Apple's cheap iPhone maybe called the iPhone 9.
I have leaks and rumours to share with you that cover everything we know so far about the new phone.
Lots of people absolutely love the iPhone SE for its small size and low price.
And by low I mean, low in relation to other iPhones.
Apple's gearing up to release a spiritual successor to this phone, but it probably won't be called the iPhone SE 2. Instead, reports point toward iPhone 9, filling a gap in the naming lineup we've had ever since 2017, when the company skipped straight from iPhone 8 to iPhone X.
Check out the previous Apple Core video in the description if you want find out why Apple needs a cheaper phone.
Okay, so let's get to the good stuff.
The headline rumors are that the iPhone 9 will look pretty much the same as the iPhone 8. So, a home button that also powers Touch ID.
A 4.7 inch LCD screen and, inside, it'll get an updated A13 bionic chip.
That's the same one that's on the iPhone 11 and 11 Pro.
This video from OnLeaks shows a frosted glass back and a centered Apple logo to bring it in line with design cues from 2019 iPhones, but here's a curveball.
This week nine to five Mac cited a report from Japanese site Mecca Takara.
That seems to say that Apple might also be developing a refresh iPhone eight size model with a 5.4 inch size screen and face ID.
Now this would likely exist alongside the iPhone nine that I just mentioned.
This all came from Apple suppliers who were at CES 2020 who supposedly spilled the beans.
So why should we believe this particular rumour last year they correctly predicted that Apple was working on an updated seventh generation iPod Touch?
Thanks to Apple suppliers at CES.
What's likely is that this mystery 5.4 inch model is actually one of the four iPhones we're expecting to see in the fall of 2020.
When Apple refreshes its flagship line room is pointing to a 5.4 inch to 6.1 inch phones and a 6.7 inch Now let's talk cameras.
The iPhone 9 isn't expected to stray far from the iPhone 8. So that means a single F1.8 lens at the back, likely at a 12 MP resolution.
As for portrait mode, we know it's technically possible for Apple with a single lens, thanks to the iPhone 10R, but we haven't heard anything specific about the software side of the camera just yet.
As for all the other features, well don't expect 3d touch on the iPhone nine because Apple's pretty much killed that off.
You'll also be guaranteed iOS updates for a few more years.
So this phone is definitely targeting those people who are upgrading from something like the iPhone six.
There likely be a red color option as well, and storage-wise, it's no surprise that a 64 or 128 gigabyte variants will be your options.
And three gigabytes of RAM should be more than enough grant for most tasks, and it's only one gigabyte less.
Could be as soon as March.
Apple has held an event every march for the past few years, with the exception of 2017.
So last year, we got the announcement of Apple TV plus, and the apple card the year before was a cheaper iPad targeted towards schools.
And 2016 was the original iPhone SE.
So if you're placing bets I'd say we're due for a hardware release in spring 2020, if that history is anything to go by.
[SOUND] Time to recap some of the other big Apple news and rumors this week.
Apple has been called out this week by Attorney General William Barr for not giving, quote, substantive help in unlocking two iPhones belonging to the gunmen at a shooting at a Florida navy base last year.
The company said it did provide iCloud backups, account information and transactional data in response to initial requests.
President Trump has also treated and called on Apple to step up to the plate.
A 13 inch MacBook Pro with scissor keyboard might be coming soon according to an Apple filing with the EEC, stay tuned.
And would you believe 13 years ago, Steve Jobs announced the original iPhone at the now-defunct Mac World in San Francisco.
Suprising the tech worldwide everyone was at CES.
As always make sure to leave your comments on the iPhone 9 and if this $400 is the one you're waiting for.
And make sure to come back next week for more Apple core.
