Analyst Predicts Apple Will Discontinue iPhone X This Year

Apple's iPhone SE as seen on its official site

However, Apple always finds a workaround to satisfy everyone's needs: shortly after the iPhone 6 came out, a less expensive alternative, the iPhone SE was introduced as well. Although, as per the reports and leaks, we could expect this phone to see in the market as early as next month.

After talking to iPhone case manufacturers at the Global Sources Mobile Electronics trade-show, Japanese blog Macotakara claimed Apple is making a second-generation iPhone SE, with plans to announce the device in May. Campling believes that the problem with the iPhone X is the price. Apple dropped the headphone jack on iPhones starting with the iPhone 7, but (for now) still sells the original iPhone SE and similarly spec'd iPhone 6s which both have headphone jacks.

Would you buy the iPhone SE 2 if this spec sheet proved accurate? The low-end Apple iPhone 9 could be priced at $550, according to KGI Securities Ming-Chi Kuo, widely acknowledged as the top Apple analyst in the business. The dimensions of the new iPhone SE 2 would be similar to the original iPhone SE. To set up the Face ID on an iPhone, the costing of the device would be increased. iPhone SE is designed for the people who wants a budget-friendly phone. The Touch ID would be placed at the home button and there would be no notch on the display. Previous reports indicated that the iPhone SE 2 will be manufactured in India, and it will be targeted for emerging markets such as India and Asia Pacific. It is a popular model, topping customer satisfaction surveys, becoming the top-selling smartphone in the United Kingdom in the year it launched, and Apple revealed last year that it is a strong performer in emerging markets like India. However, reports reveal that the Cupertino major may be launching the phone at Apple WWDC event scheduled to happen in the month of May.

Air Pollution Improves Across West Virginia, Smog Worsens
Charlotte was ranked the 41st most polluted city in the country for ozone, which can increase the risk of lung disease and asthma. La Plata County in Colorado and Duchesne and Uintah counties in Utah all received an "F" grade due to high levels of ozone.

Evidence so far, however, suggests iOS 12 may be supported as far back as the iPhone 5s (which is a chip behind the iPhone 6 and two chips behind the iPhone 6s and current iPhone SE).

All eyes are on the iPhone SE, which is overdue a refresh after it first launched in March 2016. But, what we do know is that the device will be an affordable one, much like its predecessor iPhone SE which is now selling for around Rs 17,999 approx in the Indian market.
