Does the order in which we write the galvanic cell components matter? More specifically, is there a reason why I2(s) is in the third position in the given answer, which is Pt(s) | I-(aq) | I2(s) || Ce4+(aq), Ce3+(aq) | Pt(s) ?

The correct way to write it would be for each side, to have reactants, then products. This is why I2(s) is in the third position.

Does that mean that we prioritize putting it in the order of reactants to products before we consider the phases? I thought that we had to put aq closest to the salt bridge and solids on the outside.
