Apple was planning to launch an all-new iPhone SE in 2024. It will be the 4th generation iPhone SE, but it looks like it won’t be. It looks like the iPhone SE 4 has been cancelled.
iPhone SE 4 seems to be canceled due to poor sales of current-generation model
This information is actually from a very reputable source.it comes from Ming-Chi Kuo, a well-known analyst who is rarely wrong when it comes to Apple information. Apple seems to have canceled the production of the 4th generation iPhone SE.
Indeed, he said Apple will cancel or postpone iPhone SE 4 plans. So it might not be completely dead in the water, but it looks like it.Kuo also said this is probably because “mid-to-low-end shipments of his iPhones have always been below expectations. ‘, he adds.
Apple’s more affordable iPhones aren’t selling as well as the company expected
So what iPhones are they? iPhone SE 3, iPhone 13 Mini, and iPhone 14 Plus to name a few. They don’t sell very well, so this decision on Apple’s part isn’t all that surprising…if true.
Apple actually canceled the ‘Mini’ series of phones after the iPhone 13 Mini sales slump. Many people love the company’s “mini” phones, but it seems that Apple isn’t doing enough to keep them.
However, the iPhone SE series could suffer the same fate. The iPhone SE 3 hasn’t sold well for the company, and it’s understandable. It has a really outdated design, horrible battery life, etc. Apple didn’t go all out to deliver a very attractive product, and users seem to have reacted to it.
On the other hand, the iPhone 14 Plus doesn’t do enough to differentiate itself from the iPhone 13, and when it comes to the “Mini” series, the majority of people prefer larger phones. Therefore, it is unrealistic to expect results different from those obtained by Apple.
iPhone SE 4 was supposed to repackage the iPhone XR
Incidentally, the iPhone SE 4 was rumored to be essentially a repackaged iPhone XR. It was supposed to be the first iPhone SE to ditch the home button.
Note that this is not a confirmation or anything. Kuo is usually right, but that’s no guarantee.
