Where is the iPhone SE+ ?

by birtanpublished on April 15, 2021

A very common request or question I got once the iPhone se dropped is where is the Plus version where's the plus variant and it's not completely out of left field I mean 95 Mac reported on it happening John processor said it's been delayed so it's not like it's impossible that it could exist but either way I have some thoughts on the matter let's begin so five iPhones a year huh that's not enough for you you'll want to push it to six well I guess you know a very popular segment so having diversity for everybody to choose from for all of the different use cases out there I guess is a fine thing it may be a little

Complicated but hey a lot of you guys want a 5.5 inch version of the iPhone se which is essentially yes take the iPhone 8 plus and do exactly what the iPhone se God which was three gigs of RAM a 13 chip you know update those insides make it you know fresh for the new 20/20 lineup so Center that logo on the back ditch the iPhone label make it come in three color variants black bezels on the front and remove 3d touch and you can start it at a little bit lower than the eight plus started at but there's a few possible reasons why Apple may have scrapped this project altogether there's

No one reporting that I'm just saying it's possible or a reason why maybe Apple just wasn't planning on doing this in the first place which is iPhone launch timing is kind of important for Apple and what they've done in previous years is launch iPhones six to seven months after the flagship iPhones were launched so that's when they launch the initial se it's when they launched the current se you know it's kind of midway between the big refresh coming in September and in previous years they'd even release like limited edition product red versions of iPhones like

Halfway in between because Apple usually releases a couple of iPhones at the same time each year you get a lot of sales at first and then it slows down over time so if you release a new iPhone even if it's not a big one in the middle of that you know annual refresh you get to peak your numbers a little bit again before you know the lowest part of the year which is right before the new iPhones come out so but the fact that they released it in mid April is kind of nearing the end of that like halfway mark so if they're not releasing it now I don't think it's very likely they

Would want to release it in the summertime or just a few months before the iPhone 12 drops because then a lot of people can get confused about wait is this a new iPhone or is this just a middle step between the next new iPhone because Apple likes to keep this stuff very so the halfway mark between iPhone refreshes is a good time to drop your little you know mid-range iPhones but you typically don't want to do that just a couple of months before the iPhone 12 comes out so that's why I would say Apple is probably just going to be fine

With the regular se because a lot of Apple's logic for keeping around the iPhone 8 plus was like well if you like the home button and you like the traditional iPhone design but you want portrait mode you can just go ahead with the 8 plus but the difference is now of course the new iPhone se has portrait mode on both the front and the back camera so that's no longer an exclusive feature the 8 plus has the 8 plus only had like a telephoto lens that was like the one advantage it would probably have over the se alongside yes being bigger and having a 1080p display so yeah some

Of you are probably in the camp of I want 1080p on my phone and I want the home button and I want the traditional design but just give me those up-to-date specs you know just give me the a13 chip and honestly while I don't think it'll happen I think would be a really awesome phone because one of the reasons we found out the iPhone se does not have night mode despite having the a13 chip is that night mode requires dual focus pixels which is primarily achieved by having an ultra-wide camera in a standard camera that kind of both take pictures simultaneously and that helps a

Lot with low-light performance and because the iPhone se only had one camera on the back it doesn't really get that dual focus technology so if they were to refresh the 8+1 last time one last home button iPhone and give it an ultra-wide camera on the back instead of a telephoto and then bring night mode to the iPhone se plus or whatever they decide to call it that would be a pretty compelling option I mean for 500 bucks ok you lose 3d touch but you get the a 13 chip 1080p display which a lot of people complain about these days but the updated camera so you'd be getting

Similar camera performance from the iPhone 11 because this is still powered by the a 13 chip update that for 20/20 yeah I think that would sell pretty well in fact it would probably make a lot of people feel like they shouldn't get the iPhone se that just dropped because for only a hundred bucks more you get all these extra features that are included with the plus model including you know a larger battery which is probably one of the weakest points of the iPhone se is that battery life is rumored to not be so great but battery life was very decent on the iPhone 8 plus and there's

No 3d touch a 13 chip is more power-efficient like let me be clear I want this to happen and I phone se+ would be a really really compelling phone for a lot of people especially if Apple is advertising the new SC to people who bought the seven plus and the eight plus apples like hey you should come to this new phone but some of those older people would prefer to keep the form factor they have now they like those plus iPhones it's not just about the camera performance it's also about the display size in the resolution you know it's easier to read

Stuff on their keyboard is a lot wider and easier to type on for some not all so why not provide that option I mean I don't know it could just come down to complexities and manufacturing you know they already are recycling the old iPhone 8 assembly lines maybe Apple believes that since the new S II has portrait mode there's not a huge logistical reason to keep around the plus model but personally because they didn't drop it in mid April and it's more than likely not going to be dropping in the next couple months that's why I think that there could have

Been one internally there could be a prototype or something that other leakers and analysts are hearing about but that does not guarantee that the product is actually happening so yeah welcome back to taillow civ Tech and this is where I crush everyone's dreams iPhone se plus yep they would probably have amazing specs that could put some amazing technology in it and for people who don't care about the bezel is trend and face ID this would be a huge very appreciated option that people could buy and use for a long time but because Apple wants to probably keep the iPhone

Lineup a little bit more simple and it's already getting really complicated and they want to convince people that you know face ID is the future you know they're not going back on touch ID they're just kind of recycling that old design for those people who want it but they're not going to crazy with it you know you can come up with endless concepts of your head for just different use cases for people like you could make the argument that well some people want a really nice display but they don't care about the camera at all so why not make a version of the iPhone 12 Pro max

With a six point seven inch OLED display but like one camera on the back that's really really bad and that helps bring the price down it's like sure that would probably cater to some people some people may like that but that doesn't mean Apple's gonna make a model for each individual use case they kind of have to eventually just pick one and hope that's the best case scenario for the most amount of people but what do you guys think am I wrong is the iPhone se Plus actually happening let me know on Twitter join my discord we can chat more about it there this is your obviously

Peer and I apologize for ordering the white iPhone se I know I'm not as big as a hero as those people who ordered product read their change in the world and I'll see you in the next one
