Apple recently held a clearance sale for its remaining iPhone SE stock. While it is an old model of the iPhone, it’s still loved by many Apple fans and people who want a comfortable smartphone experience. Here’s why the iPhone SE is a timeless device.


So far, the iPhone SE is known for its small size and smooth design. Its size is a lot smaller compared to the recent iPhone X generation, resulting in a small display for its users. However, the smaller size actually makes it comfortable for users as the device can be easily held regardless of hand size.

Moreover, its features, like the camera, and overall phone design feel smooth to the touch. No bumps can be felt from the camera’s groove on the back of the phone. Meanwhile, the squared off design can feel more polished from the rounded edges of the later generations. The current iPad Pro now has this design for its latest device. In terms of comfort of style, the iPhone SE has definitely aged well.

Headphone Jack

The iPhone SE is one of the Apple products with its own headphone jack. Normally, most Apple devices usually have the Lightning port for most its peripherals such as chargers and its own Lightning jack-compatible headphones. While the Lightning port looks good on devices and reduces space, iPhone devices tend to have lesser versatility when it comes to alternative devices. Due to its headphone jack feature, iPhone SE users tend to have more freedom to use other headphone devices out in the market and even easily borrow from peers without fear of the incompatibility.

Cheaper Price

At its current $249 clearance sale price, anybody would be interested in buying a cheap device from Apple. While the phone is at least two years old by now, it can still hold up in terms of quality as it is an Apple product. While future proofing with this device is limited, users will find its allure in its vintage potential as it stays with them for years to come.
