Apple Reportedly Plotting to Drop 3 New iPhones in 2018

Now that we all have our iPhone X and iPhone 8 devices either currently in our hands or en route to our homes, we are at peace with the crumbling world around us. You could even say we are content and have no interest in entertaining the usual premature hype given to whatever next year's phones may bring, as we have learned the power of simply appreciating what we have.

Obvious lies and idealistic bullshit aside, let's get real. The chatter about Apple's 2018 plans has indeed already kicked off and you know damn well any self-respecting publication will publish every single rumor, even when the rumors contradict each other and offer zero clarity. In that spirit, strap in for the rumored allegedness surrounding whisperings of Apple having a trio of new iPhones on deck for next year.


As spotted by CNBC Monday, a note from KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo (by way of MacRumors) suggests Apple is planning to drop a “high-end” device with a massive 6.5-inch display. Apple is also reportedly (allegedly, possibly, maybe, etc.) dropping a 5.8-incher and a 6.1-incher. The 6.5 and 5.8-inch devices, MacRumors said, will boast OLED displays, while the 6.1-incher will have LCD. Presumably, the rumored device with a 6.5-inch display is the iPhone X Plus.

All three devices will reportedly arrive with full-screen notched design and the X's TrueDepth camera capabilities. The source of these whisperings, Ming-Chi Kuo, is touted by MacRumors as someone who “doesn't have an absolutely perfect track record, [but] often relays accurate information from his sources within Apple's supply chain.” Fair enough.

Tory Lanez Spends $35K in Luxury Store After Allegedly Being Dissed by Employee

Before taking the stage for his scheduled appearance at the Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival, Tory Lanez appears to have gotten some shopping in at the high end boutique Holt Renfrew. In a series of since-deleted tweets, Tory calls out a seemingly dismissive clerk who he accuses of discriminating against him. In Lanez’s video, which has since been picked up by other Twitter users, the rapper can be seen and heard calling out the employee and briefly filming the worker from outside the store.

“I gotta get him,” Lanez says while filming the Holt Renfrew employee from his phone. “Look at his ass. Say hello. Yeah, we balled out your shit. We walked in the store…he ain’t think we was gonna buy nothing. We balled out his shit. We Gucci down. We Louis Vuitton down…”

Based on Lanez’s interaction with a fan asking about the incident, the rapper interpreted the employee’s alleged dismissive attitude as a disrespectful implication Lanez lacked the means to buy the luxury goods. Other tweets that are no longer available hint at Tory Lanez intending to drop the $35,000 at the store regardless and merely choosing a different employee to help with the transaction and possibly benefit from the commission on the sale.

“It’s not the fact that we spent $35K in there, we were already going there to do that. It’s the fact that HE didn’t get the percentage,” Tory tweeted.

DJ Akademiks ripped Tory Lanez’s now-deleted video and also captured one of the tweets explaining his rationale for still dropping five figures at an establishment he felt disrespected him.

 “I hope the coworker that got the commission was black, LMAO,” Twitter user @southernjawn said.

“He was,” Lanez replied, while adding a string of emojis.

Tory isn’t the first entertainer to go public with claims of a business allegedly discriminating against him despite enjoying the spoils of a rap career. In July of 2016, Chance the Rapper took to Twitter to call out Chicago sports bar Whirlyball. Chance told his followers the Whirlyball management “doesn’t know how to treat customers.”

“Don’t go to @WhirlyBall it’s very inaccessible if you’re black or friends with black people, they’ve clearly outlined in their dress code,” Chance added.

As for Tory, Holt Renfrew has yet to publicly respond to his clams.

Kristaps Porziņģis Called Out for Trying to Shoot His Shot With Instagram Model Ines Nikić

Kristaps Porzingis is the latest person of interest to be publicly called out for attempted Instagram flirtations. On an Instagram post from lash artist and model Ines Nikić earlier this week, the New York Knicks star dropped some hearts:


Like, what even? #littleitaly

Porzingis offered an emoji-assisted “oh shit my bad” when another Instagram user pointed out that Ines Nikić “is 1999.” The comment, however, had already been noticed:


@kporzee who?😜 Spavaš li mirno Porzingis Kristapsu?

In a post showing someone who is presumably her boyfriend, Ines Nikić tagged Porzingis and inquired about the peacefulness of his sleep. The Instagram exchange was quickly turned into a joke on Twitter:

As Sports Illustrated noted in their thrilling report on an Instagram comment, this isn't the first time Porzingis has employed Instagram for his public flirtations. Back in February, he commented on a photo of model Abigail Ratchford and got a relatively immediate response. Porzingis again used his preferred emoji on the following photo, prompting a similarly emoji-centered response from Ratchford:
