Gruber and the iPhone SE…

“Apple was never going to call this phone the “5 SE”. I don’t know where Gurman got that, but that was never going to happen. Why would Apple give a new phone a name that makes it sound old?”

Daring Fireball: 9to5Mac: ‘Apple Likely to Drop the “5”, Call New 4-Inch Model the “iPhone SE”‘

I don’t get why everyone, including Gruber, seem to be missing.

  • SE = Sports Edition.
  • Now all the predictions of waterproofing make sense.
  • Now it being smaller makes even more sense.
  • This would be a good moment to remove the earphone jack and have bluetooth only for sports.
  • Finally, it doesn’t compete with the other phones. It’s a new market.

Or am I missing something?
