Leaked photos reveal budget iPhone SE 2 complete with headphone jack

Leaked photos reveal budget iPhone SE 2 complete with headphone jack

In a research note reported by Cult of Mac, Kuo stated that Apple's supply chain had informed him that the lower-priced 6.1-inch iPhone expected this fall would debut a Cover Glass Sensor (CGS) process, which means that the touch sensor would not be integrated with the actual display anymore.

Analysts say Apple should boost its capital return plan with its second-quarter report thanks to repatriated foreign profits.

While results on Tuesday will likely show slower Apple growth, this broader iPhone strategy could revive sales when the new devices come out toward the end of 2018.

Other products speculated by Kuo based on his supply chain sources include the 10.5-inch iPad Pro, Apple Watch Series 2 with GPS, Apple Pencil, 12-inch MacBook, MacBook Pro with Touch Bar, iPhone SE and much more.

Apple may be forced to abandon its 3D Touch technology in an effort to cut iPhone costs.

The device would also not take over other things from the iPhone X, to reduce the price.

The consensus estimate among analysts is for Apple to have sold 53 million iPhones for the quarter ending in March, up only slightly from the 50.8 million iPhones sold in the same period a year earlier.

Morgan Stanley recently slashed its forecast for iPhone sales in the June quarter to 34 million, implying a 17 per cent year-on-year decline. Morgan Stanley analysts think demand for the iPhone X, 8 and 8 Plus to be "weaker ... ahead of September's expected new iPhone launch".

Apple spent five years developing 3D Touch on its newer iPhone models. 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. The company is also working on technology such as touchless gesture control which could be a replacement to the 3D touch when it becomes available. For instance, a hard-press on the Photos app brings up a few options, including the Most Recent folder, Favorites, One Year Ago, and Search.
