In fact, Apple is betting a lot in the iPhone 7 and 8, in order take advantage of Samsung´s situation and become the biggest smartphone maker in the world.
According to the International Business Times, Kuo noted that an upgrade might come later next year, since there´s not much hopes for a next-gen iPhone SE model to see a launch in the second fiscal quarter of 2017, ending in March. Apparently, it was also known that the company´s decision of not refreshing the iPhone SE is because the main goal is to margin guidance for the current fiscal quarter of 2017.
