Apple iPhone SE 2 Could Be Launched In June At WWDC 2018
Apple iPhone SE 2 has been a part of a lot of conjecture over the past few months. The iPhone SE was launched in March 2016 and Apple skipped a generational update in 2017. While there have been plenty of rumours about a possible iPhone SE 2 debuting in 2018, It now looks like the iPhone Se 2 is indeed real and could be launched soon. And For Apple what better than at the World Wide Developer’s Conference 2018 (WWDC 2018) in June.
The model numbers of a few upcoming iPhones have been spotted on EEC, the Russian portal. The EEC filing satisfies Russia’s requirement for companies to register all products containing encryption and/or cryptographic tools. A total of 11 model numbers have been filed with Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC). These model numbers are A1920, A1921, A1984, A2097, A2098, A2099, A2101, A2103, A2104, and A2106. It is worth noting that Apple uses a unique model number for the same iPhone for different regions. And therefore, does not mean that Apple is launching 11 different iPhones.
For example, the iPhone X carries model numbers A1865, A1901, and A1902, depending on the carrier or which country it is being sold in. However, the timing of the filing of these model numbers is very interesting. EEC usually adds new smartphones to its database about a month before the official launch. This means that a possible June launch of the iPhone SE 2 is on the cards. Historically, WWDC has focused on iOS and app development but, Apple did launch the HomePod at WWDC 2017. This means that Apple will not shy away from announcing a major product at this year’s WWDC as well.
