The iPhone X is a success, but perhaps its success is not relative to the hype. Apple’s 5.8-inch iPhone was the most hyped up iPhone in years. As the Inquisitr pointed out last week, there have been some reports that demand Apple’s latest iPhone is dwindling. These reports led to lower sales forecasts. This is one reason why there is some skepticism to the rumors of 2018’s iPhone X Plus.
According to Mac Rumors, the iPhone X will have a 6.5-inch OLED screen that is supplied by LG, while Samsung will supply the screens for the smaller phones. The Plus, along with Apple’s other new iPhones, is said to launch in the usual September-October time frame. However, there doesn’t seem to be a lot of excitement from Apple fans, and the comments section after the Mac Rumors article is a reflection of that.
There are many who like the 6.3-inch Galaxy Note 8 and wish Apple would make a device with a similar screen. However, one thing that has always been lacking on Apple’s phones has been digital inking support. The Apple Pencil, which is often seen as the best stylus on the market, can be used on the iPad Pro but not the iPhone. However, according to 9To5Mac, that may change soon.
The article adds that there have been many patents for Apple Pencil support referencing the iPhone. There have also been reports that either the Apple Pencil or similar stylus may be bundled with a 2019 iPhone. There were many rumors over the past year that Apple had planned to include digital inking support with the iPhone X, but those didn’t pan out.
