Reviews

The reviews are in, and there’s a clear consensus: Apple’s new iPhone SE is a really good deal. We’re not here to disagree. Our tests show you can repair it with a lot of the same readily available parts from the iPhone 8—and thanks to the same A13 Bionic chip found in the iPhone 11 Pro, it’s punching way above its budget-phone weight class. And it’s priced a little over half what you’d pay for an iPhone 11.

After four years, we have a new budget-conscious iPhone. Like previous SE, it reaches that price point by sticking to components from previous generations.

Rumors
