Apple’s affordable iPhones are not things you see every now and then. Apple doesn’t make many affordable items. But, manufacturing the next affordable iPhone is expected to be canceled or postponed. So, why did Apple cancel or postpone 2024 iPhone SE 4? Let’s find out.
Previous versions of the iPhone SE that looked like the iPhone 8 suggest that the iPhone SE 4 would have had a full-screen display. This new iPhone SE was supposed to look like the iPhone XR. According to several leaks, the phone was also supposed to feature A15 or A16 Bionic chips. This configuration cannot come with a low production cost. This could also be the reason Apple is scraping the production of the iPhone SE 4.
Why Did Apple Cancel or Postpone 2024 iPhone SE 4?
Ming-Chi Kuo is an Apple analyst. And through a series of Tweets, Ming-Chi Kuo said that Apple will either cancel or postpone the plan to mass produce the 2024 iPhone SE 4. According to Ming-Chi Kuo, this decision is taken most probably because the mid and low-range iPhones like SE 3, iPhone 13 mini, and iPhone 14 Plus don’t sell as per expectation.
The features like full-screen LCD or OLED displays on a low-range iPhone would adversely affect the ROI of Apple. The most talked about 2023 recession has to be the reason Apple is rethinking the positioning of the iPhone SE 4. It will not be wise to manufacture a fairly feature-rich yet affordable phone during a recession considering the fact that the shipment of low-cost iPhones is lower than expected.
I hope now you get why Apple canceled or Postponed 2024 iPhone SE 4. The speculated upcoming recession is the reason many companies are rethinking their future plans. Although, I am hopeful that good things will still be coming on the other side of the 2023 recession. Many people might have to lose their jobs before that, nevertheless! We will cross the bridge when we come to it.
