It could appear that not like 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 anticipate an iPhone SE refresh could be in 2022.
To be truthful, this appears to be roughly consistent with how Apple has approached the iPhone SE up to now. 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 12 months. This implies that Apple isn’t essentially trying to make the iPhone SE a yearly factor.
We’re unsure why Apple isn’t too eager on refreshing the iPhone SE yearly, however maybe it may very well be attributable to prices or perhaps even availability of elements. 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 may have built-in contact, BOE will be part of LGD on each 6.1″ fashions, mini and 13 will undertake 12 Professional Max digicam sensors, & sensor dimension will enhance on Professional. pic.twitter.com/G9f6cz8dm0

Nonetheless, the A14 not solely powers the 2020 iPhones, however the iPads, and additionally it is anticipated to energy Apple’s new Apple Silicon Mac computer systems, so maybe there aren’t sufficient elements to go round. It’s attainable 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 arms on a finances iPhone, then the present iPhone SE is just about your solely choice, except you don’t thoughts ready till 2022.
