Where to buy the new iPhone SE 5G in Australia
Apple's latest budget offering, the new iPhone SE, is upon us.
Apple fans are used to shelling out big bucks for the latest tech. But every couple of years, we're blessed with the iPhone SE, a far more moderately priced phone with many of the same bells and whistles found on its pricier siblings. The new iPhone SE represents the third generation of the line.
The new iPhone SE can't be distinguished from its 2020 and 2021 models by name, so make sure you're buying the most recent model when you get your orders in online. This time around, the SE has 5G capability, an improved 12MP camera, and enhanced processing and storage functionality.
The SE 2022 sticks with the trend of putting the internals of one iPhone into the chassis of another. Like the SE 2020, the body of the iPhone 8 is used. However, this time it's carrying the A15 bionic chip, as seen across the iPhone 13 range. Check out our review of the iPhone 13 to see just how much we loved this chip. Seeing this technology brought to a more affordable phone is an exciting prospect indeed.
You have a number of storefronts to choose from to get your pre-orders in for the iPhone SE 2022. The phone will be released on 18 March, and carries a recommended retail price of $719 for the 64GB model, $799 for the 128GB model and $969 for the 256GB model.
