Back in 2015, Apple disappointed fans by stopping the iPhone C range after the success of iPhone 6s and iPhone 6S Plus. However, iPhone SE was launched by the company, which was speculated for a very long time.
Apple launched the iPhone 5 SE at an event on March 21 at Cupertino, as well as a 9.7-inch iPad Pro and new bands of Apple Watch. It was reported that Apple will start the pre-orders for the iPhone SE on Mar 24 and shipping will be done on Mar. 24.
Similar to iPhone 6S, iPhone SE is available in silver, gold, Space Grey, and Rose Gold. The device comes in 16GB and 64GB storage models which are priced at £359 (AU$ 531.34) , £439 (AU$ 649.75) respectively.
