iPhone SE

A big step for small.

Watch the keynote

Welcome to iPhone SE, the most powerful 4‑inch phone ever. To create it, we started with a beloved design, then re-invented it from the inside out. The A9 is the same advanced chip used in iPhone 6s. The 12‑megapixel camera captures incredible photos and 4K videos. And Live Photos bring your images to life. The result is an iPhone that looks small. But lives large.

Design

A beloved design. Now with more to love.

iPhone SE takes an incredibly popular design and refines it even further. Crafted from bead-blasted aluminium for a satin-like finish, this light and compact phone is designed to fit comfortably in your hand. A brilliant 4‑inch1 Retina display makes everything look vibrant and sharp. And matte-chamfered edges and a colour-matched stainless steel logo finish the look.

Technology

The most powerful 4‑inch phone ever.

At the core of iPhone SE is the A9, the same advanced chip that’s in iPhone 6s. With 64‑bit desktop-class architecture, the A9 chip brings you spectacular speed and responsiveness. And with console-class graphics performance, your favourite games and apps are incredibly rich and immersive. Making it a mighty chip for maximum performance.

Remarkably efficient M9 motion coprocessor.

Embedded directly into the A9 chip, the M9 motion coprocessor connects to the accelerometer, compass and gyroscope for a range of fitness-tracking capabilities, such as measuring your steps and distance. It also makes it easy to activate Siri by simply saying “Hey Siri”, without having to pick up your iPhone.

Camera

The only camera you’ll ever need.

With a 12‑megapixel camera, you can capture sharp, detailed stills like the ones shot on iPhone 6s. That includes shooting — and even editing — brilliant 4K video, which is up to four times the resolution of 1080p HD video.

Live Photos.

Capture more than a moment.

Live Photos bring your still photos to life with sound and movement. Simply touch and hold anywhere on your 12-megapixel still and experience the moments just before and after it was taken, so your photos turn into living memories.

FaceTime HD camera with Retina Flash.

Your selfie just got more beautiful.

The Retina display isn’t just a place to see your content — it’s a flash for your FaceTime HD camera. Powered by a custom-engineered display chip that allows the display to flash three times brighter than usual, the Retina Flash helps illuminate your selfies in low light and at night. And a True Tone flash matches the ambient light for more true-to-life colours and natural-looking skin tones.

iCloud Photo Library.

All your photos and videos, always with you.

iCloud Photo Library stores every photo and video you take, and keeps them up to date on all your devices. Any edits you make are automatically updated everywhere, so you can view a photo from last week or last year no matter where you are.

Touch ID

Advanced security. At your fingertip.

Touch ID makes unlocking your iPhone SE simple and secure. After all, your fingerprint is the perfect password — no two are alike, and you always have it with you.

Apple Pay

An easier, more secure way to pay.

Touch ID isn’t just for unlocking your phone. It also lets you use Apple Pay everywhere you can make contactless payments with your eligible cards, and within participating apps. In stores, just hold your iPhone near the reader with your finger on Touch ID and you’re done. Because your card details are never shared — or even stored on your device — Apple Pay is a safer, more private way to pay.
