Apple at its September 12 iPhone launch event announced its decision to discontinue a few devices in its arsenal. Specifically, Apple has pulled the plug off the Apple iPhone X from last year, and two iPhones with the 3.5 mm headphone jack – the iPhone SE, and the iPhone 6.
The affected devices have since been removed from Apple’s official online store, so those wishing to pick up any of the devices in the U.S might not be able to do so, however, wireless service providers like AT&T and Verizon might still have some stock left, while you can equally always pick up a used one from craigslist.

In the U.S, the new iPhone XS has the same starting price as the iPhone X when it first launched, so the decision to axed it isn’t particularly surprising since intending buyers would ordinarily prefer the newer device in place of the now dated iPhone X. Please do note that the affected devices might still be offered for sale in a few other markets like China, and India, probably until available stocks are depleted.
Although there have been rumors flying around about Apple preparing an iPhone SE 2 in the coming months, a more recent report appears to have dismissed that, claiming that the Cupertino giant is only currently fixated on ramping up the iPhone XR and XS models and that the news of an incoming iPhone SE 2 might not be a worthwhile consideration at the moment.
