With the iPhone 7 only being out for a few months now, Apple is now preparing to launch a major update to the iPhone lineup, possibly being the largest iPhone sales success in history, according to KGI. It expects Apple to sell between 120-150 million units in the second half of 2017, noting that it’ll be ‘unprecedented’ demand.

The firm reiterates what it has said in the past, saying that Apple will launch three new iPhones in 2017: one with a major redesign (dubbed iPhone 8), and two iterative updates to the existing 4.7 and 5.5-inch iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus.

However, it now says that wireless charging will be available on all models, making the ‘less-exciting’ models be more compelling to customers. The iterative models will look similar to the existing iPhone 7 but will replace the aluminum body for a glass casing.

In terms of the OLED-screen iPhone, there doesn’t seem to be a consensus in terms of the actual display size. But most are speculating that Apple will ultimately choose something around 5.8 inches with a wraparound display.
