iPhone SE 2022 vs. 2020: The Perks of Upgrading

Source: Cnet.com

The 2022 iPhone SE is here (and available for preorder). Apple’s new affordable iPhone made its debut at the company’s event last week, alongside the updated iPad Air. It’s a new-and-improved model of the last iPhone SE, which launched in 2020 and features the iPhone 11’s A13 processor and an iPhone 8-like body for $399.

Apple’s new SE is the same concept, retaining an iPhone 8 shell and a Touch ID home button, except it’s outfitted with the iPhone 13‘s A15 Bionic processor and 5G support. You can preorder the 2022 iPhone SE now, and it will become available on Friday, starting at $429 — a slight price hike from its 2020 predecessor.

The long-awaited successor to the iPhone SE (2020) was announced by Apple during its March 8 “Peek Performance” event. It features Apple’s A15 chip (which is the same one found in the iPhone 13 series), 5G and stronger glass, but the same overall design as the previous generation.

Pricing for the new iPhone SE starts at $429 and preorders are open now.
