The worst part of buying a new iPhone is holding your nose and forking over hundreds for a thing Apple will be trying to convince you to replace in 10 months. A 64GB iPhone 6s lists for 749, and if you're inclined to spring for the huge iPhone 6 Plus or iPhone 6s Plus, the bill can quickly climb as high as four figures. Though it's still not exactly cheap for a smartphone, the iPhone SE's pricing model looks pretty good in comparison. Officially, it starts at 399 for the 16GB model, but I want you to completely forget that piece of information and repeat after me: "I will not buy a 16GB iPhone, because, in all likelihood, it will significantly limit the shelf life of my iPhone." Unofficially speaking, the iPhone SE starts at just 499 for the (actually usable) 64GB model.
Those in the market for a new phone now have another iPhone to choose from. Apple unveiled its new device, called the iPhone SE, during an event at its campus in Cupertino, Calif. on March 21. The iPhone SE starts at 399, marking the cheapest introductory price for an iPhone yet.
