A new report from J.P. Morgan predicts that Apple will begin releasing iPhones twice a year starting in 2021.

“Based on our supply chain checks, we are expecting a strategic change in the launch cadence with the release of two new iPhone models in 1H21 followed by another two in 2H21, which will serve to smooth seasonality around the launch,” J.P. Morgan analyst Samik Chatterjee writes.

The analysts also predict that Apple will launch four new iPhones in September 2020 that all feature OLED screens and 5G modems, though some will not support mmWave technology. Additionally, they corroborate reports that a new low cost iPhone will launch in spring.

“The 2H20 lineup will include all OLED phones, with screen sizes of 5.4″ (one model), 6.1″ (two), and 6.7″ (one), broadening the screen size range from 5.8″ to 6.5″ in 2019,” Chatterjee writes. “We expect the two higher end models (one 6.1″, one 6.7″) to include mmWave support, triple camera and World facing 3D sensing, while the lower-end models (one 6.1″, one 5.4″) will include support for only sub-6 GHz and dual camera (no World-facing 3D sensing).”

J.P. Morgan raised its twelve month AAPL price target to $296 from $290.

And then the iPhone upgrade program will abuse the living dead over memberships with lines and more frequent preparing towards letting customers in. In all seriousness, I see it as a good thing, but mostly mixed. I perceive them releasing cheaper models next to the 'all in' versions of iPhones, but also were a the point where we're not likely going to upgrade because of how near perfect everything is in an iPhone nowadays that the products would have to gravitate towards being obselete to easily convince users to upgrade even for iOS versions.
