Apple may delay launch of iPhone SE Plus to 2nd half of 2021


Not long after Apple launched the new iPhone SE, rumours of a larger version called the iPhone SE Plus began to surface. Unfortunately, this new version probably won't be coming anytime soon. Although it was first expected to launch in the first half of 2021, the larger iPhone SE Plus could now launch much later.

According to MacRumours, well-known Apple analyst Kuo Ming-Chi has predicted that Apple may postpone the iPhone SE Plus to the second half of next year. For your information, this model will be a significantly larger variant of the newly launched iPhone SE 2020. It's expected to be either 5.5-inch or 6.1-inch in size (compared to 4.7-inch), which is the same size as the iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro.

In terms of specs, it should still come with the same A13 Bionic chip inside. Additionally, it will use Touch ID for secure identification. Besides that, it might also have a notch like the iPhone 11 series (due to size), but it's expected to be a smaller notch.

Moreover, the iPhone SE Plus isn't the only device that's going to be delayed. A new iPad Pro that's supposed to have 5G connectivity and a mini LED display will also be delayed to 2021, according to Economic Daily News (in Chinese). Originally slated for launch at the end of this year, the new model will launch in spring 2021 (around March to June 2021).

Kuo's analysis tends to be rather accurate, so it looks like we're going to have to wait patiently for these to come next year. With that said, is a larger iPhone SE something you'd want or do you like the smaller size? Let us know on our Facebook page and stay tuned to for more updates on this.
