You can now talk to Apple on Twitter

Apple on Twitter? It’s not a new phenomenon. The Cupertino company has shied away from making a companywide Twitter account, but it has various other ones relating to specific brands, like @AppleMusic or @AppStore.

There’s a new one now that’s sort of company-wide though, in the sense that it affects all Apple products — @AppleSupport.

The company has taken to Twitter to “provide tips, tricks and helpful information when you need it most.” How many followers does it have? It’s rapidly gaining more quick but as of publication, it has 33,300 followers — after just a few hours of being live.

The Notes app has some awesome hidden tricks. A favorite of ours: how to turn lists into checklists. #AppleSupport

The account has only posted four tweets as of publication, one of which is how to turn lists into checklists in the Notes app, with a photo gallery going through the process. But Apple seems to have high amount of reply tweets already, responding to people asking for support on its products. The company is offering instructions on how to solve issues, while also requesting users to direct message the account to get more information so they can help them further — at least that’s better than sending them a customer support phone number.

@srivi20 We want to help with this. DM us which device you're using and we'll go from there.

Hopefully direct messaging the account will actually ensure support for people experiencing problems.

The account mostly follows Apple’s various other Twitter accounts, but is also following @BeatsbyDre, as well as a few company executives such as CEO Tim Cook, Senior Vice President of Internet Software and Services Eddy Cue, and Angela Ahrendts, senior vice president of retail and online stores.

How Apple can (and should) save the iPhone SE 4
The Apple iPhone SE (2022) and Apple iPhone SE (2020) together.

When it comes to Apple’s iPhone lineup, most people just think of the latest mainline series. Right now, this means the iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Plus, iPhone 14 Pro, and iPhone 14 Pro Max. However, there’s still the iPhone SE, now in its third iteration, that still serves a purpose for a specific niche of iPhone user.

The original iPhone SE from 2016 recycled the iPhone 5S body, which was a great design at the time, and it had the perfect small and compact 4-inch size for one-handed use. The second and third-generation iPhone SE reused the older iPhone 8 body, which had a slightly larger 4.7-inch screen, and are still the only iPhones left using Touch ID. Plus, you could pick up an iPhone SE for less than $430, making it a great pick if you’re budget is tight.
