Apple’s iPhone SE 4 Launch May Be Cancelled
According to the latest information this week, Apple may not have moved forward with its claimed plans for the 4th generation iPhone SE in 2024. The analyst Ming-Chi Kuo highlighted an intriguing development that could have a significant effect on Apple’s upcoming SE model. According to Kuo, Apple may decide not to release the iPhone SE model in 2023 at all and instead concentrate on its existing lineup, which continues to be in high demand and for which the company is having trouble keeping up with demand due to production concerns.
According to Kuo, the next iPhone SE edition is expected to have an entirely new design and an iPhone X-like screen, which will inevitably drive up the price of the SE form and undermine Apple’s argument for making the larger production expenditure. Apple often uses parts from older iPhones for the SE models and upgrades the hardware inside, but the 2023 model was expected to be a major upgrade, which would mean a higher price.
Low demand for iPhone SE models has led to disappointing sales results for the corporation, which is still another compelling argument against releasing another iPhone SE model in the market the following year. The lower cost of production is also part of Apple’s new plan to cut costs in order to deal with the upcoming uncertain economy.

My latest survey indicates that Apple will likely cancel or postpone the mass production plan for the 2024 iPhone SE 4. I think this is due to the consistently lower-than-expected shipments of mid-to-low-end iPhones (e.g., SE 3, 13 mini, and 14 Plus),
According to numerous industry reports, the corporation has recently shifted its market focus to include more expensive products that are generating demand. Examples include the iPhone Pro and Pro Max variants, which outsell the standard and Plus models. In any case, 2024 is still a long way off, and Apple already has a long list of priorities for 2019 that demand further attention. As the date for the EU verdict draws nearer, USB-C charging will finally be available on the upcoming iPhone models. It also needs to find a means to shift production away from China; Vietnam and India are seen as the best potential replacement centers.
