iPhone SE (2022) will apparently still look like something from 2017

Vlad, 06 January 2022

In early 2021, some rumors talked about the next iPhone SE having a more modern-looking design. Now, though, through an 'update' to one such rumor, we're told that actually the iPhone SE (2022) will have the same design as the iPhone SE (2020), which in fact reused the design of the iPhone 8 from 2017.

That's definitely going to look out of place in the mobile world this year, with practically all phones, including budget blowers, settling for the 'all-screen' look. The new iPhone SE will have none of that, though. Then again, iPhone SE buyers don't seem to care how outdated their device's design is, as long as it remains the cheapest iPhone to get, they'll get it - for that reason. Oh, and this time around, there will be 5G built-in too.

It's probably Apple's strangest mobile product, the iPhone SE, with its two-year refresh cycle (unheard of elsewhere, even in Apple's own portfolio) - and those refreshes only 'refresh' something in the design department every other generation, as in - every four years! But, again, none of this matters, people are going to keep buying the iPhone SE because it's the only cheap iPhone.

In 2024, by the way, the iPhone SE should get a design reminiscent of the iPhone XR and iPhone 11, only with a slightly smaller screen size. It won't get Face ID, but will allegedly come with a Touch ID sensor embedded in the power button. A full two years from now, you'll get such amazing innovations on the iPhone SE. Worth the wait? You be the judge.

Many people think of a phone pragmatically, If you use a hair drier you never question if it looks 2007 or not, you just use it when you need it and forget about it when you don't. Such people won't have a problem with the SE, the thin...
