Apple Said to Be Eyeing March Launch for low-priced iPhone

While most rumours have already suggested an early 2020 release, a new report from Bloomberg yesterday added even more weight indicating that Apple's suppliers are set to begin assembling "a new low-priced iPhone" in February, with Apple expected to officially unveil the new iPhone as soon as March. Design-wise, the phone should look nearly identical to the iPhone 8, with a 4.7-inch IPS LCD display and a home button with Touch ID. If you've somehow missed the constant bombardment of iPhone 9 leaks, here's a quick rundown of what we're expecting right now. The rumours so far had been that the new device which was earlier referred to as the iPhone SE2 will have the form factor and external design of the iPhone 8. The report claims that for yet another year, Apple will retain the same design language which is in stark contrast to the previous analysis coming from Ming-Chi Kuo.

Beta versions of iOS 13.3.1 include a new setting that lets users disable the "Ultra Wideband" feature, a short-range technology that lets iPhone 11 users share files locally with other nearby phones that support this feature.

With Apple rumored to have an iPhone 9 announcement weeks away, it's possible that too could see production in the country although that's nothing beyond speculation.

While Bloomberg had no comment on the expected price of the new iPhone, most reports have pegged it as starting at $399.

As per the recent development, Facebook has said in a statement that as many as one thousand professionals are likely to be hired in London in 2020.


The new model might be expected to launch at a similar price to the company's discontinued iPhone SE, which cost closer to €400. That's remarkably cheap compared to the iPhone 11 - which starts at $ 699 - and even the old iPhone 8 that you still have can buy for $ 449 through the Apple website.

Apple is hoping its handset shipments will return to growth this year, having set itself the goal of shipping more than 200 million units in 2020.

Apple iPhone 9 will be powered by the A13 processor which is the latest one introduced by Apple and is also used in the iPhone 11.
