Need to transfer data to new iPhone SE

Apple has just announced the latest iPhone SE 2020. Like the old iPhone SE 2016, it is released to attract users by affordable prices. Is it worth upgrading to iPhone SE? The new iPhone SE is equipped with the most powerful iPhone chip, A13 Bionic Chip. It looks really attractive. Let have an overview of its tech specs.

In the time of the large-display mobile phone, Apple decides to release a small-display iPhone, which is equipped with the 4.7-inch display. It is the same large as the screen of iPhone 6. The new iPhone uses the same heart of iPhone 11, the A13 Bionic chip. It is really cost-effective to buy the most powerful mobile phone processor at this price. If you want to use the camera, it would work like iPhone XR. The new iPhone SE has a 12MP rear camera and a 7MP front camera.

Except for the A13 Bionic chip, the new iPhone SE has no other great improvement compared to iPhone 8, so you could regard it as the upgraded iPhone SE. The starting price of the new iPhone SE is $399 for a device of 64GB storage.

If you have got the new iPhone SE 2020, you must consider transferring data to it. This passage would give an integrated guide to transfer what you want to your new iPhone SE.
