It will appear that in contrast to Apple’s flagship iPhone fashions, the corporate doesn’t have plans to refresh its iPhone SE collection on an annual foundation. A tweet by Ross Younger of DisplaySearch and DSCC, he claims that the earliest we would be capable to count on an iPhone SE refresh can be in 2022.
To be truthful, this appears to be roughly according to how Apple has approached the iPhone SE previously. The primary-gen iPhone SE initially debuted in 2016 and it took Apple 4 years earlier than they launched a brand new mannequin, which got here earlier this yr. This means that Apple isn’t essentially seeking to make the iPhone SE a yearly factor.
We’re undecided why Apple isn’t too eager on refreshing the iPhone SE yearly, however maybe it may very well be resulting from prices or possibly even availability of parts. The 2020 iPhone SE makes use of the A13 chipset which debuted in 2019’s iPhones. It’s secure to imagine that the subsequent iPhone SE might additionally use the subsequent previous-gen chipset, the A14.
Like DSCC, Mizuho Securities additionally says no new iPhone SE mannequin in 2021, have to attend until 2022. They do say all iPhone 13 fashions could have built-in contact, BOE will be a part of LGD on each 6.1″ fashions, mini and 13 will undertake 12 Professional Max digital camera sensors, & sensor dimension will enhance on Professional. pic.twitter.com/G9f6cz8dm0

Nevertheless, the A14 not solely powers the 2020 iPhones, however the iPads, and it’s also anticipated to energy Apple’s new Apple Silicon Mac computer systems, so maybe there aren’t sufficient parts to go round. It’s doable that Apple may very well be ready for the discharge of the A15 earlier than reusing the A14 for the iPhone SE.
That is simply hypothesis on our half, however for those who wished to get your fingers on a funds iPhone, then the present iPhone SE is just about your solely choice, except you don’t thoughts ready till 2022.
