Apple has introduced the iPhone SE with a 4-inch display, in a compact aluminum design that has been updated with matte-chamfered edges, a color-matched stainless steel Apple logo, and four metallic finishes, including rose gold. The iPhone SE offers performance with the same 64-bit A9 chip offered in the iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus for fast speeds, longer battery life, faster wireless, a 12-megapixel iSight camera featuring Live Photos and Ultra HD video, and Touch ID with Apple Pay.
The 64-bit A9 chip, introduced in iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus, offers iPhone SE customers two times faster CPU and three times faster GPU performance compared to the iPhone 5s, all with gains in energy efficiency for improved battery life. M9, Apple's next-generation motion coprocessor, is integrated into A9 allowing more features to run all the time at lower power, including Hey Siri without having to pick up the iPhone, and a range of fitness tracking capabilities like measuring your steps and distance.
The iPhone SE also includes more LTE bands for better worldwide roaming and supports Voice over LTE and Wi-Fi calling for high-quality wideband calls.
