Don't expect the iPhone SE 3 in the first half of 2021, says Apple analyst Kuo

Don't expect the iPhone SE 3 in the first half of 2021, says Apple analyst Kuo
The iPhone SE (2020) is a great budget-friendly iPhone, but it seems that we will not be seeing an iPhone SE 3 (or iPhone SE 2021 maybe?) in the first half of next year, reports TechRadar.

Ming-Chi Kuo, a reputable Apple analyst, has published a new research report warning electronics suppliers not to wait for an updated iPhone SE in the first half of 2021. The analyst did not say anything about a possible appearance of the iPhone SE 3 in the second half of 2021; however, it’s highly unlikely as we would expect Apple to focus its attention on the iPhone 13 series.

Not a lot is known about the next iPhone SE, but for those who have been willing to see a refreshed version of it soon, there might be some disappointment. At this time, it’s not expected that Apple is going to switch to a yearly refresh cycle for the budget iPhone. It could be another four years before the iPhone SE 3 shows up.

What’s more, Kuo also says that there will be fierce competition for supplying iPhone 13 components.
