Apple has confirmed the rumours by launching an updated version of the iPhone SE that’s as fast as the iPhone 11 but much cheaper.
The new iPhone SE is based on the iPhone 8 and has a small 4.7-inch screen and the old TouchID fingerprint scanning Home button.
The iPhone SE has a starting price of £419, making it the cheapest phone Apple has brought out in the last four years.
Inside the SE is the same A13 Bionic chip as the new £1,049 iPhone 11 Pro. It’s also got wireless charging and the ability to shoot video at 4K resolution.
Battery life is the same as the iPhone 8 which equates to 13 hours of video playback and 40 hours of audio – according to Apple.
The new SE keeps the Lightning port on the bottom and also doesn’t have a headphone jack.
It runs Apple’s latest iOS 13 software and comes with a free year of Apple TV+ – which would normally cost £60.
‘The first iPhone SE was a hit with many customers who loved its unique combination of small size, high-end performance and affordable price; the new second-generation iPhone SE builds on that great idea and improves on it in every way — including our best-ever single-camera system for great photos and videos — while still being very affordable,’ said Phil Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Marketing.
‘iPhone SE features the industry-leading performance of A13 Bionic that enables great battery life, takes stunning Portrait mode and Smart HDR photos, shoots amazing videos with stereo audio, is great for games and super fast web surfing, and is built with the same industry-leading security features our customers expect. We can’t wait to get iPhone SE into customers’ hands.’
The iPhone SE comes in either Black, White and Product(RED). Apple confirmed that pre-orders will start on Friday with the phone shipping to customers on April 24.
