Apple will discontinue iPhone SE and iPhone X, report says

Apple will discontinue iPhone SE and iPhone X, report says

The case maker had earlier revealed the Galaxy S9 renders ahead of its launch and now, it has confirmed that Apple is working on a cheaper iPhone X variant. The analysts believe Apple will stop selling the iPhone SE in September 2018 while announcing three new iPhones, including an all-new 6.1-inch budget iPhone X. "We continue to hear that upgrade activity over the past", analysts John Donovan and Steve Mullane explain.

"The fate of the iPhone SE has become increasingly uncertain as time goes on, as the current model has not been updated since it was first released in March 2016".


The analysts refer to the three 2018 iPhones as iPhone 9, iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Plus, which are extremely unrealistic names, especially the "11" part. However, it can been seen that the budget-friendly phone is still enabled with the newest Apple Face ID recognition. It will bring the highly-anticipated features from the expensive iPhone X at a price that will be more accessible to the masses.

The latest investor note from equity research boutique BlueFin Research noted that Apple might shift their manufacturing focus on the upcoming iPhone 9, iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Plus. This buyback authorization authorizes the iPhone maker to buy up to 11.9% of its shares through open market purchases. The iPhone SE will follow it. I keep my phone in Low Power mode nearly constantly simply because I don't need the higher clock speed on the SoC and it has such a positive impact on endurance. Streaming Netflix or Amazon Prime video (and no, I have no problem watching video on the iPhone SE) in low power mode also significantly extends the overall battery life. In keeping up with this trend, Apple probably doesn't think it's logical to keep producing a 4-inch phone or the $999 iPhone X which no one will buy once the new generation is officially out. However, the highest tier of iPhone X and X Plus will remain with it's premeium and iconic colors: silver, gold, rose gold and black. However, it would not have the same dual camera as the iPhone X, or even the slightly lesser quality iPhone 8 dual camera.
