The year 2017 was supposed to be the year of the iPhone. On the tenth anniversary of the original iPhone, everybody expected the next generation of iPhones to redefine the smartphone as we know it, and put Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) firmly back on top of the smartphone industry. There was an overwhelming sense of excitement over what Apple would come up with it, with many predicting an iPhone ‘super-cycle‘ that would shatter previous sale records. Fast forward to February of 2018, and there are already reports emerging about the imminent demise of the iPhone X, Apple’s premier flagship device.
