Apple might debut iPhone SE 2 in May with no headphone jack

Apple might debut iPhone SE 2 in May with no headphone jack

"Consumers are turning their backs on high-priced smartphones".

According to them, Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing (TSMC), which manufactures chipsets for Apple phones, now has its inventory at record high levels.

Apple's iPhone X is likely to be discontinued this year if earnings from one of the company's top suppliers is anything to go by, according to an analyst. And since the iPhone X's release in November, Apple hasn't divulged unit sales for the model.

As a point of interest, Apple sold 41 million iPhones during the June 2017 quarter, which is to say Apple may see a significant drop-off in iPhone sales if Huberty's projection is anywhere close to being accurate. But it may not be all good news for fans of Apple's smallest smartphone.

It was all enough to spook investors.

Apple fell 3.9 per cent Friday and is now down more than 6 per cent since Wednesday, while other big tech companies - Facebook Inc, Amazon.com Inc, Netflix Inc and Alphabet Inc - are higher.




Of course Apple watchers have heard these doom-and-gloom stories many times before, sometimes involving other products which turned out to be doing OK. Rumors so far have suggested a June unveiling at the WWDC 2018, but those are mostly just based on assumptions. "While the numbers may abate a bit, it's still hot".

There's no details on the specifications but it's likely to feature a standard LCD display rather then the hugely expensive OLED version that's now found in the iPhone X. Last December, there was speculation that Apple had cut orders for the tenth anniversary model by 40%.

That's certainly plausible, although when I saw Campling's comments I quickly recalled an early March survey conducted by Piper Jaffray. Most of the answers Piper Jaffray received were at least related to price. These iPhones will definitely come with an expensive price tag.

The cost of the average iPhone is $796. For what it's worth, popular KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo had also said earlier this year that the handset could reach its end-of-life this summer.

Speaking to the representatives from the website Mac Otakara at the Global Sources Mobile Electronics trade show in Hong Kong, case makers revealed that the next generation of iPhone SE, or the iPhone SE 2 will be launched in May. Another analyst said that the iPhone X will actually be killed off this year after the company faced a number of supply chain issues.
