Report: Apple will cancel or postpone 2024 iPhone SE

3.8
Apple announced its third-gen iPhone SE just a few months ago but it appears that the device isn't doing quite as well commercially as the company thought it would. According to reputable analyst and industry insider Ming-Chi Kuo, Apple will either cancel or postpone the 2024 iteration of the series.

In a series of tweets, Kuo explained that Apple is likely to postpone or altogether cancel the mass production of 2024's iPhone SE, expected to be "iPhone SE 4". According to the analyst, many recent iPhone variants like the iPhone SE 3, 13 mini, and 14 aren't selling that well and will be discontinued.

Kuo also said highlighted that the purported full-screen design for the SE 4 has resulted in higher manufacturing costs. If it is manufactured and sold under the current process, it will downstream the expenses to the customer in the form of an undesirable price tag too, so Apple may need to reposition the series.

According to previous rumors, the iPhone SE 4 is expected to be similar to the iPhone XR in terms of appearance and will house a 6.1-inch all-display design. Instead of the Touch ID Home button, it is expected to house Face ID or a Touch ID power button.

However, if the latest report is to be believed, it seems like Apple may end up shelving the product line altogether. The company obviously hasn't confirmed the accuracy of Kuo's statements but we'll likely find out more in the next few months or so.

they can put it on the shelf for the time being

with the price rise costs on everything for the past (nearly a) year,
don't think it would be wise for them to push out another model,
especially with the last 2 models not doing so well
(probably due them being released through covid)

Maybe if their iPhones cost a bit less more people would continue with the new ones but it is ridiculous at this point the way they're keeping selling a new verision almost every year. It'd be better if they came out with a new one every 4-5 years, too excessive

Not really a surprise. Pretty sure the iPhone 14 hasn't sold as much as they'd like and they had to slow production. Cost of living is bad and people have better things to spend their money on

Runts That fine who cares lol nobody NEEDS a new iPhone every single year smh


Do you actually read these articles? Or do you just make spam posts on every single one? It's kind of irritating because 90% of your comments don't have any relevance to the article or add anything to it in anyway..
