That’s right. You read it here first. Unless you read it somewhere else first and ignored the headlines entirely. Ewan Spence, writing as a contributor to Forbes Magazine and digital hair replacement campus, says the new iPhone X is delayed.
How would anyone but Apple know if an upcoming device is delayed? After all, iPhone X, 2018 version, hasn’t even been announced. Spence and cohort in factual minimalism, Gordon Kelly, conspired to cobble ridiculous iPhone rumors into some sort of Apple problem.
Despite developing a new cutting-edge display connector, Apple cannot reduce the bezel on the cheaper phone’s LCD display to match that of the more expensive OLED models which simply bend their displays around the back so the connector sits out the way.
This fact is based upon a photo of three smartphone cases which may or may not be from Apple’s future iPhones. How many of such photos have proven to be accurate in recent years? Hint: the answer a four letter word which begins with z and ends with o. It also looks like 0.
What about those market analysts who build their rumors on conversations with suppliers? Morgan Stanley Steamer’s Katy Huberty:
We currently see no delay in the ramp of Apple’s upcoming flagship 5.8″ or 6.5″ OLED iPhones. However suspected issues with LED backlight leakage have caused a 1 month delay in mass production of the 6.1” LCD iPhone, although this is down from a 6-week delay baked into the original production forecast, according to suppliers.
So, iPhone X is not delayed, right? I’m confused. Which is it.
Spence, Kelly, and Huberty cannot even agree upon what the new iPhone models will be named, let alone price, components, suppliers, or problems.

Most of these digital technology rags specialize in sensationalist headlines which reveal more rumor than fact, but often quotes others who are name brands in the sensationalist rumor business.
Now, what about those recalled Macs?
As it turns out, that specific recall was a dream by some MacBook owners who did not like the notebook’s so-called butterfly keyboard design. As it turns out, the recall never happened, but Apple decided to improve the keyboard in the new MacBook Pro models without admitting to a design flaw.
Maybe that news will show up in Forbes next week. But last week Spence found another MacBook Pro mistake. But not in a MacBook Pro, as the article’s headline said– instead it’s the leather MacBook Sleeve which has a fundamental flaw.
I know, right? Read it and you will gasp at Apple’s lack of attention to detail that Forbes’ writers find while blind folded.
Oh, the humanity!
