Apple has released various new smartphones over the years, and while the Pro and Pro Plus varieties have been the most popular iPhones, the iPhone SE, which starts at Rs 49,900, has been a favorite among college students and youngsters.

But now for the terrible news. According to Ming-Chi Kuo, Apple may cancel the debut of its forthcoming SE model, the iPhone Se 4, in 2023. Yes, the article goes on to say that due to the phone’s lower-than-expected demand, the tech giant may just delay its release until 2024 rather than next year.


According to my most recent poll, Apple will most likely cancel or postpone the 2024 iPhone SE 4 mass production plan. Kuo speculated that this was due to persistently lower-than-expected shipments of mid-to-low-end iPhones (e.g., SE 3, 13 mini, and 14 Plus).

The new revelations come only weeks after the Internet has been humming with rumors about the iPhone SE 4. The announcement is disappointing because much was expected from Apple’s forthcoming phone. It is expected to include a 6.1-inch 720p LCD display.

Further Claims

In his tweet, Kuo claimed that Apple’s full-screen design for the iPhone SE 4 will necessitate greater costs and selling prices, which could lead the tech giant to reconsider the device. There have been concerns that the SE 4’s full-screen design may result in increased costs/selling prices. As a result, Apple may need to reassess the SE 4’s product positioning and return on investment, according to Kuo.

According to the source, Apple may be trying to save superfluous new product development costs. It will assist the business handle the hurdles ahead next year. The forthcoming iPhone SE 4 will have an iPhone XR-like design. It will have a larger screen that could be OLED, according to Display Chain Analyst Ross Young. This, however, would eventually increase the selling price. As a result, the current product positioning of the iPhone SE needs to get changed.

All of these factors contribute to Kuo’s belief that the iPhone SE 4 would be delayed or canceled. Remember that Apple’s older gadgets continue to sell well and are popular in areas such as India. For example, the iPhone 13 remained a popular model this year. It’s because the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Plus used the same chipset as the previous model.
