Apple to release three new iPhones amid struggling sales

Apple will reportedly release three new iPhones in 2019 Apple iPhones at an Apple Store in Beijing

The report doesn't specify if both the regular and larger iPhone 11 (that's a non-final name) will have triple cameras or if that setup will be reserved for the iPhone 11 Max.

Following lackluster sales of its latest iPhones, most notably in China, Apple is developing three new iPhone models to be released in the fall, according to a report in The Wall Street Journal.

It's also not attractive because people can already buy phones that have the functionality that Apple won't have in the iPhone until at least the end of 2020.

The report adds that the cheapest model will stick with an LCD screen, while the iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Max will of course use OLED, just like the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max.

The problem is that even if Apple now wanted to pivot away from releasing an iPhone with an LCD display, it's likely too late in the planning cycle for Apple to make any significant changes. Huawei's Mate 20 Pro and P20 Pro, launched previous year, carry three rear cameras.

Apple has a big year ahead of itself.

Ruth Bader Ginsburg shows 'no evidence of remaining disease,' Supreme Court says
Dubbed the " Notorious RBG ", Ginsburg marked 25 years on bench last year since her appointment to the court in 1993. Politico reported that the White House stirrings came in response to Ginsburg being out of the office.

Customers gather as they take part in a class to learn how to use their iPhones at an Apple Store on January 7, 2019 in Beijing, China.

But Apple lags behind its rivals in the number of rear cameras.

In December, Apple started a trade-in promotion allowing consumers to trade their Android phones (including those from Huawei and Xiaomi) for credits toward buying new iPhones, Yahoo reported. A spokesperson for Apple did not immediately respond to FOX Business' request for comment on the report. "They weren't impacted in the past, but 5G is going to be much easier to market. Or, Apple might be under pressure to clean out its stock of iPhones", he believes.

We're still, er, 10 months away from the launch of Apple's next iPhones, and we've already heard murmurs of a notch-less full-screen design, upgraded Face ID tech and a fully OLED lineup.

"Cutting the price of devices so soon could hurt Apple's premium brand image", Jia said.

LCP is more "brittle" than alternatives, Kup notes, and causes issues with yield rate, while the Modified PI antenna "can be as good as LCP thanks to the improved fluoride formula".
