We've been waiting for the iPhone SE 2, an updated version of Apple's budget smartphone, for awhile now - and it might actually be released early next year in "Spring" 2020, according to a new report. Thanks to more reliable devices, incremental upgrades, and the elimination of generous carrier subsidies, the reality is that iPhone owners simply aren't upgrading to new devices the way they used to.
Apple is considering putting its fingerprint sensor in 2020 iPhones "if testing is successful", Bloomberg reported. Launching a low-priced iPhone would keep it engaged with the competition. I don't know why, but we might see it in the new iPhone.
The 4.7-inch iPhone SE might be old and outdated but it still has its own fair share of userbase due to its small size and low price tag.
Apple doesn't have compelling offers for these consumers at present.
Steve Smith smashes another Ashes ton on comeback from concussion injury

Vegetarian And Pescetarian Food Connected To Lesser Probability Of Coronary Heart Disease
A study of nearly 50,000 people found those who ditched meat and fish were 22 per cent less likely to get coronary heart disease. Vegan and vegetarian diets are linked to a lower risk of heart disease but may increase the risk of stroke, experts say.
Rand firms on positive GDP data, stocks flat
On an unadjusted basis, GDP grew 0.9 percent year-on-year in the second quarter after stagnating in the previous three months. Increased economic activity was reported for financial intermediation, real estate activities and business services.
Nikkei reports that Apple will launch the low-priced iPhone in the spring of 2020 to address falling global sales and losing ground in emerging markets to the likes of Huawei and Samsung. With the iPhone X in 2017, Apple replaced Touch ID with Face ID, which has proven to be relatively secure but polarizing for iPhone fans.
The iPhone 7 with an A10 Fusion chip costs $450, but with features from three years ago, consumers have plenty of other Android options. A sensor under the screen would allow it to go back to fingerprint tech, which it pioneered on the iPhone back in 2013.
Analyst Gartner in August also reckoned that the Galaxy A series devices were key to Samsung returning to growth globally in Q2 after six consecutive quarterly declines.
That means the notch at the top of iPhone screens would likely remain. Further, 5G coverage will be far more expansive by the time Apple's 5G iPhones hit store shelves in about 12 months from now, which is to say upgrading to a 5G device next year will be far more practical than it is today. New iPad models are expected to be available in October.
