Recently, there are many reports about the next iPhone SE models and the new iMac Pro with Apple Silicon chips. It is true that the information is not confirmed, but apparently, there is a grain of truth in every rumor. New rumors heat up the atmosphere even more.
The latest reports on these devices announce their imminent premiere. The first production trials of the third generation iPhone SE are expected to begin soon. Work on the new iMacs is even more advanced.
3rd generation iPhone SE
According to the Chinese website MyDrivers, sub-suppliers and suppliers are getting ready to start trial production of a series of new Apple smartphone models. No specific date has been given, but is expected to start “in the near future“. The premiere of the new iPhone SE is to take place in the first quarter of next year.
There are two main streams of rumors about this smartphone on the web. The first is that the new SE will resemble the current generation. It will therefore be equipped with a 4.7-inch screen and a Home button with Touch ID. According to the second trend, the iPhone XR housing will be used, so the screen will be larger and the frames around it narrower. In this case, the Touch ID fingerprint reader would be integrated with an on and off button on the side of the smartphone.
The original iPhone SE was modeled on the iPhone 5s and had a 4-inch LCD screen with a resolution of 640 x 1136. Under the hood was the Apple A9 SoC, unlike the A7 with which the iPhone 5s was shipped. A 12 MP camera graced the back of the phone, while a 1.2 MP camera was on the front of the phone.
Either way, one thing is for sure – the next iPhone SE will require a significant increase in battery capacity, especially if we know that the iPhone SE (2022) will support 5G connectivity. For the same reason, users of this phone will probably have to settle for a traditional refresh rate of 60 Hz.
iPhone SE is a popular choice for those who want a smaller and more compact iPhone, but do not want to spend money on much more expensive Mini models. As the Mini series is expected to drop out of the 2022 model lineup, the iPhone SE could further gain in popularity as potentially the only choice for small phone fans. The price of the current PhoneiPhone SE series in the US market starts at $ 399, so the new model is expected to debut at the same price.
27-inch iMac Pro with Apple Silicon
On the DigiTimes website, you can read that sub-suppliers have already started delivering components to companies that will deal with the final assembly of new computers. This means that series production is about to start.
The new iMac Pro is to be equipped with the M1 Pro or M1 Max chip, which is the same that was used in this year’s MacBook Pro models. The novelty will be support for ProMotion, i.e. adaptive image refresh.
