Apple iPhone SE (3rd generation): What’s new?
You can read about the differences between the new and last-gen budget models in our full iPhone SE (2022) v iPhone SE (2020) comparison, but there are a few key features to know about if you just want the headlines.
The most notable change is the inclusion of the A15 Bionic chipset, which should provide a much-improved experience in terms of speed.
This more efficient processor should help the battery life, too, which is good news, as the iPhone SE (2022) will support 5G.
For those interested in the camera improvements, Apple indicates that the system is new but will feature the same lens. It now adopts a 12-megapixel sensor (f/1.8) with Smart HDR4 functionality.
