    Do you think it's likely we will see an iPhone SE 2 at today's event?

    No. Very likely it's March 2018 at the earliest before we see and iPhone SE2

    No. There have been no leaks, plus the SE is still doing well.

    If an SE 2 was announced at an event, it would be at an iOS event, which usually happens in September.

    But as it does not appear to be considered a top tier device, it is more likely to get a silent update, which could happen anytime, although more likely to be in the latter part of an iPhone cycle so that it gets current but mature chips (most likely Spring).

    The SE was just refreshed (with more storage). There won't be any new SE, if ever, until next year.

    SE is still a great phone...no refreshments needed at the moment in my opinion.

    Nice thing about it now is the 32GB base model. Someone who just needs a basic iOS phone, or an intro into the ecosystem, can get it pretty cheap on some prepaid plans. Such as Cricket and GoPhone. $200. I bought one as a backup phone to my 7+. Though it seems TINY :)

    The 16GB model was essentially unusable if you wanted to do OS upgrades and had some apps or music.

    The size is wonderful for that but the back is hideous.

    I Made this design and I want this. Apple is working on 3 iPhone models but this is wrong I think. iPhone 8 and this phone is enough.

    And why don't you like the back? I think 5s has a pretty good design :D

    You can get an iPhone SE 32GB for $159 at Walmart on prepaid. It's a great deal.

    I disagree, it needs a better front facing camera and OIS. It's the main reasons why I got rid of mine.

    Now that WWDC is nearly over, all you hopefuls (on a SE2) can go to rest.

    It merely tells me you don't really understand why Apple offered it in the first place.

    They offered it because 33% of iPhone owners still prefer a 4 inch screen.

    I'm walking down the street, as I type out this post right now. One-handed while holding a bunch of stuff in my other hand. You can't do that with an iPhone 6. The convenience of size in the SE is unbeatable.

    It's a dynamite phone.

    Had it debuted at the same time as the 6s, I might have gotten it.

    Only force-touch I do is to position the cursor...thats it.

    I honestly think that they are going to update the SE in 2018. We would have heard rumors by now if it was going to be released in September.

    I am skeptical. I wonder how much more can be done with these parts. It already has 2GB of RAM, 3 would probably drain battery way too much. The screen can't really be changed to anything better. The camera maybe they could include the new parts and keep everything flush, but probably not.

    I think they may design a whole new size of iPhone, bezeless but smaller than the 2 flagships. You end up with a slightly larger screen but with more or less the same form factor as the original SE.

    Sorry, front camera at 1MP in the year 2017 is heresy, refreshment needed badly.

    Refreshment is unlikely. Wish all you want.

    If I remember right the SE was introduced in March of 2016. My guess, and that is all that it is, is that Apple does not want a cheaper phone of their own eating into the sales and profits of their flagship devices.

    The iPhone SE is literally called "Special Edition". I don't know about you, but whenever I've seen anything special edition there was never another one of it. It is a one time deal. I doubt there will be a second SE.

    The SE will have no problem running iOS11 so no need for Apple to bring out a SE2 & they probably won't as mentioned it's a Special Edition.

    But let look what you do get with the SE
    Wifi Calling
    Decent rear camera with 1080p 60fps & 4K Video recording
    A9 which is still plenty powerful enough even by today standards.
    2GB of ram
    Apple Pay
    5Ghz WiFi
    And probably a few other things I've forgot to mention aswell.

    As for the low megapixel selfie cam, it's never been a problem for me I've used it for video calls in the past without problem, and let me tell you their are some far far worst front facing camera's quality wise out there than the SE with alot more Megapixels.

    And 3D touch is a none issue for me & i'll probably wouldn't use it even if it was on the SE.

    So the SE will still be good through out 2018 & maybe beyond.
