At the heart of iPhone SE you’ll find the same super-powerful A15 Bionic chip that’s in iPhone 13. A15 Bionic enhances nearly everything you do. Apps load in a flash and feel so fluid. You get incredibly smooth graphics performance for gaming. A15 Bionic even powers advanced photography features that make each part of your photo — faces, places, everything — look fabulous.
Big-time battery life.
A highly efficient chip, an enhanced battery and iOS 15 work together to boost battery life. When you do need to charge, just place iPhone SE on a wireless charger. Or connect a 20W or higher adapter to fast-charge from zero to up to 50 per cent in 30 minutes flat.1
Faster downloads. Faster streaming. Faster gaming. Less lag. More fun.
From livestreaming to multiplayer gaming to video sharing, 5G really speeds things up. It even makes FaceTime in high definition and SharePlay feel smooth and seamless when you’re on the go. When you don’t need all that speed, iPhone SE shifts into Smart Data mode to preserve battery life. With the power of A15 Bionic and a fast 5G connection, you’re set up for years to come.
Cool with stumbles.
Thanks to a durable design and the toughest glass in a smartphone.
Thanks to incredible water resistance.
iPhone SE shrugs off spills from common liquids such as water, coffee, tea and juice. And it’s certainly not bothered by a little dust either.
A camera you’ll instantly click with.
Smart stuff happens between snap and shot.
The A15 Bionic chip does all kinds of computations behind the scenes to make your photos look great. For example, Smart HDR 4 automatically refines the contrast, lighting and skin tones for up to four people — so everyone looks their best. And in mid to low light, Deep Fusion studies multiple exposures pixel by pixel to capture the subtlest details, textures and patterns in your final shot.
Set your look once. Get it every time.
Give your camera direction with Photographic Styles. Choose a look — such as Warm or Cool — and iPhone SE selectively applies the adjustments, keeping skies and skin tones natural. So your photos will automatically have the look you love.
Portrait mode draws attention to your subject by artfully blurring the background.
Portrait Lighting lets you choose from six creative effects, like Stage Light or High-Key Light Mono, before or after you shoot.
Low-light scenes. Just-right videos.
Go ahead, keep the camera rolling. The enhanced video on iPhone SE picks up an incredible amount of detail — including contours, shadows and highlights — even when the sun goes down.
The Home button you know and love.
Touch ID is a fast, simple and secure way to unlock your phone and sign in to apps. You can even use it with Apple Pay to do things like buy gifts online or go shopping at the supermarket — all without reaching for your card.
Privacy is built in
iPhone helps put you in control of your personal information. For example, when you’re browsing, Safari intelligently helps block trackers from profiling you and shows you which ones have been blocked in your Privacy Report. And the list goes on.
iOS 15. Powerful features for you and future you.
Share movies, music or whatever’s on your screen in FaceTime. Tap text in an image to quickly send email, make calls or get directions. And with ongoing feature and security updates, iPhone keeps getting even better — so it feels new again and again.
Lighter on the planet.
Our stores, offices and data centres are already carbon neutral. By 2030 our products — and your carbon footprint from using them — will be too. iPhone SE now uses 100 per cent recycled rare earth elements for its Taptic Engine and audio magnets. We’ve also eliminated the plastic wrapping around the box.
