    Agree. The growth (physical) of phones has gotten ridiculous for many of us. We don't want to lug around a flat screen TV so we can text and email. With the new iPad Pro's doing well, I think the SE makes a great partner. Most of my more serious work is done on my IPP which I only bring with me if I need to. The MBP stays at home.

    I can afford the top of the line phones but refuse to pay ridiculous prices and don't like the larger form factor anyway. I think many people feel similar.
    Agreed. It's always nice to have different options to meet different consumers preferences. And I feel that the SE is still a fantastic option for a lot of users.

    Exactly my point as well. It isn't a budget thing for me. If the small phone was the same cost as a regular (4.7" iphone), and had similar specs, I would buy the smaller one every time.

    Fingers crossed for an SE2. My son needs a new phone so this is what we are holding out for. Otherwise will probably look into a refurb 6S.

    I'm really hoping that Apple with come out with a new version of the SE, because so many people prefer it's size. Time will tell!

    Now Forbes is saying that it might make an appearance at the Education event next Tuesday but even the writer of the article doubts it. I'm with him.

    If it's going to be in the 700-800 dollar price range it will make no sense.

    The new SE2 will have a 4.2 inch screen and cost $400? Not sure it's a big deal or not....iPhone SE 2 Specs, Features: Apple Device Reportedly Produced Exclusively In India

    That would be a great price if the base storage is 64gb. I'd pay $500 and get the 128gb then

    As I expected, no SE 2 was announced today. For the people with strong hope, WWDC is all that's left. Not very hopeful of that happening either though. We'll see.

    Sadly that seems true, though there are still rumors of 3 devices this year. Unfortunately if those rumors are true the "cheap" iPhone will be a 6.1" model, not something most SE users would be interested in. There are those that like the SE due to price, not size, but like screen size, price is expected to go up as well, so they seem to be missing all targets.

    Guess its good we have embraced larger devices libra. Falling right into Apple's maniacal plan...

    Right! I think you are so right about that. I just watched EverythingApplePro's video of updated rumors and the lineup is what I figured, with the SE remaining how it is.

    Plenty of other small smart phones are available. For example: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Alcatel-Pix...mUvbUpU3052740
    The 5SE has very wide bezels, so for the same physical size you can get a device with a larger screen. https://3g.co.uk/reviews/lg-k3-revie...eap-smartphone

    There is no requirement for Apple to have events to announce products; such as the iPad last year was not announced at any event, just Apple made an announcement. I think it is possible that could happen with a new SE -- in fact, I could see them doing it (if the new SE has wireless charging, as rumored) when they finally announce the AirPower going on sale, as well as the wireless charging case for the AirPods.

    That's a great point but in recent memory, Apple usually launches new iPhones at events. I can't remember the last time any new iPhones were just announced. Storage bumps and new colors aren't worth a event but a new iPhone? Yep, but maybe with other things as well.

    I still doubt the possibility. If anything, Apple can leave it the way it is and it would be Apple's only phone with a headphone jack.

    That's true there are other small phones, but if you want a small iPhone the SE is it, and if you want a small phone with higher end performance, the SE or the Sony Xperia Compact series are about it, and the Sony is almost the same size as the regular 4.7" iPhones.

    I don't think they are going to have an event for the AirPower or charging case. They already announced them, and they will just go on sale. It would be like the HomePod. Sadly I think our next chance for an SE is WWDC, but more realistically I think it will be the fall if at all. Then all the iPhone releases would be at the same time of the year, which I guess there are pros and cons to that as well.

    I really thought there was going be announcement about a new iPhone SE yesterday. But as I was reading a Live Blog and watching, I realized that it wasn’t the appropriate time for such an announcement. Everything is education-based, and announcing something just for the sake of announcing really would not have been appropriate. My guess is that we will hear something in June at WWDC!

    I think the SE2 has been ready for launching, but as you know, it is assembled in India. It's good for India not just to supply the domestic need for competitively priced phones, but also to export it from India, a lot of them. In the last 10 days or so, I remember reading articles, stating that the Indian government has some issues with Apple regarding satisfying their domestic market, and things are almost on a stalemate now. There is a couple of specific reasons for this but I do not remember what they are (partly because I was so disappointed that the launching of the SE2 would not happen any time soon until they have solved whatever differences they currently have, and stopped reading the article to the end:-).
    But I will definitely be ditching my current iP8 and grab an SE2 as soon as it's made available to outside India.

    There are new rumors today of a WWDC launch of the SE2. Technobuffalo is reporting that there are new iPhone model numbers that have shown up at the European Economic Comission.

    The rumors haven't amounted to anything. Is anyone disappointed? I'll admit that I am just a little bit and it makes me wonder if it will even be a thing at all.

    I think the latest rumors said all phones will come out in September, so I am not concerned right now, after that point I would be. The latest rumors also show an edge to edge screen in the same form factor, which is something I never thought we would see. I would be very tempted to give up my X for that.

    This is true but I'll have to see it to believe it. It's hard for me to believe that they will announce/release 4 iPhones in September because that's a lot of phones at once and that also means that Apple will have to remove a lot of phones from their site/inventory as well.

    Let's keep up hopes for a new SE in September. I had thought Apple might announce it yesterday, but then I heard they weren't going to announce any hardware.... just software only. So for the SE fans out there.... hang tight!

    My suspicion is that they may have some type of summer hardware event. Allegedly they still are supposed to be announcing new iPads. I don't believe an SE2 will be announced in September; the most solid rumors I've seen point to only 3 phones announced in September, with the smallest being the same size as the current X.


    I'm still hoping for an SE2 but I suspect we will need to see it before September, or that there will not be one until at least next year.
