A beloved design with 4.7 “display

iPhone SE has an aerospace aluminum design and durable glass with a completely black front side, and is available in black, white and (PRODUCT) RED. The finish of the rear glass with the Apple logo in the center is the result of a seven-layer coloring process that allows you to obtain rich and deep hues, precise shades and optimal opacity, and the tone-on-tone aluminum profile perfectly matches the glass . It resists splashes and dust, with an IP67 grade water resistance rating , up to 1 meter deep for 30 minutes.

The 4.7 ″ Retina HD display with True Tone adjusts the white balance based on ambient light to give the screen a more natural, paper-like brightness. It has a wide color range that returns incredibly faithful colors and is compatible with Dolby Vision and HDR10 content . iPhone SE uses touch with haptic feedback to give access to quick actions, such as animating a Live Photo, previewing a message, rearranging apps and much more, and to open context menus.

iPhone SE also incorporates the Home button , with a sapphire crystal design to make it resistant and protect the sensor, and a steel ring to detect the user’s fingerprint for the Touch ID. Using the Touch ID is a convenient, safe and easy way to unlock the iPhone without typing the code, enter a password using the iCloud Keychain, access the apps, authorize purchases on the App Store and pay with Apple Pay.

A13 Bionic, the fastest chip on a smartphone

The A13 Bionic chip, introduced with iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro, is the fastest ever seen on a smartphone and offers unprecedented performance for everything users do with iPhone SE. Ideal for photography, video games and augmented reality experiences, the A13 Bionic chip makes everything smoother.

Apple created the A13 Bionic chip focusing on machine learning: it has an 8-core Neural Engine capable of processing five thousand billion operations per second, two accelerators for machine learning on the CPU and a new ML controller, to balance performance and efficiency . Together, the A13 Bionic chip and iOS 13 pave the way for new smart apps that use machine learning and Core ML.

Built to be efficient, the A13 Bionic chip also allows great autonomy in the iPhone SE. iPhone SE supports wireless charging with Qi-certified chargers and is also compatible with fast charging, which allows you to charge the battery up to 50% in just 30 minutes.2 Wi-Fi 6 and LTE Gigabit-class connections offer speeds of extraordinary downloads.3 And dual SIM with eSIM allows you to have two phone numbers on one device, for example when traveling abroad or need a dedicated number for work.

New photographic experience allowed by the A13 Bionic chip

With a 12MP wide angle and f / 1.8 aperture diaphragm, iPhone SE has the best single camera system ever seen on an iPhone. The ISP processor and the Neural Engine of the A13 Bionic chip allow you to take advantage of the advantages of computational photography, such as Portrait mode, all six effects Portrait lighting and Depth control. And thanks to machine learning and monocular depth estimation, beautiful portraits can also be taken with the front camera. iPhone SE offers the new generation Smart HDR , which recognizes people in the frame and changes the lighting to return more natural images, with incredible details of light and shadow.

Users can shoot even more immersive videos thanks to stereo audio recording and cinema-quality video stabilization available on both cameras. The rear camera records 4K videos up to 60 fps , and the extended dynamic range of up to 30 fps produces more detailed shots in the illuminated parts. Customers can also use QuickTake videos on both cameras, to record movies without leaving Photo mode.

Thanks to the advanced functions of the Camera and Photo apps in iOS 13, native editing is even more complete and intuitive, and includes powerful tools previously available only for photo editing.
