Apple is expected to launch a low-cost iPhone in March this year. This would be an upgrade to the iPhone SE. Apple is said to continue this next year too with another low-cost iPhone. This one is said to feature a Touch ID button but it will be placed on the side of the iPhone.

Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo (via MacRumors) said this 2021 iPhone will feature an LCD display like the upcoming iPhone 9 (iPhone SE 2). Kuo also said the Touch ID button on this iPhone will be embedded on the side. It appears that Apple will still not opt for Face ID for its low-cost iPhone.
