AT APPLE’S Peek Performance event, the global tech firm pulled the wraps off the 2022 refresh of the iPhone SE.

In keeping with the spirit of the original release, the iPhone SE is still a small, relatively inexpensive phone that keeps the classic design (complete with big bezels and Touch ID sensor). However, a new A15 chip — the same as you’d find on the iPhone 13 — gives it a little more horsepower, and 5G capabilities means you’ll get the best mobile speeds for your internet.

With a 4.7-inch screen, the phone is small enough to operate with one hand and slip into the tightest jean pockets. Apple also claims that the battery life has been improved.
