Apple's unlocked iPhone SE is back in stock for the third time this month
The US online Apple Store’s “clearance” section lists the iPhone SE as available for nationwide shipping or in-person pickup yet again, starting at the same discounted price of $249.
That’s down from $349 back before the 4-incher was formally discontinued in September, including 32 gigs of internal, non-expandable storage space. At the time of this writing, the entry-level configuration can be purchased in your choice of gold or rose gold, while the $299 variant with 128GB local digital hoarding room (reduced from $449) is up for grabs in gold, rose gold, and silver paint jobs.
Across the board, you’re looking at brand-new, unopened, unlocked, SIM-free units, compatible with both GSM (AT&T and T-Mobile) and CDMA networks (Sprint and Verizon), although warranty information is notably absent from the revived handset’s details section.
Almost three years after its commercial debut, the iPhone SE remains one of the world’s best ultra-compact smartphones, weighing in at a measly 113 grams with a premium glass-and-metal body measuring 7.6 mm in thickness.
Fully eligible for an iOS 12 upgrade, the Apple A9-powered device comes with a retro Touch ID fingerprint sensor, Apple Pay support, a single 12MP rear-facing camera, and yes, a headphone jack.
