    Apple is expected to bring its third-generation iPhone SE to the market as soon as the first quarter of 2022. A paywalled report of a Taiwanese publication, DigiTimes has reported that VCM (voice coil motor) suppliers see no cutback in orders for the new iPhones. The report further mentions that according to the industry sources, besides the VCM components, even other smartphone component suppliers have seen no cutbacks in orders from the company and are gearing up for shipments for the next-gen iPhone SE which is slated to launch in the upcoming quarter.

    Recently, the famous Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo revealed that Apple is expected to bring its new iPhone SE models in 2022 and next in 2023. According to Kuo, the 2022 iPhone SE will be released in the first quarter of the year and will have 3GB of memory, while the 2023 iPhone SE will have more major enhancements, such as a larger display than the 1H22 SE's 4.7-inch and 4GB of memory support against the current 3GB memory.

    Upcoming iPhone SE features

    Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo stated earlier this week that the next iPhone SE will have the same 4.7-inch display size and 3GB of RAM as the current model, and that the new model will also have a Touch ID home button and bigger bezels. 5G compatibility and a faster processor is what you can expect in the upcoming iPhone SE, which will be significant aspects of the next iPhone SE, according to Kuo. It will most likely be the A15 chip that debuted in iPhone 13 models and the latest iPad mini.

    Display analyst Ross Young has revealed that Apple is likely to release a new 4.7-inch iPhone SE with 5G connection in 2022, followed by a successor iPhone SE model with a 5.7-inch to 6.1-inch LCD display in 2024. According to Young, the launch of the larger iPhone SE model was originally planned for 2023 but got postponed to 2024, although Kuo now believes it will still be released in 2023.

    However, the cumulative leak reports suggests that we can hopefully expect the iPhone SE in the coming year, but since there is nothing official about this information, we can’t really rely fully on it.
