good time or bad time to buy an iPhone SE?
Posted by: space-time
Date: January 26, 2017 05:47AM
wife needs a new phone, I told her to go to Apple Store and check out if she would prefer a larger phone. No, she says she is just fine with the size of her iPhone 5, and she wants now an iPhone SE like I have. It this a bad time to buy an iPhone SE? I mean do we expect Apple to replace very soon?

Apple may never replace the iPhone SE with a "better" model. Certainly the replacement won't be a true phone in my book because it certainly won't have a headphone jack!

....the best time to buy one is when you need it.....

.....it is a great seller but they have no plans to update the model. As long as it continues to sell well, they will continue to sell it but once that dies down, it will disappear.....

iphone 5s was introduced SEp 2013
iphone 5se was introduced MAR 2016


given that there haven't been daily speculative rumours of an imminent release of the iphone 5 nexgen 2017/2018
it's probably as good a time as any to buy a 5SE.


But some of us can hope if you buy one this weekend they'll be giving them away free like Hallloween candy on Monday. :-)

The SE and the iPhone 7 were 'gap' phones to presumably get Apple time for a major remodel this year.

I honestly don't think Apple will ever offer another 4 inch iPhone. They may continue to sell the SE for years past its prime (as they did with the 3GS).

If the wife wants an SE, get her an SE. Why risk anything other than a happy wife?

The SE price dropped $50 when the iPhone 7 was introduced. I suggest getting the Apple Store sim-free model.

I have what I thought was a phone on my desk. Alas, it does not have a headphone jack.

$399 + tax for the 16GB, $449 + tax for the 64GB if you go through Apple.

I have had no problems finding brand new models with full warranties on eBay for at least $50 under Apple's prices (and no tax, either).
