When it comes to smartphone technology, Apple is reckoned to offer unparalleled innovations to consumers. The Cupertino-based tech behemoth is known for coming out with some of the most unique and user-intuitive features on its smartphones each year. This year with the iPhone 14 series, Apple introduced features such as the powerful A16 Bionic chip, Dynamic Island, and satellite connectivity.
Now, all eyes are on the tech giant’s next set of innovations. According to the latest reports, Apple is planning to introduce the fourth-generation of the iPhone SE with a 6.1-inch LCD and a notch cutout on the screen. The latest claim has been made by Display Supply Chain Consultants (DSCC) analyst Ross Young according to a report on MacRumours. Besides, new leaks also suggested that the device will sport a look similar to the iPhone XR.
Young has a track record of accurate predictions about Apple’s plans for its upcoming smartphones. The analyst told the tech portal that Apple is planning to unveil the new iPhone SE model in 2023 with the upgraded 6.1-inch display and a hole-shaped cutout that will feature the front camera.
The inclusion of a bigger display in a way rules out the deployment of capacitive Touch Id Home button which has been a mainstay on the iPhone SE series. However, numerous other reports have claimed that Apple is likely to add a Touch ID Side Button to the new iPhone SE much similar to the ones seen on iPad Mini and iPad Air.
Apple in its recent ‘Far Out’ event unveiled the Dynamic Island on the iPhone 14 Pro models. It is essentially an interactive notch that envelops the iPhone’s front camera and Face ID sensor. The new notch displays alerts, notifications and also app shortcuts. As of now, it is only featured on the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max.
