Apple recently announced its first quarter of fiscal 2022 (October-December 2021), with CEO Tim Cook delivering the best quarter in the company’s history.Net income for the quarter was $34.63 billion on revenue of $123.9 billion.The flagship iPhone generated $71.6bn in revenue, up 9.2 per cent from a year earlier, up from $65.6bn in the same period last year and beating Wall Street expectations of $67.7bn.The iPhone set a new sales record, which Cook attributed to the launch of the iPhone 13 series.Mr Cook said the consumer and media response to the iPhone 13 series had “exceeded expectations” and exceeded previous iPhone models.In addition to the high-end iPhone 13 series, Apple is also making a push at the lower end of the market, with plans to update its iPhone SE line for the entry-level market.The current iPhone SE was launched in April 2020, almost two years ago.The iPhone SE, which has a similar design to the iPhone 8, features an A13 Bionic processor, a 4.7-inch LCD screen, and 12 megapixels. The 64GB and 128GB models cost ¥3299 and ¥3799, respectively.As usual, Apple is likely to unveil the new iPhone SE at its spring event around March, possibly March 8, according to industry analysts.According to Mark Gurman, the new iPhone SE will keep its current 4.7-inch size, retain the classic Home button, and support Touch ID fingerprint recognition.However, the new phone will have the same A15 Bionic chip as the iPhone 13 series, providing excellent performance and 5G support.As a result, iPhone has achieved full 5G coverage. Entry-level iPhone models at the price range of 3000 ~ 4000 also support 5G.Apple is also rumored to be planning a new iPhone SE model, called the iPhone SE Plus, with a larger 5.5-inch screen, similar to the previous iPhone 8 Plus.The latest update denies this, arguing that the larger iPhone SE will hurt sales of the iPhone’s flagship model.The 4.7-inch iPhone SE, with limited internal space, now comes with a battery of only 1821mAh, so how to cope with the high power consumption of 5G is a big challenge.Apple is likely to increase battery capacity, and there may be a small increase in body thickness.In addition to the iPhone 13 series, the latest iPhone SE 3 phone is also included.
