The iPhone SE from 2016 was Apple’s first budget phone and a new version of it called the iPhone 9 or iPhone SE 2 might be coming out this spring. Rumors of an iPhone SE 2 have been percolating for a couple of years, and the timing couldn’t be better.

But in order for the iPhone 9 to be a success it needs to recapture some of that original iPhone SE mojo. With the iPhone XR and 11, Apple proved it can create phones packed with value. And it seems likely that the company could do the same for a truly budget iPhone.
