After what felt like a never-ending string of rumors, Apple today officially announced the new 2020 iPhone SE. As expected, the new device is available in three different colors and three different storage capacities, starting at $399. Are you planning to buy the new iPhone SE?
The new iPhone SE features a 4.7-inch display with a design nearly identical to the iPhone 8. That means you have larger bezels around the display, alongside a Home button with Touch ID instead of Face ID for biometric authentication. In many ways, it’s an iPhone 8, but with an A13 Bionic processor inside.
Apple’s goal is to convince iPhone users who don’t want the burden of learning the new gesture-based navigation of the iPhone X and newer to upgrade to this new iPhone SE. It’s more powerful, more future-proof, and capable of running iOS 13 and accessing all of Apple’s new services.
If I had to guess, I would say that most 9to5Mac readers aren’t buying the new iPhone SE because they want the latest and greatest iPhone 11 or iPhone 11 Pro. But it is possible that 9to5Mac readers have family members who have been waiting for the new iPhone SE to upgrade.
Here’s what else you need to know about the new iPhone SE:
- Pre-orders start Friday, April 17, at 5 a.m. PDT/8 a.m. EDT
- Delivery starts Friday, April 24
- Priced at $399, $449, and $549
- 64GB, 128GB, and 256GB storage options
