This should probably be one of the highlights of this year for Apple. The Cupertino company is preparing to launch a third version of its iPhone SE, its smartphone at the most affordable price.
As we are used to, the Cupertino company is not very talkative on the subject, but some experts in the company’s supply chain nevertheless manage to glean information.
Forecasts that join those of other Apple experts
This is precisely the case of Ross Young, a well-known analyst of the Apple brand, who has just spoken on Twitter. He explains that the production of the new smartphone must start during this month of January in terms of screens, and in March for all devices.
Apple 5G SE model starting panel production this month. Phone production likely from March. This means a launch is likely for 2H April/early May with shipments from late April or early May.

According to him, the launch could therefore take place over a period from April to early May, with delivery of the devices a few weeks later. Finally, his predictions confirm those of other Apple specialists. Thus, Ming-Chi Kuo is also counting on an exit during the first half.
As a reminder, the iPhone SE would be equipped with 5G connectivity, which should convince part of the public to make the transition. It is also expected to take over the design of the iPhone XR, but other experts are counting on a model close to the iPhone 11.
Anyway, many agree that it will include quite a few changes compared to its predecessor. Deeper modifications will occur on a later version which should be released within one to two years.
