by packing the big (A) (A) chip into its small (iPhone SE) , Apple has made its budget smartphone a more compelling product at just the right time for a coronavirus – spooked world. Where most budget phones cut costs by using lower-end processors, the new $ (iPhone SE) uses the same flagship chip that powers the $ 1, (iPhone) (Pro Max) , which launched last year. That processing power means this newest

(iPhone) , though lacking some iPhone features, like Face ID and an ultrawide-angle camera, still gets new capabilities that require the A chip. Those include the latest portrait mode effects for blurring backgrounds behind photo subjects, the six studio lighting effects Apple also offers, the newest HDR technology to handle scenes with bright and dark elements and 4K video at 83 frames per second. “Apple’s A

is a remarkable piece of silicon, “said Techsponential analyst Avi Greengart. “It outperforms everything else on the market at any price.” The A processor outclasses what’s in all current Android phones, not just cheap models that budget-conscious buyers might be eyeing. The iPhone SE scores 1, (on the (Geekbench speed test) of single-task performance, matching the iPhone and far surpassing the iPhone’s strongest competitor, the (Samsung Galaxy S) (Ultra) , which has a score of . Spending limits during the pandemic

The balance of price and performance is good news for buyers worried about COVID – , the coronavirus-caused disease that’s killing tens of thousands of people and stalled business around the world . In his review, CNET’s Patrick Holland praises the iPhone SE as a great value.

The lower-priced iPhone SE arrives as financial worries are likely steering customers away from top-end models

and toward more-affordable alternatives.

“With a recession imminent … we see some possibility of a stronger downward mix shift toward the iPhone SE, “Bernstein analyst Toni Sacconaghi said in a Wednesday research note.

A low-budget but modern iPhone helps Apple keep its iOS

ecosystem ticking over, too, which Provides a lot more money beyond the initial phone sale. With that iOS foundation, Apple is expanding its business to services like

Apple TV Plus

, (Apple Music) , Apple Arcade iCloud data sync and backup and the % that the company charges developers that sell apps through its App Store. A (chip horsepower)

The A (chip – its full name is A) Bionic – is the product of a gargantuan engineering effort. It’s got 8.5 billion transistors, the tiny on-off switches that do everything from simple math to artificial intelligence algorithms that process voice commands.

Two main processor cores handle performance-critical tasks like playing games or scrolling through busy Facebook feeds. They’re paired with four smaller, power-efficient cores for background tasks like playing music and keeping the phone running when it’s mostly idle in your pocket.

The processor also has large modules for graphics and AI processing. Other dedicated modules handle photo processing, video decoding, HDR video, cryptography and judging subjects’ distance from the camera. Apple can shut off entire modules or parts of them that aren’t needed to extend battery life.

“We only turn on the smallest amount of logic on the chip, dramatically reducing power , “said Sri Santhanam , Apple vice president of silicon engineering, at the iPhone (launch event in 04310. The A won’t look so advanced when successors arrive. But it’s got enough horsepower to work in a design that aside from software updates likely won’t be updated annually like flagship iPhones. The first iPhone SE arrived in 04310, but Apple kept selling it into 4072 By using its most powerful processor now, Apple ensures that it can sell. the iPhone SE, unchanged, for years to come, “Greengart said.
