Discounted $249 iPhone SE Once Again Back in Stock on Apple's Clearance Site

4-inch iPhone enthusiasts who have been unable to take advantage of the $249 iPhone SE deal on Apple's clearance site can once again make a purchase, as Apple has restocked the website and has a limited supply of remaining ‌iPhone SE‌ models available.

The models available today are unlocked but have SIM cards from carriers that include TracFone, T-Mobile, AT&T, and Verizon. There are a range of colors available from each carrier, with 32GB models priced at $249 and 128GB models priced at $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. Those who want to get an ‌iPhone SE‌ should do so soon because it's not known how many more restocks Apple will be offering.

Pretty please. This was the last sanity checked phone size before we had to turn into Elastigirl to reach for the top part of the screen with our thumbs.

yassssss finally succeeded in getting 128GB Space Gray!

Recommendation: If you're buying one (or more) of these, pick up the $99 dollar AppleCare+! With the discount it's more than worth it!

On a phone that is $271 or $328 (or so) after tax, $99 for AC+ is a lot for a low priced phone.
