Apple’s update to its budget iPhone will reportedly give Android flagships a run for their money.
Although Apple seems to go dark during the winter months, the company is reportedly hard at work on several new products for 2022. And while we’re still a few months away from the company’s spring event, everyone is talking about the rumored third-gen iPhone SE. Keep in mind Apple does not share details about upcoming hardware, so there’s a good likelihood the company will throw us a few curveballs. That said, rumors, supply chain chatter, historical trends, and analyst reports help paint a picture of what’s to come. Here’s everything we think we know about the iPhone SE 2022. What Will the iPhone SE 3 Look Like? iPhone SE 2020 (right) and iPhone 11 (left) The iPhone SE 3 will reportedly look like the 2020 iPhone SE, which resembles the iPhone 8, measures 5.45 by 2.65 by 0.29 inches (HWD), and weighs 5.22 ounces. (There’s a chance the measurement and weight will change slightly to accommodate the 5G modem and antennas.) While there were some early reports saying Apple would use the iPhone 11’s form factor, Apple analysts Ming-Chi Kuo and Ross Young say there’s no merit to the rumors. The front of the phone will have a 4.7-inch LCD panel, MacRumors reports. We wouldn’t be surprised to see Apple bump the display up to 1080p, but details are scant. As with its predecessor, expect the upcoming iPhone SE to have a large bottom bezel and Touch ID button. We expect it will have the same Qi wireless charging as the second-gen iPhone SE, but there’s a chance Apple could add MagSafe to the mix. Durability should be good as well, but maybe not quite on par with the latest iPhone flagships. The current iPhone SE is rated IP67 (can be 1 meter underwater for up to 30 minutes) versus IP68 (6 meters up to 30 minutes) on the iPhone 13 lineup. What Type of Hardware Will the iPhone SE 3 Have? The iPhone SE 3 is rumored to have the same A15 chipset used on Apple’s iPhone 13 lineup, according to Nikkei (other, less reliable sources suggest the A14).
