Rumour has it there could be an updated version of the iPhone SE on the cards for 2018.

The rumour comes as one of Apples Suppliers (Wistron Corp), is preparing to expand its India based iPhone manufacturing plant which is based in Bangalore. The company currently manufacture the existing iPhone SE.

Apple is hoping to build its share of the Indian smartphone market by giving Wistron the majority of the orders for the new iPhone SE, which is said to ship in the first quarter of 2018.

Taiwan-based contract electronics maker Wistron Corp. is preparing for expansion of its production base in India to produce the next-generation smaller iPhone — the iPhone SE — according to sources in the South Asian country. According to the sources, Wistron is expected to start to ship the new iPhone SE — which is expected to be more affordable than larger iPhones for many Indian consumers — in the first quarter of next year.

They said that Wistron is in talks with the Karnataka government for an extra piece of land for its production expansion, hoping it will double or even triple its production capacity over the next five years.

Earlier rumours had suggested an updated iPhone SE may launch along side the iPhone 8 around August time however that now seems unlikely.
