Apple Plans to Release a Slimmer iPhone in 2025


Apple is working on a slimmer version of the iPhone, which is expected to be released by 2025, according to a report published on Friday.

The report said the yet-to-be-released slimmer version is likely to be priced higher than Apple’s iPhone Pro Max and is expected to be launched with the iPhone 17 in September 2025.

The company, headquartered in Cupertino, California, is currently in the process of testing various designs for the device, codenamed D23.

The report suggests that this device may incorporate Apple’s latest-generation processor, likely to be named A19.

This anticipated overhaul highlights Apple’s imperative to enhance the iPhone, its flagship product, amidst stiff competition from Honor and Huawei in China, as well as Samsung Electronics worldwide.

According to research firm International Data Corporation, Samsung had the largest share, of the smartphone market in the first three months of 2024 with 20.8%, followed by Apple’s 17.3% market share.

For the fiscal second quarter, Apple’s iPhone sales fell 10.5% to $45.96 billion.

Apple also disclosed plans to drop its less expensive model iPhone Plus and intends to launch a cheaper iPhone, a successor to its iPhone SE in the spring of 2025, the report said.

The news come days after Apple unveiled its latest iPad Pro with a new chip for artificial intelligence computing as it rushes to catch up with its Big Tech rivals in a race to dominate the emerging technology.
