iPhone SE (2022) colors: Everything you need to know
Apple's iPhone SE from 2022 is everything a compact phone should deliver: reliable performance, 5G, a good-enough camera, and all that wrapped up in a comfortable design to hold and carry, even in your pocket (something 2023 iPhones can't really brag about, can they?)

The design of the iPhone SE (2022) remains mostly unchanged in comparison to the last AppleiPhone SE from 2020 (and also the iPhone 8 and 7, for that matter), so you will be getting a slightly more conservative-looking phone.

Now that the iPhone 15 family is here, you have even more reasons to consider the iPhone SE (2022) — this one seems to be remaining the only new compact iPhone Apple is selling for the time being (no mini in the iPhone 15 series, nor in the 14!).

In this article, we examine the iPhone SE (2022) colors in detail with the aim to help you choose which one to go for.

What colors is the Apple iPhone SE (2022) available in?


The iPhone SE (2022) is available in three pretty traditional colors: Midnight, Starlight, and Product RED. Just like its predecessors, the budget-friendly iPhone sports a glossy glass back and a metal frame with a matte finish, which is mostly identical to what we saw with the iPhone 8 and iPhone SE (2020).

The back does catch some fingerprints, but nothing too out of the ordinary, and this issue is fixable by regularly cleaning the phone or simply throwing a case on.

iPhone SE (2022) official colors:
  • Midnight (black)
  • Starlight (white)
  • Product RED (red)

Now, onto detail!

iPhone SE (2022) in Midnight


As you can see, there's nothing out of the ordinary with the iPhone SE (2022) colors this year. Midnight is a color we've known for awhile and is present with many Apple products. It is a deep black hue, which looks elegant and seamlessly blends with the phone's camera. Basically, this is the color to go for if you want an unassuming and professional-looking iPhone, that doesn't attract too much attention.

However, there's something important to mention here -  the iPhone SE's back is glossy and this is the color that will attract the most fingerprints, so do keep that in mind.

iPhone SE (2022) in Starlight


Starlight is again a color we've known from other iPhones. It is a white-looking shade, but the white here isn't your typical snow-like white. It is a warmer tone, which gives off a subtle vibe of sophistication. And although white (and Starlight, for that matter) might seem too simple to some people, it is a color that will always look great, neat, and polished. And, on top of it all, it doesn't attract fingerprint smudges as much.

The frame of the phone and the Apple logo are painted in a silver hue that looks great with the white.

Available for all three carriers.

iPhone SE (2022) in Product RED


Red is an eye-catching color, and it will always look attractive no matter if it's trendy right now or not. Basically, iPhone SE in Product RED is for people who love attention and are a bit more daring with the choice of a phone color. At the same time, Apple's been doing Product RED for a long time and they've nailed the perfect, classic red color here.

But that's not all! On top of getting a sophisticated red phone, with the purchase of the iPhone SE in Product RED, you're helping Apple donate to the fight against AIDS. So, you get to be daring and also contribute!

Available on all three major carriers.

From up front, all three color versions sport black bezels and accents. This makes the black iPhone SE (2022) blend very well, whereas the white and red versions have that slight dual-tone design going for them.


Apple doesn't have the habit of adding new colors to the iPhone SE post-factum, so as far as colors are concerned, this could very likely be it for the foreseeable future, at least until the next generation of the iPhone SE arrives.
