Thoughts on Apple simplifying the iPhone line-up?

With nearly all the models featuring OLED displays this year and the difference between the models becoming less and less noticeable and it being increasingly more varied and difficult to choose from what are your thoughts on Apple simplifying the line-up?

We currently have 5 iPhones for 2020:

  • iPhone SE

  • iPhone 12 mini

  • iPhone 12

  • iPhone 12 Pro

  • iPhone 12 Pro Max

I could imagine apple returning loosely to the old style of just one or two models released each year. Perhaps merging the SE and the mini to form a 5.4" LCD budget iPhone, keeping a 6.1" iPhone as the standard and a 6.7" as the pro with 3 cameras similar to the old plus models

With that in mind here's a potential new lineup:

  • iPhone SE (5.4" LCD, single camera)

  • iPhone (6.1" OLED, 2 cameras)

  • iPhone Pro (6.7" OLED, 3 cameras)

While I'm not sure about the only 3 camera model being the 6.7" that may be too big (maybe a standard 3 camera iPhone instead), this simplification seems to make sense. Do you agree, how would you simplify the line up?
