The most powerful 4-inch phone ever. Its creation started with a beloved design, then reinvented it from the inside out. The A9 is the same advanced chip used in the 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.
A beloved design. Now with more to love
The 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-inch Retina display makes everything look vibrant and sharp. And matt-chamfered edges and a colour-matched stainless steel logo finish the look.
The most powerful 4-inch phone ever
At the core of the iPhone SE is the A9, the same advanced chip that's in the 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.
Super-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.
The only camera you'll ever need
With a 12-megapixel iSight camera, you can be sure to capture sharp, detailed stills like the ones shot on the iPhone 6s. That includes shooting - and even editing - brilliant 4K video, which is up to four times the resolution of 1080p HD video.
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
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 display chip that allows the display to flash three times brighter than usual, 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.
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.
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.
An easier, more secure way to pay
Touch ID isnít just for unlocking your phone. It also lets you use Apple Pay at over two million stores and within apps. In stores, just hold your iPhone near the reader with your finger on Touch ID and youíre done. Because your card details are never shared - or even stored on your device - Apple Pay is a safer, more private way to pay.
Faster LTE and Wi-Fi
Browse the web, download apps and games, and stream video over 802.11ac Wi-Fi and LTE - with speeds even faster than on the iPhone 5s. And more LTE bands make the iPhone SE better for worldwide roaming. The iPhone SE also supports Voice over LTE and Wi-Fi calling for high-quality wideband calls. And with Bluetooth technology, you can stay connected to your Apple Watch, external speakers, and other devices.
Hardware and software made for each other
With an easy-to-use interface, amazing features and security at its core, iOS 9 is the most advanced mobile operating system and the foundation of the iPhone SE. It's designed to look beautiful and work beautifully on your iPhone, so even the simplest tasks are more fun.
Apps that help you do more every day
Your iPhone comes with a collection of essential apps straight out of the box. Messages lets you send texts with photos, videos links and more. Music makes it easy to access the entire Apple Music library along with your personal collection.4 With FaceTime you can make video calls from your iPhone to someone else's iPhone, iPad or Mac. And Maps keeps you headed in the right direction.
Your wish is its command
Siri is your personal assistant, letting you use your voice to send messages, search the web, get guidance on public transport and more. You can even ask Siri to search your photo library to find just the photo or video you're looking for.
There's an app for that
With over one and a half million apps in the App Store, you'll be able to make your phone your own.5 Whether you browse by category or search for something specific, quickly discover and download new apps with a tap.
