Apple hosted its first event of the year today. At the Peek Performance event, Apple launched its much-awaited iPhone SE 2022 smartphone. The phone is the successor to the second-generation iPhone SE model that was launched back in 2022. The third-generation iPhone SE model looks exactly like its predecessor. This means that you get a compact design along with a physical home screen button akin to Apple’s budget smartphone series. While a lot has remained unchanged, Apple has upgraded the heart of the phone, that is, the chipset in order for the device to feel comparatively faster and up to date with the company’s newer generation of iPhones. In practice, the iPhone SE 2022 gets the same A15 Bionic chipset that powers the iPhone 13 series smartphones. Also Read - How to connect Apple AirPods to your Android phone
