We’ve announced we will offer the second-generation iPhone SE, a powerful new iPhone featuring a 4.7-inch Retina HD display, paired with Touch ID for industry-leading security.

iPhone SE comes in a compact design, reinvented from the inside out, and is the most affordable iPhone powered by the Apple-designed A13 Bionic, the fastest chip in a smartphone to handle the most demanding tasks. The new iPhone SE also features the best single-camera system ever in an iPhone that unlocks the benefits of Portrait mode, and is designed to withstand the elements with dust and water resistance.

The new iPhone SE will be available from 8am AEST Friday 24 April at telstra.com.au and in retail stores*.

iPhone SE comes in three beautiful colours — black, white and (PRODUCT)RED** — and features an aerospace-grade aluminium and durable glass design, and a 4.7-inch Retina HD display with True Tone that adjusts the white balance to match the ambient light and offers incredible colour accuracy with its vibrant wide colour gamut. The familiar Home Button is designed with sapphire crystal and a steel ring to detect a user’s fingerprint for Touch ID, an easy, private and secure way to unlock iPhone, use Apple Pay and authorise App Store purchases.

The Apple-designed A13 Bionic, introduced with iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro, provides unparalleled performance for every task — perfect for photography, gaming and augmented reality experiences — and enables great battery life. In addition, iPhone SE features the best single-camera system ever in an iPhone, which uses the image signal processor and Neural Engine of A13 Bionic to unlock Portrait mode(1), all six Portrait Lighting effects and Depth Control. Videos are even more immersive with stereo audio recording and cinematic video stabilisation on the front and rear cameras.

iPhone SE is wireless-charging capable with Qi-certified chargers and supports fast-charging(2), giving customers up to 50 percent charge in just 30 minutes. It is water-and dust-resistant with an IP67 rating for water resistance up to 1 meter for 30 minutes(3). Lightning-fast download speeds are available with Wi-Fi 6 and Gigabit-class LTE(4), and dual SIM with eSIM(5) provides the flexibility for users to have two separate phone numbers on a single device while traveling abroad or for use as a business line.

Telstra Group Executive, Consumer & Small Business, Michael Ackland, said, “we’re excited about the introduction of the new iPhone SE and Apple’s ongoing commitment to creating incredible products. The new iPhone SE is an inspired reinvention that packs in the best Apple has to offer in a familiar shape and size. We’re pleased to offer this amazing new device at a competitive price on Australia’s best network, with individual plans suited to our customer’s exact needs.”
