Okay, the new iPhone SE, whose strange 3rd edition is postponed until May 11th on May 19, is the new iPhone SE, but major mass retailers Yodobashi Camera and Bic Camera will start selling at the same time as Apple direct sales. Yes, it seems like good news.
However, even though this time is probably a COVID-19 measure, the severe condition is that only those who have a store nearby will … … so I would like you to alleviate this area in the future.
What you shouldn't miss is the fact that both companies will sell the SIM-free version of the iPhone online for the first time, which will be the first simultaneous sale with Apple direct sales. Because the SIM-free iPhone "ban" of both companies was from the iPhone XS at the end of January, the first new iPhone product after the ban will be the new SE.
This simultaneous sale with the Apple Store means that future SIM-free iPhones may also be sold directly with Apple. This is a very important step for the future, where the SIM-free version of the iPhone can be bought at retail stores other than Apple.
