Welcome to iPhone SE, the most powerful 4‑inch phone ever. To create it, we started with a beloved design, then reinvented it from the inside out. The A9 is the same advanced chip used in iPhone 6s. The 12‑megapixel camera captures incredible photos and 4K videos. And Live Photos bring your images to life. The result is an iPhone that looks small. But lives large.
A beloved design. Now with more to love.
iPhone SE takes an incredibly popular design and refines it even further. Crafted from bead-blasted aluminum for a satin-like finish, this light and compact phone is designed to fit comfortably in your hand. A brilliant 4‑inchRetina display makes everything look vibrant and sharp. And matte-chambered edges and a color-matched stainless steel logo finish the look.
The most powerful 4‑inch phone ever.
At the core of iPhone SE is the A9, the same advanced chip that’s in iPhone 6s. With 64‑bit desktop-class architecture, the A9 chip brings you spectacular speed and responsiveness. And with console-class graphics performance, your favorite games and apps are incredibly rich and immersive. Making it a mighty chip for maximum performance.
Super-efficient M9 motion co-processor.
Embedded directly into the A9 chip, the M9 motion co-processor connects to the accelerometer, compass, and gyroscope for a range of ﬁtness tracking capabilities, such as measuring your steps and distance. It also makes it easy to activate Siri by simply saying “Hey Siri,” without having to pick up your iPhone.
The only camera you’ll ever need.
With a 12‑megapixel iSight camera, you can be sure to capture sharp, detailed stills like the ones shot on iPhone 6s. That includes shooting — and even editing — brilliant 4K video, which is up to four times the resolution of 1080p HD video.
Capture more than a moment.
Live Photos bring your still photos to life with sound and movement. Simply touch and hold anywhere on your 12-megapixel still and experience the moments just before and after it was taken, so your photos turn into living memories.
Face Time HD camera with Retina Flash.
Your selfie just got more beautiful.
The Retina display isn’t just a place to see your content — it’s a flash for your FaceTime HD camera. Powered by a custom display chip that allows the display to flash three times brighter than usual, the Retina Flash helps illuminate your selfies in low light and at night. And a True Tone flash matches the ambient light for more true-to-life colors and natural-looking skin tones.
iCloud Photo Library.
All your photos and videos, always with you.
iCloud Photo Library stores every photo and video you take and keeps them up to date on all your devices. Any edits you make are automatically updated everywhere, so you can view a photo from last week or last year no matter where you are.
Advanced security. Right at your fingertip.
Touch ID makes unlocking your iPhone SE simple and secure. After all, your fingerprint is the perfect password — no two are alike, and you always have it with you.
An easier, more secure way to pay.
Touch ID isn’t just for unlocking your phone. It also lets you use Apple Pay at over two million stores and within apps. In stores, just hold your iPhone near the reader with your finger on Touch ID and you’re done. Because your card details are never shared — or even stored on your device — Apple Pay is a safer, more private way to pay.
Browse the web, download apps and games, and stream video over 802.11ac Wi-Fi and LTE — with speeds even faster than on iPhone 5s. And more LTE bands make iPhone SE better for worldwide roaming. iPhone SE also supports Voice over LTE and Wi-Fi calling for high-quality wide-band calls.And with Bluetooth technology, you can stay connected to your Apple Watch, external speakers, and other devices.
Hardware and software made for each other.
With an easy-to-use interface, amazing features, and security at its core, iOS 9 is the most advanced mobile operating system and the foundation of iPhone SE. It’s designed to look beautiful and work beautifully on your iPhone, so even the simplest tasks are more fun.
Apps that help you do more every day.
Your iPhone comes with a collection of essential apps right out of the box. Messages lets you send texts with photos, videos, links, and more. Music makes it easy to access the entire Apple Music library along with your personal collection.4 With FaceTime you can make video calls from your iPhone to someone else’s iPhone, iPad, or Mac. And Maps keeps you headed in the right direction with spoken turn-by-turn navigation, real-time traffic updates, and a helpful Transit view.
Your wish is its command.

Siri is your personal assistant, letting you use your voice to send messages, search the web, get guidance on public transportation, and more. You can even ask Siri to search your photo library to find just the photo or video you’re looking for.
Hey Siri, when is sunset in Paris?
Talk to Siri as you would to a friend and it can help you get things done — like sending messages, placing calls, and making dinner reservations. You can ask Siri to show you the Orion constellation or to flip a coin. Siri works hands-free, so you can ask it to show you the best route home and what your ETA is while driving. It works with HomeKit to let your voice be the remote control for connected products in your home. And it’s tuned in to the world, working with Wikipedia, Yelp, Rotten Tomatoes, Shazam, and other online services to get you even more answers. The more you use Siri, the more you’ll realize how great it is. And just how much it can do for you.
