Apple announced iPhone SE, the company’s first 4-inch Smartphone since iPhone 5S. But, have you been thinking about what SE stands for? Many experts and techy geeks have already come up with their own versions of answers such as Smaller Experience, Super Encrypted and Second Edition.
What does SE in iPhone SE stand for?
I guess we have an answer now. Phil Schiller, marketing chief at Apple revealed that SE stands for Special Edition. Although it is a small size Smartphone when compared to its predecessors, it really is a special edition Smartphone with upgraded hardware specifications.
