Apple just debuted three new iPhones, and apparently, that means three previous phones have to go to make room. As announced on stage today during the company’s keynote, the iPhone 6s, SE, and X from last year are all being discontinued. They’re being replaced by the new iPhone Xs, Xs Max, and Xr. Meanwhile, the iPhone 7, 7 Plus, 8, and 8 Plus will serve as cheaper options.
While two of the three phones mentioned are really beginning to age, it’s still a shame to see them go. The 6s and SE served as the last iPhones you could purchase with a headphone jack, therefore meaning the port is now absolutely obliterated from Apple’s smartphone lineup. Sure, you can buy one somewhere on the internet if you absolutely need a headphone jack, but if you’re looking to buy one directly from Apple, you’re out of luck.
For those wondering, the iPhone 7 now starts at $449 as the cheapest iPhone you can purchase. Meanwhile, the 8 takes things up to $599. As previously reported, the next step up is the Xr which starts at $749. The Xs costs $999 and the Xs Max costs $1099.
