Apple too seems to have been taken by surprise with the sort of response the entry-level iPhone model has garnered so far.

And analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, who has a very solid track on Apple scoops, explains that there's a good chance this would happen, only that the Cupertino-based tech giant would embrace a different approach for this new iPhone generation.

The new iPhone SE shares a similar design to the iPhone 8, the larger iPhone SE Plus is expected to share a similar design to the iPhone 8 Plus.

Meanwhile, in other related news, Kuo also opined Apple might be forced to delay the launch of the iPhone 12.

CIRP also released data showing that iPhone owners are not upgrading to the newest model as quickly as they used to.

According to Ming-Chi Kuo, the 5.4 and 6.1-inch iPhone 12 models could enter mass production until September, while the iPhone 12 Pro Max with a 6.7-inch display could begin mass production until October. The Verge reports that the analyst said back in December that the phone would have a 5.5-inch or 6.1-inch screen and use a Touch ID sensor located inside the power button. The phone was previously rumored for a release in the first half of 2021. However, we think that Apple will likely postpone the new model from 1H21 to 2H21.

With that in mind, we want to guide you through the best reasons to buy the iPhone SE 2 right now, the best reasons to wait, and the best reasons to go with something else. So, its understandable buyers opting for the more reasonably priced iPhone SE rather than the premium iPhone 11 series.

CIRP's new data covers the first quarter of 2020 (January-March) and it says that in the states, the iPhone 11 family accounted for 66% of total iPhone sales in the USA during that time period.

The 2020 iPhone SE has the look of an older iPhone but it is powered by the same processor found in the iPhone 11.

Needless to say, if you want a cheap iPhone with excellent specs, the iPhone SE 2 is an appealing option.
