This year we made the most powerful and durable iPhone SE ever, with better battery life thanks to A15 Bionic, the same chip in our iPhone 13 range that also unlocks advanced camera features like Smart HDR 4, Photo Styles and Deep Fusion, ” said Kaiann Drance, Apple’s vice president of Worldwide iPhone Product Marketing. “And with 5G, iPhone SE offers users faster downloads and uploads, higher quality video streaming, real-time interactivity in apps, and more.

Performance and Battery


The photographic compartment of the iPhone SE 2022 has, on the back, a 12MP wide angle lens with F1.8 aperturewhile on the front there is a 7MP lens. Thanks to the presence of the A15 Bionic chip, the phone supports (with both lenses) computational photography functions, including Smart HDR 4 for photos, Photo Styles, Deep Fusion and Portrait mode with advanced bokeh effect and Depth Control. Introduced with iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13technology Smart HDR 4 it uses intelligent segmentation to apply the right color, contrast and digital noise adjustments to the subjects against the background to allow the correct exposure of faces even in the most difficult lighting conditions. The Photographic styles allow you to apply your own photographic preferences to each image while still benefiting from Apple’s multi-frame processing. Custom presets and preferences act on scenes and subjects and, unlike a simple filter, intelligently apply the right adjustments to different parts of the photo to preserve the most important elements of the shot, such as different skin tones. Deep Fusion uses machine learning algorithms to process photos pixel by pixel and optimize texture, detail and digital noise in every part of the photo. The ISP processor of the A15 Bionic chip can enhance videos by reducing digital noise (especially when there is little light), with better white balance and a more realistic rendering of skin tones.
