Apple iPhone SE 2 releasing in July, report claims

Three weeks later, the company is continuing to improve its shipping times for the iPhone X, as Apple Canada's website now shows 1-2 weeks for all models.

A portion of Apple fans still believe in the companys original stance – a 4” screen is as big as youll ever need. The demand for any new iPhone - but especially one more affordable and accessible to a large amount of people - will no doubt be high, which necessitates this expansion.

A new report published by a Chinese daily on Wednesday stated that Apple is likely to launch a new lower-priced iPhone during the first half of the upcoming year.

The iPhone SE is meant to cater to the needs of the budget smartphone hunters who want to use an iPhone. According to 9to5Mac, it is likely that the SE 2 will receive the A10 chip now used by iPhone 7 units. India is a huge market for smartphones, but consumers lack the purchasing power to continually upgrade to high-end flagships. Notably, the iPhone SE was launched in March 2016.

Apple has been adamant about keeping the smaller handset alive over the past few years, and it's nice to see the company is keeping its word by making some modern changes to the device so it can still compete in the market. It will retain the same four inch display, say sources. Moreover, the SE also supports 4K video playback, which was not available on the iPhone 5S.

If a second-generation model were to be launched in 2018, we'd expect it to take the best of the iPhone 7 and iPhone 8, meaning at least an A10 processor.
