Apple is once again offering the iPhone SE on its clearance site, making the now-discontinued device available for $249 to $299.

You can purchase the 32GB iPhone SE in Gold, Space Gray, Silver, or Rose Gold for $249, and the 128GB iPhone SE is also available for $299 in all colors.


The iPhone SE models Apple has available are discounted by $100 for 32GB of storage and $150 for 128GB of storage. The iPhones for sale are unlocked and brand new in box.

Apple originally discontinued the iPhone SE in September 2018 when the iPhone XS, XS Max, and XR were announced. Apple's iPhone lineup now starts with the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus as its entry level devices.

The iPhone SE, first announced in March 2016, was the last 4-inch smartphone that Apple offered, with the 4.7-inch iPhone 7 and iPhone 8 models now the smallest that Apple officially sells in retail stores.

Apple added discounted iPhone SE models to its clearance store on January 19, but available stock quickly sold out. Apple refreshed the store this afternoon to add additional supply, though what's in stock now could also potentially sell out quickly.

We don't know for sure why Apple is selling the iPhone SE again, but it's likely that Apple is clearing out remaining iPhone SE stock.

In 2018, there were rumors suggesting Apple was working on an iPhone SE 2, but in hindsight, some of the rumors were conflated with iPhone XR rumors and no second-generation 4-inch device materialized.

Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, who often provides accurate insight into Apple's plans, said in early 2018 that an iPhone SE 2 was unlikely, and other analysts have also suggested Apple no longer has plans to produce a new 4-inch model.
