iPhone SE: Apple unveils its new smaller, cheaper handset

A smaller, cheaper iPhone has been unveiled by Apple, as one of a number of new products and updates announced at its launch. The iPhone SE will have a four-inch screen and will be aimed at emerging markets and possibly China.

The more compact phone design comes after Apple expanded the size of the screens in its high-end iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus phones in 2014 to as large as 5.5 inches. Other products unveiled at Apple’s Cupertino, California headquarters, include an iPad Pro to replace the IPad Air 2, as well as updates on existing tech.

Before the launch chief executive, Tim Cook, defended the company’s refusal to comply with a U.S. court order to unlock an iPhone belonging to one of the shooters in a December attack in San Bernardino, California.

He said that ‘Apple has a responsibility to protect customers’ data and privacy’ adding it ‘will not shrink from that responsibility. The iPhone SE will rely on the same processor and have many other features in the larger 4.7-inch iPhone 6S, which came out six months ago.

Like the iPhone 6S, the iPhone SE will be able to take pictures at 12 megapixels. By comparison, the iPhone 5S’s camera is limited to 8 megapixels. The iPhone SE will also be equipped with a longer-lasting battery than the iPhone 5S and have faster wireless connections. It will also work with Apple Pay, the company’s digital wallet.

Prices for the new iPhone will start at £359 for a model in the UK with 16 gigabits of storage. It will be free if customers commit to a two-year contract with their wireless carrier, as was the case with the 5S.

Orders for the iPhone SE will start Thursday. The phone will begin shipping March 31 in the U.S. and several other countries.
