At the ‘Peak Performance’ event, Apple has finally introduced the iPhone SE 3 (or the iPhone SE 2022 if you will) alongside the new Green colour option of the iPhone 13 series. The all-new iPhone SE 3 is the first 5G phone in the SE lineup thanks to the inclusion of the A15 Bionic chipset, which is an upgrade from the earlier A13 Bionic SoC from 2020. The launch event also puts an end to the rumours about the design of the new SE model — it looks exactly like its predecessor (and even 2014’s iPhone 6), with thick bezels above and below the screen and a Touch ID physical fingerprint sensor. The iPhone SE 3 also brings improved optics and slightly longer battery life.
