Second Edition? Smallish Edition? Stimulus Edition? We’re not sure what “SE” stands for this time, but it wouldn’t be an iPhone teardown without a little mystery. And this 2020 iPhone SE is certainly $400 worth of smartphone conundrum—delightfully old-school on the outside, and purportedly pretty modern on the inside. Fortunately our money is already spent, so you get to follow along for free. Let’s tear down Apple’s … newest … iPhone.

  1. The SEquel to the popular budget-friendly iPhone has finally arrived. It's been called a "parts bin" phone, and we hope that's true! The specs certainly seem to agree: A13 Bionic SoC with a third-generation Neural Engine—straight outta the iPhone 11/Pro/Max 4.7” Retina HD display with 1334 × 750 resolution (326 ppi), True Tone, and wide color gamut (P3) support—as seen in the iPhone 8
    • The SEquel to the popular budget-friendly iPhone has finally arrived. It's been called a "parts bin" phone, and we hope that's true! The specs certainly seem to agree:

    • A13 Bionic SoC with a third-generation Neural Engine—straight outta the iPhone 11/Pro/Max

    • 4.7” Retina HD display with 1334 × 750 resolution (326 ppi), True Tone, and wide color gamut (P3) support—as seen in the iPhone 8

    • 12 MP wide-angle rear camera at ƒ/1.8, and a 7 MP ƒ/2.2 front-facing camera—reportedly borrowed either from the iPhone 8, or the XR

    • Gigabit-class LTE with 2x2 MIMO and 802.11ax Wi‑Fi 6 with 2x2 MIMO + Bluetooth 5.0 + NFC—as found in the iPhone 11

    • Home button with 2nd-generation Touch ID sensor—again returning from iPhone 8

    • IP67 dust/water ingress rating—not hailing from any particular iPhone, but an unexpectedly nice inclusion at this price point.

  2. Size matters not. That said, let's have an iPhone-measuring contest. First, It's SE 2016 vs SE 2020 in a matchup no one was expecting. The new SE wins the measuring contest, but the 2016 SE wins the headphone jack contest by a mile.

    • The new SE wins the measuring contest, but the 2016 SE wins the headphone jack contest by a mile.

    • This phone has been called an iPhone 8 (black) with the innards of an iPhone 11 (green). We'll see about that.

    • The new SE is only slightly smaller than the 11 Pro, but what you really notice is the weight difference—the SE is 21% lighter than the 11 Pro.

  3. Before a teardown, you can always count on us to kick the tires. (Fortunately, it won't cost us $700 this time.) We'll wheel it over to the teardown table in a moment, but first we submit the SE for X-ray inspection—courtesy of our clever friends at Creative Electron—along with its predecessors, the original SE (left) and iPhone 8 (center).

    • If you can spot any major internal differences from the iPhone 8, your eyes are sharper than ours. Apart from some very subtle antenna rework and moving a few chips around the logic board, we can't tell what Apple's been up to yet.

    • What we expected to see here were changes to the antenna layout to drive the new gigabit LTE (MIMO) and/or Wi-Fi 6 features. On the iPhone XS, the new breaks in the frame were very noticeable over the X. Not so with the SE and 8.

    Is the antenna in a different spot? Is it where the logo is? The reason I ask, is I just got the new SE phone, but the new SE case doesn’t show the logo, as it just matches the 8 location, so I’m worried the antenna is blocked by the new cover.

    Mike Bartholomay - Yanıt

    Hi Mike!

    Unless your case is metallic, you don’t need to worry! There are no antennas near the center of the back cover—that’s where the wireless charging coil resides.

  4. New iPhone, same opening procedure. Pentalobes? Gone. Heat? Applied. iSclack? Sclacking. Opening just one iPhone is a little overdone, so why not try two? We'll keep the iPhone 8 comparison going and see just how similar these phones are. If the similarities are more than superficial, you might even be able to repair an iPhone SE using iPhone 8 parts—or vice versa. With both phones open, they certainly look like doppelgängers.

    • Backward-compatible or cross-compatible parts could be a real boon for third-party repair now that OEM repair is less certain than ever.

  5. Our testing shows that the Taptic Engine and main speaker are interchangeable between the 8 and SE! That means fewer parts to hunt down and cheaper replacements, which is a win for everyone involved. Turning to the battery, the capacity is the same as in the iPhone 8, ringing in at 6.96 Wh. That's up slightly from the original SE's 6.21 Wh, and much lower than the (much larger) iPhone 11's 11.91 Wh.

    • When Apple retired 3D Touch in the iPhone 11 Pro series, they made the displays a bit thinner and batteries a bit thicker. The new SE also lacks 3D Touch, but the batteries are the exact same size. What was the sacrifice for?

    • Answer: Probably to save money and hit that sweet $399 price point.

    • Alternative answer: Apple wants us to forget that 3D Touch ever happened. We remember.

    • Unfortunately, though the batteries match in size and capacity, the connector has changed—meaning that batteries cannot be swapped between models, unlike the other components seen here.

    The connector mis-match issue is likely something that the aftermarket parts manufacturers will fix in the coming months/years. The fix should be fairly straightforward if all else is the same.

    Matt Zieminski - Yanıt

    so… lower power battery on a newer, faster processor. What does this mean for total run time?

    Can you test and post results? BTW, Great job.

    Nick - Yanıt

    iOS 13 doesn’t use 3D Touch anymore, even on older phones that still have the hardware. Why still include it in a phone that only runs iOS 13?

  7. Pop goes the main camera. Where does it come from? Half the rumors say iPhone 8, half say XR, and a third half say something else. That's way too many halves, so let's settle it with an old-fashioned lineup. Left: iPhone SE. Middle: iPhone 8. Right: iPhone XR. One thing's for sure, the SE's image sensor is physically smaller than that in the XR. It's probably an iPhone 8 sensor benefitting from A13 image processing.

    • Postscript: Our tests show the iPhone 8 camera works just fine in the SE, and vice versa.

    Would be interesting to see a comparison of photos taken by an SE using an 8’s camera vs. the included camera.

    David - Yanıt

    The specs really should be compared apples to apples (pun intended). If there is any advantage in the iPhone SE to the iPhone 8, or vice versa, it gives DIYers a reason to upgrade specs in a device to keep it running with the latest technology. Even if there’s no practical spec increase to be had it may be worth it just for the sake of efficiencies that Apple developed in the iPhone SE hardware release.

    Matt Zieminski - Yanıt

    • If you had to fix a phone in isolation and could only bring one thing with you, what would it be?

    • If you answered, "a Pro Tech Toolkit," you deserve a high five, from six feet away of course.

    • Sometimes when tearing down iPhones, we get a little board. Like this one!

    • Scratch that—two boards. The one with the blazing fast A13 chip belongs to the SE, though it looks like someone accidentally put it on upside-down... Let's see what else we can spot on this board.

  10. Back to that 3D Touch-less display—we expected to find a slight but measurable difference in thinness, but it sure doesn't look that way from here. The iPhone 8 display (left) looks pretty much identical to the SE's (right). Are they secretly the same? Not so fast! On 3D Touch screens, we'd normally find a chip on the back that drives the parallel plate capacitors (as seen in our 6S teardown). The iPhone SE display (on the right in this photo) doesn’t have that chip, just a blank window where the chip would be. And the layer of capacitors? We start peeling off display parts in an attempt to confirm...

    • Confirmed. No 3D Touch.

    • On the bright side, the two displays are functionally interchangeable, which is kind of amazing considering the difference in hardware—the 8 display works on the SE, and vice versa.

    • Before you get any ideas about adding 3D Touch to your new iPhone SE though, we tried it, and it doesn't work.

    Again a reference back to the merits of “upgrade” for the sake of efficiencies. If the iPhone SE has a better processor, and the parts are redesigned for 2020 but work the same with the iPhone 8 models, it stands to reason that inputting the older components in the newer device will result in some reduction on processing intensity and thereby battery life gains.

    Matt Zieminski - Yanıt

    As processing power per consumed energy unit increases with nearly every generation, I think it is more likely to see longer battery life on the SE while performing the same tasks while running the same iOS.

    Flo -

    A little surprised the displays are interchangeable, but not too much. Out of desperation we once put an iPhone 7 display on an iPhone 8 (may have been a plus model, can’t remember) and it actually worked just fine, minus the brackets mounting the assembly into the body of the phone being different.

    Ben Heinisch - Yanıt

    I wanted 3D Touch so bad and I wondered if it’ll work or not and this is the only source I find thank you iFixit! :(

    But if you put iphone 8 screen on the SE, does haptic touch work?

    • Another inside-out perspective on the new SE.

  11. It was great to go back to the good ol' days of 2017. The nostalgia factor is off the charts with this one!
    • It was great to go back to the good ol' days of 2017. The nostalgia factor is off the charts with this one!

    • For a fuller list of parts that are cross-compatible with the iPhone 8, check out our parts testing blog post.

    • We’re pretty thrilled that Apple Frankensteined this phone together with parts from previous models. Replacement parts should be easier to find—and re-using the existing manufacturing lines produces less waste overall.

    • Apple didn’t have to give the SE their newest A13 Bionic chip—but they did, guaranteeing that this phone lasts for many years to come.

    • Before we settle on a score, we'd like to announce the winner of our iPhone SE 2020 giveaway. Drumroll please... congratulations to Elliott Kinsey!

    • We'll make sure to send you that extra iPhone we ordered, and not this one that we tore down... Probably.

    It’s cool to see that parts are backwards (and in some cases forward) compatible, but we really need a more thorough run through the paces of the key features the define the iPhone SE from the iPhone 5S of yesterday. Technical deep dives into the Touch ID hardware, the parts’ demand on the A13 vs the older processor, etc. would be cool to look at.

  12. Son Düşünceler
    • The two most commonly replaced components, display and battery, remain straightforward to access with the proper knowledge and tools.
    • Most components are modular and independently replaceable, including many that are cross-compatible with iPhone 8.
    • IP67 seals complicate repair, but make the need for difficult liquid damage repairs less likely.
    • While the overall construction is pretty repair-friendly, you’ll still need up to four different driver types for many repairs.
    • The fragile glass back is impractical to replace.

Can one put an iPhone 8 internals into an iphone se housing??

Sever2001 - Yanıt

Yeah. iPhone 7 ones as well, I think.

Mateja Miloradović -

Definitely looks closest to identical to the iPhone 8 camera sensor, and the XR sensor is definitely ruled out at this point. Wonder if the optics are any changed, or if it’s just straight up the iPhone 8 camera with the A13 enhancing images with smart HDR 2.

tipoo - Yanıt

I wouldn’t think so, I would like to imagine that they already spent a good amount of time tweaking the sensor before it went in the iPhone 8 and further tweaking the same platform would be mostly wasted time. My guess is they are just using the A13 chip to provide any improvements. That is just a guess though, will probably have to just wait for someone to swap the sensor into an 8 and see if there are any noticeable improvements.

Ben Heinisch -

How works now home button? There is no 3D Touch layer, and also no hardware switch on it.

Adam Krůžela - Yanıt

It works the same as the iPhone 8 and 7 home buttons. It is a separate component that controls the home button than 3D touch

Zach Heaton -

3D Touch module is in the screen, while all the home button drivers are on the button or logic board

iliketurtuls -

Great job! Still on a 6s, just don’t see a reason for me, personally, to upgrade to the SE.

john - Yanıt

just switched last month from a combo iphone 6s+/iphone SE first to iPhone 11/iPhone SE 2020 and can confirm that the new SE its a beast compared even to 6s+ which it’s somehow more powerful then the small 6s

leartzajmi -

you can see that cameras have diferent codes

Dan Danilescu - Yanıt

I can’t think of any reason to change from our two original 32 GB SE’s. Bought new two years for $130 and they do everything we need.

The most important thing, for us, is that they allow us to make phone calls and text messages. Any pictures we take are fine for the purpose and if we want superb photos we use a camera.

Yes, we did think about upgrading but the thrill went away, especially when we found out the it was glass on both sides.

3237daw - Yanıt

It’s a great little phone. My only complaint after having mine nearly a week is that it eats up the battery pretty quick, much faster than my 11 pro max. I’ve also noticed some wifi sensitivity issues, meaning where one phone can still get a decent signal at the fringe of the signal, my SE gave up trying until I moved closer.

Dennis Ramsey - Yanıt

As far as cost-cutting measures go, it's both interesting and strange that Apple kept the extra steel backplate riveted to the LCD that makes the screen more rigid for pressure sensing. You’d think Apple would manufacture the SE’s screen like the iPhone 6’s; with only a foil layer for the backlight. The iPhone 6S’s screen assembly was a fraction of a millimetre thicker than the 6’s, cutting the battery down from 1810 mAh to 1750 mAh.

Apple probably did the math and found that it was cheaper to leave the iPhone 8’s tooling as-is rather than redesigning to make the screen more like the iPhone 6. Raw material cost-wise though, surely two steel backplates costs more than one?

vantt1 - Yanıt

Cheaper to change just the cable instead of the frame design i guess. It is adhered to the back panel, rather than being a different metal piece, costing them less money to make. It is kind of funny seeing that it makes no difference other than having a metal back on the screen for pressure. But also remember that the XR and 11 have a metal back too, so it might be for heat dissipation (which is HEAVILY NEEDED. playing pubg for 10 minutes results in a hot a dim SE)

iliketurtuls -

iWant to throw away all my iThings because iFeel they are overpriced and not so pretty. I had to use Vinyl to make them look good enough.

Mike Sandorsky - Yanıt

So it’s the more reparable iDevice buyable “new” actually ? :D

snoid2 - Yanıt

Rice got stuck in my charging port and i stuck and smushed all the way in the back how much will it be to get fixed or is there anyway to get that out by your self?

Can you put a SIM card tray from the 8 in the se?

tarboxjanet - Yanıt

Yes! The SIM trays are compatible.

I have the 1st gen SE (i love the size) but i bought the new 2020 SE but i havent started it up yet. My worry is in regards to the placement of the cellular antenna compared to one another and even compared to a 6s. I live in the woods and my 1st gen SE is the only phone in the house that gets LTE signal (in certain windows). I dont want to start the new one up and have my service auto switch just to have no signal. A family member has a 6s that gets no signal at all with same service provider ( only verizon out here) is what i have to compare to.

Kira Cochran - Yanıt

How many screws are there on the entire iPhone?

david sabbah - Yanıt

I think the iPhone SE 2nd gen price dropped $100
