In this article, we answer some of the most commonly asked questions about the iPhone 9. It is the same phone that you have probably seen referred to as the iPhone SE 2.

Is the iPhone 9 or iPhone SE 2 coming out? Is Apple going to ever make one?

With rumours about the iPhone 9 floating around for about 2 years, it has to be asked: will Apple ever make one? Fresh insider leaks say the iPhone 9 is real and will go into production in China in February 2020.

Will Apple iPhone 9 have a home button?

Early rumours suggested that the Apple iPhone 9 will have a physical  Home button and TouchID. This is understandable, considering that its design id based on the iPhone 8. However, Apple has since done away with the Home Button and optimised iOS for button-less operation. It is not likely that the American smartphone manufacturer will resurrect it in 2020. As such, do not expect a home button on the iPhone 9.

  1. I’m sure Apple won’t be calling it iphone 9, because iPhone 11 has already been made, is like going backwards with the number if they use 9 after 11.
