No idea when the SE will get updated. They seem to be holding onto it, but it could end up like the iPod Touch, where its update schedule is sporadic.

However, they probably won't increase the screen size. Its whole reason for existing is to be a smaller-screen iPhone. So I think that they'll keep the 4" screen size for the SE, whenever they update it. If you want a 4.7" iPhone, you have the 6s, 7, and 8 to choose from.

Wouldn't that just be an iPhone 7? The SE is a 6S in a smaller package.

There are other differences. Display isn't as good, no force touch, ffc isn't as good as the 6s, older fps. Overall not a big deal but... It isn't exactly just a smaller 6s.

Re: iPhone 8

Also 1st gen TouchID on the SE.

If there is an update of the SE, I expect the body will mostly stay the same, and the updates will mainly be to the internals.

Re: iPhone 8

Going with the 8 Plus to upgrade from my 7 Plus. Payment is the same through Apple so why not? I'll wait on the X to see what they figure out. I like the look but I'm not ready to give up the Touch ID and Home Button just yet.

No issue ordering my 8+ this AM. 64gb black. They made the process real easy from the store app. Recognized my carrier and took care of everything.

Re: iPhone 8

Got my upgrade to the 8+ right at 2 AM our time with the Apple app. Had it all pre-filled out so it was literally one click. Couldn't have been easier. 9/22 delivery.

I went the same route as you. They were still available this morning when I went into the app at 6am ET. One click and done.

Re: iPhone 8

Surprised so many of you are going for the 8 instead of the X.

I had 2 upgrades available. So I'll use the 8+ until the X is available. Then my wife will get a "lightly used" 8+.

Honestly, the lack of TouchID/Home Button, the reconfig of the UI and the price were all turn-offs. I'll wait for the next iteration before considering the X.

Just upgrading my 7+ to have wireless charging and slightly better specs was enough for me this round.

Re: iPhone 8

Since I'll be going from an iPhone 5 16GB to and iPhone 8 I don't think I'll be needing 256GB, so the 64GB is fine. I don't use the phone to watch movies or play games on it.

Yep, no made it very very easy for me to skip the X.

Also I think they'll be phasing out the LCD phones after this and expand the X line. They literally called the X the future of the smartphone, so that's clearly where they're going with future phones. I'll wait till they work out some of the kinks before jumping in, especially for that price.

I had no problem getting my 256 GB space grey 8 Plus last night through the upgrade program. I had set it all up through the Apple Store app in advance and literally just had to hit submit. Easiest pre-order since the 5s.

Probably the same treatment as the iPad Pro, where they basically created a new higher end line that effectively replaces the previous one at a premium price point.

I think it's pretty clear people are waiting on the X. I'll be getting this. This has to be one of the slowest apple launches ever. Can still get almost every phone for pick up on 09/22

Re: iPhone 8

The X will be the exact opposite in terms of availability.
