Apple released three new iPhones in 2016 — the iPhone SE, iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus — but going into 2017 the Cupertino based company is only focusing on the iPhone 8.
Those waiting for a SE upgrade in 2017 are likely to be disappointed as Apple is set to largely promote its anniversary edition iPhone 8. With 10 years since the launch of first iPhone, the company is set to unveil the most radical smartphone yet. The next year?s iPhone is expected to bring a massive redesign to the flagship that hasn?t seen any significant change since iPhone 6 in 2014.
Evidence suggests that a cheaper model SE smartphone would not be available next year. Apple is instead offering cheaper deals on iPhone 6S and iPhone 6S Plus on its online refurbished store. Up until now, Apple has never sold refurbished iPhones on its online store.
This clearly means the brand is not developing any cheaper iPhone for now. Instead the brand is offering good deals on the older iPhone models. Customers who are waiting for a iPhone SE will be disappointed to learn the news.
Apple has been offering good deals on refurbished MacBooks, iPads, Apple TVs but now you can get iPhone 6S and 6S Plus directly from Apple.com. Customers can find the iPhone 6S in 16 GB storage varieties for $449.00. The larger iPhone 6S Plus is being offered in two storage varieties: 16Gb and 64GB for $529 and $589, respectively. All colors are seem available for refurbished devices, which includes Silver, Space Gray, Gold, and Rose Gold.
The refurbished iPhones purchased directly from Apple include a brand new outer shell and a new battery. Also, these iPhone 6s and 6s Plus models are unlocked and SIM-free.?They even include a 1-year warranty, so if something breaks, Apple will repair the device or provide assistance.?In the end, users can expect to save up to 15% ($110) by going the refurbished route, making it a great deal for budget conscious users.
iPhone 8 Features
Of course, people can instead wait for the iPhone 8. The iPhone 8 will supposedly feature a fresh new design with a glass front and back that are connected by metal around the edges.
In terms of display, the device will bring another radical change as it will be the first to sport OLED screen. Besides, the OLED screen will cover much of the front as the home button to is expected to be gone.
Instead next-generation Touch ID fingerprint scanner that will be embedded beneath the display, will serve as TouchID replacement. Apple?s 3D Touch gestures could take care of the rest of the home button?s functionality. Fast charging and wireless charging are the other options that can be expected. Also, as usual, enhancements in the processor, RAM and camera can be expected for iPhone 8.
