Rumors and leaks about the iPhone 9 or the iPhone SE 2 have been circulating for months, and in the past few weeks, we’ve seen even more. Now, 9to5mac is reporting the starkest information yet.
In an exclusive report, 9to5Mac says that the iPhone 9, more or less the follow up to the 4-inch original iPhone SE will just be called “iPhone SE.” The report says that Apple plans to reference the updated hardware as the marketing difference between the 2020 and the 2016 version.
Additionally and perhaps most revealing of all the report says that Apple could be planning to launch the iPhone SE as soon as tomorrow. It is reported to come in White, Black, and PRODUCT (Red) and according to Ming-Chi-Kuo will start at $399.
9to5mac also says they can confirm the three storage options will be 64GB, 128GB, and 256GB. However, Jon Prosser who has risen to the top ranks of Apple leakers with a proven track record reported earlier this week that the new iPhone will be released on April 15th, and go on sale on April 22nd. He further backed his claim saying Apple internally are trying to shadow over the OnePlus event which is set for the 14th.
Following the 9to5mac report, Jon now states that he has not heard anything about a launch tomorrow and that his sources still point to the 15th of April.
Apple Terminal can corroborate the 15th and 22nd dates. We learned earlier this week from a source at a European based carrier that they were told to prepare for a launch on April 15th, and for sales to start on the 22nd.
