Apple's new iPhone SE has a BIG secret that could save you money

APPLE'S latest iPhone has a bit of extra juice under the bonnet – an upgrade that could save you money in the long run.

According to MacRumors, the third-generation iPhone SE, which was unveiled by the US tech titan on Tuesday, is packed with 4GB of RAM.

It's the most memory ever offered in an iPhone SE – Apple's cheaper and less-powerful iPhone range.

In addition to improving the mobile's performance, the upgrade also makes it more future-proof than its predecessors.

That's because it makes the SE 2022 more capable of handling iOS updates years into the future.

Random Access Memory (RAM) handles your system's short-term data storage.

It's where your phone remembers everything running on it, such as apps, browsers, the operating system and more.

Higher RAM generally means your device can handle more intensive tasks and performs well under strain.

As Apple releases new versions of iOS – the iPhone's operating system – it makes it more complicated and adds new features.

This requires more RAM to run smoothly – and is the reason iPhone models with lower RAM are eventually excluded from updates.

Because the new iPhone SE has 4GB of RAM, it's more likely to receive updates many years into the future.

This could in turn save you cash as you potentially won't need to upgrade your phone as frequently as if you'd bought an older model.

The second-generation iPhone SE, which launched in 2020, came with 3GB of RAM – a full 25 per cent less than the newer version.

Apple launched the third-generation iPhone SE in stores around the world today after unveiling the device on Tuesday.

Apple said the gadget keeps some of the features from its flagship iPhone 13 range but at a much lower price.

It comes with 5G connectivity and the same A15 Bionic chip the tech giant put in the iPhone 13 when it announced it last year.

But in contrast to Apple's flagship phone, which started at £679 when announced last September, the new iPhone SE starts at £419.

The iPhone SE is the only iPhone to still come with a home button and Apple's Touch ID fingerprint sensor.

Ben Wood, industry expert and chief analyst at CCS Insight, said it was "perfect for consumers who are not interested in the bells and whistles on more expensive iPhones but love Apple's user experience and apps".
