iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus discontinued as iPhone SE takes their place

Apple has just launched the second-generation iPhone SE (iPhone SE 2020). Just like the iPhone 8 lineup, the new iPhone SE is compact. It also packs high-end features of the iPhone 11 lineup including the A13 Bionic chip. What’s more, the iPhone SE 2020 has a starting price of just $399.

The launch of the new iPhone SE has directly affected the iPhone 8 lineup. With the release of the iPhone SE 2020, Apple discontinued the iPhone 8 lineup on April 15, 2020. After announcing the iPhone SE 2020, the company has now stopped selling the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus.

The decision to discontinue the iPhone 8 lineup makes sense considering what the iPhone SE 2020 has to offer. In fact, the new iPhone SE is basically an upgraded iPhone 8 with a 4.7-inch display and Touch ID.

However, this means that we will lose the plus-sized version since the iPhone SE 2020 does not have a plus size. This does not mean that we will never get it though. Rumors suggest that we may actually get a Plus version of the new iPhone SE too in the future. For now, just the regular iPhone SE 2020 is replacing the iPhone 8 lineup.
