The 4″ iPhone SE, based on the chassis of the iPhone 4 and 5 series, looks to be getting a significant update as soon as early as next month. The news is exciting for those who love the compact iPhone SE as it hasn’t been updated since 2016. While there is as much rumor as anything around the 2nd generation SE, it does look like a few things seem to be pretty solid.
First, spec-wise, it looks like the new SE is going to be powered by the Apple A10 SoC. That is the generation found in the iPhone 7 series and a significant bump up in speed, performance and power consumption over the current SE’s A9 SoC. It also looks like that the 3.5mm headphone jack is going to go the way of the Dodo. Instead, it will have the same headphones that were introduced with the iPhone 7 series which connect via the lightening connector.
