Although there were several reports about the iPhone SE series being dead, recent leaks have suggested that Apple actually did not kill it. Instead, they are all signaling that Apple is full-on in preparing the next debut of the budget iOS smartphone. That is, with the iPhone 15 series this year, there will be a new budget-friendly device.
However, you really should not get your hopes up for the upcoming iPhone SE. After all, the lineup does not aim to offer you the perfect iPhone experience. Instead, it is all about providing you with a taste of what the iPhone can be and tempting you to upgrade in the following year. But this time, things for the SE will be more disappointing than ever before.
Budget-friendly iPhone SE Series Don’t Make Sense Anymore
The upcoming iPhone SE, judging by the pricing of previous releases, will come at around $400. Now, there is no doubt that the phone will be cheaper than the other iPhones that will release this year. However, there are already great mid-range devices out there.

Consider the Honor X9a, which has a great display and features praiseworthy specs for the money. Can the new iPhone SE top that? And like the Honor X9a, there are many other great mid-range devices out there, which Apple could never compete against when it comes to value for money.
But it is true that owning the latest-generation “iPhone” is surely something you can boast about. However, things are different for the upcoming iPhone SE. Even if it comes with the latest specs, Apple will hold it back regarding design. Recent leaks even suggest that it will look exactly like the iPhone XR, which launched in 2018!
So, like before, the upcoming iPhone SE will be the weakest phone from Apple. It will be just enough to fulfill your desire to get an iPhone. But it will not be enough to offer the full iPhone experience. In fact, you will be better off with a last-gen Pro Max iPhone.
