Apple’s new iPhone SE unveiled in the Apple event, 21st April. It comes up with new enhanced security features for users. According to Apple, iPhone SE is the most powerful 4 inch iPhone ever. Though the size has gone little, performance is as compact as iPhone 6S. According to the experts Apple has reduced the size to coupe up with the bending issue of the iPhone.
iPhone SE- Features and Specs
Design of iPhone SE is very similar of iPhone 6S. We guess both the phone can share same case! Power button has shifted to the right side and volume rocker gets a “pill shape” instead of “traditional round” shape. It’s a futuristic change while keeping phone ergonomics in mind. 4 inch phone is really better to hold phone in palm.
iPhone SE- Display
Many iPhone lovers think that the display of iPhone SE got a retrospective design. But we don’t think so. A research reveals that more than 30% iPhone users still prefer 4 inch screen and they are on iPhone 4S and iPhone 5C. It may be the reason why Apple kept 4 inch display for its upcoming iPhone. But not to worry, as retina display with Sapphire protective covering layer will be on it for providing primary protection against tumbles. But the tweak is that it got curved edge display like iPhone 6 or 6 plus. It makes it premium looking.
iPhone SE- Specs
iPhone always provides lag free experience and the same thing will be here also, because specially designed A9 processor will be there in the core of the iPhone SE to power up all your tasks. 2GB RAM will be clubbed to make the process faster while multitasking is preferred.
Faster CPU with Faster data connectivity
iPhone SE is powered by a A9 chipset and six color variations is confirmed by Apple. It got 50pc faster 4G and 3x faster Wi-Fi than the iPhone 5S.
Touch ID or finger print scanner will be there at home button as it was there in iPhone 6 or 6S. But there will be no 3D touch technology. Yeah….it’s a drawback definitely.
Everything like Bluetooth 4.2, fast 802.11ac WiFi, and VoLTE will be there but no lightning port. It will get 3.5 mm head jack port instead. Previous rumors indicated that it will come with iPhone 7.
iPhone SE- NFC

Live Photo capture redefined the ways of moment capture
In camera segment, Apple improved the resolution of the rear camera. iPhone SE got a powerful 12 MP camera and as well as panorama up to 63MP! Video capture quality is 4K. Live photo capturing capability is the added new feature. Apple Pay and Touch ID are built-in in this iPhone SE.
iPhone SE- Battery
Battery can be the weakest part of iPhone SE as it’s getting attached with 1625 mAh Lithium ion battery. But Apple said it will be enough to fuel up a 4 inch iPhone for a day! Let’s see. It seems Apple is improving its battery this time.
iPhone SE & Improved Security
Apple has taken the recent issue of security and the battle with FBI seriously. Apple made the encryption technology improved and it gets enhanced with retina verification. They stated, “We owe it to our customers and we owe it to our country. This is an issue that affects all of us and we will not shrink from our responsibility.”
iPhone SE- Colors
It will bear two traditional colors of iPhone- Space Gray and Golden but a tweak indicates that it will have a pink shade with it also! When we got the news first time, the word came out was…”Pink? Really?” it’s really a “Girl time”!

It’s gonna be released on 21st March, 2016 along with iPad pro. Apple will arrange an event on 15th Mach and showcased these two upcoming devices there.
