As per the latest predictions from Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman, the California-based Cupertino giant Apple may have the latest entry-level iPhone in the works next to a whole new design of its iPhone 13 series.
Gurman reported about the iPhone 13 series and what could be in store for its next-gen iPhone 14 in his per week Power On newsletter. Unfortunately, it can be said with confidence that the iPhone maker did not make any enormous leaps forward with the iPhone 13.
Moreover, the company’s most important updates were the brand new A15 Bionic chip, longer-lasting batteries, more enhanced cameras with the latest Cinematic Mode, and smaller notch.
Furthermore, the iPhone 13 series’s Pro models also come with a smooth 120Hz ProMotion display. However, Gurman considers this a sign of much greater modifications ready to roll out with the iPhone 14 next autumn.
According to Gurman in his newsletter,
“Apple will have to get more dramatic with next year’s overhaul, especially as competition mounts. Samsung Electronics Co., Google and others are now unleashing their best. Samsung is pushing foldable phones, and Apple is working on its own foldable device that it could release in a few years”.
He further added,
“The minor changes this year also mean that Apple’s engineers were working behind the scenes on bigger things that will take more time. With the iPhone 14, you can expect new entry-level and Pro models and a complete redesign”.
We can only suppose the entry-level smartphone Gurman mentions is the next iPhone SE and the iPhone SE 3. The iPhone SE 2 successor is already reported to be released in the first half of 2022, reducing the latency period between SE models from four years to two (via DigiTimes).
The native SE was released in March 2016. On the other hand, the SE 2 reached in April 2020; that’s why we wouldn’t be amazed to watch the next mid-range iPhone release in spring as a mid-year launch between Apple’s annual flagship releases.
However, we’ll need to expect the launch until next year to watch if it releases its next entry-level iPhone.
