Apple will not update its iPhone SE in 2017, despite the device proving to be a hit with consumers since its launch in March this year.
That’s according to analyst Ming Chi Kuo, known for getting his Apple predictions on the money.
He claims that Apple will instead look to bolster its profits by asking Samsung and other component makers to lower their costs while the price of the iPhone SE will remain the same.
Apple is also said to be focusing its efforts on a wholly revamped iPhone range, set for release in late 2017.
Dubbed the iPhone 8, the devices will come in three sizes, according to recent rumours.
This includes a 4.7–inch flat screen model, a curved screen 5.5–inch device and a new, 5–inch model with a standard display.
2017 sees Apple celebrate the tenth anniversary of the flagship iPhone, with the company expected to pull out all the stops in order to take on ever improving competition from Google and Samsung.
