Apple hosts three launch events each year, as is their custom. These are the Spring launch event in March or April, the World Wide Developers Conference (WWDC) in June and the much-awaited Fall launch event in September or October. While Apple’s spring launch event may not be as exciting as their flagship fall event, the US company is currently launching affordable devices for users, such as the Apple Airtag and the iPhone SE lineup. In that case, speculation is rife that Apple will unveil the new iPhone SE (3rd generation) smartphone and the iPad Air (5th generation) tablet at this year’s Spring Launch event. According to a tech platform source in Japan, the US company has started mass production of these two devices.
Mass production of iPhone SE 3 and iPad Air 5 started
Macotakara, a tech platform affiliated with Asian technology supply chain manufacturers, claimed in a report that the design of the two iPhone SC3 and iPad Air 5 devices has been finalized on behalf of the company and mass production of both devices has started in specific regions. Makotakara in their post also brought out some details of the upcoming iPhone SC3. It is learned that the upcoming iPhone SE3 model will have the same compact housing as its predecessor iPhone SC2. The glass and aluminum chassis of the phone will also remain unchanged.
Significantly, the iPhone SE 3 will not have MagSafe support for charging, the report said. Instead, the device will feature the Qi wireless charging technology used in the iPhone 8 smartphone. Incidentally, the first MagSafe support was introduced in the iPhone 12 series to offer faster and more reliable wireless charging to iPhone users, and this feature has been seen in every iPhone launched by Apple since then.
Note that the major upgrade of the upcoming iPhone SE 3 will be seen in its performance. The phone will come with 5G connectivity support and will be powered by Apple’s own A15 bionic chipset, used in the latest iPhone 13 series flagship smartphones.
