For example, the new iPhone SE’s 4.7-inch 1334 x 750 pixel display comes from the iPhone 8, while its f/1.8 12-megapixel wide-angle rear camera and f/2.2 7-megapixel front-facing camera is borrowed from either the iPhone 8 or the iPhone XR. Unfortunately, the display doesn’t feature 3D Touch, according to iFixit.
“Before you get any ideas about adding 3D touch to your new iPhone SE though, we tried it, and it doesn’t work,” said iFixit.
Further, as expected, the Home Button comes from the iPhone 8.
On the other hand, the SE’s A13 Bionic chip is sourced from the iPhone 11, iPhone Pro and iPhone Pro Max. The iPhone SE’s gigabit-class LTE with 2×2 MIMO and 802.11ax Wi‑Fi 6 with 2×2 MIMO + Bluetooth 5.0 + NFC, also comes from the iPhone 11 series.
As far as repairability goes, this is good news given that many of the new iPhone SE’s replacement parts are already readily available.
I’ve been generally impressed with Apple’s new iPhone SE. While the phone features a design that unfortunately feels old in 2020, it’s internal hardware, including the smartphone’s A13 processor and new upgraded camera, are excellent.
