Apple to host spring event next week, low-cost 5G iPhone in focus


Apple: The iPhone maker said it will hold its annual spring product launch on March 8.

The company is expected to launch a lower-cost version of its popular 5G iPhone, a new version of the iPad Air and a high-end Mac Mini.

“Peek performance. March 8th. See you there,” Apple’s senior vice president of marketing, Greg Joswiak, said in a tweet.

The company did not share more details about the event.

The new phone will be the first update to the iPhone SE model in two years and is rumored to feature improved cameras and a faster processor.

IPhones with 5G capabilities have been a big part of Apple’s focus for its flagship product, with its latest model iPhone 13 showing off custom 5G antennas and radio components for faster speeds as customers look for powerful devices with better connectivity.

The world’s most valuable company, Apple was able to overcome supply chain issues that crippled other industries and companies that led to product shortages during the holiday season to post record sales, thanks to the popularity of its iPhones.

Last year, Apple launched AirTags, a small tracking device, that has drawn criticism for unwanted tracking that could put users’ privacy at risk.

Apple typically hosts three events a year to unveil new products, starting in the spring and announcing its latest iPhone lineup ahead of the holiday shopping season.
