Apple iPhone X super cycle won't happen until 2018: Ming-Chi Kuo

The new word in town is that Apple is doubling down on Face ID, expanding the iPhone X feature to 2018 iPad Pro models.

As usual for Apple-related predictions, the word comes from KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, who has a near ideal track record for such predictions.

Apple has had a uphill sprint with the official release of the less-impressive iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus by and large due to an overwhelmingly skyrocketing anticipation for the iPhone X, which also come up to be the most expensive Cupertino's smartphone yet.

The good news, though, is that Apple has reportedly addressed any lingering production issues relating to the iPhone X's TrueDepth camera system.

Making the rather counter-intuitive remarks during an interview on stage at the New Yorker TechFest when asked how the iPhone has changed the world, Ive said: "Like any tool, you can see there's wonderful use and then there's misuse". The iPhone 8 devices went on sale in September and the iPhone X will be available to buy in November.

Meanwhile, Apple will be slowly implementing Face ID across its lineup, creating a user experience that's consistent with the iPhone X and boosting its own competitiveness in the process. The complex TrueDepth Camera is proving to be hard to manufacture.

Notably, Kuo thinks Apple intends to reserve the feature for its higher-end iPad Pros, not the cheaper iPad Air or iPad Mini tablets. Still when it comes for the iPhone purchase there are many factors gets involve: - affordability -storage size need- or because of the increasing reliance on the cloud with features like iCloud or Apple Music streaming.

During an interview with business cable channel CNBC on Monday, Deutsche Bank analyst Sherri Scribner said that based on Apple's current stock price, investors are too optimistic about Apple's prospects. Apple will start taking pre-orders on the handset later this month on the 27th of October. For Apple, the smaller 4.7-inch iPhone models have been the popular choice ranking in the top of the list for the first half of three consecutive years since 2015. Not only will the 2018 iPad Pro models adopt the technology, but all 2018 iPhones may as well.
