Apple is going all 5G for its upcoming iPhones. According to a new report from Nikkei, all iPhone models starting in 2022 (starting with the iPhone 14) will come with 5G support. The latest report mentions that the information has been confirmed by the nearest source of development. The report highlights that Capertino will not launch any new 4G models from next year, including the tech giant SE lineup.
Android smartphone makers are already getting aggressive in bringing 5G phones to the market and according to a new report, Apple now seems to be following the same path. Android phone makers from Realmy, Samsung, Xiaomi, among others, are launching not only premium 5G phones but also budget devices in support of advanced networks. In a recent press briefing, Realm India CEO Madhav Seth confirmed the launch of a 5G phone priced at around Rs 10,000.
Cheap 5G iPhone is coming
The latest report hints that even Apple will launch a cheaper 5G iPhone under its SEO lineup from next year. The same report further reveals that Apple will not launch an updated version of the iPhone Minute next year. This means that no iPhone 14 mini or even versions will come next year. The reasons given by the sources for shutting down the iPhone Mini series are “bad sales”.
Several rumors and leaks have suggested that Apple will launch four new iPhone models under the iPhone 13 series this year. The models are referred to as iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Pro, iPhone 14 Pro Max and cheaper iPhone 13 Mini. The upcoming iPhone 13 series is likely to be released this fall, sometime around September and October. Apple has not yet announced the launch date of the iPhone 13 series.
Following the iPhone 13 series, the technology giant may launch the iPhone SE3 in the first half of next year. Rumor has it that the iPhone SE3 may feature Apple’s upcoming A14 Bionic SC, iOS 15 software, 5G support, and similar design to the iPhone SE (2020). Analyst Kuo previously revealed that the upcoming iPhone SE3 will be the cheapest 5G phone so far from the brand.
