Which means the iPhone SE just got a huge boost to its gaming capabilities as well as computational photography and computing efficiency. Those are just where the improvements start though. As the A15 Bionic chip will bring a ton of new benefits to the iPhone SE that weren’t possible or available before. Such as better battery life.

Apple doesn’t say how much better the battery life is though. Just that it’ll last longer on this new version of the device.

It’s also using the same durable glass of the iPhone 13 line on both the front and back. Apple says it will launch on March 18. Although, customers will be able to start pre-ordering the device this coming Friday.

Having a phone with 5G connectivity is a big boost to pretty much everything. Users get more reliable and faster connection to the network. Which translates to faster app and game downloads, better connectivity in online games, lower latency, and higher quality HD FaceTime calls.

A new SmartData feature will also help preserve battery life when the battery is running low. So the phone will last you until you’re able to toss it on a wireless charger or plug it in.

The device comes with a 4.7-inch Retina display and will be available starting at $429 for the 64GB model. Apple will also offer 128GB and 256GB models of the device. Plus all three variations will come in three colors – Midnight, Starlight, and (PRODUCT) RED.
