The iPhone SE bookings (2020) opened last Friday and since then, interested users can book the terminal. The official delivery date is this Friday, March 24th, although it is very possible that some will be made earlier. As is usual with launches, it is interesting to see the delivery dates as the days go by. This way we can get an idea of the popularity of a product.
Deliveries at the end of April in Spain, beginning of May in the USA
With the opening of the iPhone SE reservations, Apple opens the iPhone ban in 2020. A handset that’s much more than the heart of an iPhone 11 in an iPhone 8 chassis, waiting times for the iPhone SE are the following on the Spanish website:
- iPhone SE blank, all capacities: April 29th to May 7th.
- iPhone SE in black, all capacities: April 29th to May 7th.
- iPhone SE in red, all capacities: April 29th to May 7th.
This means that the three capacities of 64GB, 128GB and 256GB have the same estimated date. For the United States, deliveries are slightly later. All colors and all models are delivered from May 6 to 13.
On the French website, 64GB models are delivered in one to two weeks. The 128GB red color too, the rest of the options are estimated in 5-7 days. As for Germany, we find models which are being sent out next week and others in early May.
A terminal that lowers the iPhone’s access barrier again
With each new generation of iPhone, Apple discounts the price of the previous two substantially. So a user can get a relatively modern iPhone at a more affordable price that when he came out. In combination with additional discounts and Black Friday or Christmas campaigns, they become quite attractive.
The iPhone SE blends a strategy that delves into affordability and adds modern key elements. We’ve already detailed how the iPhone SE compares to its two immediate predecessors, as well as to the closest Android competition. Because it’s the phone that’s currently offers better value for money.
The iPhone SE has been the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus recall as input terminals in the ecosystem. At least in the official website, because in others we can find these two models and even earlier with a higher discount.
The original iPhone SE debuted in March 2016 and was on sale until September 2018. Since then, the company lacked a terminal to accompany the latest generation (except for their sporadic return). With this new iPhone SE (2020), Apple is once again fighting the battle in the mid-range with cutting-edge specifications.
We will have to wait for the shareholders’ conference for Tim Cook and his team to reveal some data on their progress in the market. It will be interesting to see how it affects a launch that can only be purchased online and not through a physical store.
