According to preliminary estimates by experts, due to lack of components, the retail debut of the new product will not take place on April 3, as previously assumed, but a month later.
Earlier, network sources reported that the announcement of the gadget will take place on March 31 – it is expected that the company will not change the date of the presentation, limiting itself only to postponing the start of sales of new items.
A respected industry analyst, Min-Chi Kuo, predicts that Apple will be able to release about 20 million iPhone 9s in 2020, and with the most optimistic forecasts, 30 million. He explains these figures not only by the brand’s popularity but also by the availability of the model, whose starting price is $ 399 for the version with a 64 GB drive.
According to previous leaks, the iPhone SE successor will receive an A13 Bionic processor, 3 GB of RAM and a single main camera. Apple has not yet officially confirmed information about the specifications and release date of the upcoming new product.
