    Default Should I buy iPhone SE now (July) or wait till iPhone 7 is released?

    Hi everyone,

    I want to buy iPhone SE, because I prefer compact phones. The question is simple... will it be cheaper after iPhone 7 will be released?

    Probably, but I can't say how much cheaper. Having said that, I'd go ahead and get it now.

    I'm not sure if it'll be cheaper. It's not as if the 7 is replacing the SE - it's replacing the 6. Go for it. It's a great little phone.

    This. It probably wouldn't.

    Yeah, SE takes on a specific niche in the Apple Ecosystem or in mobile phones in general. I think the 7 isn't supposed to have any effect on it as both have different target markets.

    No. This is the cheapest iPhone Apple has ever made. Don't expect it to go lower than this.

    I agree with sangs. The SE may not go down in price until an updated version comes out.

    The SE isn't competing against the bigger phones. It will not drop in price once the 7 comes out. It's already cheap enough as is.

    Get the SE you won't regret it. Love mine (went from a 6S Plus).

    Maybe by next spring there will be an SE sized replacement?

    Add me to the list of people who don't think the iPhone 7 will have any affect on the pricing of the SE. Apple generally discounts previous models that have been replaced by newer models. The SE isn't being replaced by anything. In fact, it has a different target user than that of the flagship devices.

    Yeah, it wouldn't be smart to have a 4 inch model iPhone 7. It seems Apple might have two cycles of updates to phones from now on. Or they will wait til iPhone 7s to release an update to the 4 inch model.

    Personally, I hope that if the SE updates, it would not be every year, but every other year.

    I wouldn't be surprised to see Apple use an "as needed" type of upgrade approach, just like they do with every other device that isn't a flagship iPhone. It makes sense to me. Afterall, the majority of SE adopters are coming from the 5/5c/5s, all of which were over 2 years old when the SE was released.

    As most things get older, they get cheaper, especially if a new model comes out and its no longer the brand 'Flagship' device. i always advise waiting as long as possible since their may be a flash sale. I don't think the iPhone 7 launch will affect the SE price since they are meant for different markets but you never know!

    The iPhone SE will not be cheaper because it's a budget phone so don't expect the prices to go down. You should get it. It's a great phone.

    It is a great phone and as far as the price dropping? anything is possible, If the next round of Iphones has a 4 inch variant than yes the SE will go down, but if they are the regular 4.7 and 5.5 inch screens than the SE remains unique and my not go down in price.

    With any tech, the price will decline over time regardless but who knows how fast?

    I say Buy it!

    I also went from a 6s Plus to the SE and I love it! Took a little adjusting to get used to the smaller keyboard, but no problem now! I certainly hope they refresh the phone at some point and keep this model.

    It is most likely going to be cheaper once the 7 is announced and released.

    I personally would wait, if i wanted another larger phone again. but so far these leaks seem to indicate that the iphone 7 will have a similar design to the current 6 and i hate that design for everyday use. Its nice to hold and feel but for usage its basically a wet soap bar. and anybody in prison or used to be in prison will tell you "dont drop the soap". so i stay away from slippery soap.

    Despite all the other advices I would wait
    Just because the cost will remain unvaried - if it will indeed - on the Apple Store doesn't mean some electronic stores won't offer a little discount on the previous models. Also if you didn't buy yet and you re not eager for it could wait till the Black Friday
