Apple could be making a more affordable iPhone X for 2018

Some iPhone X displays have 'nasty green line' problems

Some iPhone X displays have 'nasty green line' problems

On top of that, we have "cold weather responsiveness" issues with the iPhone X, and FaceID not working with some users' faces when they're wearing glasses.

For reference, the current iPhone X has a 5.8-inch OLED display, whereas the iPhone 8 Plus has a display size of 5.5 inches. Luckily, my dogs happened to get me up a few hours later for their morning meal, so I logged in and, to my surprise, was able to order an iPhone X before the sun came up.

It looks like the iPhone X may be experiencing some problems. Following that, new reports have emerged where some users are seeing a green line vertically across the display, while others are facing a crackling or buzzing sound from the phone's earpiece speaker.

Apple has so far declined to comment on the issue, and has replaced affected units without charging users.

The crackling occurs during all kinds of playback, including music, though many reports have said its especially bad during phone calls at maximum volume. Users have also noted that rebooting the phone does not fix the issue. Exactly how a software update will tackle this issue remains to be seen as a problem with the screen freezing suggests it may be a hardware fault instead.

New trilogy of Star Wars films coming from Rian Johnson
Rian Johnson is the director of Star Wars: The Last Jedi , the film that continues Rey's journey to finding Luke Skywalker. He will also write and direct the first in the trilogy, and his frequent collaborator Ram Bergman will produce.

This is not the only problem to plague the iPhone X. Earlier this month the auto correct issue emerged when people updated their phones to version 11.1 of the iOS operating system.

If you're new to the party, Ming-Chi Kuo has made a name for himself for having an astonishingly accurate track record for these kinds of predictions, thanks to his network of sources embedded along Apple's supply line.

"Battery life will return to normal when you bring the device back to higher ambient temperatures". While no one has an idea on how the iPhone X can go even bigger, a visualized render of the iPhone X Plus has surfaced recently.

KGI has previously predicted that all iPhones will drop Touch ID next year in favor of Face ID as the new design moves away from fingerprint recognition in favor of facial recognition for biometric security.
