it you could the PLUS models, there are 8 variations of iPhones. That's not taking into account memory sizes, colors, carriers, etc. Just the models/size combinations

Does this mean they now have more versions of phones than Macs?

I think they will keep the iPhone 6 as long as it continues to sell. I see it (and the SE) as a loss leader that prepaid and budget cellular companies to sell.

Can't they do that with the 7 and 7 Plus?

Kinda surprised the 6s is staying in the lineup.
Maybe they have a large warehouse full of them.

Of course, the SE2 could be based on the 7 when they eventually drop the 6S/+


a phone for every budget, I guess.

Maybe. An iPhone 7 with 256 GB of storage is still kind of a luxury device. Looking at hardware and software, the 6S is a decent place to deprecate support. The 6S jumped up to 2 GB of RAM and in the last year was made with a minimum config of 32 GB of storage so it compares well to the iPhone 7 in hardware features. The A9 is in the 2017 iPad, so it should be supported by software for at least another 2 full years. The iPhone 6 seems like the first version that wasn't originally designed to run 32 bit software, so that might be the real dividing line.

They need something really cheap to make for the BRIC countries. Apple has amortized the design and production costs over two years now, so the only real costs are to keep running the machines and paying the workers.

Two words: Headphone Jack

The SE, 6S and 6S Plus are the only iPhones still sold with built-in standard Headphone Jacks.
