Seems like there's an increasing amount of rumors to that effect, and the iPad Pro 2018 design also seemed to hint at it.

I think I've always preferred that boxy design over the iPhone 6/6S/7/8/SE 2020 look, and now the X/XS/11 look.

I do too. I really think the iPhone 4/4s/5/5s/SE design was just about perfect. Definitely my favorite era of models, design-wise. Never been a fan of the rounded, soft-edged iPhones..

The thing is, and I appreciate good design as much as anyone, but I know so few people who don't put their phone in a case. Size is much more important than design.

Why can't we have a small iPhone again!!

I think that ship has sailed. At this point, Apple couldn't launch such a phone even if they wanted to, because apps wouldn't work right.

(See how the 4S was on iOS 9: https://arstechnica.com/gadgets/2015...-nothing-more/)

I’m on an original SE and plan to keep using it until there’s a new small phone (so, forever). While I love the size and the look of the design, I have to say that it’s easier to pick up the curved edges of the 6-and-later phones from a table.

Yeah, Apple seems to be out of the small-screen business. That ship has indeed sailed. And, really, it isn't about the screen size as it is the body size. The only thing that might occur on that front, down the road, is if some future SE model is based around a 4.7"-ish display placed into a first-generation SE-sized body. I think that would satisfy so many...as large of a screen as possible within that compact, one-hand-friendly body design. That's the thing everyone really wants, right? And that's what the full-face design of the iPhone X-and-beyond allows for, so...

The unrealistic idiot in me spent much of 2019 hoping like hell that was going to be the SE 2.

But that's probably 3-4 years away, if at all. And my gut tells me that the only place it'll probably ever exist is as a prototype somewhere in an Apple lab (because you know they've worked that up by now). But maybe they'll surprise us and the third-generation SE could be something like that? Once all the flagships have gotten even bigger, pricier, fold-y, double-sided, six cameras, etc.

The reason why i don't like Iphones. They do not have new to launch. They just copy all the things from their previous sets.
