On Wednesday, Apple announced the second-generation iPhone SE, originally released in 2016. The new iPhone SE will start at $400, using the same processor power as the iPhone 11, but at a lower price point.

The new iPhone is available for preorder starting on Friday, and Apple says it will ship starting on April 24, replacing the current budget option of the $450 iPhone 8 in Apple's lineup. Even as the low cost option among iPhones, $400 is an investment for most people, so it should be a color that will last and look good.
