Kid Devices

Dear Apple,

What happened to the iPhone SE? Why did you take away the best "kid iPhone" out there? I don't want to buy my kids an expensive phone (currently your cheapest phone is a $450 iPhone 7).

You have iPad Minis, which are perfect. Why would you stop making an iPhone that fits this niche ? You make inexpensive Mac Minis that are excellent. Why would you take this iPhone mini away? Please bring back something for the kids.
