IPhone SE with iOS 13 delivers a seamless experience with software and hardware integration unlike any other smartphone. iOS 13 features a dramatic look with Dark Mode, a more private way to sign in to apps and websites with Sign In with Apple, and an all-new Maps experience that delivers faster and more accurate navigation and attractive street-level imagery with Look Around. Taking its place as the most affordable model in the iPhone lineup, the SE features the fastest chip available in a smartphone and the best single-camera system ever to appear in an iPhone. The all-new iPhone SE comes with the same name as its original version launched in 2016.

Yes, the display, battery life, and camera on the iPhone SE aren't as impressive as those in Apple's pricier models, but if you can live with that, this (on paper) is insane good value for an Apple product.

The price goes down even further - down to $229/$279/$379, depending on storage - if you're willing to trade an eligible, old iPhone for the new iPhone SE. In India, iPhone SE will be available starting at Rs 42,500. iPhone SE retains the same design as iPhone 8.

Connectivity is 802.11ax Wi-Fi 6, with Bluetooth 5.0. For the camera, Apple has opted for a single wide-angle 12-megapixel sensor and lens combination, rather than moving to a dual or triple-camera setup.

iPhone SE is built with the same industry-leading security features that customers expect from Apple - protecting privacy and giving customers control of their information. The company notes local video playback of up to 13 hours, streaming video playback of up to 8 hours, and up to 40 hours of audio playback.
