Who spends the most on mobile gaming? Hint: it's not iPhone X users

Last year, average phone prices hit a record, riding on $900+ handsets like the iPhone X, Note 8, or Pixel 2 XL. This year, the trend is here to stay, it seems, yet at least one cohort may be jolly about it, and it’s mobile game developers.

Users with expensive phones from Apple, Samsung and Google, it turns out, spend the most on games, too. In fact, research firm DeltaDNA has pegged the latest smartphones from these makers to have almost three times the monetization ratio, compared to the plebeian average of 2-3% of freemium gamers making in-app purchase for the grand …

The latest report from Consumer Intelligence Research Partners (CIRP) indicates that in the U.S. the Apple iPhone X is struggling to capture sales, while the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus have been picking up momentum. In the states, those three models made up 60% of iPhone sales during the calendar first quarter of 2018. The iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus were responsible for 23% and 21% of Q1 sales, respectively.

Apple iPhone 5s might get iOS 12 according to WebKit test

The smart money expects that for the first time, the Apple iPhone 5s will not receive the next version of iOS this September. Last year, the cut-off model was the iPhone 5; any iPhone that was released after the iPhone 5 received iOS 11. With that in mind, one could come to the conclusion that the Apple iPhone 5s would be the cut-off model this year and iOS 12 will be made available to the iPhone 6 and later.

But thanks to the open source nature of WebKit, the browser engine used by Safari, we were able to find a page that mentions a test run in January that included an Apple iPhone 5s running …

These returned iPhone models can be stripped of usable parts (more on that later). From now through April 30th, Apple will make a donation to Conservation International for every handset it receives …

The Apple iPhone X is "dead" says brokerage firm analyst

Yesterday, we told you that Apple chip supplier TSMC lowered its revenue forecast for the year, citing softer than expected sales of high-end smartphones. With that in mind, Mirabaud Securities analyst Neil Campling says that there is an oversupply of chips at TSMC which “has never been higher.” And he should know; Mirabaud has tracked TSMC’s inventory for over a decade.

With TSMC swimming in chips, and talk from suppliers about slowing shipments to Apple, Campling told clients in a note that “the iPhone X is dead.” He comes to that conclusion from the record inventory at TSMC, which …

iPhone SE 2 could arrive in May with A10 Fusion but no headphone jack

The rumored iPhone SE 2 could be announced next month. Apple’s original iPhone SE saw an early 2016 launch, with the model being updated one year later with new storage variants. In recent times, however, a successor has reportedly been in the works and, according to a number of case makers, it appears Apple could launch the device as soon as next month.

Unlike previous rumors, the manufacturers present at the Global Sources Mobile Electronics show in Hong Kong don’t expect the new model to completely adopt the design language debuted on the iPhone X. Instead, the iPhone SE 2 will continue …

WSJ: it's back to Samsung for Apple, as LG struggles with a 6.5" iPhone display

Apple is having a traumatic experience with the rumored 6.5″ iPhone Xs Plus displays, reports the Wall Street Journal, citing “people familiar with the matter.” The thing is, Apple is expecting for its most expensive 2018 phone to be a somewhat niche device that will represent only 20% of the new iPhones’ production this year, so Apple thought it could go to LG to supply its large flexible OLED panel, and diversify a bit from Samsung’s near-monopoly panel pricing.

LG, however, has reportedly hit production hiccups, and Apple has taken the rare step to make it come up with a third …
