Apple's new 'iPhone SE' may launch today, April 3

The intervention mentioned above is actually regarding a listing of a Belkin screen protector that is now live on the Apple Store.

Other reports toward the end of a year ago, however, suggested that iPhone 9 might be a more appropriate name, since it would obviously be a direct upgrade to the iPhone 8, and of course Apple never used the number 9, choosing to designate the more significantly redesigned 2017 iPhone as the iPhone X - the Roman numeral for 10 - and then continue the numbering from there into the typical "S" models and then the iPhone 11. The new coronavirus outbreak closed most of the world, since social distancing seems to be the only way to limit the spread of the pathogen. Some believe that Apple might delay the launch of the new handset, others say the company is ready to launch a low-priced iPhone SE on April 15 and will begin shipping it on April 22. The first iPhone SE was released in March of that year, with a larger-capacity re-release that followed a year later.

The technology powering biometric facial recognition in Apple devices could also help iPhone and iPads orient the display to the user's face, according to a new patent spotted by AppleInsider.

A launch event for the entry-level model is scheduled for April 15, adding to industry murmurs that the release is imminent.

Secondly, and more surprisingly, Apple itself appears to have leaked news of the launch on its own website.

The device is expected to run on the same chipset that powers the iPhone 11 series but packaged inside an iPhone 8 body. Expect the smartphone to feature a 4.7-inch screen and the A13 Bionic chipset inside.

But with more information trickling out, it seems like we're finally nearing the launch. Best Buy and other retailers received stocks of accessories for a 4.7-inch iPhone 2020, but were unable to list it online.

We were told that things were changing, so Apple might change its mind. After you purchase your new phone, you'll get a trade-in email that explains how to get your old device ready to ship.

9to5Mac's report didn't reveal pricing, but suggested storage options at 64GB/128GB/256GB, and three colours: white, black, and Apple's charitable red (PRODUCT (RED)). It can be reported to be joined by 5 distinct official instances in silicone and leather-based supplies, and can be provided in three storage choices - 64GB, 128GB, and 256GB.

The launch of the iPhone 9, therefore, is a big freaking deal... The article was written yesterday, but Apple hasn't announced anything yet this afternoon. Could we see $399 again?
