iPhone SE 2 release date might be delayed because of the new coronavirus. The company had in its plans to launch the device at the March event, but it has been canceled in the meantime.
This means that the iPhone SE 2, and other new Apple products, won’t hit the market soon. Here is all we know so far.
The March event has been canceled
This new event from Apple has been in works for four years now. There are many other reasons why the company has halted the production. It seems that there were already some delays in production since the factories across China were already shut down due to the coronavirus outbreak. Apple has tried to shift the production to countries like China and Taiwan, but it didn’t work because of the lack of machinery.
There are also some rumors that Apple has planned the release of the iPhone SE 2 device through an online event. However, the US has declared a national emergency, so the shipment and delivery process was not going to happen anytime soon. The launch was supposed to take place at Steve Jobs Theater in California, but it has been canceled because of the numerous numbers of COVID-19.
What about the release date?
The phone was supposed to be released at the end of March 2020, and it was supposed to have a price of $399. This means that the phone will be a budget one. Even so, the phone will be powered by the latest A13 Bionic chip. This means that the phone will easily support iOS 14 and that it will be ready for future software updates. It will come with Touch ID and a home button. There will also be a single rear camera.
