APPLE is keen to launch a NEW iPhone in a few days.
Better still, it will reportedly be a “cheap” model that will be very affordable.
What is the iPhone SE 3?
The iPhone SE is Apple’s cheapest smartphone.
A first generation model was launched back in 2016, followed by a second generation variant in 2020.
Now Apple is expected to release the iPhone SE 3 in a few days.
When is the iPhone SE 3 coming out? New iPhone SE release date 2022
Apple has not yet publicly confirmed the existence of the iPhone SE 3.
But the company has announced a “special event” for March 8th.
this Apple spring event is a somewhat regular feature for Apple and was used for the previous iPhone SE announcement in 2020.
The event is scheduled to take place at 10 a.m. California time – 1 p.m. in New York and 6 p.m. in London.
Apple dubbed the event “Peek Performance,” which is quite mysterious.
If Apple announces the iPhone SE 3 on March 8th, we expect the phone to be available for pre-order that same Friday, March 11th.
Then Apple would likely start selling the phone in stores on the Friday after – March 18.
What to expect from the iPhone SE 3 – news and rumours
We spoke to Ben Wood, analyst at CCS Insight, about the new phone.
“iPhone SE is an important franchise for Apple and provides the most affordable starting point for people who often buy iPhones for the first time,” Ben told The Sun.
“It’s also perfect for people who need a phone but don’t want all the bells and whistles.
“Apple will likely continue its usual approach of making incremental improvements in all areas like processor performance, battery life, and display.
“The other big story will be the addition of 5G.
“All operators in the UK are keen to get as many people on 5G as possible and it’s crucial that the entry-level iPhone supports this technology.”
A leak earlier this year suggested that the new iPhone would go into production in January.
That’s what industry insiders and Apple analysts say Ross Young.
Apple usually announces new iPhone models in September.
But the company has unveiled a handful of iPhones at events this spring.
It would be part of the cheaper iPhone SE range – which doesn’t currently have a 5G option.
Apple only started offering 5G phones in 2020 with the iPhone 12.
Since then, the iPhone 13 range has also been launched with 5G on board.
Bloomberg journalist and longtime Apple leaker Mark Gurman also says an iPhone SE 3 is on the way.
This handset is expected to launch in March or April, the Apple insider said in a newsletter.
According to Gurman, his sources did not specifically confirm that the device would be called the iPhone SE 3.
But given Apple’s history, it seems likely.
The iPhone SE stands for Special Edition and was launched in 2016.
It was designed as a cheaper option that ran alongside the iPhone 6S and 6S Plus.
This proved popular, so Apple repeated it in 2020 with the iPhone SE 2.
The device was launched with the iPhone 11 but inherited most of its design from the iPhone 8.
However, it came with more powerful components than the iPhone 8 – and was significantly cheaper than the iPhone 11.
This event will be entirely virtual.
That’s in contrast to Apple’s pre-pandemic storefronts, which were glitzy live affairs packed with media and gadget influencers.
Apple is reportedly planning an iPhone 8-style device with a 4.7-inch display — and a Touch ID button on the front.
But the phone is likely to feature updated hardware, including a faster processor and a more powerful camera.
Rumors suggest so it only costs $299 — and the old iPhone SE will drop to an even lower $199.
The big news would be the arrival of 5G, which is now more widely supported in the US and UK.
We’re also expecting a more powerful iPad Air with a newer custom A-series chip.
And a newer Mac is also planned.
