Apple’s iPhone SE 4 Tipped For An iPhone 14-Like Design
Apple hasn’t updated the iPhone SE for a little while but there are rumors that the next model could be the biggest refresh yet.
If the latest report is accurate, Apple will ditch the Home button for good with the iPhone SE 4.
That report comes via MacRumors which claims that the iPhone SE 4 will borrow heavily from the iPhone 14’s design. Specifically, the report says that the iPhone 14’s chassis will be slightly modified to become the iPhone SE. That means that the Home button will be gone, with Face ID replacing Touch ID.
Newly obtained specifications indicate the iPhone SE 4 will use a modified version of the existing iPhone 14 chassis, with the same flat design. The dimensions of the iPhone SE 4 in its current stage perfectly match those of the base model iPhone 14. Recent findings also confirm that the fourth-generation iPhone SE will not include a Touch ID home button, instead featuring an all-screen design derived from the iPhone 14, with Face ID serving as the means of biometric identification.
This would mean that the next iPhone SE will have a 6.1-inch display, up from the 4.7-inch display that iPhone SE buyers are more accustomed to.
The upgrades come in the form of the camera as well, with the report claiming that Apple will give the iPhone SE 4 the 48-megapixel camera that’s currently offered on Apple’s best iPhones, although it’s possible it will be tweaked slightly.
Other notable points include an Action button, a feature that is only available on the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max right now. There’s no indication of when this new model will go on sale, however.
