iOS 15 and beyond

iPhone SE is made to run the latest features – and even some that haven’t been invented yet. So you can use Dark Mode, Siri Shortcuts and the new Photos app now. And taken advantage of feature and security updates in the future.


The advanced camera system with A15 Bionic brings you Portrait mode, which offers six studio-quality lighting effects and depth control to artfully blur the background to put the focus on your subject – even when you’re taking selfies. Change the level of blur even after you’ve taken the photo.

Next‑generation Smart HDR knows a face when it sees one, and intelligently relights it to capture more natural-looking contours and skin tones. It also finesses highlight and shadow detail in the background. So every part of your photo looks amazing.

4K video means you’ll see four times more detail than in 1080p HD video. And extended dynamic range adds greater detail in highlights and shadows. When a photo op turns into a video op, you can instantly start recording video by just holding the shutter.

Rear camera 12MP: Optical image stabilisation, digital zoom up to 5×, True Tone flash with slow sync, Portrait Lighting with six effects (Natural, Studio, Contour, Stage, Stage Mono, High-Key Light Mono), Next-generation Smart HDR for photos.

Front camera 7MP: FaceTime HD camera, Retina Flash, Auto HDR for photos, Portrait mode with advanced bokeh and Depth control, Portrait Lighting, Cinematic video stabilisation (1080p and 720p), 1080p HR video recording at 24fps or 30fps, QuickTake video.


The front-facing 7MP camera allows you to FaceTime at higher resolutions with wider colour capture for natural-looking skin tones. Initiate video and audio calls over a mobile network or wi‑fi to any FaceTime-enabled device.
