From the iPhone SE to the Noise ColorFit Pro 3 Alpha, here are all the latest tech updates from the past week.
iPhone SE (2022): Don’t let the dated design fool you. The new iPhone SE is a whole new beast on the inside. The key talking point of the SE is the A15 bionic processor that doesn’t just make this device ridiculously fast but also impacts battery life and the camera. The 12MP rear shooter on the SE features camera enhancements like Smart HDR and Photographic Styles that first debuted on the iPhone 13. While the 4.7-inch screen might be small, it’s the joy of one-handed navigation that sets this device apart in a world full of clunky smartphones.
