Supposed iPhone SE packaging leak points to Apple Pay support

A photo, supposedly of packaging for the iPhone SE, has appeared online. If accurate, the image show that Apple's new phone, unsurprisingly, will have a 16GB storage option. The packaging also says that the phone will come with NFC, likely indicating Apple Pay support.

The image comes from Chinese social network Sina Weibo (via MacRumors):

As always, take this leak with a grain of salt, and remember that nothing is official until Apple announces it. However, this leak, such as it is, lines up with previous reports about the new four-inch phone.

The iPhone SE is expected to be announced next week at Apple's "Let Us Keep You In the Loop" event. It will reportedly have an Apple A9 system-on-a-chip, along with other iPhone 6s-class internal hardware. iMore will be there live to bring you the latest new on the iPhone SE and any other announcements Apple makes next week.

  • The picture is fake. Apple doesn't put all that writing on the back of phones now.
  • But that's not on the back of the phone, that is on the packaging. Interesting though.
  • Agreed
  • Am I the only one who still thinks that the iPhone SE name ******* reeks?
  • Well, it's better than iPhone [number] SE.
  • Soooo happy they're sticking with 16gb. Sent from the iMore App
  • 16 gig storage is embarrassing at this point.
  • Does Apple listen to customer complaints? 16 GB today is too little.They should think over this.Atleast, If, it came in 32GB or just 64GB variants.The other fact to note here is that: this product is expensive.
  • Of course the product is expensive, it's Apple. I don't know why people always come on here expecting Apple to make something that's cheap
  • 16gb is usable, it's not difficult to manage it. For some, yes. For others, not so much. I am someone who always has photos backed up to the cloud, I don't install a lot of apps either (Pretty sure that I have less than 20), and I stream my music.
    Speaking of photos, I always remember to clean the recently deleted folder. I'm just an oddball about having my devices in order so it works for me just fine.
