Apple Introduces The Second-Generation iPhone SE

Back due to popular demand, the most affordable iPhone now has the smartest chip in a smartphone.

It’s business as usual over at Apple. But this is the first time since 2016 that Apple announced a new iPhone outside of September. The California headquartered tech giant just announced its second-generation iPhone SE, featuring a 4.7–inch Retina HD display, thick bezels and home button paired with Touch ID.

Apple’s popular first-gen iPhone SE was discontinued in September 2018 and fans of small affordable handsets have been asking for a replacement ever since. Though the iPhone SE is not that small, it utilizes Apple’s new A13 Bionic processor, the same one found in the latest iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro. Design wise, the iPhone SE boasts a revamped iPhone 8-like design and is made of glass and aluminum.

Like its predecessor, the iPhone SE features a single camera on the front and a 12 megapixel wide-angle camera on the back. With the help of the A13 Bionic processor, the rear camera has Smart HDR capabilities for detailed shots while the front camera utilizes Portrait Mode and Portrait Lighting effects. It can also shoot 4K video at 60fps with slow-motion, time-lapse and cinematic video stabilization on both camera. How about its battery life? The iPhone SE is built for efficiency and the A13 enables great battery life. It has wireless-charging capable with Qi-certified chargers and supports fast-charging, able to reach 50 percent charge in just 30 minutes.

The new SE generation is available in 64GB, 128GB and 256GB models in three colors; black, white and red. Pricing starts at USD399 and the phone is available for pre-order on and ready to buy from Friday, April 24.
