A second report, this time from Bloomberg's Mark Gurman, says Apple will release a 6.5-inch "phablet" that will feature the largest display ever on an iPhone.

Apple is also planning a new version of the current iPhone X model.

Apple's updated iPhone X is internally called the D32, and it will feature an A12 processor, which will also power the 6.5-inch iPhone. The company's also expected to debut a larger iPhone X-style phone with the biggest display ever put on an iPhone: 6.5-inches. This was planned for the X but abandoned in the end because of production problems. Both of these phones will feature stainless steel edges, and there is a possibility Apple will add a gold color option for both of these pricier iPhones. It is evidently larger than the display found on the iPhone X and the notch is still in place, indicating that Apple will be sticking to this design for the foreseeable future. The big phone would join two other models - a standard-sized iPhone X upgrade and a low-priced, LCD iPhone. Essentially, this would be an iPhone with about the same physical size as iPhone 8 Plus, but with an edge-to-edge design seen from the iPhone X. This model of course will include Face ID. These rumors fit previous leaks that claimed the device would have a 6.5 inch screen, making it the largest phone out of all the competitors on the market.

Expect to hear the official announcement of the new iPhones at an Apple launch event this summer. Allowing apple to cater to markets with a demand for more budget devices. Images displayed on the big screen could be as sharp as that of iPhone X. The same expensive OLED technology is still considered to be used. With the eSIM tech, smartphones can connect to the cellular data networks without inserting a traditional SIM card.

Even with that, the talent gap between them and Germany's Bayern is expected to prove to be too much for the Turkish team. I also think tonight we were a bit unlucky. maybe we deserved a bit more tonight.

This is a bigger screen size than any iPhone so far, with the iPhone X and iPhone 8 Plus both sporting a 5.8inch screen. The OLED screen will be replaced with an LCD version, saving on costs all the way around.

Other possible features for the 2018 iPhones include the iOS 12, upgraded augmented reality capabilities, deeper Siri integration, and Animojis in Facetime.
