Wait If You Want the Best Software Support
If you plan on keeping your next iPhone for a long time you might want to think about waiting for the next version of the iPhone SE.
If you're the kind of person that typically waits three, four, five years to upgrade your phone, the rumored iPhone SE 2 has a lot of appeal.
Apple probably won't advertise it as one of the key features, but the device will almost certainly get at least four plus years of software support.
Software support includes major OS upgrades with new features and it also means a constant stream of bug fixes and important security patches.
While it might be tempting to go with another 4-inch model like the current iPhone SE, its software support will come to an end much sooner.
The iPhone SE got Apple's iOS 13 update and it looks like the device is under consideration for iOS 14 though nothing is guaranteed beyond iOS 13.
The iPhone SE 2's hardware also ensures that the device will get a robust version of iOS 14. iOS updates for older phones are limited because of hardware limitations.
If you plan on keeping your next phone for several years and you love getting the latest features, fixes, and patches, think about waiting.
