    Is there any news about this so far? I mean are we actually going to have a newer, better SE this year?

    I think this might be a biyearly thing. Considering the big thing of the iPhone 10th anniversary, I can't see them releasing 3 phones. Remember that the SE came out this year, not last year.

    I think we've seen all of the Apple announcements we are going to see for 2016. The SE will eventually get an update but it hasn't even been out a year at this point.

    There was an interesting "IOS" article that I read in Appy-Geek a few days ago that almost made it sound like there might NOT be an SE 2. It mentioned that Apple plans to have a 4.7, 5, and 5.5 inch models, so the new one being the new 5 inch model. All being iphone 8's from what it said.

    Isn't it kind of early for this to be verified?

    Has anyone else seen anything to confirm this?

    Sounds really sketchy IMO. Having three separate iPhones all within less than an inch size range doesn't make any sense to me. The SE has been well received so I doubt it's going anywhere. They may call it iPhone 8 if it gets a refresh next year but I don't think they'll venture too far from the 4-inch form factor.

    Keep in mind, any rumor about next year's iPhone is highly speculative at this point in time.

    That says nothing about a 5" iPhone. My point was that I don't see Apple ditching the 4" form factor and then offering 4.7", 5" and 5.5" inch iPhones. That being said, I'm not surprised at all that the SE isn't getting a refresh in the Spring. I never thought it would be on an annual refresh cycle.

    I SAW the other article about the 5 inch, THIS article is different than that first one I saw and the focus HERE IS "no SE 2."

    BUT THEY ARE ditching the 4 inch form factor, It sure seems like it. And it doesn't make much sense to ditch the 4 Inch because Apple sold more SE's than the 6S, supppsedly.

    But as you say, perhaps it is a rumour."

    No SE in early 2017 but the article states that doesn't rule out a Fall 2017 refresh.

    This.
    I would be surprised for a fall refresh actually.

    I sure hope there's a refresh/update to the SE I'm the near future but I won't hold my breath.

    So far enjoying my SE more than the 6/6 Plus/6S Plus I had before. I'll hang onto it as long as it takes. The 4" form matters more to me than the newest features like force touch and dual cameras.

    I just hope something comes before the SE's hardware can no longer handle the OS updates. Which should be at least a couple of years, considering some still run the 5 and 5S.

    I sure hope you're right because I would like to use my 5C and blackberry 9900 for about another year and that is when I would love an SE 2

    They should put the A10 processor and 128Gb of storage in it. Optical image stabilisation would be cool too.

    I'm really happy with the size since I use my tablet for most of my media consumption. However I'd love to upgrade mine if they gave it the LED screen that's rumored with a much sharper ppi. A louder speaker would help also.

    I used a 6s for about a year - and I remember only getting it because it was the smallest modern iPhone at the time I could find. I jumped on the SE when it came out and haven't looked back. I sincerely hope Apple sees the benefit and the fact that enough people prefer a 4" iPhone, which was the ideal phone size, really...to continue to update it. Steve's last phone was the 4s, which was the last 3.5" phone.

    I saw the 6S in the Walmart flier today and I can get it for the same price as the SE, $0 if I sign a 2 year contract.

    I would still get the SE because I like the squared edges and it gives your fingers a more secure place to rest.

    I don't ever see an iPhone SE refresh. IMO maybe not this year, but maybe the following year if demand is there they restyle the 4" iPhone 5 based SE. This year has all but confirmed 3 new phones already with an iPhone, iPhone Plus, and 3rd device with no bezel and integrated TouchID with potential Facial Recognition.

    Also, the SE was an easy decision. They had the left over 5 and 5s parts and A9 chips available. Just added Rose Gold. If new SE I'd love to see a Matte or Jet Black model
