According to Nikkei, which cited persons familiar with the topic, iPhone phones expected to be delivered next year will be 5G enabled. This would cover all iPhone models released in 2022, including Apple’s first redesign of the iPhone SE in two years. According to the rumor, Apple would not offer any new 4G devices until 2022.
According to the claim, Apple will not release an improved version of the iPhone small next year. According to insiders, the phone’s dismal sales prompted this decision. According to a new source, the iPhone SE 3 — the successor to the iPhone SE (2020) — will be released in the first half of next year and would include the Apple A14 Bionic SoC. The A13 Bionic processor powers the iPhone SE (2020). Apple’s new affordable phone, the Apple A14 Bionic, will compete with the iPhone 12 series and the current iPad Air.
According to respected analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, Apple’s upcoming iPhone SE will be the company’s cheapest 5G product. According to Kuo, the design will be “essentially the same” as the existing iPhone SE (2020).
In 2016, the first iPhone SE was released to replace the iPhone 5s. It had the Apple A9 SoC but the same physical design as the iPhone 5s. Then, in 2020, Apple released the next-generation iPhone SE (2020), which had a design similar to the iPhone 8, but was powered by the Apple A13 Bionic SoC. The upcoming iPhone SE is expected to keep the same design as the previous model, but with improved internals. The iPhone SE 3 was rumored to have a 4.7-inch display, the same size as the current model iPhone SE, back in April.
