    Haven't been able to find a definitive answer on this. I know Apple usually launches new phones with the latest iOS, but this being an off-cycle introduction, do you know if it will have 9.3 or something earlier?

    The reason I ask is: will I have to setup my SE as a new phone, upgrade it to 9.3, and then restore from my iPhone 5's 9.3 backup? I hope that's not the case, as it would confuse many people out there.

    This has already been answered by another thread. Yes it will have iOS 9.3

    I asked the question a few days ago. Just make sure if there is an update between now and next week to 9.3.1, DO NOT UPDATE if you plan to restore from backup. Otherwise you will have to set the phone up as new, then update, then you can restore from backup. It is a non-issue if you set the phone up as new.

    I made the mistake with the 6S. 9.0 had an update a few days before the 6S was actually delivered. It's not a big deal, but an unnecessary step.

    In OS specs of the SE's page, it lists Night Shift as a feature, so the answer would have to be "Yes."

    Pretty sure Tim Cook answered this in the affirmative in the reveal the other day.
