  • Here's why we might not see an iPhone SE 2 this year

While many expected the iPhone SE 2 to be launched in early-2017, Apple made a decision to skip the launch.

iPhone users have long complained that their devices seem to slow down when new models are released. There have been plenty of rumours about the upcoming iPhone SE 2 but, they all might in vain. However, in India, the selling price of the iPhone X is slated to be Rs 89,000 for the 64GB variant which translates to $1,388, nearly 39 percent more than the United States, while the 256GB variant is priced at Rs 1, 02,000 which translates to $1,521. As such it is unlikely that we will be seeing the launch of the iPhone SE 2 this year.

The troubles for Apple may be continuing over the company's performance throttling on older iPhones. Apple is expected to unveil the next version of iOS at its WWDC developer conference this summer, and then ship it to consumers when it releases the next iPhone in September.

Just like last year, Apple is set to deliver another set of three iPhones this year, including a second generation iPhone X, an even bigger iPhone X Plus, and a third, lower-priced iPhone.

Grammy Awards 2018: Hillary Clinton wows crowd with surprise cameo
After a list of celebrities - John Legend , Cher , Snoop Dogg , Cardi B and DJ Khaled - gave it their farcical bests, Mrs. Hillary Clinton may not have won the 2016 presidential election - but maybe she can win a Grammy in 2019.

But along with Apple's update about its holiday season sales, what will get nearly as much attention on Thursday will be what Apple says about its outlook for the first three months of this year.

Industry researchers say iPhone X is selling well, but they don't have access to Apple's actual sales numbers.

Much has been said about Apple's lineup of smartphones for 2018. In addition, a full-screen iPhone with LCD display has also been rumored to get announced during the Apple keynote, which will take place later in the year. As a result, Apple doesn't see the need to put 40 million iPhone X devices into the market. The OLED models, on the other hand, will feature a 6.0 to 6.1-inch screen and another with a 6.4 to 6.5-inch display. A likelier narrative points out the relative cost of production of iPhone X units.
