Apple’s successor to the iPhone SE could be coming very soon. This rumoured iPhone 9 (or iPhone SE 2) could be officially revealed on April 15th, after a new report came out regarding an internal meeting at Apple.
Back in February, we reported that they were set to reveal the device in mid-March, but as we all know now, that didn’t happen. No surprise considering other reports indicate that the iPhone 9 is delayed indefinitely because of the COVID-19 outbreak.
iPhone 9 update 👀
Per an internal meeting yesterday, Apple is now preparing for an April release.
– Announcement on April 15
– Shipments on April 22
Keep in mind: we’re in the middle of a pandemic, and things could change.

But now it seems that ain’t happening, and they’re proceeding with a new plan. This news come from Jon Prosser, founder of Front Page Tech who said that tentatively, the iPhone 9 will be officially announced on April 15th, and will be available starting April 22nd.
No word on whether they will reveal the device via some sort of online event, but thus far, no word on that yet.
As a recap, the iPhone 9 is rumoured to be priced at $349(~RM1500) or $399(~RM1650), making it quite affordable for an iPhone. Some other specs that’ve been rumoured to be on the iPhone 9 is a A13 Bionic chipset, 3GB of RAM, and 64/128GB storage variants with a single rear camera setup. It’ll reportedly keep the iPhone 8 body, as you can see from the picture above, which isn’t too bad actually.
But hey, considering we’re literally living in a pandemic right now, all this could change very quickly. Let’s see how things go.
