When was the iPhone SE 2022 released?

The 2022 edition of Apple’s iPhone SE was released during Apple’s March 2022 launch event and was available for purchase from Friday 18th March. The event showcased many of the company’s other innovations, including the iPhone 13’s green finish, Apple’s new iPad with M1 chip, the Apple Mac Studio desktop, and Apple TV’s partnership with the MLB for pre-game and post-game broadcasts.

How much does an iPhone SE 2022 cost?

The 2022 iPhone SE costs $429 for the 64GB edition (or $17.87 per month for 24 months), $479 for the 128GB (or $19.95 per month for 24 months), and $579 for the 256 GB (or $24.12 per month for 24 months), plus tax. It is available in three colors: midnight, starlight and (PRODUCT)RED, all of which have the same price. If you purchase the phone in (PRODUCT)RED, a portion of the purchase price is donated to the Global Fund to Fight COVID-19. The price is the same on Apple’s website whether you buy the phone on a plan from a carrier partner, like AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, or Verizon, or choose to buy the phone outright ( or funded) and connect with your carrier after the fact.

Other retailers are currently selling the iPhone SE at similar prices with different financing options. Buy it at Best Buy, for example, with one of these four carriers for $429.99 for the 64GB version, $479.99 for the 128GB version, or $579.99. Financing options are comparable to those offered on Apple’s website, and you can also choose to add AppleCare+ for the same price.

Is the iPhone SE 2022 waterproof?

Yes, the iPhone SE 2022 has an IP67 waterproof rating, which is the highest level of protection. The IP67 rating indicates protection against dust and airborne particles as well as water and liquids. According to Apple, the phone can be submerged in up to one meter of water for around 30 minutes. Keep in mind that, as with any electrical device, you should be careful with water with high levels of chlorine as well as salt water, which can impact the operation of the device. IP67 ratings refer to fresh water sources. Bottom line: If you dunk your phone in the pool or get it wet in the shower or relaxing on the beach, it should be fine. He can also survive the dreaded accidental fall in the toilet!

How big is the iPhone SE 2022?

The iPhone SE 2022, like the first iteration of the phone, is much smaller than other iPhones with a 4.7-inch screen. The compact smartphone is ultra-thin at just 7.3mm and weighs just 5.08 ounces.

What is AppleCare+ coverage?

AppleCare+ is basically an insurance plan and extended warranty for the iPhone (and other Apple products). The plan provides coverage for damage, defects, and, with the upgrade plan, even loss or theft. Basic AppleCare+ hardware and software coverage includes 24/7 priority access to Apple experts if you need help with the device, Apple-certified repairs using genuine Apple parts, coverage for device (including any battery-related issues) and accidental damage protection. The plan also includes up to two incidents of accidental damage protection each year; however, such incidents may be subject to a service fee or deductible.

For even more protection, you can upgrade to AppleCare+ with Theft and Loss, which includes all of the above, plus up to two incidents of Theft and Loss coverage each year. For coverage to be active, you must have Find My iPhone turned on on the device at the time it is reported lost or stolen and it must remain associated with your Apple ID throughout the claims process. If you choose to turn off Find My iPhone, this will void all coverage.

How much does AppleCare+ cost?

Basic AppleCare+ hardware and software coverage costs $79 or $3.99 per month, while upgraded AppleCare+ with theft and loss costs $149 or $7.49 per month. You can pay for it in full when you buy the phone or have the amount added to your monthly bill.

Is AppleCare+ coverage worth it?

We’ve found that AppleCare+, effectively an insurance plan for your phone, not necessarily worth the price of admission since phones lose value over time and most people probably won’t need the included coverage until the phone is ready to be replaced anyway. Even if you have an untimely accident, there are third-party Apple-certified repair centers worth considering. There is also Apple Self-Service Repair Program with the tools and instructions to fix a minor problem yourself if you wish. That said, those who are particularly accident-prone, use their phone in risky situations like on a construction site, or for young children with slippery fingers, AppleCare+ has value for added peace of mind and protection.
