These rumors have mixed up so much. Apple doesn't return to Touch ID after saying Face ID is thousands times more secure.

If there is another iPhone SE it should be “small edition” and not the cheap-out version. In other words, a modern iPhone designed to be smaller. If Apple would just make an iPhone that fits the physical size of the current SE but with the X style treatment I would buy it immediately.

Do these people really believe that Apple will walk back on Face ID? After going with it on the iPads, the company has given more than enough evidence that it is fully invested in it. Never mind the fact that once you use Face ID you realize how much superior it is to Touch ID.

I beg to differ. I am often having to do multiple swipes/attempts to get a successful authentication. TouchID worked much better for me and my use cases with near 0 re-attempts.
