Apple Peek Performance: Influencers expect iPhone SE to play crucial role

Apple, iPhone

Apple is expected to launch several new devices, including the new affordable version of its iPhone SE with 5G capabilities, at its annual spring ‘Peek Performance’ event today.

Twitter influencers expect the iPhone SE to play a crucial role in Apple’s iPhone strategy, as it is the only small-sized iPhone, according to the Social Media Analytics Platform of GlobalData, a leading data and analytics company.

Says Smitarani Tripathy, Social Media Analyst at GlobalData:

“Influencers on GlobalData’s Social Media Analytics platform see more importance in entry-level models than the flagship models of iPhones. Updated iPad and new Mac are also expected in Apple’s first product event of this year.”

Below are a few most popular tweets captured by GlobalData:

  1. Sami Fathi, Editor and Social Media Manager at MacRumors:

“Important to note that the third-gen iPhone SE will play a crucial role in @Apple ’s iPhone strategy, given it will be the only small-sized iPhone later this year, after the “iPhone mini” gets dropped from the iPhone 14 line. A boring but important update. #AppleEvent”

  1. Carolina Milanesi, Founder of The Heart of Tech:

“Given the expectations for Tuesday #AppleEvent to have an update to the #iPhoneSE seems like a good time to reshare what I wrote in 2020. Now is the perfect time to bring out the SE on #5G & get users off those old models they have been hanging on to. Carriers will be delighted”

  1. Prabhu Ram, Trading Analyst

“Apple sets March 8 for its next event: “peak performance” is what’s on the agenda!

We should probably see an iPhone SE and iPad Air at the event. Plus, one more thing. Potentially, a peek into the new Macs! #AppleEvent”

  1. Adrian Weckler, Tech Editor, Independent Newspapers,

“New entry-level iPhone expected. Plus maybe a new iPad Air. And maybe one or two new Macs. #appleevent”
