The latest, 3rd generation iPhone SE is now available. Check out its new features and all the best prices on our new iPhone SE 3 deals page.

What are the iPhone SE’s key features?

Here are some of the main features the iPhone SE has to offer:

  • 4.7” Retina HD Display: which is the same size as previous popular phones like the iPhone 6 and iPhone 8.
  • A13 Bionic chip: which is also in the iPhone 11 series, making the phone great for gaming and photography.
  • QuickTake Video: that lets you instantly start recording, even in photo mode, by just holding the shutter - so you don’t miss those special moments.
  • Portrait mode: which blurs the background to help you focus on the most important part.
  • Depth control: simply use the slider to decide how detailed you want the background to be.
  • Touch ID: to unlock your phone, use with Apple Pay and get new apps.
  • iOS 13: which gives you access to the latest features like Dark Mode and Siri shortcuts.

What iPhone SE colours are there?

  • White
  • Black
  • Red

If you choose a red phone, Apple will donate money to the Global Fund to fight COVID-19.

How much does the iPhone SE cost in Ireland?

It’s no longer available to buy directly from the Apple website, but you can still find good iPhone bill pay deals or buy a secondhand iPhone SE 2nd generation from one of the many refurbished webstores.

Buying your new iPhone SE upfront means you could switch to a SIM-only deal. If you can afford to buy outright, this option could save money in the long run and means you can move to a cheaper deal whenever you like.

Should you get the iPhone SE?

If you’re on a tight budget, the iPhone SE is much more affordable than its competition.

It doesn’t have the same advanced features as the iPhone 12 like face ID and an ultra-wide camera, but it runs off the same superfast chip so it’s not lacking in speed.

If you’re looking for a fast, compact, stylish phone with a high-quality camera, but fewer frills than its superior models, it’s well worth checking out.

If you haven’t made your mind up yet, take a look at other iPhones from the Apple stable. We’ve researched all the features and have the latest deals from Ireland’s best mobile networks.
