For most people looking to buy an iPhone, the choice lies between two main iPhones: SE and 13. This article evaluates both of these in detail to help you decide which one is more suitable for you.

Apple iPhone SE (2022)

This is the most affordable option, so iPhone SE is the one for you for those not looking to spend too much on the phone! Externally, you will not be able to spot any differences from its 2020 model. It still has a compact 4.7-inch LCD screen with a physical home button, thick bezels around the screen, and Touch ID. There’s no MagSafe accessory system either, and the headphone jack remains nonexistent.

However, the difference from its predecessor lies in the internal buildup. It contains the same A15 Bionic processor as the iPhone 13 models. So, you will be getting a lot of power for such a small price. Regardless, it is more than capable of running the most demanding games, and the battery life is also quite remarkable; it will last you a day’s use without having to recharge.

Apple iPhone 13

This is the most common choice for people out there. Unlike the Pro models, iPhone 13 has a good value for money for the features it has to offer. It also incorporates a few elements from the iPhone 12 Pro models, including sensor-shift stabilization on the main camera to correct your shaky hands, 128 gigabytes of base storage instead of the 64 it offered, and a 6.1-inch OLED screen. The phone’s new features include Cinematic mode, which merges Portrait mode with video and adds a blur effect around your subject, and generally, improved cameras. Their broad and ultrawide features take in more light, producing sharper and brighter nighttime shots.
