Apple allegedly killed the iPhone SE 2

Apple iPhone SE will no longer get a successor, claim recent rumors mid-June 2018
Apple iPhone SE will no longer get a successor
Despite all the leaks and rumors about the successor of the iPhone SE, it seems that Apple has recently decided to stop its development. Insiders familiar with the inner workings of the Cupertino giant mention that three other handsets are in the making, all featuring large screens (between 5.8 and 6.5 inches in size).

Apple seems to be unable to understand that most of those who were buying the iPhone SE did it because of its compact size, and not due to its price. Now, it looks like three new iPhone models are on their way, including an affordable handset with an LCD screen, but this affordable phone is not going to be the iPhone SE 2.

According to Olixar, insiders familiar with the matter have just confirmed that the three upcoming iPhone models will hit the market as the company's largest handsets so far. If the rumors turn out to be true, these devices will be the following: a 5.8-inch iPhone X successor (iPhone X 2, but maybe iPhone XI would be an even better name), a 6.5-inch iPhone X Plus with an OLED screen, as well as an affordable 6.1-inch iPhone with an LCD display.

The iPhone SE 2 was supposed to be announced this spring, and then the rumors moved its official unveil date to early June, at WWDC. Sadly, it missed this date as well. In the end, Apple will probably unleash the three models mentioned above this fall. Obviously, nothing is carved in stone yet since there is enough time until then, so if you are one of those waiting for a compact iPhone, be sure that this is not the end of all hope.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
