Apple will apparently phase out production for the iPhone X and iPhone SE to replace them with this year’s variants of the iPhone. According to reports, the company will do this in order to meet high demands for its devices. While this is not a new speculation per se, it’s the first time the iPhone SE has been mentioned.
The Cupertino-based company did face production issues with the iPhone X last year. If the new version of the SE also has an OLED display, then it’s possible that Apple would want to cut older versions. In fact, most of the company’s production issues did arise from the lack of supply for OLED panels.
Apple’s primary supplier for these panels is Samsung, while the company also has LG onboard as the secondary supplier of OLED panels.
The 2018 variants of the iPhone are expected in just over a month. The company is said to be prepping three new devices, including a 6.1-inch OLED iPhone X update. The phones should also have a new, faster processor, along with enhancements in software and more AR features.
The pricing for these devices are yet to be known, but you could expect expensive devices.
