On Tuesday, 8th March, at the special “Peek Performance” Spring Apple Event, Apple officially introduced the new iPhone SE 3rd-generation with ground-breaking features.
From the very beginning, Apple designed the special edition iPhone to include some of the most advanced features and technologies, while delivering the iPhone experience at an incredible price, which is important for existing Apple fans who want a smaller iPhone and a great value.
It is also been an incredibly popular model among new iPhone customers and considering this, Apple continues to add new users to the iPhone at a faster pace. And today, with the new iPhone SE 3rd-generation.
The Classic iPhone Design
Alongside incredible performance, the new iPhone SE is also looking beautiful in the classic iPhone design. It features iconic glass and aluminum in three of the most liked colorways – Midnight, Starlight, and PRODUCT (RED).
It has a 4.7-inch Retina HD display with incredible color accuracy. The display is even more protected by the durable design, which now includes the toughest glass in a smartphone on both the front and back.
This is the same glass as the back of the iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Pro and with the IP67 dust and water-resistant rating, the new affordable iPhone is designed to last. iPhone SE has the most-preferable Touch ID for a secure, private, and easy way to unlock your iPhone, fill in passcodes, and make purchases with Apple Pay.
The new iPhone SE 3rd-generation has an even better battery life that can run up to 2 hours more than its predecessor with the efficiency of A15 Bionic, integration with iOS, Apple’s latest battery chemistry, and internal design updates.
Top Class Performance on a Smartphone
At the heart of the iPhone SE 3rd-generation is the A15 Bionic, the same chip as in the entire iPhone 13 lineup that makes nearly every experience better, from simple things like launching apps and scrolling through photos to intense workloads like processing depth information of an image.
A15 Bionic packs a powerful 6-core CPU to handle demanding tasks smoothly and efficiently. It’s up to 1.8x faster than iPhone 8. This CPU is faster than all the competition at any price.
The 4-core GPU is great for graphics-intensive use cases and delivers monumental improvement for people upgrading. Apps can take advantage of the 16-core Neural Engine that is perfect for machine learning tasks and is capable of 15.8 trillion operations per second, which is 26x faster than the iPhone 8.
5G on iPhone SE for the First Time
For the very first time, Apple is bringing the world’s fastest connectivity – 5G to its most affordable iPhone so that it can take an advantage of the latest generation of network technology. You get super fast downloads and uploads, lower latency, and better experiences in more places.
Engaging with friends and family on high-quality FaceTime HD calls or enjoying your favorite movies with friends using SharePlay or playing multi-player online games, the iPhone SE 3rd-generation delivers uninterpreted connecting experiences.
The iPhone SE 3rd-generation also has some of Apple’s latest camera innovations. The 12MP camera and A15 Bionic create a new camera system that enables powerful computational photography. Deep fusion optimizes for texture and detail in every part of the photo, Smart HDR 4 applies individual adjustments for color, contrast, noise to a subject, and the background.
The Photographic Styles brings your preferred style automatically to the image pipeline during capture, while preserving skin tones. The ISP in the powerful processor improves the video quality for truer skin tones and reduces noise, especially in low light.
Integration with iOS 15
The new budget-friendly iPhone SE 3rd-generation comes with all the incredible benefits of iOS 15, including new features like Focus to help reduce distraction to be in the moment and an all-new Maps experience.
You will get intelligent capabilities that protect your privacy, like on-device Siri and on-device dictation and the newly-released iPhone will get the latest iOS for years to come.
The 3rd-generation SE continues Apple’s commitment to minimize the impact on the environment. Like the newest iPhone 13 lineup, Apple eliminated outer plastic wrap and charger from the packaging.
The Cupertino company used recycled materials in the design of the later iPhone SE, like Taptic Engine use 100% recycled rare earth elements and 100% recycled tungsten.
