New Apple iPhone SE release date speculation

Speculation Abounds As To The New Apple iPhone SE Release Date

The new iPhone SE will likely be the first product release by Apple in 2022.

According to Taiwanese research firm TrendForce, the next-gen Apple iPhone SE will be released by the end of the first quarter of 2022. This will be the third-generation SE, a phone that has become a staple for Apple in the mid-range smartphone space. The new SE 3, traditionally Apple’s least expensive iPhone, is reported to feature 5G and a faster processor — reportedly the A15 chip, also found in the iPhone 13.

It is rumored that the new SE 3 will feature a similar design as the current model, which is based on the iPhone 8. The SE 3 is expected to again have a 4.7-inch display, Touch ID home button, and thicker bezels. Thus far, Apple has been quite vigilant about keeping the details about the iPhone SE 3 hush-hush, so there is no information (yet) about the camera or any upgrades; we may therefore be surprised when it is finally unveiled. According to TrendForce, “The third-generation iPhone SE is expected to be a major instrument in helping Apple establish a presence in the market segment for mid-range 5G smartphones.” It goes on to state, “Its production volume for 2022 is forecasted to reach 25-30 million units.”
