Throughout the year we have seen several rumors about the arrival of a Touch ID sensor under the iPhone screen with the models that we will see presented this September, but now Ming-Chi Kuo that characteristic is brought to the generation of 2022 (or the ‘iPhone 14’, if the names continue to evolve as before).
In his latest report for investors, Kuo comments that the range of iPhone 13s that we will see this September will be very similar to the one we have this year and will continue to include a ‘mini’ model for the last time. The 2022 iPhones will therefore be sold in only two screen sizes of 6.1 and 6.7 inches.
More affordable big screens and a new iPhone SE for 2023
Another novelty of 2022 is that there would be a 6.7-inch “not Pro” model, for those who do not want to have to spend the price of the ‘Pro Max’ model just to have a large screen (it would cost around 900 or 1,000 euros). There would therefore be four models, two for each screen size and with the ‘Pro’ sporting that Touch ID sensor under the screen that has been in the rumors for so long.
Kuo also has data from Next iPhone SE, to be released in spring 2022. It would retain the same design but would incorporate a 5G modem, with a very competitive price as the main asset. We would also see an evolution of the iPhone 11 that would become another SE model in 2023, expanding or at least modifying the range.
All in all, it seems that 2021 is going to be a year with very linear updates of the iPhone, and that next year will be the year in which we will begin to see some changes in the models. As long as Kuo is right, sure.
