The brand new iPhone SE is officially out and it comes with an iPhone 8 body with an iPhone 11 Pro brain. But it's a lot more than just an iPhone 8S or 9 with just an internal spec bump. The powerful A13 Bionic chipset transforms the telephone and brings new features nothing you've seen prior seen on a 4.7-inch iPhone ($699 at Apple). 

The mixture of old design and new power means you can unlock the brand new SE with Touch ID, which is handy now that face masks certainly are a must. You additionally have the processing capacity to support future iOS software updates longer than an iPhone 8, with its 2-and-a-half-year old A11 processor, will manage.

Transfer your old phone's date without iCloud or iTunes
Probably the absolute very first thing you're going to want to do is get your stuff off your old iPhone and onto your new one. Whether it's been a while since you transferred data, you have a few options.

The first is always to back up your old phone to iTunes and restore the backup on your new iPhone. Also you can do this using iCloud, nevertheless, you might possibly not have enough storage and might not need it more from Apple.

Therefore the third way could be the ideal: You can transfer your data directly from your old iPhone. Have a look at this article that goes step-by-step through the procedure of moving from your old iPhone onto your new iPhone SE.

I should remember that the direct data transfer method could possibly be the easiest of the three, but it will need longer than restoring from an iCloud or iTunes backup.

Have a portrait mode photo
If you owned an iPhone 6 ($180 at eBay), 6S, 7 or 8, then you've never experienced the joy of going for a image with a shallow depth of field, generally known as Portrait Mode. It can turn your mundane background into a creamy, blurry wonderland. The iPhone SE uses processing to separate your subject from the backdrop and then it blurs it to create it look beautiful.

To give it a try, go into the Camera app, swipe to Portrait and then center your subject and have a photo. Before you take the photo, you can preview what it'll appear to be by tapping and holding on the portrait mode dial in the bottom and spinning through different looks. You can also adjust the volume of background blur by tapping on the aperture button in the very best right corner of the screen. Utilize the slider at the bottom to make it pretty much blurry.
