In a bid to regain the sales momentum of the iPhone X, Apple plans on launching a new color variant of the handset. The report from Mac Otakara does not provide any more details or the color that Apple is expected to introduce for the iPhone X.
There have been reports and rumors in recent weeks and months of Apple working on a new colour variant for the iPhone X as well as the iPhone 8. However, given the lack of leaks, it has been difficult to confirm their accuracy. A leak from last week pointed to Apple working on a Rose Gold iPhone X variant but other leaks point to the company working on a Product(RED) variant of not just the iPhone X but also the iPhone 8.
Apple had last year launched a Product(RED) variant of the iPhone 7 in a bid to boost its sales. The move definitely worked and a new colour variant of the iPhone X will likely help boost the sales of the handset as well.
The Mac Otakara report also claims that Apple will be launching a refresh of its $329 iPad in Q3 this year. Given that Apple is holding an education focused event early next week where it is expected to unveil a new cheaper iPad, its unlikely that we will see Apple release another new $300 iPad in Q3. If anything, this new iPad that today’s report is referencing to will likely be unveiled by Apple at its event on March 27.
