According to Kuo, Apple will discontinue the first-gen iPhone X when the second-generation version of the device launches later this year.

They will withdraw from the stores in the summer of 2018.

Apple is scheduled to report its first quarter results on February 1. This also suggests that the 6.1-inch iPhone may sport a taller display, although not as tall as the iPhone X which comes with an aspect ratio of 19.5:9. That gave the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus almost two months of time on store shelves before the iPhone X was released.

The LCD iPhone is rumored to sport a rather unusual feature-set for a mid-range smartphone - and especially for an Apple iPhone.

The organizers say this event is meant to thank everyone who has provided great educational options to Arizona students. Trump praised Education Secretary Betsy DeVos, who was a school choice advocate before he appointed her to the position.

Apple launched the iPhone X a year ago to commemorate its tenth anniversary. The device eliminates the home button and Touch ID in favor of front sensors that support facial recognition for security. The screen will be a lower-resolution TFT LCD panel, though still with the minimal bezels of its more expensive OLED counterparts (and the distinctive notch at the top). 9to5Mac attributed part of that to the fact that the iPhone X arrived later than usual.

Canalys also noted that the iPhone 8 and lower models were also in high demand for their value in money, with Apple having what the firm called its best performance till date. Apple typically releases its latest iPhones in September. Likely to be known as the iPhone 9, this model is expected to have a traditional Retina display with roughly 330 PPI, and a single rear camera.

Inside, the architecture of the logic board will be more simplistic, eschewing the stacked layout that the iPhone X debuted in 2017.

In related news, insider Daniel J. Riccio sold 15,641 shares of the company's stock in a transaction that occurred on Friday, January 5th. The iPhone is its most important product because it generates about two thirds of its revenue. Finally, Raymond James Financial reaffirmed an "outperform" rating and issued a $180.00 target price (up previously from $170.00) on shares of Apple in a report on Tuesday, September 26th. The company had revenue of $52.58 billion during the quarter, compared to the consensus estimate of $50.71 billion.
