Throughout the year we have seen several rumors regarding the arrival of a Touch ID sensor under the iPhone screen with the models that we will see presented in September, but now Ming-Chi Kuo this characteristic is carried over to generation 2022 (or the ‘iPhone 14’, if the names continue to evolve as before).
In his latest investor report, Kuo comments that the iPhone 13 lineup we’ll see in September will be very similar to the one we have this year and that will continue to include a “mini” model for the last time
Bigger, more affordable screens and a new iPhone SE for 2023
Another novelty of 2022, there would be a 6.7-inch “non-Pro” model, for those who don’t want to have to spend the price of the ‘Pro Max’ model just to have a big screen (it would cost around 900 or 1000 dollars). So there would be four models, two for each screen size and with the “Pro” sporting that Touch ID sensor under the screen that has been rumored for so long.
Kuo also has data from the The next iPhone SE, which will be released in spring 2022. It would keep the same design but would integrate a 5G modem, with a very competitive price as the main asset. We would also see an evolution of the iPhone 11 which would become another SE model in 2023, expanding or at least changing the lineup.
Overall, it looks like 2021 will be a year with very linear updates iPhone, and that next year will be the year we start to see model changes. As long as Kuo is right, of course.
