iPhone SE models and pricingThere are two iPhone SE models: 16GB and 64GB. Without a two-year contract, the 16GB model costs $399 and the 64GB model costs $499. The iPhone SE will be sold direct from Apple and carrier locations. Each carrier offers a plan where you pay no money up front but instead pay for the phone over time, such as AT&T Next.
Here's what we know so far:
- AT&T is the only carrier at the time of this writing with pricing information for its monthly payment plan for the iPhone SE. With AT&T Next, you pay a $15 activation fee and $13.30 per month for 30 months, $16.63 per month for 24 months or $19.95 per month for 20 months for the 16GB iPhone SE. You can upgrade to a new iPhone for free after 24 months with the 30-month plan, after 18 months with the 24-month plan, and 12 months with the 20-month plan.
- Apple is not offering its iPhone Upgrade Program for the iPhone SE. iPhone Upgrade Program is only available for the iPhone 6S and 6S Plus.
- Contract-free plans through Sprint Forever, T-Mobile Jump and Verizon Device Payment are not yet available. We'll update this post when they are.
Fewer carriers offer two-year contractsSprint and Verizon will sell the iPhone SE for no money down with a two-year contract. AT&T and T-Mobile, however, have both done away with two-year contract plans -- you'll have to pay the full price upfront or opt for a payment plan.
