iPhone SE 128 GB and 32 GB coming this Friday

In addition to announcing Product Red iPhone 7 and 7 Plus editions, as well as new iPads, Apple today revealed that it's updating the iPhone SE with new storage options.

Starting this Friday, March 24, you'll be able to buy the iPhone SE in 32 GB and 128 GB flavors for $399 and $499, respectively. The original 16 GB and 64 GB models are being discontinued.

The iPhone SE 32 GB and iPhone SE 128 GB will be available in silver, gold, space gray, and rose gold. Basically, nothing's changed compared to the iPhone SE originally released last year, except for the doubled internal memory.

Needless to say, the iPhone SE remains Apple's cheapest iPhone, as well as the smallest model that's still being officially sold. In fact, with its 4-inch display, this is one of the smallest premium handsets on the market, regardless of OS.

The iPhone SE 32 GB and 128 GB are already listed on Apple's official website. However, they're "currently unavailable" - as mentioned above, they'll be in stock starting Friday. 

Does anyone here plan to get any of the two new iPhone SE models?

Awwww! No processor upgrade? No cool jet black or red panties color option? Pass.

I already have an iPhone 4 and 4S on my desk. I don't need a 3rd iPhone 4. This would have been a much nice phone, if it had taken on the iPhone 6 design and just be smaller. To regurgitate an old design for a $200B company is lame. Apple has really lost its way!

As a device, the iPhone SE offers a lot more bang for your buck at $400, even more so, since the bump up in storage. You get the specs of the 6s, but in a smaller form factor and a superior design, imho.

Or you can also get a 32GB 6S for $560+ if you want a slightly bigger phone.

It's the iPhone 5S, not the 4. I don't think they could fit the internals with a smaller iPhone 6 body without reducing the battery size more

iPhone SE has a larger display, updated internals and cameras. As for the shell, a lot of people do prefer the iPhone 5 body over the one that is found on the iPhone 6s/ 7 and not everyone wants a larger phone.

Darn, and I just bought a refurbished 16GB model that should be arriving tomorrow. But I'm actually a fan of cloud storage, since I use OneDrive already, I think I can make the adjustments to iCloud. But 32GB does sound nice, only because it's what I'm used to coming from Android flagships. I've always liked the iPhone SE, because I do miss the portability of smaller phones and I still get the same specs as the 6s. It's a win-win and I cannot wait to make the switch to iOS.

Yeah I suggest trying out your 16gb SE and seeing how that goes for you. I have had my 16gb SE for almost a year now without any issues. Like you, I'm also a fan of cloud and streaming services. You don't have to use iCloud unless you want to. I don't use iCloud, I still use OneDrive for photo backup, and I back up my iPhone using iTunes. Funnily enough, also like you, I am used to 32gb for the same reason. That and being able to change the color of my iPhone is the only reasons why I am debating at all. I hope that you enjoy your SE! What color did you get?

Thank you for the warm reception! I knew not all iPhone and iOS fans were bad, unlike many tech sites would have others believe. For cloud storage, I use OneDrive for documents and Google Photos for my pictures. The only Google apps I need are Play Music, possibily Gmail, and YouTube and many of the apps I had on my old Android are on iOS and look better! I have no doubt that I can make a smooth transition from Android to iOS. I opted for the Space Gray color, because I prefer the black front as opposed to the white front.

You can always install PhotoSync App. After setting it up, you can make all your new photos and videos offload and organized on your pc as you walk thru the door of your house without the need to push any buttons or opening any apps. (I set up mine to do it manually though). It's automatic, it's wireless, and it's extremely customizable - it'll keep your 16gb sleeper always ready to take new photos and videos.

So many fandroids obsessed with apple, that means Apple is doing it well, hey guys, first take a nap and then go to your nearest Apple Store and buy yourselves an iPhone, iPad and MacBook if can afford it, that way you'll be busy enjoying and learning about good quality and user experience, your obsession will disappear I promise :)

Good quality? Why the paint chipped? Lol You are acting like the Iphone cost $100k. People that talk about money are usually the ones that are poor.:)

I will buy new iPhone SE if it works on CDMA 800 MHz on both Sprint, Verizon in the USA and in Perfectum in Uzbekistan.

It's not worth it because it doesn't have iphone 7 internals.

"It's not worth it because it doesn't have iphone 7 internals" Huh? The iPhone 7 doesn't retail for $400... So, what's your point?

That's the good thing about most Android phones, for $20 you can buy a 64GB SD card and of course poor Apple have to relaunch the same phone just to add some additional storage.

Wtf? They cant come up with a new design? Wow!!!

I do love larger screen phones since Galaxy Note 1, but I switched from Note 4 to iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 6S Plus and now iPhone SE. I'm loving the little one a lot!
