Jimmy Kimmel convinces people the iPhone 5S is the new iPhone SE

Oh Jimmy, you big meany.

Jimmy Kimmel convinces people the iPhone 5S is the new iPhone SE

Oh Jimmy, you big meany. 

Eyebrows were raised when Apple revealed their new (old) iPhone SE handset - a revamped iPhone 5S with the brains of an iPhone 6S. No bold new curves or market-changing features, just the same old 4-inch screen with some subtle bells and small whistles. 

So similar is the iPhone SE to the iPhone 5S that Jimmy Kimmel sent a TV crew onto the streets of Hollywood to ask average Americans to compare the two handsets. Just one thing: they gave them two identical iPhone 5S phones.

Sure, it's easy to laugh at their foolish attempts to compare two identical handsets, but faced with a TV camera and an earnest man telling you they're two different phones, we're sure we'd probably take their word for it too, right?

Wait - you mean it says 5S on the back of both phones? Ah. Yeah, they're total idiots.
