger: This is Apple's charging pad that can simultaneously charge an iPhone, Apple Watch, and AirPods without plugging them in. You'll need two new accessories for that, a 29W USB-C adapter, and a USB-C to Lightning cable, which will run you $74.
