iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus Discontinued

Apple today stopped selling the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus after announcing the second-generation iPhone SE.

The second-generation iPhone SE is essentially an upgraded iPhone 8, with a 4.7-inch display and Touch ID home button, but with a faster A13 Bionic chip. As of now, there is no Plus-sized version of the new iPhone SE, so there is no direct replacement for the 5.5-inch iPhone 8 Plus, although rumors suggest that an iPhone SE Plus is under development.

Apple introduced the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus alongside the iPhone X in September 2017. Key features included a glass-backed design with wireless charging, improved water resistance, and upgraded cameras.

The new iPhone SE starts at $399 in the United States. For more details, read our announcement post.

Update: While no longer sold by Apple, Rene Ritchie notes that the iPhone 8 Plus will remain available through select retailers for the time being.

SE is $50 cheaper than iPhone 8, it didn't make sense to continue selling it. I wonder if they'll release an SE Plus for people who like the 5.5" display eventually or the Plus size is gone forever.

This time around, I doubt it.

I think Apple wants to avoid flooding their iPhone lineup as much as possible, so there will be no SE Plus, just the SE to keep it simple.

I doubt many people were buying iPhone 8 Plus for $549 when XR was $599.
You would be wrong then. Many people still prefer touch id and NO notch. I just bought two 8+, one as a spare to hold me over until Apple gets their s**t together and can make a notchless, embedded touch id phone.
