Apple is harkening back to the golden age of iPhones when it fit easily inside anyone’s pockets and it didn’t cost as much as today’s generation of iOS devices. The company has been taking into consideration those who have been loyal to devices with smaller form factors as it realised that it is once again a market that it needs to conquer. Now that the iPhone SE is finally official, you may already be waiting at the edge of your seats in anticipation for the handset. Don’t fret. We’ve got you covered. Read on and find out when the iPhone SE will land in your region.
Apple will first roll out the iPhone SE in countries such as the United States, the United Kingdom, and Australia. The company will start opening pre-orders on March 24, 2016, but the handset will later be available in stores on March 31, 2016.
As far as the pricing goes, the iPhone SE will start with a base price of AU$679 (US$399, £359) for the 16GB version. The 64GB variant will come with a higher price of AU$829 (US$499, £439) should you want to have one with a beefier storage capacity. It’s also available for AU$22 (US$17) per month by installments, but the option is only limited to US residents at the moment.
On the other hand, it’s still unknown when the handset will see its release date in Canada. According to BNN, the iPhone SE will arrive with a $583 (CDN$579) price tag for the 16GB variant, which is 45 percent more expensive than the United States release. The 64GB version will also reportedly come with a $714 (CDN$709) price tag, which is 42 percent more expensive as well.
The iPhone SE has become one of the most anticipated products from Apple. There have been a large chunk of the company’s userbase that still keeps an aging iPhone 5S, and Apple’s latest 4-inch device could be the one they have been waiting for.
