Why I'm not happy about Apple's rumoured new iPhone SE 4 design

Fans of Apple's smallest iPhone were in for a surprise last month when the company unceremoniously dumped the iPhone mini from its line up. Instead, the iPhone 14 comes in a 'Plus' variety that's bad news for anyone who prioritises pocketability. And our final flicker of hope might just have been snuffed out.

Many fans had hoped that Apple might be saving the mini form factor for the iPhone SE, which is currently sporting a frankly prehistoric design (that Home Button's been around since the 1920s, or something). But new rumours suggest the SE 4 will borrow an entirely different iPhone design. (Small hands? Check out the best iPhone 13 mini deals.)
