There have been several rumors lately about the future of the iPhone SE (and even some discussions on this board). Many rumors have pointed to Apple’s launch of a 6.1" LCD iPhone to become the new “entry-level” iPhone. It seems the focus there is on reducing price next to an otherwise expensive X and its rumored 2018 successor.
But so far there has been little noise regarding what Apple might chose to do about a small form factor iPhone. The SE is after all not just inexpensive, it’s also smaller than a frying pan which some people still see as a significant advantage.
This latest rumor (although vague and with little credibility) claims that Apple could simply stop selling the SE altogether. The 6.1" LCD would serve as the entry-level, the 7 or 8 could remain as low-budget alternatives. And everybody who enjoys smaller phones can get lost.
