• Apple started receiving pre-orders for the iPhone SE 2020 on Apr. 17, 2020
  • The first batch of pre-orders is slated to be delivered starting Apr. 24
  • Those who placed their orders for the iPhone SE 2020 starting today will receive the unit between May 1 and May 6

Apple officially launched the iPhone SE 2020 earlier this week and started taking pre-orders on Apr. 17. The first batch of pre-orders is scheduled to arrive on Apr. 24. However, there might be some changes with the delivery schedule of the device, especially in the US, with the iPhone SE 2020 delivery date now slated to tentatively arrive in the first week of May.

iPhone SE 2020 Change In Delivery Schedule

Initially, Apple said that iPhone SE 2020 would be delivered a few hours after purchase starting Apr 24 within the US. However, for those who want to place their order today, the delivery schedule is now between May 1 and May 6. The entry-level iPhone packs powerful specs with an affordable price, no wonder there is a higher than expected surge in demand.

Apart from the unexpected increase in demand, the current COVID-19 pandemic also plays a crucial role in the delay of the delivery of iPhone SE 2020. The deadly virus may have negatively affected the supply chain, causing components essential for the production of the device to run short. The iPhone SE 2020 is available for pre-order in the US and 40 other countries all over the world.
