iPhone SE boasts a 4-inch display, while, under the hood, it comes with an A9 chipset. Thus, it is less performant than iPhone 7, for example, which comes with a 4.7-inch display and A10 Fusion CPU. However, iPhone SE has a lot of fans who would love to own a smaller smartphone.

Besides, iPhone SE boasts 2 Gb of RAM, 32 Gb or 128 Gb of internal memory, a 12-megapixel main camera, a 1.2-mp selfie camera with face detection, and a fingerprint sensor mounted on the front side of the device. As for the connectivity, iPhone SE comes with 4G, USB 2.0 Lightning Connector, and 3.5-mm headphone jack.

Why Did Apple Resurrect iPhone SE on Its Online Store?

While Apple did not reveal why it chose to restart iPhone SE sales, according to Digital Trends, the Cupertino-based company made that move to clear out any inventory it had and boost the overall sales. Apparently, Tim Cook confirmed, in a letter to investors, that Apple is now selling below the expected level, and the predictions for Q1 2019 sales are also gloomy.

Even though the statistics show that the interest in smaller smartphones like iPhone SE dropped significantly in 2018 in comparison to 2016 and 2017, there are many iPhone SE fans out there. Plus, iPhone SE’s A9 chipset is still very capable, so iPhone SE is not as outdated as it may look at first glance.
