Welcome to iPhone SE, the most powerful 4-inch phone ever. To create it, Apple started with a beloved design, then reinvented 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 brings your images to life. The result is an iPhone that looks small. But lives large.


A beloved design. Now with more 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-inch1Retina 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 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.

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 iPhone 6s. That includes shooting — and even editing — brilliant 4K video, which is up to four times the resolution of 1080p HD video.

The only camera you'll ever need.

Live Photos brings 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 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.

Advanced security.

Right 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 isn't just for unlocking your phone. It also lets you use Apple Pay in hundreds of thousands of shops and within apps. In shops, 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.

Faster 4G LTE and Wi-Fi.

Browse the web, download apps and games, and stream video over 802.11ac Wi-Fi and 4G LTE — with speeds even faster than on iPhone 5s. More LTE bands make iPhone SE better for worldwide roaming.2 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 foundation of 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.5 And Maps keeps you heading in the right direction with spoken turn-by-turn navigation, real-time traffic updates and a helpful Transport view.

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.

"Hey Siri, remind me about this when I get in the car"

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.6 Whether you browse by category or search for something specific, quickly discover and download new apps with a tap.

Making the switch to iPhone has never been easier.

Apple iPhone SE is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 41.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Brilliant little fella I brought this iPhone SE two mouths ago and it a great product with a free 12 mouths warranty included, it small and great for high end game like PUGB & Fortnite and more. I would recommend this if you are an apple fanboy or someone looking to move to iOS platform on tight budget.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Old looking beast It’s been over a year since I got this phone. I can’t remember having any issues in terms of software (lagging, freezing or shutting apps down). It’s rear camera is decent, but front facing camera is not so great. 4” screen makes it easier to hold and use with one hand. However, I realised that it is painful to read news or articles on it. I often find myself keeping the phone 10cm away from my face which is not good for your eyes. If you are into games, again 4” screen is not the best option. I must say that battery is not as good. According to the battery settings, battery health is on 85% but there are times where I see it going from 25s to 10s in a minute, or even shut down completely. Overall, a good phone but I would recommend you go to a store and test the screen to see if it is an issue for you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing little phone I finally gave in and bought my very first iPhone on Tuesday. I don’t know why I waited so long I love it. I was concerned I would find it difficult switching from Android to Apple but after a few false starts (me not reading the instructions) away I went with it. The camera was my main concern but I have to say so far it’s taken some pretty good shots and all I’ve done is point and shoot. Colours really pop and the call quality is pretty near perfect. The battery isn’t as good as my Honor 7X but it’s pretty close. Took it off charge at 8.30 am and I’ve still got over 70% battery left and I’ve been on it a fair bit today. Phone itself is nice and slim and fits right into my pocket nice to hold and the screen is easy to read. Yes it’s a smaller keyboard to type on but u soon get used to that. So far I’m not missing my Android. Just wondering what took me so long to buy An iPhone.
