Now that the official iPhone SE of 2020, Apple has decided to bring the iPhone 8 out of the catalog. First of all: yes, the company was still selling the iPhone.iPhone 8 and 8 Plus, until today. Second, this operation justified by the fact that the new iPhone SE basically an iPhone 8 with the latest A13 chipset, a better photographic compartment, and slightly different color options. It really doesn't make sense for the company to keep both devices competing against each other among its products for sale.
iPhone 8 and 8 Plus
Apple presented iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus along with iPhone X in September 2017. Key features included a glass back design with rwireless charging, better water resistance e updated cameras. Apple has also stopped selling the Plus model, but the situation in this case is a little more complicated than it seems. The situation is different 8 Plus since there is no Plus model with a 5.5 ? screen.
NB: Like I said in the video, the iPhone 8 is being * replaced * by the iPhone SE.
The iPhone 8 Plus will * still be sold * through channel partners. For now.
(Because no iPhone SE Plus. For now?) Https://t.co/qv7LhCy2Ly

As we can see from Rene Ritchie's Twitter, even if you can no longer buy an iPhone 8 Plus directly from Apple, there is no (for now?) A new "iPhone SE Plus 2020"Which can replace the previous model. So apparently the company is still allowing some of its people sales partner to continue to offer the Plus model. We don't know how long, for.
It would certainly have been interesting to see a iPhone SE Plus arrive next to the iPhone SE (2020), with the same type of chip update inside. We still don't know that the Cupertino house is also developing the Plus model. According to some, the company is trying to convince fans of the bigger phones to choose its iPhone 11.
