News has it that Apple is planning to releasing its biggest iPhone yet this year. It’s speculated that the Cupertino-based company will unveil the iPhone SE 2 in the second half of this year.
It was rumored that the iPhone SE 2 would make its debut at Apple’s recent March event but the handset was nowhere to be found. Instead, Apple unveiled new devices such as the 9.7-inch iPad, and accessories for the iPad.
Now, a new leak has popped up from the Eurasian Economic Commission which details a list of new products from Apple. Tim Hardwick notes that models listed with the EEC usually show up a few months later.
“The EEC filing, published on Tuesday, satisfies Russia’s requirement for companies to register all products containing encryption and/or cryptographic tools. On February 19, the EEC revealed the existence of two new models of iPad, which proved to be the Wi-Fi and cellular versions of Apple’s 9.7-inch iPad unveiled on March 27, so there’s a decent chance the new model numbers identify iPhones tipped for a May or June launch. Several new models of MacBook were also registered with the EEC in May of last year, and those laptops were announced at WWDC 2017.”
Although the leak didn’t say the name of the iPhone that would make its debut this year, Apple is expected to release a more affordable iPhone in 2018 which is speculated to be the iPhone SE 2. In addition to the iPhone SE 2, Apple will release an updated iPhone X and an iPhone X Plus.
