Apple iPhone SE

At a glance

  • It’s the most compact, pocket-friendly iPhone
  • Apple’s most affordable smartphone
  • Same excellent camera and features as the iPhone 6S

What does the iPhone SE offer?

The iPhone SE is billed as the most powerful four-inch phone ever. It's also been dubbed the cheapest iPhone ever. Both are bold claims. But they're not without foundation.

A successor to the similarly compact, now-discontinued iPhone 5c, the iPhone SE is a major improvement. And not just because it swaps the iPhone 5c's plastic exterior for a premium metal and aluminium construction.

Better camera

Highlights include a 12-megapixel camera, with a LivePhotos feature that captures motion before and after your photo to help bring your snaps to life. And it records video in lush 4K too, which is four times the resolution of standard HD for clearer, crisper footage.

Apple Pay

Like the more costly iPhone 6s, the iPhone SE is equipped with Apple Pay. That means you can use it to pay for goods and services by swiping it over a reader in shops and restaurants. To keep your details secure, it's also got what Apple calls a Touch ID home button. This means your iPhone se can only be unlocked by your fingerprint.

More power

Powering the iPhone SE is the same powerful A9 processor as the iPhone 6s. The result is that it operates with a real sense of 'zip' and can handle the most advanced games and applications.

To take some of the strain when you're multi-tasking, there's an M9 motion-tracking co-processor on board too, which is what helps the onboard Health fitness app to accurately track the amount of steps you've taken and the distance you've run.

Siri

Other features include a more advanced version of Siri voice commands app that makes it easier to control your phone just by using your voice and a better front-facing camera for video calls in HD and superior selfies.

New software features

As with the entire iPhone range, the iPhone SE also offers the smartphone market's widest choice of apps and games. Powered by the iOS 9.3 version of Apple's operating system, this easy-to-use compact smartphone features the Night Shift app that limits exposure to blue light from your screen to help you sleep, as well as a more secure version of the Notes note-taking app.
