The iPhone SE 2022 will reportedly launch as early as March 8 at the California tech titan first product event of the year.

Whisper suggests the budget phone will be a minor upgrade over its predecessor, the iPhone SE 2020, costing around $399/£389).

And according to experts, its release could cause the price of the SE 2020 to drop – almost certainly making it the cheapest iPhone ever.

Consumers are currently paying $399/£389 for the model, but this could be discounted by as much as $50/£50.

According to Paolo Pescatore, an analyst at PP Foresight, the release of a new version of the SE is an absolute certainty at some point.

He told The Sun: “A new iPhone SE is inevitable; it’s not if, but when Apple will release the new device.

“Significantly, this version may support 5G and will most likely support better features, including an updated processor.”

He added that instead of discontinuing the 2020 iPhone SE, Apple might choose to stock it and price it even lower.

“Apple will have some options and may want to keep the current SE model at a lower price point,” Paolo said.

“This will help the market continue to grow by making the iPhone more affordable.”

His comments were echoed by Dan Ives, an analyst at Wedbush Securities, who told The Sun: “We believe a price drop is on the horizon for this next SE.

“Cupertino follows all areas of the smartphone market and the SE is focused on international growth at the lower end of the market.”

Waiting a few weeks can benefit consumers by saving some extra cash.

Additionally, Apple fans may want to delay their purchase until they get a good look at the new version of the SE.

It may include features you just can’t resist – like a 5G connection and a better camera.

Therefore, those who buy now risk ending up with buyer regrets if and when the new model is unveiled in the coming days or weeks.

“Ultimately it comes down to whether users want a better device with more features or don’t need 5G,” Paolo said.

“It feels like Apple has a broad portfolio of devices to meet users’ unique needs; that is an enviable position in the eyes of the competition.”

Apple is hosting a special event on March 8th that will be streamed to fans around the world.

According to several rumors, the company is set to launch an iPhone 8-style device with a 4.7-inch display and a Touch ID button on the front.

The phone is likely to feature updated hardware, including a faster processor and more powerful camera, and cost under $400.

The big news would be the arrival of 5G, which is now more widely supported in the US and UK.

Ben Wood, an analyst at CCS Insight, told The Sun: “Apple will likely follow its usual approach and make incremental improvements in every area like processor performance, battery life and screen.

“The other big story will be the addition of 5G. All operators in the UK are keen to get as many people as possible into 5G and having an entry-level iPhone that supports this technology is key.”

Apple could also use the spring event to unveil other gadgets, including a new iPad.
