Apple's affordable iPhone SE is now more powerful and durable than ever
I’m a big fan of Apple’s iPhone and couldn’t imagine using a different handset, but you certainly pay for quality. If you can’t stretch to buying the iPhone 13 Pro, or even the regular iPhone, Apple has the budget iPhone SE, and now it’s even more powerful.
At its 'Peek performance' event today, Apple revealed the 5G iPhone SE which now comes with the A15 Bionic chip, better battery life, improved durability, and a new camera system.

The phone has a 4.7 inch screen with the same tough glass on the front and back found in the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13. It also has the Home button with Touch ID which used to be standard on Apple devices.
"iPhone SE has been an incredibly popular choice with our existing users and for new iPhone customers, thanks to its iconic design, exceptional performance, and affordable price. This year we’ve built the most powerful and durable iPhone SE yet, with better battery life thanks to A15 Bionic, the same chip as our iPhone 13 lineup that also unlocks advanced camera features like Smart HDR 4, Photographic Styles, and Deep Fusion," said Kaiann Drance, Apple’s vice president of Worldwide iPhone Product Marketing. "And with 5G, iPhone SE gives users faster downloads and uploads, higher quality video streaming, real-time interactivity in apps, and much more. Delivering the latest generation of technology and performance at this price is something only Apple can do."
iPhone SE comes in three colors -- midnight, starlight, and (PRODUCT)RED. iPhone SE will be available for pre-order this Friday, March 11, with availability beginning Friday, March 18.
Prices start from $429.
