$249 iPhone SE Temporarily Back in Stock on Apple's Clearance Site

For those who have been unable to take advantage of the $249 iPhone SE deal on Apple's U.S. clearance site, Apple again has a limited supply of the discounted 4-inch devices.

You can purchase the 32GB iPhone SE in gold for $249 or the 128GB ‌iPhone SE‌ in space gray or silver for $299.

Apple has been offering ‌iPhone SE‌ models on clearance since mid-January, but available stock often sells out quickly. Apple has done several restocks, however, giving those who prefer smaller devices one last chance to purchase a 4-inch iPhone on the cheap.

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.

With these clearance sales, Apple seems to be getting rid of remaining ‌iPhone SE‌ stock, and it's clear that available supply is dwindling. There are just three ‌iPhone SE‌ models that can be purchased on the site now, while earlier stock updates had more options.

Those who want to get an ‌iPhone SE‌ should do so soon because it's not clear how many more restocks Apple will be offering.

Not a great form factor (screen size) for older folks.

Older dude here. Do not want to carry around a dinner plate in my front pocket.

Love the small form factor. Love the home button. Love the headphone jack. Camera works great. Only paid $130 for a brand new SE when I jumped to Total Wireless. So done paying gobs of money for a smart phone.

Both of my folks are 84 and they each have an SE.

Are you saying they’re wrong?

Or are you saying that all old people are too stupid to use glasses and have 20/20 vision like everyone else?

Or that only younger folks are smart enough to buy a smaller phone. Oh! Wait! That doesn’t sound right!

I will buy an SE-form-factor iPhone the day it's released, as long as it has the same camera, speed and other features as its big brothers. I love my XR, but I hate having to use two hands to operate it. An all-screen SE would be perfect.

Also may I recommend calling it the SEx?

Solid device but too outdated of tech for me.

Odd that they keep “finding” SE inventory to sell as clearance lots. I wonder if Apple is secretly running a small production line for the SE and using this model to gauge demand.
Or unsold stock is slowly coming back in from carriers and retailers around the world, and is being sold off in batches.
