The rumor: Apple’s next budget iPhone won’t charge like the iPhone 13, according to Macotakara (55.9% accurate).
- “According to reliable sources in China, the iPhone SE (3rd generation), which is supposed to be the successor to the iPhone SE (2nd generation) released in April 2020, will retain the iPhone SE (2nd generation) chassis design and will continue to support Qi wireless charging, but will not support MagSafe” Macotakara reports
- Apple’s next iPhone SE is also said to feature a faster processor, but there won’t be much else new
Our take: As much and I thought MagSafe would happen on the new SE, we are talking about Apple’s cheapest iPhone here: implementing MagSafe into a design this old really wouldn’t be worth it for them. Again, this is going to be the smallest SE update yet.
