Apple has long been rumoured to be working on an iPhone SE 2, with rumours gathering pace about the much-talked-about device in 2018.
The iPhone SE was launched back in 2016, and Apple fans were left expecting a successor in 2017 due to the tech giant’s yearly update release pattern.
However, Apple opted against this – and instead of upgrading the iPhone SE the Cupertino-based firm released models with 32GB and 128GB of storage.
So a big refresh of the iPhone SE has been expected for awhile and, according to tech tipsters, the iPhone SE 2 will boast some radical changes.
It’s rumoured that the iPhone SE 2 will feature the same aluminium edges as the original SE.
However, some experts have claimed that the iPhone SE 2 will feature an iPhone X-like notched LED display.
It’s also rumoured to have glass backing to enable wireless charging.
And, according to the latest rumour, fans could get to see the iPhone SE 2 very soon.
A supply chain source has told Forbes that Apple will unveil the iPhone SE 2 at WWDC 2018 next Monday in California.
If that’s the case, then the iPhone SE 2 release date could be just a few weeks away.
Apple typically opens pre-orders for their new smartphones the Friday following the official reveal.
And then the Friday after that the iPhone in question is released and ready for customers to go in-store and pick up.
So, if the iPhone SE 2 is revealed at WWDC 2018 it means pre-orders could open on Friday June 8 with a full release potentially happening on Friday June 15.
However, as with all rumours, it’s best to take it with a pinch of salt until the official word from Apple.
Thankfully, fans don’t have too long to wait for certain.
WWDC 2018 is kicking off on Monday June 4 and Express.co.uk will be there bringing you all the big news from it.
At WWDC Apple will also unveil iOS 12, and earlier this week we reported on some exciting features that will allegedly come with the new software.
Apple are reportedly working on a new iOS 12 feature that will let iPhone users open their front door and their car door with their smartphone.
The new tech will take advantage of the near-field communication (NFC) chip in the iPhone to unlock doors.
NFC is central to the Apple Pay system and allows for contactless information exchanges.
The new iOS 12 feature is expected to be announced at WWDC next week, The Information reported.
They said: “The change to the near-field communication, or NFC, chip, which is expected to be announced next month, could pave the way for people to use iPhones for other security-sensitive interactions, from paying transit fares and opening car doors to verifying their identity in other ways.
“Already, employees at Apple’s new campus in Cupertino, Calif., are using their iPhones to gain access to buildings and offices, suggesting that the technology has been deployed there, people familiar with the matter said.”
