Based on the latest news it looks like coronavirus spread may impact production on the 9/SE2.....



Anyone here in the know about the possible release date in SA?

I’m multi-threading here but desperate to know if any “insiders” know anything about possible release date for iPhone 9/SE2?
And yes, I do realise that if Ming-Chi Kuo doesn’t know the release date then how likely would it be public knowledge, but a girls gotta ask!

Apple generally release new products in September, and the release date in SA is around 2 weeks later.
So normally their flagship phones (this year leaks say it’s 3 different iPhone 12’s) are released after their big yearly announcement at the end of Q3 but rumour has it, and it appears this is very possible, that the iPhone 9/SE2 is already in production with a possible release date in the US of mid-March, I was just hoping someone could verify if they had heard anything.

Should be early March. Hit SA very soon afterwards so I would say late March in Mzanzi.

The original SE launched on the 31st of March, if there's a Corona delay it'll push the date into April or May (If Apple are actually intending on launching a SE2).

Every phone manufacturer is feeling the heat of Coronavirus. Xiaomi is increasing prices of their smartphones in Asian markets, and saying their supply chain has been affected due to the Coronavirus epidemic in China.

I love the fact that it’s going to come with an A13, all that power in a small chassis for those who don’t like Phablets.

Will be great to see the (PRODUCT)RED version given the current situation in the world.

Apple officially unveils rumored ‘iPhone 9’ with iPhone SE name from $399, three colors, up to 256GB

The wait is finally over for Apple’s new state-of-the-art, entry level iPhone. The long rumored model often referred to as the iPhone 9 or iPhone SE 2 is officially called iPhone SE as 9to5Mac previously reported. The new model retails from $399 and comes in three color and storage options.

Here’s what you need to know about the new iPhone SE:

- Pre-orders start Friday, April 17, at 5 a.m. PDT/8 a.m. EDT
- Priced from $399
- Available in black, white, or red with black front glass

Apple’s new model joins the iPhone XR, iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, and iPhone 11 Pro Max which range from from $599 to $1449, bringing similar technology at a lower price. Notably, the new model also retains the physical Home button, not the gesture-based, on-screen Home indicator used on iPhone X and later.
