News circling the globe that people actually want to immediately read about lets you know the group therein is on to something.
As reported at apple.com on June 15, 2018, “Apple today announced a unique, multi-year content partnership with Oprah Winfrey, the esteemed producer, actress, talk show host, philanthropist and CEO of OWN.
Together, Winfrey and Apple will create original programs that embrace her incomparable ability to connect with audiences around the world.
Winfrey’s projects will be released as part of a lineup of original content from Apple.”
Now that is news to keep an eye on and stay on top of.
Having said that, when it comes to Apple’s products, isn’t it always that way?
The informative group digitaltrends.com relates, “The iPhone is a popular device — and it’s only getting more popular, especially among teenagers in the U.S. According to a recent report, around 82 percent of teenagers in the U.S. now use an iPhone — a figure that’s up from 60 percent back in 2014.
That’s pretty good news for Apple. Not only are more people, in general, using its products, but those people are young — and more likely to stick with the company as they get older. Not only that, but it’s highly likely that the figure will continue to go up — according to the report as many as 84 percent of teens say that their next device will be an iPhone.”
Everything Apple touches seems to turn to green. Many feel green apples taste better than red.
Other news circling the globe is that next to Rolex, Apple watches are in high demand and that demand is expected to increase.
Apple’s popularity could also surge later this year.
The company is rumored to be testing three iPhone models to be launched in the fall, including one model that comes at a lower cost and still retains an iPhone X-like design.
Why don’t we go to the source and let them speak regarding the iPhone X.
At apple.com they announce, “Our vision has always been to create an iPhone that is entirely screen. One so immersive the device itself disappears into the experience. And so intelligent it can respond to a tap, your voice, and even a glance. With iPhone X, that vision is now a reality. Say hello to the future.”
The future seems to be now. Regarding this device that is all the rage among the younger generation, indianexpress.com provides some insights, “Apple iPhone series for 2018 has seen quite a few leaks and thanks to the recent spate of hands-on videos and high-resolution image renders, we have got a good look at what to expect in September this year. Apple is expected to launch three iPhones in September 2018. The first will be the iPhone X 2018 with a similar design like the current iPhone X. There will also be a more expensive iPhone X Plus with a 6.5-inch display, and more expensive price of nearly $1000.
Finally, there will be a budget iPhone X or the iPhone 9 as some are calling it. Reports have also called this the iPhone X2 or the iPhone SE 2, and say the iPhone 9 name will not be final. Let’s take a look at the differences, rumors around the three iPhone variants for 2018.”
We love it when a group is clever and persistent enough to provide us with insights that we could not get otherwise.
We’re fortunate as of this July 8, 2018 writing to have more predictions, especially in terms of style. The insightful team at qz.com adds, “If you’re sick of having to settle for shades of grey, gold, or white for your iPhone, you might soon be in luck.
A report from longtime Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, whose connections to various parts of Apple’s supply chain in Asia have landed him a string of accurate product predictions over the years, suggests that the next model of the iPhone will come in a wider range of colors.”
We’ve read previously where Apple is partnering with a media giant in Ms. Winfrey so it is fitting that another media giant, Google is making sure that they are compatible with this new iPhone X.
On July 5, 2018 at theverge.com they report, “After roughly nine months since Apple’s full-screen iPhone X hit the market, Google has at last updated its Inbox email app to support the device. In a 144MB update pushed out on the App Store today, Google says Inbox now supports Apple’s pricier iPhone variant, with little else by way of changes in the update text.
Effectively, this update just removes the black bars on the top and bottom of the screen so it more naturally fits the iPhone X’s display, with its funky 19.5:9 aspect ratio.”
Impressive. Now for once we feel ahead of the curve.
Staying with style, we have a visiting writer who shares some thoughts on how you should find a home for your iPhone X.

Get Your iPhone X Case Before You Get Your Phone
By Nahid Ahmad
This isn’t just a suggestion but a statement of what is going to happen with most people who want to get themselves Apple’s new smartphone this year. There is always a long wait for the new Apple smartphone; especially if you are not in the States. If you are in a country in Asia, this wait may last up to months, especially if you want to get the new iPhone X this year. Now a lot of people are going to be reading this and wondering why because this year, for the first time ever, Apple is rolling out the new iPhone X simultaneously to many countries. The iPhone X goes on sale on the same date in thirteen more countries as it does in North America, which is the 3rd of November. However, that is just theoretical. Anyone who has tried to buy a new iPhone in a retail store or even online, on the day of launch, in any country across the world will know that it is almost impossible. The retail stores have just a few units in stock that are sold out to the people who camp outside the stores for days, waiting to get their hands on the new Apple hotness. Online stores sell out even faster and within minutes if not seconds, the iPhones are back ordered and ship dates slip back to many weeks.
This year was no different and the iPhone X has opened up for pre-order just a few days ago. On the midnight when the Apple online store started accepting orders, those people who did not manage to place their orders for the phone within the first few minutes already started seeing that the phone was back ordered and that their phones would not ship for 4 or even 5 weeks. Those customers that had also bought iPhone covers with their phones realized that their iPhone X case would ship before the phone itself and they’d receive the case before the phone for which it was meant.
iPhone X Cases for your new phone
Customers in countries outside North America who try to buy the iPhone X online are going to have to wait even longer because the phone will probably be available in brick and mortar retail stores long before it is available with online sellers. There too quantities of the iPhone X will be very limited until 2018, so customers are probably going to have a much easier time finding great designer iPhone X cases and iPhone X back covers for their phones, than they are in actually getting the phones.
Almost all major Indian cases sellers and accessory makers have launched their range of iPhone X covers and some are even let prospective iPhone X owners create their own iPhone X custom case with their own photos. All of these iPhone X cases should ship within a few days, so within a week or so, there are going to be a ton of Indian customers who have their iPhone X back covers ready in anticipation of a phone that they haven’t even been given the chance to buy yet!
