The iPhone SE (2022) is now on sale, the new Apple terminal that stands out for its power and compactness at the same time. If you already have it in your hands or are planning to get it, you might be interested too in some cases to protect it from scratches, bumps and accidental drops that compromise your safety.
Do iPhone 8 and iPhone SE (2020) cases work with iPhone SE (2022)?
The iPhone SE (2022) retains the design of the iPhone SE (2020), which at the same time stems from the iPhone 8 and was first seen in the iPhone 6. If you had/have the iPhone 8 or the SE (2020), you may already have a case in your possession and you wonder if they are compatible with the new smartphone. the short answer is yes.
The iPhone 8, SE (2020) and SE (2022) have the same dimensions: 138.4 x 67.3 x 7.3 mm. The layout of elements such as the rear camera or the physical home button with Touch ID is the same in all three models, so in theory, any case compatible with the iPhone 8 or SE (2020) will work for the SE (2022).
Yes, there is a small detail to mention, and that is that the position of the bitten apple on the iPhone 8 varies from that of the iPhone SE (2020 and 2022). In the former it is closer to the top edge, while in the latter two it is centered in the middle of the back. There are cases that expose this element with a hole and if they were made for the iPhone 8 they won’t look too good on the SE, although they will fit.
