The SE in iPhone SE Stands For Special Edition, Says Phil Schiller

Since yesterday's Apple event, your thoughts have probably been consumed by a single, nagging concern: What the hell does SE stand for anyway? BGR points out that Jason Cipriani, who was at the Apple event yesterday, claims on Twitter that Apple VP Phil Schiller says the SE in iPhone SE stands for Special Edition:

Not Small Extremities. Not Same-old Engineering. Not some other joke about tiny hands or marketing tricks. But Special Edition.

Quite what makes it a Special Edition is unclear. What Apple will do when it has to update the model remains a mystery. But at least now you know.

    Seriously WTF? SE always stands for that. What sort of idiot would someone be to have an issue with that?

      SE doesn't always stand for "Special Edition". Windows 98 "SE" stood for Second Edition.

      It's also frequently Second Edition.

      really my car has SE on it.. who didn't know this ??? Geez !!

      IT SHOULD BE AN S.E.A Stupidly expensive in Australia !

    in the older gpus se was for synaptic error, same thing that must have happened when they decided to release this s**t edition

    So internally, it's iPhone 1 SE
    2017's updated iPhone will be called iPhone 2 SE.

    Nothing special about this edition. Still Expensive.
