The new phone features Apple’s latest microchip – the A13 Bionic – as well as a single rear camera and a 4.7in Retina HD display.
Unlike current Apple flagship phones, the new SE also features a Home button and Apple’s Touch ID fingerprint sensor. Here is everything you need to know:
iPhone SE release date
The new iPhone SE will go on sale online from April 17. Customers will be able to order it directly from Apple as well as through phone networks.
The phone will be released on April 24.
iPhone SE price
The iPhone SE is the cheapest iPhone which Apple sells. It’s available for £419 for the 64GB model, £469 for the 128GB model and £569 for the 256GB model.
iPhone SE features
Apple’s latest iPhone includes a physical Home button and fingerprint sensor rather than the Face ID system found in newer iPhones.
It has the latest A13 Bionic chip also found in the iPhone 11 Pro, meaning it will be capable of running the latest apps without any lag.
iPhone SE colours
The new iPhone SE is available in three colours: Black, white and red. Apple will donate money to charity for every red iPhone SE sold.
iPhone SE screen
Apple has kept to a 4.7-inch screen size for the updated iPhone SE, meaning it has a smaller screen than the 5.8-inch screen on the latest flagship iPhone.
The updated iPhone SE has what Apple calls a Retina HD screen which includes True Tone colours to make images display more accurately.
The screen also includes haptic feedback, meaning firmer presses on the iPhone SE’s screen will register differently and the phone can give vibrating feedback.
iPhone SE camera
Apple’s cheapest iPhone has a single-camera set-up on the rear, rather than the triple-lens rear camera in the iPhone 11 Pro.
The iPhone SE has a 12-megapixel rear camera which allows people to use its Portrait Mode feature. It can also take 4K videos in 60 frames-per-second.
What about streaming services?
The new SE will come bundled with a one free year of the streaming television service, similar to Apple’s flagship devices released last autumn.
Apple said in January that it had 1.5 billion active installed devices and 480 million subscribers to both its own and third-party paid services, compared with 1.4 billion devices and 360 million subscribers a year earlier. The company also set out a goal to reach 600 million paid subscribers by the end of calendar 2020.
