Last year, Apple introduced its first line of 5G-capable phones and it makes sense that the trend is carried over to its next models. Nikkei Asia reports that next year’s iPhone lineup will consist of fully 5G models, including an entry-level iPhone SE redesigned with the A15 chipset and 5G connectivity. The device would retain its 4.7-inch LCD screen and will carry the same iPhone 8-style chassis and is expected to launch in the first half of 2022.
Apple is also expected to abandon its iPhone mini by 2022, which has recorded disappointing sales over the past year. A mini should still be released this fall. Looking at the 2021 iPhone lineup, Nikkei Asia reports that Apple could offer a more affordable 6.7-inch non-Pro model. The second half of 2021 is also expected to bring new MacBook Pro and AirPod.
