The third-generation iPhone SE sports the same design as the iPhone 8 with a Home button. It will be a familiar form factor for users of Apple’s older devices, or those that have remained on iPhone SE models.

Apple’s third-gen iPhone SE measures 5.45 x 2.65 x 0.29 inches and weights 5.09 ounces. The iPhone 13 mini measures 5.18 x 2.53 x 0.30 inches and weights 4.97 ounces.
