The iPhone SE 3, the first model in this category to be compatible with 5G, could be presented in the coming weeks. According to a new leak, Apple intends to hold a keynote on March 8, 2022 to announce its new affordable smartphone.
According to information from Mark Gurman, eminent journalist at Bloomberg, the iPhone SE 3 should land in March 2022, despite shortage of computer chips and deficiencies in production lines. Citing “people with knowledge of the subject”, the specialist journalist claims that Apple “aim for a date” around March 8, 2022 to present its new iPhone. It would therefore be a Tuesday, which is consistent with Apple’s habits.
Bloomberg’s dispatch corroborates the latest leaks that have appeared on the web. According to our colleagues at 91mobiles, Apple seems to have started testing a new iPhone SE in India, which suggests that the arrival on the market is imminent.
What should we expect from the March 8, 2022 keynote devoted to the iPhone SE 3?
A keynote, the first of the current year, would be organized to lift the veil on the iPhone SE 3, whose the main novelty is 5G. Pandemic obliges, it would obviously be a presentation exclusively online, advance Mark Gurman. Given the complicated situation on the production line side, Apple’s schedule is subject to change. “Company plans may change due to production delays or other changes”, explains an anonymous source.
Moreover, Apple should recycle the design of the previous iPhone SE. We expect to find a TouchID fingerprint reader housed in the home button, wide borders and an LCD screen rather than OLED. The brand would however update the processor by integrating an A15 Bionic SoC, the powerful chip that powers the latest iPhone 13.
During the keynote, Apple should also lift the veil on a new iPad Air, which is also reportedly being tested in Indian territory. According to Bloomberg, this will be a tentative update focused on a “faster processor” and 5G. The company would again bet on the A15 chip. Finally, the media table on the arrival of a new Mac powered by an Apple Silicon chip. According to the latest leaks, it would be a line of Mac minis with the M1 Pro and M1 Max chips, already at work on the latest MacBook Pro.
