iPhone SE brings Continuity to 2020 iPhone Lineup

by birtanpublished on April 18, 2021

I discovered how interesting it was that just with one move Apple made yesterday which was discontinuing the iPhone 8 and 8 plus and by introducing the new iPhone se they were able to bring a whole lot more consistency to the entire lineup for 20/20 which of course is going to stay that way for like five months and then it'll change again but either way I thought I could explain those in today's video and dive into some points I missed about the iPhone se yesterday because I was so focused on getting up that video fast because of course I am speed unless it comes to closing my activity rings in which case I'm like a snail but let's

Begin okay so there's a few things that died yesterday right so the iPhone 8 and 8 plus they were great phones very very practical and a lot of people enjoyed them but the iPhone se kind of replaced both in a lot of good ways so one thing to mention is that while a lot of people may compare the iPhone 8 camera and say okay it's the 10r basically it's really only like the 10r because it has the same software advantages so the camera hardware and sensor in the iPhone se are the same hardware that are in the iPhone 8 the only difference is it's now being powered by the a13 chip which does

Enable some software features we've never seen Apple brought before which was very easy to sweep under the rug because I even missed it in yesterday's video which is that portrait mode is not just on the rear-facing camera I know it just works with people but they also added portrait mode to the front-facing camera as well and before the iPhone se came out pretty much any device out there that had portrait mode on the front-facing camera had to have the true depth camera system so even though the iPhone 8 had you know a 11 chip pretty powerful it was still not capable of

Doing portrait mode on the front-facing camera because you know Apple kept saying like if you want to do portrait mode on the front you're gonna need those face ID sensors we have it on the iPad Pro which of course has face ID and we've had it on the 10 are the 11 and of course all the pro iPhones which all have the face ID sensors the iPhone se is the first iPhone ever to not have those true depth camera systems in place and still get portrait mode on the front and that is only thanks to the capabilities of the a 13 chip you know obviously we're not the guys who

Designed the software in the architecture so it's possible they could have developed a version you know iPhones with the a11 chip but this is the first time it's like in house from Apple allowing you know the different portrait mode lighting shots and I'm sure there's some third-party apps that could bring portrait mode tip phones that don't have it but at least from Apple this is the first time they've said hey this phone only has one camera on the front no true depth camera system only one camera on the back and both of them have portrait mode which is

Kind of crazy but the way it makes the iPhone lineup way more consistent is the fact that now every single iPhone Apple sells new not counting certified refurbished are those discontinued phones but every iPhone they offer new it now supports portrait mode on the front and back another thing that completely died yesterday is 3d touch yeah if you looked at the iPhone lineup last week you would realize that the iPhone 8 and 8 plus were the only iPhone still rockin 3d touch hardware which has been removed from the iPhone se and I know this is kind of a sad thing for a

Lot of people but it helps with consistency between iOS continuity on iPad and iPhone the fact that everything has been moved to haptic touch so from the cheapest iphone the SE all the way up to the 11pro max haptic touch is now default that's now the standard all of them still have lightning all of them default with 64 gigabytes and all of them have kind of that same curved edges design which we've had since the iPhone 6 but yeah absolutely expect that to change later this year once we finally get that squared off design to come back but you can tell

Apple was trying their best to like unify the lineup so it's less confusing so people are like wait what's 3d touch or wait which phone gets portrait mode okay the eight plus gets portrait mode on the back but not on the front and the regular iPhone eight doesn't get portrait mode at all no the iPhone se is literally targeted at being a replacement for anyone who bought an iPhone 8 plus or anything lower than that so whether it was an 8 7 plus 7 or lower that's what Apple compares it to directly I thought it was kind of an

Interesting site of their site how they were like whichever phone you have right now select from this list and then the list of benefits we provide beneath will change depending on which phone you put into the website so they're showcasing people that even if you have an iPhone 8 from 2017 there's a significant number of upgrades you get along with the SE but in case there were some people out there concerned about hey this has a forehead this has a chin this is a dated design this thing shouldn't be here why is this 20:20 it's because it's targeted at

People that have not upgraded their phones in the past couple years that's why it's $400 and also I don't think it's admitting that the flagship iPhones are overpriced because Apple launched a recycled design with updated internals way back in March of 2016 where the price of their flagship phones were not what they are today but it was still 400 bucks so the point is as several other youtubers have said Apple isn't making iPhones more expensive they're making more expensive iPhones because they're doing more they're gaining more capabilities than they have in the past

Which is why they cost more but at the same time they want to continue to provide those budget options that provide people with lots and lots of years of software support lots and lots of longevity for people to take advantage of when they don't want to upgrade their phone that regularly which is why I think it's reasonable to assume that the S II is probably gonna sell pretty well because it's kind of the phone for everyone's dad I don't know how relatable that is but I've just seen so many people saying like yeah my dad would definitely get

That and I'm in the same boat next time I see my dad I'm gonna be like hey you got a 6s plus yeah you should you should switch to this thing because I recall handing my 11 pro max to my father and showing him how it worked and he was like wait how do I get to the home screen I'm let you got a swipe up on this one and he's like oh my god why do they have to keep changing these things and I'm like hey s E is perfect you know that's the phone for everyone who hates phones but has to get a new one it especially brings that $400 price tag down when people are gonna be trading in

Their old sevens or sixes making it even more affordable than it already is which just makes a whole lot of sense to me and I think there's gonna be a lot of people that are glad to buy it and they're gonna use it for a long long time my sister still uses the original iPhone se and more than likely she'll switch to this phone once she's ready to upgrade so anywho let me know what you guys think if the iPhone se was a big disappointment or does this make a whole lot of sense for a whole lot of people feel free to hit me up over on Twitter join my disscourn we can talk more about

The iPhone lineup as it currently stands today this is your option appear and I want to get the white iPhone se cuz it looks great but I feel bad not getting the red one because it supports the pen dammit so I'll see you in the next one
