If there’s one thing Australians have proved themselves most adept at, during this crazy lockdown time, it’s buying stuff. While siting around bored at home – what’s one to do? Get more toys!

No wheels have been reinvented: the Cupertino wizards have simply taken the 2017 iPhone 8 body and crammed it with modern-day hardware, in the same vein as the previous SE, which squashed itself into an iPhone 5 shell. But oh, what a selection of components. There’s a generous HDR10-capable 4.7” Retina display, complete with Touch ID security on the home button and a glass – not plastic – case rear.
