iPhone SE 3: Apple is said to be planning an event in March


In a few months, Apple will present the next iPhone, according to a media report. Its possible specialty: the price.

The season of Apple events will start again in spring this year, writes Mark Gurman from Bloomberg in his newsletter “Power On”.

Gurman is known for his often, but not always accurate, predictions for new Apple services and gadgets.

This Monday - exactly 15 years after the presentation of the first iPhone - he wrote: "Apple is preparing for its first product presentation in 2022."

And he also thinks he knows when and with what Apple wants to start its gadget year: with a new mid-range iPhone, the iPhone SE 3. The new smartphone should be shown to the public for the first time in either March or April, according to his sources stuck to him, says Gurman.

The presentation is therefore planned again as a virtual event, i.e. as a video stream on the network.

Apple last presented an iPhone SE in April 2020 (here is our test report).

The special thing about the SE models is that they are cheaper than other iPhones.

The current SE, for example, costs 479 euros, 100 euros cheaper than the next model in Apple's current range, the iPhone 12. However, Apple has been charging this price unchanged since its introduction almost two years ago.

Will the old look stay?

The technology of the current iPhone SE - Apple A13 chip, Touch ID, LTE - can therefore confidently be described as outdated.

The new model will therefore be equipped with 5G mobile communications - and certainly with at least the A14 chip.

One can expect that the cameras will also get an upgrade.

Gurman also believes that the new iPhone SE will retain the look of its predecessor, which was based on the iPhone 8.

That would also mean: continue to use Touch ID instead of Face ID.

Of course, this can be argued.

It would be more obvious to build the new mid-range iPhone on the technology of the iPhone 11.

Gurman does not write anything about further hardware innovations.

A change is conceivable: Apple would still have to convert the last Intel iMacs and MacBooks, and especially the Mac Pro, to its own chips in order to keep its promise to completely get rid of Intel processors within two years.

It is possible, however, that Apple will save this for the WWDC developer conference in June.

It wouldn't be the first time Apple has introduced new professional Macs at this event.

Because their introduction usually goes hand in hand with new operating system versions.

And one can safely assume that iOS 16 and PadOS 16, macOS 13 and watchOS 9 will be presented at WWDC and announced for publication in the fall.
