All three iPhone 11 models will come out in September, analyst predicts

All three iPhone 11 models will come out in September, analyst predicts Wedbush's Dan Ives thinks the iPhone 11 options will hit in the second week of the month.

Apple ’ s rumored iPhone SE 2 is back in the news after Ming-Chi Kuo, a reliable analyst on the Apple beat, put forward several details about the next iteration. Last month, Bloomberg reported that Apple ’ s next low-cost iPhone would resemble the iPhone 8 and feature Touch ID. On the topic of

In early 2020, Apple is expected to launch a new version of its least expensive iPhone ever: The iPhone SE . The original iPhone SE , which launched Moreover, Kuo, who has a good track record for reporting about upcoming Apple products, says the new iPhone SE will resemble an iPhone 8 but

Ming-Chi Kuo predicts that Apple's second-generation iPhone SE -- donning the same 4.7-inch screen as the iPhone 8 -- will launch during the first quarter of 2020.

In a note viewed by CNBC on Thursday, the notable and highly reliable Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo reportedly predicted that the iPhone SE2 will launch in early 2020 with an iPhone 8-like form and the same processor found in the iPhone 11 series.

Despite retaining the design -- and 4.7-inch screen -- of a model released in 2017, Ming states that the upcoming SE "will be the best upgrade choice" for iPhone 6 users.

Apple could add in-screen fingerprint reader to 2020 iPhone

Apple could add in-screen fingerprint reader to 2020 iPhone According to a new report from Bloomberg, Apple has been working on in-screen fingerprint readers. But that feature won’t be ready for the new iPhone that will be announced next week. It could be released in 2020, or maybe 2021 if Apple’s suppliers can’t meet deadlines. If you’ve played with the most recent smartphones from Samsung, Huawei and other Android manufacturers, you know that in-screen fingerprint readers already work quite well. When you unlock your phone, you can see a fingerprint icon on the screen. It then works just like any fingerprint reader — you put your finger on the icon and it unlocks your phone.

Currently, Apple ’ s cheapest device is the iPhone 8 , which starts at 9. Perhaps replacing the iPhone 8 with an iPhone SE successor could drive more sales to customers that are still holding onto an iPhone 6, which will not be updated to iOS 13.

Whether you buy an iPhone on apple .com or at an Apple Store, you can activate it later. Nearly all iPhone models sold on apple .com are “unlocked” — which means your iPhone isn’t tied to a single carrier. If you choose carrier financing from AT&T or Verizon, your iPhone will be tied to your carrier.

Compared to the original SE which had a 4-inch screen and was powered by an A11 processor, the SE2 will use the A13 Bionic Chip, Apple's most recent and most advanced processor, which is currently powering the entire flagship lineup.

As the company's budget option, users will have to accept some hardware compromises considering that it will feature top-of-the-line software; the cameras are expected to be less powerful, and a home button will be present in place of an in-screen fingerprint sensor.

Thanks to its flagship computing power, Ming predicts that the SE2 will be "a key growth driver for Apple in 2020."

The first-gen SE cost owners $399 while the iPhone 8 was priced at $449; therefore, the iPhone SE2 will likely fall similarly between $400 and $450.

According to the analyst, the iPhone SE2 will launch during the first quarter of next year.

Apple may sell iPhone 11 and 11 Pro Smart Battery Cases .
If you recently purchased an iPhone 11 or iPhone 11 Pro, you may want to hold off buying a case for your new smartphone. Apple may have a Smart Battery Case for its iPhone 11 lineup in the works. 9to5Mac found a photo of the unannounced accessory (seen above) by looking through the code of iOS 13.2, which Apple launched yesterday. In past years, a battery case was almost a necessity if you owned an iPhone. This year, however, Apple went out of its way to make the iPhone 11 lineup thicker so that it could add higher capacity batteries to each of the devices. In fact, battery life is so good on the newiPhones, you may not need or want to buy a battery case.
