iPhone SE 64GB – RRP £439
A 4-inch powerhouse that easily fits in your pocket yet delivers the same high speeds and stunning graphics as the iPhone 6s. It’s designed with an improved battery, a rear-facing 12-megapixel iSight camera with Focus Pixels, True Tone Flash and Live Photos, and FaceTime HD camera with Retina Flash for gorgeous selfies.
Same powerful chip as iPhone 6s
Engineered to bring desktop-class architecture to the iPhone, the 64-bit A9 chip delivers incredible performance and console-standard graphics in apps and games. Overall computing performance is improved by up to 70% over the previous generation, while graphics are as much as 90% faster, ensuring you get a more reactive, immersive experience. Built within the A9 chip is the M9 motion coprocessor, which is connected to the accelerometer, compass and gyroscope to improve city navigation and fitness tracking. It also works to strengthen your connection to Siri, so you don’t have to hold up your iPhone to ask your questions.
Capture amazing photos and 4K videos
Take sharp, detailed photos and brilliant 4K video with the new 12 megapixel iSight camera. It’s faster, with improved tone mapping and image stabilisation, so you can just tap the shutter and let iPhone do the rest. And with four times the resolution of 1080p Full HD video, the detail you can capture in videos is simply extraordinary.
Don’t just capture a still; capture the moment with Live Photos. Live Photos captures the seconds before and after you press the shutter too, complete with movement and sound, so you can bring a photo to life by pressing anywhere on the photo.
FaceTime HD camera with Retina Flash
Besides being able to see your content with more detail, brilliant colours and a higher contrast on the Retina HD display, you’ll also be able to capture yourself with this rich intensity thanks to the Retina Flash on the FaceTime HD camera. It’ll brighten your selfies when you’re taking them in low light or at night, so you look your best whatever time of day it is.
With Touch ID, your iPhone is more secure than ever. Touch ID lets you securely unlock your iPhone with your fingerprint. It can be also used to approve purchases from iTunes, iBooks and the App Store without the need for a password.
Updating iOS 9 to 9.3
The latest update to iOS brings improvements to Notes, News, Health and CarPlay, as well as a new feature called Night Shift to give you an improved night’s sleep.
Night Shift: This feature uses the clock and geolocation on your device to determine when it’s sunset where you are and will automatically shift the colours in your display to the warmer end of the spectrum. This action ensures that the level of bright blue light you’re exposed to will gradually be reduced as you get nearer to your bedtime, which is significant because studies show that exposure to bright blue light in the evening can affect your circadian rhythms making it harder for you to fall asleep.
New Notes: This update means you can now secure the information you store in Notes with a password or fingerprint. It’s also easier to find notations as you can sort by date created, date modified and alphabetically.
News: Improved to make sure that the articles in For You are truly tailored to your interests, as well offering you new reading material in the form of trending topics and Editor’s Picks.
Health: Designed to house third-party apps, so you have quick and easy access to your health records. The Weight, Workouts and Sleep sections have been given a new slider menu to show you popular apps you may want to add to your Health dashboard.
CarPlay: More features such as New and For You from Apple Music – letting you listen to the latest tunes while you drive – and the Nearby feature in Maps – helping you navigate cities and motorways – come to this pre-installed app.
