If you’ve been hankering for a new iPhone that has all the power of the latest generations but fits in your hand like the old models, today is a good day for you.
The phone has a 4-inch display and the same general dimensions as the iPhone 5s. Truth be told, the iPhone SE looks verging on indistinguishable in outline to the iPhone 5s, including the chamfered, more honed edges of the gadget. The only difference is that those edges will be finished in matte, unlike the iPhone 5s.
The phone will come in space grey, silver, gold and rose gold.
That said, the iPhone SE has very different innards than the iPhone 5s.
The new, littler model will incorporate a NFC chip for Apple Pay, nearby the much-speedier A9 processor and M9 movement co-processor. This suggests the phone will see speeds like the iPhone 6s, and will moreover be equipped with reliably on “Hey Siri” convenience.
Apple also said that it has been able to reach LTE speeds that are 50 percent faster than previous generations.
The camera will also see upgrades, with a 12-megapixel sensor and the ability to capture 4K video. This is the same camera you’ve seen on the iPhone 6s and 6s Plus.
With that camera comes the ability to capture and view Live Photos, Apple’s GIF-style feature that captures a couple seconds of video before and after the picture is taken to result in a moving, video-like final product.
Bits of gossip proposed that the new iPhone wouldn’t have the front-confronting streak capacity we’ve seen on the iPhone 6s. That, in any case, is mixed up. Apple has incorporated that same LED usefulness in the SE, which means you can take selfies in the right lighting conditions with the littler model.
No 3D Touch
Sources told 9to5Mac that the reason behind this is that the front-facing flash requires the new display tech we’ve seen on the iPhone 6s, which brings us to 3D touch.
The flagship feature on the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus, which offers deeper interaction with various applications on the iPhone through hard taps and long taps, will not be present on the iPhone SE.
iOS 9.2 comes out today, and will ship with the little iPhone SE. It joins Night Mode, which changes the shading and sparkle of the showcase to better suit your eyes around evening time/night and at a youthful hour in the morning. It will also include password-protected (TouchID) Notes, app suggestions in Health and more customized News.
Car Play has also gotten integration from many more car makers.
