It’s that time of year again — Apple is hosting a keynote in Cupertino, and the whole tech world is looking to the tech geniuses to set yet another benchmark. To no one’s surprise, Apple has done just that with the latest iteration of its affordable line of mobile options, the iPhone SE. By implementing a surfeit of the features the brand offers across its trio of more premium iPhone 13s, Apple ensures that its newest affordable small-scale smartphone option is nothing to scoff at.
From a cosmetic standpoint, this is by far the most stunning rendition of the SE that the conglomerate has released to date. It boasts a 4.7″ display and is then rounded out with sturdy glass and aerospace-grade aluminum composition, the former of which is akin to the one that appears on iPhone 13 and its Pro models. Rated IP67 for dust and water resistance, it’s clear that longevity is the name of the game with this new release from Apple.
While its sleek frame is alluring in its own right, the power that the SE possesses is remarkable whether you account for its size or not. Powered by the 6-core CPU-equipped A15 Bionic smartphone chip, this is practically just a mini rendition of Apple’s most recent premium smartphone. Another major standout feature is its implementation of 5G, offering owners the opportunity to scour the web and download files at lightning speeds without having to pay an exorbitant amount for it.
Needless to say, these are all features you may have already grown accustomed to if you’ve purchased one of the more recent iPhones, but it’s also safe to assume that made for a bigger dent in your wallet. The newest iPhone SE’s starting price is $429, meaning you’re getting a whole lot of premium specs normally associated with four-figure price tags. Apple’s latest iPhone SE will be available to pre-order in a trio of colors beginning March 11th and is set to release the following week.
