{UPDATE, April 6th 3:25AM PDT}- Shipments Dates

Apple Terminal has learned that in an earlier version of the webpage, it stated that after an order is placed the iPhone 9/SE will ship between May 1st and May 10th. The page that was taken down also noted it will use a A13 chip, be priced at $399 for GB, come in white, black, and red, and feature 64GB up to 256GB options.

9to5Mac reported this week the same information for color options and storage conflagrations but did not mention a price. Per JD.com it’ll be priced at $399, which would match the current iPhone SE, with boosted specs it’s a great deal.

iPhone 9 or iPhone SE rumors, leaks, and drama have filled the Apple news cycle, but, for further proof a launch is near today Chinese e-commerce website JD.com posted a brand new placeholder for the “iPhone 9” on its website.

The page includes an iPhone covered in a red cloth, with the text saying, per Google Translate “Apple iPhone 9 mobile phone comes standard with full Netcom.”

The page does not offer any new information, all of the specs for the device are unavailable saying “Refer to the official website” being Apple, we don’t know much more.

It does, however, confirm that the iPhone 9/SE will not support 5G dispelling any prior rumors of such, and will feature a lightning connector and no headphone jack. Additionally, on Sunday Jon Prosser reported that Verizon had a small slip and referenced the “iPhone 9” on its trade-in page.

All of this is rising further doubts over the name right after 9to5Mac exclusively “confirmed” the name will be the iPhone SE, additionally they reported a launch on Friday, which, well, didn’t happen.
