Apple accused of fraud for hiding drop in iPhone sales

Apple Could Launch Refreshed 4.7-inch iPhone 8 in March 2020

Apple will reportedly release a new 4.7-inch iPhone 8 variant in March 2020 to cater to customers who are still holding onto their iPhone SE and prefer a smaller iPhone. By last fall, however, we had basically given up on seeing the new smaller and lower-cost model, especially after Apple pushed out the lower-cost iPhone XR at the entry level. Apple did something similar with the iPhone SE model it launched back in 2016.

The revamped iPhone 8 will be mass produced up to 20 million units, and Pegatron will be the company behind this iPhone 8 production.

"iPhone XR was a strong performer for Apple this quarter, outselling the combined iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max in Europe and claiming the title of the best-selling model in Great Britain", Dominic Sunnebo, Global Director for Kantar, said.

We've probably reached peak iPhone, but Apple is desperate to keep its smartphones selling, so it looks as though we're going to get a new budget offering next year in the form of a revised iPhone 8.

The device comes with a 2,942mAh cell that Apple itself has insisted offers "the longest battery life ever in an iPhone".

The screen size on the other hand, reduces the truth of the speculation that the iPhone 8 is the next iPhone SE. The latest report presents a far less appealing picture of the iPhone SE update.

The iPhone 8 still came in the classic iPhone design with Home Button.

The new device is expected to feature the same design and a 4.7-inch display, but it will be bumped up with a new A13 processor, a single-lens camera, and 128GB storage. If you aren't a fan of Face ID, this new iPhone should come with Touch ID which, for some, has proven to be much more reliable and faster. The Apple iPhone 8s is said to be priced at $649 which translates into Rs 46,000.
