Even in regular circumstances, Apple’s new iPhones do not all the time ship on time. So it is no shock that throughout the coronavirus pandemic there might be minor delays with the brand new iPhone SE.
That’s in accordance with Apple’s web site, anyway. The iPhone SE retailer web page is giving arrival dates in early May for pre-orders of any new iPhone SE, which formally launches on April 24. As noticed by 9to5Mac, making an attempt to order the cellphone in any storage measurement and shade leads to estimated ship dates of May four on the earliest, and that is only for expedited transport. The commonplace, free transport mannequin delivers no sooner than May 6.
Obviously that is not a life-shattering delay by any means.

Apple’s website does not listing a motive for the later transport dates, but it surely solely takes one look on the state of the world to determine why issues might not work the way in which they’re alleged to proper now.
