Man, this rumor just keeps changing and changing. The first rumors of Apple’s 4-inch iPhone suggested it would carry the iPhone 6c name. Then it changed to iPhone 5se. Now 9to5Mac’s Mark Gurman said Apple is just going to go with iPhone SE, with the acronym standing for “Special Edition.”
The rest of the rumored specs remain intact, including the A9 processor, an 8-megapixel camera, support for Touch ID, “Hey Siri” support and more. In other words, it should be a lot like a smaller iPhone 6s, just missing the 12MP camera and possibly other features like 3D Touch. That should help keep the costs down, however, allowing Apple to cater to audiences that might otherwise prefer cheaper and smaller devices. Gurman said 16GB and 64GB models are set to launch.
Apple is expected to announce the iPhone SE on March 15 with a launch scheduled for March 18.
