Before Apple's recent announcement, the iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Mini, iPhone 12 Pro, iPhone 12 Pro Max, iPhone 11 and iPhone XR were available for purchase through Apple's website. The second generation of the budget-friendly iPhone SE, which was unveiled in the spring of 2020, was also available. 

Following Apple's event on Sept. 14, the company removed several older iPhones from its online store, including the 256GB iPhone SE. The change was first spotted by MacRumors, which reported that the highest storage option for the iPhone SE has been discontinued.
