The iPhone X is Getting Cancelled This Summer!

An extremely credible source has leaked a report that states Apple will be cancelling the iPhone X this summer due to slow sales.

AppleInsider has managed to obtain a report from acclaimed KGI securities analyst Ming-Cho Kuo that say’s Apple are disappointed with sales of the expensive handset which has led to a decision to cancel production in the summer.  This in unprecedented for Apple and marks the first time a handset has been cancelled in its first year since the iPhone 5C in 2014.

How Much Does an iPhone X Actually Cost? A Lot Less Than You Might Think!

The iPhone X is the most expensive smartphone Apple has ever produced.  But how much does the device actually cost to make.  Not as much as you might think it turns out.

The iPhone X starts at £999 for the cheapest model and can run you up to £1348 if you opt for the larger storage size and Apple Care extended warranty.  That’s a LOT of money for a smartphone of any description.

The iPhone X’s striking design doesn’t bring too many new features to the table.  Facial recognition and emojis that match your face aside, the iPhone X was still seen as behind Samsung and other Android devices in many areas.

That aside, the iPhone X still sold out on release and back orders are just beginning to be fulfilled.  As with most other Apple devices before it, the hype matched customer demand and the device was hugely sought after.

A Fake Cuphead Game Made Into On The Apple App Store

Apple’s App Store has long been touted as a bastion of quality in terms of the applications it hosts. Unlike Androids Play Store, the apps it allows onto the service are much more heavily regulated and quality tested. So when a fake version of Cuphead appeared on the app store, questions were asked.

The report first came via TorchArcade and stated that a version of the Microsoft exclusive game had appeared on the App Store – with a link to what appeared to be a legitimate game. Everything looks above board with real game screenshots and the studios name – StudioMDHR – as the seller. But when you take a closer look, the support page links to “studiomhrgames.com” as opposed to the correct URL – which is “studiomdhr.com”. Once the game is purchased you’ll also see an incorrect company name in the form of “Studio MDHR Entertainment Inc”. Continue reading A Fake Cuphead Game Made Into On The Apple App Store
