- A new report says the next iPhone SE 2022 will not feature MagSafe.
- Mac Otakara says production has begun on the new model.
- The report also claims the next iPad Air has also entered production.
A new report claims the new iPhone SE expected in the Spring of 2022 has entered production, alongside the iPad Air.
From Mac Otakara:
The new report states that the next iPhone SE, which will replace the current one as Apple's best iPhone for those on a budget, is expected to retain the same design as the previous model, and will still feature wireless Qi charging but not MagSafe from the iPhone 12 and iPhone 13.
The report echoes an earlier report from January, in which DSCC's Ross Young said the iPhone SE would enter panel production in January and phone production in March, tipping the launch for late April or early May.
From previous reports:
Low Price/High Value
Apple's lowest-price iPhone stocked with the latest internals.
Bottom line: If you've been waiting three years for Apple to update the Home button iPhone, your wait is over.

Looks like the new SE won’t be my new work phone. I want MagSafe and no home button. I use an 1Phone 12 Pro for my personal use but my work phone is an older iPhone 7 (Yes BYOD and I don’t want the MDM on my personal phone). Looks like I will just wait for the iPhone 14 to come out and upgrade my person personal phone to that and use the 12 pro for work. A modern update to the SE would have seen me buying 2 new phones this year but not now.
