Apple officially removed the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus duo from the business portfolio to make way for the new iPhone SE.

Information about the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus has been removed on Apple's sales list. Thus, the models launched from 2018 and before have been "killed". Currently iPhone X (2017), XS, XS Max, XR (2018) have all stopped production.

According to Phonearena , stopping the three-year-old iPhone duo business is not so surprising and has been anticipated. Apple just launched the new iPhone SE, if holding this device, both can compete, causing disadvantages for genuine.

The new iPhone SE is not too different in appearance from the iPhone 8, while the configuration is stronger and the price is cheaper. 

The iPhone 8 currently runs on the A11 Bionic chip, 2 GB RAM, and starts at $ 449. Meanwhile, the new iPhone SE is equipped with the A13 Bionic chip as on the iPhone 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max and a range of upgraded features such as fast charging, Wi-Fi 6 support and Gigabit LTE connectivity, 2 sim and lower price, 399 USD. Thus, even when sold, the iPhone 8 cannot compete with newer devices.
However, the death of Apple iPhone 8 Plus may be bad news for those who love the old iPhone design and 5.5 inch screen. 

They are forced to choose newer models with appropriate screen sizes or stick with old devices.

The iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus, launched three years ago, have 4.7-inch screens (720 x 1,280 pixels) and 5.5 inches (1,080 x 1,920 pixels) respectively, using Retina panels with True Tone Display technology. 

The iPhone 8 uses a single 12-megapixel camera, while the iPhone 8 Plus comes with a standard dual and telephoto camera with a 12-megapixel resolution. When launched, the duo started at $ 699 and $ 799 respectively.

iPhone SE version 2020 has just been announced by Apple on the evening of April 15 with the same name as the model launched in 2016. The device is only 4.7 inches in size, using LCD panels instead of OLEDs like the new iPhones, 12-megapixel single cameras, cost $ 399, $ 499 and $ 549 for 64, 128, and 256 GB versions.
