After months of speculation, Apple’s latest budget iPhone model, the iPhone SE (2022), was finally unveiled as the company’s latest budget iPhone model on Tuesday (March 8) at a virtual Apple event.

In contrast, the previous model had 4G connectivity and an A13 Bionic processor. On the back, the iPhone SE (2022) has a better camera. Aside from the three major hardware upgrades, the new iPhone SE follows the design language of the previous model, which was released nearly two years ago.
