Apple on Tuesday unveiled its latest slate of flagship phones: the iPhone 13, Mini, Pro and Pro Max (here's how the iPhone 13 variants compare). With the new launch, some of the company's older phones got lower prices and others are no longer being sold by the tech giant. 

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