According to a well-known leaker, Apple should consider whether the development and manufacturing costs for an iPhone SE 4 are worthwhile. After all, the next entry-level iPhone should get a new, more expensive design including Face ID.

The third generation of the iPhone SE has been available since March and is the entry-level model at a price of at least 549 euros into the world of Apple smartphones.

Weak iPhone SE sales

In the face of recession fears and a difficult economic environment, the Cupertino-based group is now rethinking its model policy. To make matters worse, the current iPhone SE 2022 is selling less than expected. The iPhone SE 4 could not be launched until sometime in 2024, or not at all. After all, Apple planned to use the design of the iPhone XR with the notch on the upcoming iPhone SE. As a result, a new display including Face ID is necessary, which in turn increases production costs compared to the current model.

However, it would be unusual for Apple to present a new SE model just a short time after the release of an iPhone SE 3. After all, the group took two years between the second and third iteration. There are even four years between the first iPhone SE and the iPhone SE 2, since the first model was launched in 2016.
