Since the release of the so-far-latest iPhone SE, also known as iPhone SE 3 and iPhone SE, enthusiasts have eagerly been awaiting the next model rumoured to be in the works. 

Cost effectiveness is something which has crucially played the key role in bringing global acclaim to the iPhone SE series, as budget-bound individuals can easily grab them under $500, with top-notch processor, durability and wireless charging support. 

With the reportedly upcoming iPhone SE 4 being the talk of the town, rumours are suggesting at its potential launch next year.

While there's so much on the cards for iPhone SE 4, a few properties that appear to be certain include a new and more modern design, and a handy size. 

iPhone SE 4 release date

As Apple has not disclosed when or if a latest iteration of the iPhone SE is coming or not, the only option we're left with to determine the release schedule is that of looking at previously followed timelines. Have a look at them below.

  • Apple iPhone SE: March 21, 2016
  • Apple iPhone SE 2020: April 15, 2020
  • Apple iPhone SE 2022: March 8, 2022

Considering the timeline Apple opted for the earlier iPhone SE releases, it won't be wrong to speculate that the iPhone SE 4 will be launched in March 2025 or April 2025.

This release schedule has been corroborated by Ming-Chi Kuo, a reliable analyst and a Korean publication named The Elec earlier this year, with the former sources claiming the iPhone SE 4 not to be a part of Apple’s plans for 2024 or 2025, and the latter being of the view that mass production of the iPhone SE 4 is delayed by a year to 2025.

Whichever tip we go with, it has been clarified that Apple, most likely, is not going to launch the iPhone SE (4th generation) this year.
