Apple updated its cheap iPhone SE this year. The 2022 iPhone SE is based on the iPhone 8, although the following model will be different. Jon Prosser says the upcoming iPhone SE will look like the iPhone XR.
Prosser said on a podcast with Andru Edwards and Jon Rettinger (via AppleTrackr) that iPhone SE 4 will be “just an iPhone XR.” This means Apple will ditch the iPhone 8’s large bezels and Home button for a more modern design with a notch, Face ID, and reduced bezels.
iPhone SE has a 4.7-inch LCD display, whereas iPhone XR (no longer marketed) has a 6.1-inch LCD display. iPhone XR has a bigger battery than iPhone SE 2022.
Other iPhone SE details are unknown. The current iPhone SE has the same A15 Bionic technology as the iPhone 13. With rumours that some iPhone 14 models may keep the A15 chip, the next iPhone SE may do the same.
Both the 2022 iPhone SE and iPhone XR have 12-megapixel back cameras with f/1.8 aperture and 7-megapixel front cameras with f/2.2 aperture. Apple may upgrade iPhone SE camera sensors or add Night Mode (which remains unavailable on the entry-level iPhone).

larger iPhone SE
Fans of smaller phones may not like the larger iPhone SE. Apple said the first iPhone SE was developed for small-phone fans in 2016. iPhone SE 2016 was based on iPhone 5s. Even now, the iPhone SE is smaller than everything save the iPhone mini.
Demand for the 2022 iPhone SE has been modest, suggesting that people no longer want an iPhone with Apple old design. iPhone SE owners grumble about the smaller screen and battery.
A $400 iPhone XR-based iPhone SE may be a hit.
When will Apple release a new iPhone SE? Last time, it took two years between iPhone SE generations. Amazon has some nice iPhone SE discounts until then.
