Unlike companies like Samsung, which usually launch two smartphones a year, Apple usually only has one. Apple was the longest time ever to host its iPhone event this fall. According to a forecast by JP Morgan's Samik Chatterjee, the analyst now suggests that Apple could split its iPhone launch into two events a year.
The analyst claims that Apple may choose to launch iPhones twice a year, with the first launch in the summer and then the fall event. We're not sure how Apple plans to split product launches, but it's possible that one product launch will focus on one low-end iPhone while the other will focus on high-end flagship handsets.
In fact, this is not the case the first time we heard about it. Rumors are Apple next year to bring the iPhone SE 2 on the market. The launch is expected to occur earlier this year, meaning Apple will technically make two new iPhone releases next year, if the iPhone SE 2 rumor is true. So we'll just have to wait and see. It also makes sense that it could take place in the summer when WWDC takes place, so Apple could kill two birds with one stone, but until this is confirmed, first take it with a grain of salt.
