Apple apparently has no plans to release the fourth-generation iPhone SE next year.
MacRumors reports that, according to analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, Apple has notified suppliers that it would not release an iPhone SE smartphone in 2024.
Kuo claimed that the tech giant had planned to release its first in-house 5G CPU with the fourth-generation iPhone SE, but this is no longer expected as the product has been canceled.
Instead, he stated that Apple is anticipated to continue relying on Qualcomm for 5G chips in 2024, including for the iPhone 16 series.
In addition, he stated that the iPhone manufacturer intended to test the 5G chip in the iPhone SE model before to implementing it in the iPhone 16 series to ensure that its real-world performance was satisfactory.
In the meanwhile, Kuo stated last month that the business will cancel or postpone the 2024 mass production of the iPhone SE 4.
“My latest survey indicates that Apple will likely cancel or postpone the mass production plan for the 2024 iPhone SE 4. I think this is due to the consistently lower-than-expected shipments of mid-to-low-end iPhones (e.g., SE 3, 13 mini, and 14 Plus),” he had tweeted.
