Apple to launch four new iPhones this year?

Apple will not kill the iPhone X this year – Report

If you were counting on a new iPhone SE arriving this spring, maybe it's time to start making alternative plans.

The analyst doesn't say an iPhone SE 2 definitely won't happen, but isn't being too optimistic. Now, KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, shared new research notes that outline both new and existing predictions about these new iPhones.

"With three new models in the pipeline for the second half of 2018, we believe Apple may have used up its development resources". Apple also reportedly cut down iPhone 8 production back in October, after reports came out stating that the iPhone 7 was still out-selling it.

Reports that Apple will stop production of the iPhone X this year are untrue, according to The Investor.

While the 6.1-inch version certainly sounds like a high-end iPhone, Kuo claims that it is, instead, supposed to be a more affordable version of the $999 (£999) iPhone X, featuring an aluminium frame, a lack of 3D Touch, a single rather than a dual-lens camera setup and 3GB of RAM.

Apple's stock dipped slightly in premarket trading Monday after a report said it would halve production for the iPhone X in the first three months of 2018. Kuo suggests that Apple wants to avoid that kind of delay in 2018.

It might not be all bad news, however. The OLED models, on the other hand, will feature a 6.0 to 6.1-inch screen and another with a 6.4 to 6.5-inch display. With the home button gone, this essentially signals the end of the era of the design that Apple kept throughout all the models of the iPhone from the first one back in 2007 till the iPhone 8 released in 2017.

Not only will Apple's decision to cut iPhone X production have an obvious impact on its earnings and sales outlook, but, according to this morning's report, it may also "have a domino effect" on the company's various supply chain partners, as well, which could even result in a massive liability for the tech giant.
