Best answer: No, cases for the original iPhone SE will not fit the iPhone SE (2020) because the newer device has a larger screen.

Super-sized!

If you're upgrading from the original iPhone SE, your case will most definitely not fit. The iPhone SE (2020) features a 4.7-inch Retina HD display. The older iPhone SE (first released in 2016) featured a 4-inch screen. The difference in sizes means the older iPhone SE cases won't fit the 2020 model.

If you're upgrading from an iPhone 6, iPhone 6s, iPhone 7, or iPhone 8, you're in luck. Your old case will, most likely, fit the iPhone SE 2020. As the iPhone gets older, there are ever-so-slight variations in height, width, and depth.

Model Height Width Depth
iPhone 6 138.1 mm 67.0 mm 6.9 mm
iPhone 6s 138.3 mm 67.1 mm 7.1 mm
iPhone 7 138.3 mm 67.1 mm 7.1 mm
iPhone 8 138.4 mm 67.3 mm 7.3 mm
iPhone SE (2020) 138.4 mm 67.3 mm 7.3 mm

Another thing to mention is that the Apple logo is slightly lower on the iPhone SE (2020) than it is on older iPhones with the same design. If you have a case with a cutout for the logo, the logo will no longer sit in the correct spot.

If you're upgrading from an iPhone XR, iPhone X, or iPhone XS, you're going to need to buy a new case. The height, width, and depth of the iPhone X lineup (and the iPhone 11 lineup) are significantly different than the iPhone SE.

Apple's newest iPhone, which is budget-priced, features an A13 Bionic chip, which makes it perfect for photography, gaming, and augmented reality experience. Offering a dedicated 8-core Neural Engine, the A13 Bionic chip is capable of 5 trillion operations per second, two Machine Learning Accelerators on the CPU, and a new Machine Learning Controller to balance performance and efficiency.

The iPhone SE (2020) is also noted for having better battery life than previous models. It's wireless-charging capable with Qi-certified chargers and also supports fast-charging, thereby giving customers up to a 50 percent charge in just 30 minutes.

You can purchase the iPhone SE (2020) in black, white, and PRODUCT(RED).

The first case options

Apple (naturally) is first out of the gate in terms of iPhone SE (2020) cases. Like it has done with other handsets, the company is offering iPhone SE (2020) cases made of silicone and leather.
