Apple reportedly plans to discontinue the first-gen iPhone X later this year
As we highlighted briefly last week, Apple will has plans to discontinue the current iPhone X model once the company introduces its 2018 iPhone lineup later this fall. The news comes courtesy of reputed analyst Ming Chi-Kuo who relays that Apple's next-gen iPhone lineup will feature two brand new devices with edgeless displays, one being 6.5-inch iPhone with an OLED display and the other a 6.1-inch iPhone with an LCD display. The current 5.8-inch iPhone X, meanwhile, will be discontinued.
Following up on his initial investor note, Kuo released a new report today (via MacRumors) which sheds a bit more light on Apple's strategy here. As Kuo details, Apple is of the mind that if the current iPhone X is available at a discount, it would eat into sales of Apple's brand new devices.
