The new iPhone 15 series has been announced, and people are really excited about it. These new iPhones are getting attention for their strong titanium body and the use of a USB-C port. But don’t forget about the iPhone SE! It’s a budget-friendly option that many people love. Apple has mostly kept the inside parts the same in recent versions, but this time, it looks like the iPhone SE 4 might get a whole new look, similar to what they’ve done with other iPhones.
In this guide, we’ll tell you all we know so far about the new IP SE 4, so let’s get started!
iPhone SE 4: Release Date
Apple introduced the iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Pro at their big event in September 2023. These phones have super-fast A16 Bionic and A17 Pro Bionic chips inside.
But, if you were hoping for a new iPhone SE 4 this year, it’s not happening. Reports say that Apple won’t start making the SE 4 until 2025. They had some delays with the special screens it needs and their own 5G technology. Instead, Apple made a deal with Qualcomm to use their 5G tech in iPhones until 2026.
Even next year in 2024, it doesn’t look like we’ll see the new iPhone SE 4. Famous tech analyst Ming-Chi Kuo also thinks we’ll have to wait until 2026 to get our hands on it.
iPhone SE 4: Price (Expected)
While we don’t have an official price from Apple for the SE 4, we can make some educated guesses. The iPhone SE 2 started at $399, and they raised it to $429 for the iPhone SE 3. But, from what we’re hearing in rumors, the SE 4 is getting some big changes in its looks and what’s inside.
So, this time, it might cost a lot more. It would be great if it stayed around $450, but with all the fancy stuff they’re putting in it, it could easily go over $500. A more reasonable guess would be that it will be somewhere between $500 and $600.
iPhone SE 4: Cameras, Software, and Battery
As you’ve learned about the iPhone SE 4, it’s clear they’re trying to make it more like the newer iPhones in how it looks and works. Thanks to the new chip inside, it should use less power but still perform really well. This means the battery might last longer, but we don’t have exact details about that yet.
Now, about the camera, we’re not sure if it’s getting a big upgrade this time. In the past, the iPhone SE 2 and SE 3 had the same camera as the iPhone 8. The info we talked about earlier suggests it will stick with just one rear camera, like before. However, there’s a chance they might use the cool 48MP camera they put in the iPhone 15. People would be happy if they added features like Night Mode for better photos in the dark.
When it comes to the software, the iPhone SE 4 will run the latest iOS, probably iOS 19. We don’t know all the new stuff it will have, but maybe Siri will get smarter with AI and LLM support. Apple already showed off iOS 17 at WWDC 2023, and it has some cool features. You can check out the best ones here.
