Apple is widely expected to release a new iPhone SE in 2022, with the most recent report indicating that it would happen in March or April. Expect the event to be streamed live online as well.
Writing with the help of his Might Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman writes in his weekly newsletter that the event would be virtual because the world is still dealing with the repercussions of the ongoing COVID-19 outbreak. It’s unclear whether any of Apple’s 2022 events will be held in person, including the annual WWDC conference, which is expected to take place in June.
In terms of the iPhone SE, Gurman stated that the handset will get 5G connectivity while maintaining the same familiar iPhone 8-like look.
In April 2020, at the start of the Covid-19 epidemic, Apple released the current iPhone SE. It’s due for an upgrade with 5G and new internals, as its network speeds are capped at 4G LTE and its CPU is running 2019’s A13 chip speeds. However, expect the design to be similar to the current model’s iPhone 8 era style.
We can expect to see a speedier A-series chip to be put into the new iPhone SE, while a camera upgrade also seems likely at this point.
The iPhone SE is likely the greatest iPhone for a number of categories, including children and teenagers, and the enhanced internals will undoubtedly help. The current iPhone SE is in desperate need of some TLC, but a major overhaul will have to wait. According to recent sources, the rumored revamp will not take place until 2024.
