If you’re interested in the rumored iPhone SE 2 there are some things you should before a release date arrives.
The iPhone SE 2 is a rumored successor for the popular 4-inch iPhone SE Apple launched in March of 2016. iPhone SE 2 rumors have picked up steam in 2018, but it’s still unclear if Apple will release a new iPhone SE to go along with its rumored iPhone X successors.
iPhone SE 2 rumors have outlined potential features including a design that’s based on the iPhone X and iPhone 8, a new processor which would mean improved battery life and speeds, and a cheap price point. It’s music to the ears of those who’ve been hoping for a new iPhone SE, but these rumors are far from confirmed.
Multiple sources claim Apple’s working on an iPhone SE 2 for 2018, but they don’t agree on when the launch will take place. Some claim it’ll happen in a few weeks while other, more credible sources, claim the iPhone SE 2 release date will land much later in the year, if it lands at all.
There’s no guarantee Apple launches a brand new iPhone SE 2 in 2018. Ming-Chi Kuo, a respected analyst that’s accurately predicted Apple products in the past, says “Apple is unlikely to have enough spare resources to develop a new iPhone model for launch in 2Q18.”
While many of you are better off buying or waiting for another device, some of you might want to wait for the iPhone SE 2. If you’re thinking about waiting, you’ll want to use the time between now and rumored release date to prepare.
Preparing for a release date isn’t easy, particularly if said release date is rumored. That said, there are some things you should think about as we approach Apple’s first hardware release window in March.
This guide will take you through some steps we think prospective iPhone SE 2 buyers should take right now and in the weeks ahead.
