There could be a new iPhone coming this month
Could we finally be getting Apple's long-awaited low-cost phone?
There are constant rumours about when a new iPhone will be released, and it seems even a pandemic won’t stop them.
But, if you are an Apple loyalist, you’ll be pleased to hear that the long-anticipated iPhone 9 - which has also been called the iPhone SE 2 - could be launched later this month.
There are suggestions the iPhone 9 could be announced as early as 15 April.
Designed to be a lower cost handset, the iPhone 9 will likely be a replacement for the iPhone 8 and will have a similar 4.7-inch display.
All of this comes thanks to creator of Front Page Tech, Jon Prosser, who says he believes the handsets will then be shipped out on 22 April.
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.

The image he shared also suggests that the new ‘budget’ phone will only have a single camera on the back.
Of course, none of this is for certain at the moment - not only because we’re in the middle of a pandemic - but because none of this has yet been confirmed by Apple.
As always, we will be sure to keep you updated as and when new information is released.
