Apple hasn’t had much to say about new products in 2020, but the sheer number of rumors that have popped up over the last few weeks makes it all but inevitable that a major spring media event is in the cards. We are still waiting for Apple to send out invites, but on Monday, German website iPhone-ticker.de announced that Apple is planning to hold an event late March, with Tuesday, March 31 a likely candidate for the event’s precise date.
Reportedly, the phone will go on sale soon after the event, on April 3 (a Friday, as is typical of Apple). Previous reports suggested the product would sell for $399, placing it squarely in the group of midrange rates. Apple analyst Ming Chi Kuo said earlier that he expects the smartphone to come with the same A13 CPU as the iPhone 11, 3 GB of RAM and 64 GB or 128 GB of storage. As at the time with the original SE, the system would basically suit output flagships of the company. Alternatively, Apple is aiming to cut costs with a cheaper monitor and recycle the casing for the iPhone 8.
The report also noted that Apple iPhone 9 might not be the only hardware to launch during the event in March. Along with AirTags, Apple may also announce an updated iPad Pro. AirTags are likely to be objects which track objects like tiles. Ming-Chi Kuo further added that Apple is planning to launch a new wireless charging pad. Certain products that may launch in the first half of 200 include “Bluetooth headphones with high-end over-ear,” and modified MacBooks with scissor switches. The company can launch all of these devices at the launch event in March.
