Apple is not satisfied with the sales of the iPhone X

Apple's next to be $450 iPhone SE2?
June Sullivan | 01 May, 2018, 04:59

By now, almost six months after the iPhone X release, it's clear that the supercycle isn't going to happen.

Investors now fear that iPhone X sales are falling, if not quite leaping, off a cliff. And while you may think that $3 difference in the manufacture of the display doesn't warrant removal of a much-used feature, do remember that Apple makes millions of these.

Although, a recent report suggests that this iPhone variant also spells an end to the 3D Touch feature, which made Apple's devices more advanced compared to standard touchscreen phones.

Following Apple's habit of releasing a new phone every September, the new 2018 edition flagship phone could be unveiled this September. Previously, the analyst worked at Digitimes as a senior analyst at the industrial publication. Starting in 2019, Apple could remove the feature from all iPhone models, according to Kuo.

Ming-Chi Kuo has a mixed record with his Apple product predictions.

Some analysts blame the $999 iPhone X. For 2018, Kuo has predicted that Apple will release three new iPhones, a 5.8-inch OLED iPhone, a 6.1-inch LCD iPhone, and a 6.5-inch OLED iPhone.

Both devices will reportedly continue to offer "3D Touch" functionality. Though it's hard to imagine for anyone to be disappointed if this feature was to be removed, there are a bunch of 3D Touch loyalists out there, as Gizmodo notes, and they swear by its convenience.

You will still have to rely on lightning earbuds or get yourself a Bluetooth Headphone for the cordless audio experience. Apple's tablet line also uses the same long press system.

Bernstein analyst Toni Sacconaghi said weakness in the current iPhone lineup was caused by a structural slowdown in the growth of new customers and the high pricing of the X model.

The primary focus on the latest sofware update is to fix an issue where touch input wouldn't work on the iPhone 8 that were serviced with "non-geniune replacement displays".

With a rumored price tag of $450, the SE 2 will use Apple's A10 Fusion chip.
