Apple has released the all-new iPhone SE – available in black, white, and red. What makes the newest Apple drop unique and worth checking out? In terms of aesthetics, the iPhone SE comes with an aerospace-grade aluminium and durable glass design as well as an all-black front. A centred Apple logo is included in the finish of the rear glass, which is made using a seven-layer colour process. This helps to deliver rich depth of colour with a colour-matched aluminium band. The phone is water-resistant up to one metre for 30 minutes, and dust-resistant. As for the display, the iPhone SE is equipped with a 4.7-inch retina high-definition display with true tone. Benefits include a more adjusted white balance which matches the ambient light for a more natural and paper-like viewing experience. Designed with sapphire crystal to be durable, the iPhone SE features the home button that everyone's familiar with. 9 reasons why the iPhone 11 is better than an 11 Pro Another feature of the new iPhone SE is that it comes with the fastest chip ever in a smartphone – the A13 bionic. This means that no matter the task required of the smartphone – photography, gaming, augmented reality experiences – users get unparalleled performance. The keyword here is fluidity. The A13 bionic chip was first introduced with iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro. The battery life on the iPhone SE benefits massively from the A13. In 30 minutes, you will get up to 50 per cent charge. The camera is one of the most important features on a smartphone, of course. Also powered by the A13 bionic chip, the iPhone SE is said to have the best single-camera system ever in an iPhone – with a 12-megapixel wide camera. The iPhone SE comes with iOS 13. The iPhone SE is available in black, white, and red, and with 64 gigabyte, 128 gigabyte and 256 gigabyte models available. Starting from US$457, a portion of the proceeds from iPhone SE red purchases will go directly to Global Fund's Covid-19 Response and HIV/Aids grants. Pre-orders began on April 17.
