Although next year’s iPhone SE isn’t expected to offer much excitement, there’s every reason to believe that Apple has a bigger and better update waiting in the wings that could come as early as 2023.
In the short term, we’re expecting a minor refresh to the current second-generation iPhone SE that will add 5G and bring it up to current processor specs — likely packing in an A15 — but not much else. It’s expected to retain the relatively staid iPhone 8 design, and likely won’t gain any improvements to the screen or camera either. If Apple were still releasing “S” models, this would be more of an “iPhone SE 2S” than an “iPhone SE 3.”
After that, however, it could be a whole new ballgame for Apple’s wallet-friendly iPhone model, with a significant redesign and quite likely a few other things never seen on an iPhone. Read on for five things that we expect to see when the true next-generation iPhone SE arrives in 2023.
