Evidence piles up in support of iPhone SE name, 16GB storage option
The iPhone 6c is coming. No, it’s the 5e. 7c. 5se. Just SE, no numerical prefix. We’ve gone through so many rumored branding changes for Apple’s long-in-the-works 4-incher these past couple of months, and particularly the last few weeks, that we just want the controversy to end.
After all, what’s in a name? A dangerous family connection, if Cupertino ultimately decides to go with a digit before se, e or c, as prospective buyers don’t need to be reminded of striking 5s similarities. Chances are they’ll notice them themselves.
It’s thus wise to either stress the compact handheld’s under-the-hood resemblance to the 6s generation, or suggest this is something entirely new, even though it really isn’t. At the end of the day, iPhone SE makes sense and it has a nice ring to it, albeit it’s unclear what it might mean. Special Edition? Special Enhanced? Super Electric?
No matter, what it matters is we have fresh proof backing the name. The somewhat sketchy kind, but relatively trustworthy, as it looks cropped from an official spec sheet. Unfortunately, the only other thing the purported “leak” reveals is storage options will start with a traditional 16GB.
We know, we know, you hoped Apple would discard the primitive ROM configuration and reinstate 32 gigs, but it’s way more likely you’ll be obligated to choose between 16 and 64GB. Don’t be sad, as there are plenty of high-end features to look forward to, including an A9 processor, 12MP rear camera with 4K video recording capabilities, Touch ID sensor, and Apple Pay support.
