In my last blog post, I wrote about the newly launched iPhone SE 2 which has an iPhone 8 design with iPhone 11 internal specs. The new iPhone, however, does not have a plus variant, and buying the iPhone 8 Plus as an alternative budget iPhone is also harder considering Apple have stopped selling the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus on their website to make way for the iPhone SE 2.
However, rumours and leaks have now started circulating about a Plus variant for the iPhone SE 2. Previously, Apple analysts have claimed that the iPhone SE 2 Plus is expected in the first half of 2021, but now analysts claim that the iPhone SE 2 Plus has been postponed until the second half of 2021 likely due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The coronavirus pandemic has affected us a lot. Things have changed a lot, from our health and wellbeing to significant changes to our lifestyle. Towns and cities that used to be bustling with people having fun are now empty with the exception of one or two people keeping a distance from each other while they pop out to get essentials such as groceries. As well as our daily lives and health, the coronavirus has also affected the tech industry.
As more and more countries shut down, so do tech shops there. There has been less demand for phones and your only way of buying an iPhone now is to buy it online.
The iPhone SE 2 is an example of how coronavirus is affecting the tech industry. The iPhone SE 2 was expected to launch on the 31st March but instead launched on the 15th April likely due to delays caused by the virus.
You can currently order the iPhone SE 2 online but there may be a delay in delivery because delivery companies are prioritising essential items (like toilet roll).
