iPhone SE (2022) battery life: Everything you need to know
There’s a new iPhone in town, and that one’s the third generation of the iPhone SE line, which aims to bring an affordable iPhone to people unfazed by the latest advancements of Apple’s main phone lineup. Indeed, the third-gen iPhone SE keeps the tried and old design of the iPhone 8, but supercharges what matters the most – the hardware inside, resulting in improved camera experience, exceptional future-proofness, and overall, a great value for money.
iPhone SE (2022) battery
As evident above, we get a rather decent bump of 2 hours increased battery life in both regular and streamed video playback, while audio playback has been increased to 50 hours, a 20% increase over the previous iPhone SE (2020). That’s pushing the new iPhone SE (2022) very close to the battery life readings achieved by the iPhone 11, one of the longer-lasting iPhones.
We can’t say if the increased battery life is due to a slight increase in battery capacity or merely due to A15 Bionic’s efficiency, but in any case, one thing is for certain: the most compact iPhone on sale in early 2022 will be an idea more durable than before. That’s a win for the regular customer that’s willing to get the iPhone SE (2022) for $429.
iPhone SE (2022) charging
The iPhone SE (2022) comes with no charger in the box, as is now tradition for Apple’s phones.
The phone will charge up to 50% in 30 minutes, with a 20W charging adapter or higher. Of course, you will have to get one separately if you don’t have one already. There’s Qi wireless charging capability on the iPhone SE (2022), but don’t expect dramatically faster speeds than its wired counterpart.
