According to sources who spoke with 9to5Mac, the incoming iPhone SE will not be a smaller iPhone 6 — at least aesthetically.
It seems there will be some holdovers from both the iPhone 5s and 6 in the SE, though. The overall dimensions are said to be the same as the iPhone 5s, but the curved edges won’t be shiny.
The cover glass may be rounded at the edges, but it seems the curvature is so slight it’s indistinguishable. Other components of the SE’s hardware — like the headphone jack, power button and volume buttons — will be just as you find them on the iPhone 5s.

A new family of Apple iOS malware that has begun affecting users in China is another reminder of why it is generally not a good idea to jailbreak your iPhone or to download pirated software from unofficial mobile app stores.
In its final court filing before oral arguments scheduled for next week, Apple argued that the government’s interpretation of an obscure 18th-Century law goes too far, and it should not be able to authorize the forced creation of a customized iOS firmware to aid in the opening of a seized iPhone linked to a 2015 terrorist attack.
In a Tuesday call with reporters, Apple lawyers said that this case is serious and has profound implications. The company largely re-iterated many of its previous arguments in earlier filings, ending with this conclusion:
SURPRISE, SURPRISE. Apple has announced that it will hold an event on 21 March at which we'll no doubt see the launch of the iPhone 5SE, a new iPad Pro and new Apple Watch models.
The invitation is typically mysterious. 'Let me loop you in,' it reads, which is perhaps a nod at the new Apple Watch bands expected at the event, while the colour scheme could also be a hint that the rumoured iPhone 5SE will be available in the same colours as the iPhone 6S.
The highest court in the US has told the fruity cargo cult that Steve Jobs really was a monopolist who set up price cartel and it is going to have to deal with the consequences of his actions.
The Supreme Court officially declined to hear Apple challenge to an appellate court decision that it conspired with five publishers to increase e-book prices, meaning it will have to pay $450 million as part of a settlement.
