iPhone X Orders Expected To Cross 50 Million, 6-Inch 2018 iPhone Rumored, Siri Ditches Bing

The news is coming thick and fast with new smartphones such as iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus being released, while others like iPhone X still not set to arrive for weeks.

Here we have wrapped a few stories related to iPhone so you can stay abreast of anything and everything that is important to current and future iPhones. It’s a roundup of sorts that we think will be of interest. As you might expect right now. With that out of the way, let’s jump in shall we?

iPhone X Order Could Reach 50 Million Mark: The iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus have now been released, but the spectre of the iPhone X refuses to go away. With sales of the new iPhones 8 series thought to have been disappointing, attention has already turned to how well the iPhone X will sell, and according to KGI Securities, it could do rather well. KGI’s Ming-Chi Kuo writes that demand for the new phone could see orders reach 50 million units, giving Apple further stock shortages to contend with. We already know the high-end iPhone will be available in relatively small quantities and this news may mean getting hold of one will be even harder than first feared.

6-Inch iPhone Rumored For 2018: We have not yet seen all of 2017’s iPhones released, but talk is already turning to next year. A new report by The Korea Herald has Apple all ready to ditch the iPhone X’s 5.28-inch display in favor of a larger 6-inch model, although the report does appear to be unsure itself as to whether the larger device will replace, or complement the smaller offering.

Apple Ditches Bing: In a surprising move out of nowhere, Apple announced that it’s replacing Bing with Google for Siri on iOS and Mac as well as Spotlight Search on iOS and Mac. Apple says that it has done so for consistency sake given Safari has had Google setmas default provider because of a deal in place between the two Cupertino and Mountain View giants. It has been reported that Google recently renewed its deal with Apple to remain the default search provider in Safari for $3 billion.
