Apple iPhone SE 2 rumored to feature glass back for wireless charging capabilities

A new report published today says that the Apple iPhone SE 2, the rumored sequel to the iPhone SE, will come with some new features. The model is said to include a glass back so that it can offer optional wireless charging to users of the device. This would allow the lower priced model to join the three 2017 iPhone units, all of which have glass backs and support wireless charging.

On China’s weibo messaging board, someone posted an image that claims to show several back panels belonging to the iPhone SE 2. Also in that picture, you can see a document that refers to the back panels as being …


Apple gets warrant to turn over files inside Texas church shooter's iPhone SE

Back near the beginning of the month, Apple reportedly spoke with the FBI about unlocking the iPhone that belonged to Texas church shooter Devin Patrick Kelley. As we told you back on November 8th, Apple told the FBI that after the shooter had died of a self-inflicted gunshot, the law enforcement agency could have still used the fingers from his hands to activate Touch ID and open the phone.

Today, Texas authorities served Apple with a search warrant, seeking information on the files inside Kelley’s phones. The iPhone was discovered on Kelley after the gunman was killed with his own weapon. …

Next-generation iPhone SE now expected to arrive in Q1 2018, India will get it first

iPhone SE had an unexpected success among Apple fans mainly due to the lower price compared to other iPhones, but also for retaining the traditional smaller display. Unsurprisingly, an updated iPhone SE is expected to be launched by Apple in the coming months.

Unfortunately, fans of the iconic device waiting to be able to buy the phone this year might be disappointed to hear the next-generation iPhone SE won’t be coming anytime soon. Although a report last month claimed Apple could introduce a new iPhone SE model as early as August, new information surfaced recently …

Did you love the iPhone SE? Well, sorry, it won't be refreshed, analyst says

The iPhone SE was an odd cookie of a smartphone —in a time when everyone was looking to make 5.5-inch flagships, Apple actually stopped for a second, looked back and said “Hey, guys, there are people back there who don’t want to upgrade to a bigger smartphone… let’s make a handset for them!”. And that’s how the legend of the SE starts. It was a smartphone with the exact physical proportions of the iPhone 5s, but chock-full with Apple’s latest hardware on board, giving it a nice camera upgrade and the ability to use Apple Pay.

Sure, the SE is not in some sort of super demand, but its sales …

Results: would you like to see a new iPhone SE?

Well, WWDC’s opening keynote is behind us and, just as we suspected, the iPhone SE line didn’t see a refresh. While this doesn’t mean that the device is dead for sure, the industry’s love for larger displays makes the SE’s future much more ambiguous. Especially with today’s tech being able to cram huge screens into relatively tiny bodies, we can’t be 100% certain that we will see another incarnation of Apple’s super-pocketable handset in the future.

But then again, the iPhone SE was sort of designed for the slow upgraders — the people who don’t mind sticking with older tech as long as it’s …

Supposed iPhone SE (2017) leak shows off Ion-X glass rear shell

A newly leaked photo, depicting what could be the back of a next-gen iPhone SE, started making rounds online, offering some interesting, albeit unverified, tidbits of information regarding a supposed new “special edition” iPhone.

Originating from Chinese microblogging website and smartphone leak heaven Weibo, the photo shows four glass back panels, each with two vertically aligned cutouts (one for a camera lens, the other – for an LED flash module) placed on top of some paperwork.

If the leak is legitimate, it could mean that Apple has decided to ditch the …
