The planned release date of the iPhone SE2 could have been delayed because of the risk of Coronavirus infection. Apple was supposed to launch the new budget iPhone at the March event, but it has unfortunately been canceled due to the Coronavirus outbreak.
However, some additional issues delayed the production and assembly of the iPhone SE2, including the fact that most major Chinese factories have been shut down to prevent the spread of Covid-19.
Apple has reportedly tried moving their production plants to Taiwan, but that plan failed because they didn’t manage to find appropriately skilled laborers and machinery fast enough.
Sadly, that is terrible news for all Apple fans because no new Apple product will be released anytime soon.
The iPhone SE2 (or iPhone 9) will be a direct successor to the original iPhone SE that was launched four years ago.
Possible Online Release
Some rumors say that Apple intended to launch the iPhone SE2 online, with a video event.
However, no such event was announced, and many people believed that the phone will be added on Apple’s website one day, where it will be available to order.
Even if that was the case, the USA has declared a national emergency, which automatically means that no iPhone will be shipped soon.
The Apple iPhone SE2 was initially set to be released at the end of March 2020 with a price tag of $399. That price tag was supposed to make it a “budget iPhone.”
However, it will be powered by Apple’s A13 Bionic chip, which will make it run iOS 14 like a dream and be capable of supporting many upcoming software updates.
The SE2 will bring back features like the touch ID and single rear camera. Such features aren’t seen that often on new iPhones.
At the moment, check the previous version, they got huge offers.
