As fall approaches, so do the rumors of the brand new iPhone. This year Apple is planning to do something that everyone can rally behind: cut iPhone prices. Ming-Chi Kuo, Apple’s most prominent insider, has stated that new iPhone prices could be fewer than $300 their current price.
There will be three phones revealed this year: a cheaper iPhone X at $600, iPhone X at $800, and iPhone X Plus at $900. The upcoming iPhone X is clocking in 10% faster than past single core performance and an increase of ram from 3gb to 4gb. Although not as big of a performance upgrade as any other iPhone release, Apple is putting most of the improvements in iOS 12 to increase speed and fluidity.

The upcoming iPhone is also rumored to be incorporating a USB-C to Lightning Cable with purchase. The company seeks to have compatibility within all Apple devices, since the new MacBooks don’t support the current USB-A charger. The new charger would give up to 18W, allowing fast charging, which charges an iPhone to 50% in under 30 minutes.
