- A German source suggests that Apple will host a media event on the 31st of March and will launch the much-awaited successor to the iPhone SE on the 3rd of April.
- This rumored event may also see the launch of other products like the rumored AirTags item trackers.
- The iPhone SE 2 is also rumored to be known as the iPhone 9 when it is unveiled, although there’s no concrete information on this front.
We’ve heard quite a bit about Apple’s intentions to launch a successor to the popular iPhone SE handset which was unveiled four years ago. While there’s still some confusion as to what this handset will be called, reports have so far suggested names like the iPhone SE 2 as well as the iPhone 9.
A report from a German source iPhone-ticker mentions that Apple could be hosting an event on the 31st of March, with the iPhone SE 2 launching subsequently on April 3. This is pretty much all we know about the event, so we’re going to take this with a grain of salt for now.
Apple has hosted events in March before, like the aforementioned iPhone SE launch back in 2016. So there may be some truth to this report. Given how much we’ve heard about the iPhone SE 2, it’s likely that all of it is to materialize soon.
There are also rumors about Apple looking to upgrade the iPad Pro models, although the most recent rumor suggested that a 5G iPad Pro upgrade is on its way, but only by fall 2020.
It’s worth mentioning that this rumored event is separate from WWDC which is Apple’s annual developer conference usually held in June every year. This mid-year event also offers a glimpse of what’s to come with the next iteration of iOS.
