iPhone SE and iPhone X Will Discontinue To Give Way for 2018 iPhones – Latest Leaks More Detailed
The fall announcement of the tech giant Apple is coming near for the new 2018 iPhone models. The company seems to increase the production of the next models like never before in the face of disappointing sales. Many speculations are beginning to gain its speed.
According to 9to5Mac, the boutique research firm BlueFin Research Partners and their analysts John Donovan and Steve Mullane claimed that the iPhone SE and iPhone X will be discontinued this year to give way and focus more towards the 2018 iPhones—the iPhone 9, iPhone 11, and iPhone 11 Plus. There is an overall pent-up demand for the new devices for 2018 to 2019. This is the main reason that larger 2019 builds will potentially happen due to the lack of upgrade activity over the past few years.
The duo even predicted that 91 million units of the new 2018 iPhones are to be built and combined in the latter two quarters of this year. The company is speculated to also plan this manufacturing, and another 92 million units in the first two-quarters next year will be followed. This is far larger than the normal manufacturing cycles.
If this will surely occur, both the cheaper iPhone SE and iPhone X will be discontinued, especially the latter in the third quarter of this year. Meanwhile, the iPhone 8 devices will stick around at the lower-end of the market.
The LCD-based iPhone 9 is expected to have 28 million units alongside two different models of OLED-based devices, namely the iPhone 11 and 11 Plus. Then, another 63 million units in the fourth quarter, 46 million units in the first quarter of next year, and another 46 million units in the second quarter. Overall, if the three new models are combined, the exact shipments will be around 20 million, 60 million, 45 million, and 40 million for the upcoming four quarters.
