Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo said Apple’s mid-range iPhone sales were lower than expected. Therefore, Cupertino is expected to cancel or at least delay the iPhone SE 4 until 2024.
The company needs to reevaluate its strategy and pricing, as the next-generation iPhone SE will have an edge-to-edge screen design, which means higher production costs. Reduce “unnecessary new product development expenses” and help the company meet the “challenges of the 1200 global recession.”
Early renders suggest that the iPhone SE 4, possibly called the iPhone SE (2024), will be based on the iPhone XR. Generation X was the first to remove Touch ID and retain Face ID as the only biometric authentication method, and now the SE series is expected to join it when the phone arrives.
Apple usually releases the iPhone SE in the spring, which means there are at least 15 months left before the phone arrives , we can confirm that the chipset will be the main change from the iPhone XR, which will help the camera take better photos and iOS run smoother.
However, Apple has plenty of time to reconsider its decision, which means that nothing is final.
