            the last line on the article, it can be a big what if apple made a plus version of their SE model? besides both 6 and 6 plus have great sales in apple's history

              Besides that look at the spot and size of the camera glas; so even esthetically the design is different.

              What can be said the 6 is the weak grandfather of the stronger and internally quite different 7 / 8 designs.

              Iphone SE is definetely iphone 7 based. Try to bend it.

                iPhone 6 design, even though it looked nice for that period, it had a lot of structural problems. That is why they correct them with iPhone 6s and improved them further with iPhone 7 and 8.
                But, the article is about the design, which is similar. Not identical of course.

                    M/S Apple company, This is to inform your company’ administration wing IF it’s possible to increase the present iOS 12 to 15 to i6 phone. If you will do as above I can surely tell that the sale of iPhone 6 will go beyond your sale expectations. Just think Regards your customer.

                      Even Apple switched to Oled for all its line-up of phones, because they saw they are way better. They kept the Lcd display just for the iPhone SE series because they wanted to make it cheap. Is not bad Lcd, but saying is better than an Oled display, yeah right..they are living in their bubble and nobody can save them.

                        Well the title should also read that every single current iPhone released today is also a design which was recycled since the iPhone X back in 2017.

                          That's utter rubbish, since when did OLED give eye strain compared to standard TFT?

                            Iphone SE 2020 / 2022 is based on Iphone 7 or even 8.
                            Iphone 6 is entirely different build altough the looks are there.
                            So i call B.S. to this article.

                              Anonymous, 13 Mar 2022At least the users have a choice.Yeah should I get the current model, it’s still decent predecessor from yesterday or wait till tomorrow for the successor…..

                                The worst iPhone design that lives on after 8+ years. The design for it peaked with the matte black 7. The best iPhone design dropped in 2012. The 5-series still remains my favorite. I owned the 4-series since launch but having a glass back and having it heftier is not for me.

                                People love the X-series but I can't stand glossy glass backs. Get the frosted ones of the Pro models from the 11-13. To me, it's 5S/SE, then 4/S, and then matte black 7. I could actually buy another iPhone 7 again but why bother? I generally can't stand iOS. Haven't used my SE1 for over a month because battery life dies so quickly since iOS14.

                                  It lives because like 2014, 2022 are filled with thoughtless consumers that just want an iPhone.

                                    Funny how gsma is making marketing for apple, isnt even trying to hide it
