Apple is reportedly working on its first foldable iPhone and after the launch of the new foldable iPhone, the Cupertino-based tech giant may discontinue the production of the iPad mini.

Meanwhile, rumors around the iPhone SE are taking over. In a new report, as suggested by Ming-Chi Kuo, iPhone SE 2021 might get delayed to later next year. In his latest statement shared by a report from MyFixGuide, Kuo says that Apple might delay the 2021 iPhone SE launch. It won’t be happening in the first half at least, says Kuo.
The reason behind the delay is related to the next-generation iPhone 13. Rumors have already hinted at Apple upgrading the ultra-wide camera system on all the iPhone 13 models next year. Kuo says there’s stiff competition between suppliers of the iPhone 13’s camera, which will eventually hinder the production of the new iPhone SE.
