Everything we know so far about the iPhone SE 2022 – Apple Universe
The new iPhone SE 2022 could be among us very soon.

2022 has arrived and companies are already preparing to launch their new equipment.

Apple is one of the companies that is already beginning to show us a little of what it has in store for us this 2022. And it is that some rumors related to the iPhone SE 2022 have been known, which comes with some interesting news.

The iPhone SE is Apple's cheapest device, so we can't expect great features. However, according to rumors, this device will have more than acceptable features.

In this article we are going to tell you everything that is known so far about this device.

When will the iPhone SE 2022 be available?

Although nothing is confirmed yet, according to the dates that Apple usually uses for its events, we can deduce that this could arrive in the spring.

Remember that the company does not usually give dates of its events until they are close. In this case, the exact same thing happens, however, we would dare to say that it could probably be in April when we see the new iPhone SE 2022.

What are the features of this device?

It will be a team with good characteristics that will surpass the previous generation.

It is important to mention that all these iPhone SE 2022 features that we will talk about are based on rumors and leaks that have been made. This means that some details could change in the coming weeks.

Processor: The Bionic A15

As it has been known thanks to the leaks, the new iPhone SE 2022 could include the Bionic A15 as a processor. The inclusion of this new processor would guarantee that the equipment would have great performance.

Its predecessor included the Bionic A13, so it would not be unreasonable that this new version could include this processor. However, you should not expect it to have a performance similar to that of a high-end computer.


The rumors in this section are a bit vague, and it is that some mention that this new iPhone SE 2022 would remain in the 3 GB of RAM. While others assure that the equipment would incorporate 4 GB of memory.

In any case, for the price range in which this device is located, it would be expected to be a little more. However, Apple knows how to get the most out of its equipment with fewer resources than the competition. So there should be no problem in this section.

Internal storage

Here it does not seem that we will see changes either, this equipment will be available in versions of 64 and 128 GB. These are the traditional versions that the brand has given for these devices.

However, let us remember that its predecessor also had a 256 GB version. But this was withdrawn from the market, and it is not known if it returns.

A better battery

In this statement there is a little lie, and it is that the device will have a design similar to that of the iPhone 8, so the size of the battery will not vary too much. Thanks to the new chip, the energy consumption will be reduced, which will make the battery last much longer.

It is not known how many additional hours of autonomy it will offer, but it is expected to be at least 20 or 30% more.

We could already see a little of this in the Apple Watch, which despite having the same battery, the equipment has a greater autonomy.

An improvement in the cameras

It is no secret to anyone that one of the main deficiencies of this device is in the photographic section. Although you can get very good photos with it, these do not compare to those of a high-end iPhone.

Fortunately, everything seems to indicate that we will see an improvement in the camera of this device allowing you to take better photos, both in daytime and at night. So photography lovers can rejoice, as they will be able to take better pictures.

Face ID and Touch ID

To the delight of many, according to rumors, this new team would incorporate the facial unlocking function. Let's remember that the current version of iPhone SE does not have this feature, so this would be a good addition.

Similarly, Touch ID will be maintained, that is, unlocking by fingerprint. So you will be able to use the blocking method that you like the most on this new computer.

What will be the price of this device?

The device could maintain a price similar to that of the current iPhone SE.

In this section we cannot say exactly the price of it either, since it has not been made official. However, according to rumors, we can expect it to maintain a price similar to that of previous versions, that is, around 400 euros.

Of course, remember there has been an increase in inflation in the United States, which can affect the price of this device.

This means that it would not be unusual to see a small increase in price. All these are assumptions until Apple announces the final price of this equipment.

There are also rumors about which devices will lose support this year.
