Apple kicks off iPhone SE clearance sale, save up to $150 on unlocked models
Although Apple has already discontinued the iPhone SE, the Cupertino-based company realized that it could still make some money from selling this product. As such, the iPhone SE was made available for purchase directly through Apple's official store at a good $100 discount.

Every time Apple starts to sell the iPhone SE on its website, the phone sold out quite fast. Today, Apple has kicked off another iPhone SE clearance sale, but this time customers can choose just about any color or model (32GB, 128GB).

The 32GB iPhone SE is available for $250, while the 128GB costs $300. All phones come unlocked, even though many of them are labeled as having a carrier SIM for AT&T, T-Mobile, and Verizon.

Since we're not sure how much stock of each model Apple has on sale at the moment, we're in no position to assume how long it will take for the iPhone SE to disappear from the shelves. Typically, it takes between a few hours and a few days for Apple to sell all its iPhone SE units, so you might want to hurry if you're looking to buy one.

I had one for a few months shortly after it came out. I loved the form factor. Was awesome to have high end specs in a small form factor. But the screen was picky, and wouldn't register my touch inputs. I would also see the same issue on the 5 and 5s in some of the YouTube videos I watched, so I think it was something with the digitizer. My iPhone 6 never had this issue.

According to an apple rep these are refurbished units, not sure if that’s true or he was trying to sell me a newer iPhone... can anyone confirm this?

It depends I guess, if they are making new SE’s that’s one thing, if they have a warehouse full of SE’s collecting dust that’s another, and it makes sense to sell them and get rid of them.

I'm really amazed with the SIM options. I have never seen Apple do this with refurbished phones of theirs.

A lot of users have been wanting a re-issue of the SE model. So this is either apple actually listening to their customers, or a hint of desperation to boost device sales?
