Unlike what it did with the last Touch ID-equipped iPhone in 2020, which was announced with a simple press release, Apple took the stage at a dedicated spring device crop keynote event to lift the curtains over its new 2022 iPhone SE – its cheapest 5G iPhone – with a proper media presentation.
What Apple didn’t do, however, is release the iPhone SE immediately after the March 8 event, and we had to wait until today for its preorders to start and yet another week for the actual release date.
iPhone SE preorder pricing
- iPhone SE 64GB price: $429
- iPhone SE 128GB price: $479
- iPhone SE 256GB price: $579
Apple will let you buy the iPhone SE on installments, too, starting at just $17.87 for the 64GB model (we know, that kind of storage is rather small considering the 4K video recording capabilities of the phone).
Despite that there are no other upgrades than the new A15 chipset and the 5G modem worth mentioning, you’d be pleased to hear that all the camera-centric bells and whistles that the A15 brought to the iPhone 13, like Photographic Styles, or the Smart HDR 4 algorithms, are present on the iPhone SE (2022) as well.
