Apple made the iPhone SE available on its U.S. clearance website over the weekend, with little fanfare. It cost around $250 (via The Times). The device appeared to be sold out at the time of this writing.

The model was originally released in March 2016. Apple removed it from its website in September 2018 after it released the more expensive iPhone XS and iPhone XR. In recent times there have been rumors that Apple would release an iPhone SE 2, but we have had nothing confirmed yet.

Gauging Popularity

Writing for Forbes, Ewan Spence noted that Apple could also gaining useful data from people browsing for the re-available iPhone SE. This could help the firm gauge the popularity of the phone. Perhaps we will see a new version after all?

I have an SE. I think it’s a great phone. Fits in my pants pocket. I rarely use a phone for other than messages, phone calls and occasional driving directions. Don’t need a big screen. I do all the big screen stuff on my iPad. My favorite phone ever was the iPhone 4


I’m the same. My SE rides in my jeans pocket for messages, occasional directions, and other quick things, oh and phone calls. Even the giant 6.5″ I phone is not big enough to DO anything on. For that I carry my iPad Pro.


iPhone X and XS are massive. Need something a bit less bulky in the lineup. I got my wife’s hand me down SE to replace my 5S because she got an 8+. The 8+ is not that much bigger than grandma’s XS. I was surprised how big they are.


Hey Apple. Some of us don’t want a huge phone.
