Redesigned iPhone SE could be more expensive

We’ve been hearing a lot of rumors about the next generation iPhone SE, which is expected to be announced sometime next year with a major redesign compared to the current model. Of course, one of the main selling points of the iPhone SE is the more affordable price – and there’s some news about that.

Apple rumored to increase iPhone SE price

According to leaker @Revegnus1, the iPhone SE could be around 10% more expensive in the US following the launch of its next generation next year. Currently, Apple sells the iPhone SE 3 for prices starting at $429 for the 64GB version. A 10% increase would take the starting price to around $469.

At the same time, the leaker also claims that Apple wants to keep the price of the new iPhone SE below the $500 mark. There’s also a chance that the company will keep the same $429 price as the current generation.

For comparison, these are the starting prices for iPhones that Apple currently sells:

Apple has a history of increasing the price of products when they receive a major redesign. This happened with the entry-level iPad in its 10th generation, which went from $329 to $449. More recently, the company brought the price back to $349.

9to5Mac’s take

According to the latest rumors, the iPhone SE 4 will have the same design as the iPhone 14, with a 6.1-inch OLED display, flat edges, and Face ID. The current SE model is still based on the iPhone 8 design with a 4.7-inch LCD display and Home Button with Touch ID.

A price increase for the iPhone SE 4 to $469 or even $499 won’t come as a surprise. However, how Apple will differentiate the new SE from the iPhone 14 (which is expected to cost $599 when Apple launches the iPhone 16 later this year) remains unclear. The company could phase out the iPhone 14, for example.

Recent reports have revealed that Apple is working on a new ultra-slim iPhone for 2025 that would cost even more than the current Pro Max model. If that’s the case, we might see higher prices for the entire iPhone lineup next year.

The Information says Apple plans to introduce iPhone SE 4 in spring 2025.
