The upcoming iPhone is undoubtedly the most anticipated smartphone of the year, and rumours surrounding the smartphone have been too many. What’s more interesting this year, is that many conflicting reports are surfacing online making it impossible for us to speculate with ease. One thing seems almost certain though – the next iPhoneis set to break Apple’s tick tock cycle and be unveiled with minimal design changes. Because of these few changes, contradicting reports of the iPhone being called the iPhone 6SE are coming in. Today, we have two leaks in the form of retail box images and Geekbench scores that indicate the coming of the iPhone 6SE. Additionally, there is also a leak that reiterates the end of the 16GB storage variant.
The first one comes in the form of photographed pictures of the iPhone 6SE retail box. The images don’t seem to be photoshopped and show the retail box clearly with the iPhone 6SE branding. There is a separate leak of a Geekbench score of 5,210 in multi-core testing, and 3,042 in single-core testing. The image also shows the model number as iPhone 6SE. The man who leaked it also did the same test on iPhone 6s and scored 4,427 and 2,542 points respectively.
Furthermore, tipster Malignant has again instilled faith that the next iPhone will say goodbye to the 16GB base variant. Apple will instead slide in 32GB as the base storage variant, and apparently the 64GB will also be scrapped to make way for the 128GB mid-variant. The top variant will offer a new 256GB storage option.

Whatever the name be, the upcoming iPhone is said to have no 3.5mm audio jack, and the larger variant is tipped to sport a dual camera setup. Another feature that is on the see-saw is the Smart Connector, with too many conflicting reports to put a pin on one decision. Apple should have sent invites by now, but it clearly hasn’t so the rumoured September 23 availability could just be true.
