Apple will gradually phase out phones that have headphone jacks to maximize their profits on accessories that have to be licensed to use the lightening port connection for music. Corporate greed in its purest firm
S7 Edge yay, 05 Nov 2016You have to exercise a bit of common sense and not ask question thar require Tim Cook to make... moreThanks. But, I think you read a little bit too much into my response to his response.
Anonymous, 05 Nov 2016Apple will be gone by the time Samsung announced the galaxy s10Apple won't be the only one gone, we will all probably be blown away by it.
Cool I get to give my money to someone else next year, if this is true
Regardless of his previous predictions this time he is not based in magic.
Iphone SE2 with A10 will destroy Iphone7 with it 3.5 when it is avalible.
greedy greedy apple, least bothered about customers...money money money money is wat they want,

March 2017 not here yet and march is midway between iphoe launches
So it could still come...
BUT the iphone7 is not selling as well as Apple had hoped
Apple may have shot themselve in the foot alos by announcing 3 iPhone in 2017
So soon after the ipjhone 7 could depress sales of the IP7
We know it will be 10 yaers since Apple launched so it will go big on many things , there will be design change as well
So if Apple are worried re iP7 sales it most likely WONT released an SE as that could shift sale to it
If the iP7S /IP8 ? the 2017 version whatever name Apple will drag customes back
Apple will only want you to purchase the SE when sales are VERY good to mop up the market
If not released in 2017 it will be low sales of the 7 being the reason, DIFINITELY 03/2018!
it can't be released anywhere near September as sales affect iPhones
Apple are NOT Samsung and rely on only one phone, any variation only add to the total
sale, only offer somenthing new when your you DON'T have to offer a new phone
Anonymous, 05 Nov 2016Apple will be gone by the time Samsung announced the galaxy s10Apple make more profit than Samsung so I doubt that very much.
SKR..., 05 Nov 2016Yeah,there was no use actually. Who would still buy that microscopic phone and still stain hi... moreExcept for the fact that it kept being sold out in many countries because of the great demand for a compact and powerful phone. The most probable reason for apple not refreshing it after another year is that the profit margins are too small for them. Even though the sales were good.
Paul60, 05 Nov 2016Are they getting rid of the model? My understanding from the article is that they are not upda... moreYeah, they'll continue to sell it. But they'll never release a proper successor most likely, since there are already rumours of a small iPhone being released with the next iPhone release.
Instead of waiting for any other samsung series phone to explode apple should start making better phones. They won't get Lucky every time.
Updating SE series (with larger screen) would have been a minor step in right direction. They say I phone 7 was the most anticipated phone of 2016. Now forget about pixel, samaung, and LG even huawei has better camera than IP7. Other than OS and speed Iphone has nothing special to go for.

Oh, and Appleinsider seems to have misread it. It is the first quarter 2017 that Kuo predicted to have 40-50m sales, since it was the first quarter 2016 that had 51.2m sales. The current quarter includes holiday sales and is supposed to be their best quarter, last year it was 70m. .
But anyway, the reason they're ditching se is probably because the margins were too small. They'll probably launch a small phone with iPhone 7s (as per rumours) and make it more expensive than se.
is still people love 4 inch display over 4.7
or 3.5 inch more than 4 inch display ???
The smartphone sales growth game is over for Apple. They'll probably try to go more into services and content to make up for it. Their car plans fell apart too, and they'll resign to the software of cars instead.
Meanwhile Google is taking a different approach, and going from software into hardware. Although they aren't being 'forced' like Apple is.
Yeah,there was no use actually. Who would still buy that microscopic phone and still stain his eye!
