What's new with the iPhone SE
The iPhone SE is a compact, affordable model that has been updated with Apple's most powerful A13 Bionic chip, the same chip used in the iPhone 11 Pro. Alongside fast and fluid performance, Apple have included premium features like Portrait mode photography and Touch ID secure unlocking.
More power, better battery
iPhone SE is supercharged by Apple's fastest ever smartphone chip, the A13 Bionic also used in the iPhone 11 Pro. It works faster when you need it and conserves power when you don't. You'll get up to 13 hours of video on a single charge - if you need to give it a quick boost, it's also compatible with wireless chargers, or can be connected for an 18W fast charger (available separately) to go from zero to 50% in 30 minutes.
Design that makes a splash
There's a splash and water-resistant enclosure that protects against spills, splashes and dust. The Home button is completely reengineered, featuring a solid-state design with Touch ID Fingerprint sensor and haptic feedback. Constructed from aluminium and glass, the case is light but durable.
Crisp details and true to life colours
With a wide colour gamut, the screen delivers cinema-standard colours, meaning more shades of the spectrum can be used to create a vivid, vibrant image. What you see on the screen is a truer representation of your world, whether you're showing off holiday photos or shopping for the perfect present online. The Retina HD display integrates 3D touch, giving you more ways to interact with your apps.
With added optical image stabilisation, an f/1.8 aperture and six-element lens to make it even better at shooting photos and videos in low light. Up to 50% more light is captured by the camera sensor compared to previous models, while the Quad-LED True Tone flash adjusts to the colour temperature of the surroundings for sharper, better-lit photos.
The advanced camera system uses the powerful A13 chip to bring you Portrait mode, blurring the background of your shot to put the focus on the subject - it even works for selfies. Change the level of blur even after you've taken the photo. Next-generation Smart HDR can intelligently tailor the lighting and shadow detail.
Videos can be shot up to 4K, with Slo-mo support in 1080p and 720p HD. The front-facing 7MP camera allows you to Facetime at higher resolutions with wider colour capture for natural-looking skin tones.
The stereo speakers deliver 2x the audio output of previous generations, with increased dynamic range for better music, video and calls. The iPhone SE features a Lightning connector for your headphones.
