    Hey guys, so I am coming from an iPhone 5c and very much am thinking of upgrading my phone in the near future, saying which probably in a year or so. Since Apple reduces the price annually when a new generation is out, I was wondering if iPhone SE will still be around when iPhone 7s/8 is out next year? Even if it's around, does anybody think it's worth to have an iPhone SE? Your advices are appreciated.

    Apple may or may not make an iPhone SE successor, and having the current iPhone SE on sale from Apple for another year is unknown, but it will surely be supported with software updates for at least 2-3 years more.

    That's a a tough question to answer. The first 'budget' iPhone was the 5c.. back in 2013. Then after 2 and a half years Apple brought out the iPhone SE as their 'Budget' iPhone this year (2016).. so it looks like they want to continue with this 'budget' version device but only release one every 30 months or so.

    So i would say YES the iPhone SE will still be around until the end of next year. I think in 2018 we will se a new 'Budget iPhone' come out.
