According to a report, Apple will delay the release of its new iPhone SE in 2024, as previously planned. According to Barclays analysts Blaine Curtis and Tom O’Malley in a research note, the device was expected to include an Apple-designed 5G modem, but plans have been shelved, according to MacRumors.
According to reports, Apple started working on its modem at least in 2018. To aid these efforts, Apple purchased Intel’s entire smartphone modem division in 2019. Although Apple’s modem doesn’t appear to be ready yet, analysts predict that Qualcomm will continue to be Apple’s modem supplier for the iPhone 16 SE and iPhone series next year.

Why is the iPhone SE delayed?
Apple’s plans for the smartphone may change in the future, as the new iPhone SE seems to have been postponed. The current model looks like a safe buy for now, and the new iPhone SE won’t be introduced until at least 2025, according to Kuo and multiple other sources.
Meanwhile, a California-based tech giant has filed a patent that hints at introducing a new rollable or scrollable device. According to a patent, there could be iPhones, iPads, TVs or iMacs with rollable or scrollable screens, according to a report by Gizmochina.
The US Patent & Trademark Office recently released a patent application that builds on Apple’s previous exploration from 2014 related to developing displays. The patent application describes a device featuring a display that can seamlessly switch between a rolled-up state for easy storage and an unrolled state for viewing purposes. The invention focuses on increasing the versatility and convenience of the display function of the device.
