The iPhone SE 3 rumours are flying, but we still don't want one

With its budget price and powerful specs, it's no surprise that the iPhone SE is a hugely popular device. But it isn't given a whole lot of love by Apple, and has only received one update in five years. New reports suggest that could all be about to change. But if you were hoping that the SE 3 would be in for a design refresh, prepare for disappointment. 

According to new rumours, the next iPhone SE will arrive by the end of March next year. While it's set to gain 5G capabilities, it will also retain the same design (which dates back to ye olde iPhone 6), complete with chunky bezels and, yep, the home button. And while some still love the old design, others would prefer to see a truly budget all-screen iPhone. Could an eight year-old design really stand a chance of hitting our best camera phones roundup?
