Apple's new four-inch iPhone has gone on sale in Ireland on Apple's online store with a starting price of €499.

The SE, which has replaced the iPhone 5S in Apple's line-up and bears a striking resemblance to its predecessor, and is due to arrive in stores today but there have been some reports of delays.

Apple unveiled the new phone, which bucks the trend of increasing screen sizes, at an event in California in March.
