As it turns out, making a new 4-inch smartphone was actually a brilliant move on Apple’s part. It’s new iPhone SE is sold out in many stores across the US, and shipping estimates have slipped into the end of April.
As first pointed out by Apple Insider, the SE is widely unavailable in Apple stores and the earliest delivery date is April 20. That’s a solid two weeks away — if you’re lucky. Of course, carriers may have stock, but that’s only good if you want to play the subsidy game. Should you want to buy a phone outright, it’s a tougher proposition.
