Apple to stop production of iPhone X

Apple to stop production of iPhone X

For now, we only know that Apple is preparing for the annual Apple Worldwide Developers Conference to be held in June 2018 and that unidentified iPhone models have been entered into the Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC) database, according to Consomac.

Japanese blog Macotakara has published new details about the rumored iPhone SE 2 based on details shared by a case maker source.

The iPhone SE update is also not expected to feature a 3.5mm headphone jack.

"Versions of iPhone running iOS 11 are listed with the model numbers A1920, A1921, A1984, A2097, A2098, A2099, A2101, A2103, A2104, A2105, and A2106". Application for registration of new models of iPhone was submitted yesterday.

Notably, the iPhone maker sometimes uses different model numbers for the same type of iPhone.

The iPhone SE 2 is expected to be manufactured in India, which should allow Apple to price it competitively. The report claimed that there will be two variants of the phone, 32GB and 128GB, with the handset expected to retail at $349. The phone will be powered by Apple's A10 Fusion chip and that is almost 40 percent faster than the chip that powers the current iPhone SE, the A9 SoC.

Latest rumors suggest the iPhone SE 2 will come with a 4.2-inch display, 0.2-inches bigger than the iPhone SE.

The chipmaker's current situation could give investors concerns over AMS (Austria Mikro Systeme), Apple's key supplier of 3-D sensing technology in the iPhone X. The 3-D sensors are key for the Face ID feature that lets you unlock the device by looking at it.

The upcoming iPhone SE might have a glass back with support for wireless charging.
