What the “SE” in iPhone SE means — or why, seriously, stop the letters and numbers crap
- The iPhone 6c
- The iPhone 7c
- The iPhone 5e
- The iPhone 5se
So, what do the two letters stand for? Well, they stand for “Special Edition.” That’s what Apple’s SVP of marketing Phil Schiller told the FORTUNE’s Jason Cipriani. Schiller says it’s a throwback to 1987’s Macintosh SE, at least in terms of nomenclature.
