As per the latest information, Apple’s long-rumored entry-level iPhone is expected to be launched very soon. It is also possible that apple could start taking orders for the new iPhone 9 or the 2020 iPhone SE as soon as tomorrow. There is also a lot of information on the product colors and the storage variants.
2020 iPhone SE or iPhone 9
The most secretive component of new iPhones is Apple’s marketing names for them. Since there is no surety on what name Apple would come with for the iPhone 8 replacement, we will use two names for reference- 2020 iPhone SE and iPhone 9.
Apple first came out with the iPhone SE naming when it used the iPhone 5s body and the iPhone 6s processor. So it won’t be any surprise if Apple does it again by probably using the processor chip as that of the iPhone 11, 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max- Apple A13 Bionic.
The 2020 iPhone SE will likely be a hit for the iPhone 6 consumers who don’t even receive any software updates at this point. The powerful Apple A13 chip allows the augmented reality features along with Apple Arcade, the features which are not supported on the software running on iPhone 6 and 6 Plus.
Apple leaker Jon Prosser shared a Verizon document on Twitter which includes iPhone 9 in their trade-in program. Here’s the tweet:

Price and Availability

Earlier reports suggested that the new 2020 iPhone SE or iPhone 9 could be launched on April 15 with pre-orders starting from April 22. However, it is now possible that Apple could reveal and start taking orders for the new orders as soon as tomorrow.
