apple’s q2 2019 results

i Phone sales might be levelling off, but Apple is doing just fine. Apple has announced its second quarter results for 2019, and it’s clear that the shift in it business model is in full swing. While it still posted revenue of $58 billion, iPhone sales were relatively flat, posting just $31 billion compared to $37.5 billion in the same 2018 quarter. Apple stopped breaking out unit sales last quarter, but it sold 52 million units in the year-ago quarter. Elsewhere, Apple is looking stronger than ever, particularly when it comes to Services. Apple reported a record $11.5 billion tally for the category (which includes Apple Music, digital sales, and Apple Pay) versus $9.2 billion last year. It was the first time Services broke the $11 billion mark. Paid subscriptions were…

tim cook talks values, regulation, health, and more

Tim Cook is not one of Time’s 100 most influential people of 2019. Nonetheless, as a three-time honouree of that list, he was invited to be interviewed by Nancy Gibbs at the Time 100 Summit. As expected, Cook didn’t reveal any details about new products, software, or services. Instead, the questions posed and answers given were broad, touching on Cook’s and Apple’s values, and how technology fits into the world we live in. Here’s some of what he said about a variety of issues. Quotes have been lightly edited for clarity. On Apple’s values “I’ve always deeply felt that people should have values, a corporation is nothing more than a collection of people, and therefore by extension a corporation should have values. “We’ve always had a set of things that were really important to…

apple recalls wall plug adaptors over safety fears

Apple has announced that it is recalling a number of wall plug adaptors due to safety concerns, including the kind used here in the UK. According to the tech giant: “In very rare cases, affected Apple three-prong wall plug adaptors may break and create a risk of electrical shock if touched.” It says that the risks are only associated with adaptors that shipped with Macs and some iOS devices between 2003 and 2010, in addition to the three-pronged plug included in the World Travel Adaptor Kit. Is your plug is included in Apple’s recall? While it’s a long time since these particular adaptors were sold, it’s possible that you are still using one, so it’s worth checking. Apple says that the affected three-prong plug adaptors are white and have no letters on the…

apple and qualcomm settle their legal differences

Just when their legal battle was beginning the trial phase, Apple and Qualcomm have ironed out their differences in a surprise settlement. The terms of the agreement include the dismissal of all litigation between the two companies, as well as any pending cases brought by Apple’s global contract manufacturers. It basically returns the relationship to the way it was before the allegations started flying. Most notably, Apple has agreed to pay Qualcomm a one-time payment of an undisclosed sum, as well as royalties going forward. Both companies issued short press releases to announce the agreement, but it’s hard to find much good news in it for Apple. Qualcomm is getting paid and keeps Apple as a customer, and there’s no indication they will be changing their business practices. Why this matters: While…

apple ipad air (2019)

Price: £479 from fave.co/2KXYbnY As we reported last month, the Air is back. Apple unexpectedly revived its old iPad Air branding (formally discontinued in March 2017) in a surprise announcement in March, unveiling a powerful, mid-priced, mid-sized tablet with an A12 processor and support for the Apple Pencil. But will the Air float your boat? In this review we put it through our rigorous speed, graphics and battery tests, and evaluate design, specs and pricing, to find out if Apple has hit the sweet spot. Price The 9.7in iPad (2018) is still on sale, starting at £319 from fave.co/2Dyf6HG and that remains the benchmark for a budget iPad. The new Air is pitched a little higher, while remaining markedly more affordable than the iPad Pro models further up the scale. 64GB, Wi-Fi: £479 256GB, Wi-Fi: £629 64GB,…

apple ipad mini (2019)

Price: £399 from fave.co/2DyVlQ9 This wasn’t meant to happen. The mini hadn’t been updated since 2015 and was left out in the cold, costing more than the larger 9.7in iPads that were released since. We thought Apple had left it for dead. The introduction of this 2019 model is a surprise – it’s barely different on first glance and yes, those bezels sure look huge after the past four years of consumer technology working towards bezel-less displays. But I’ve been pleasantly surprised by the mini, finding that I pick it up far more often than I do with a larger iPad. Using devices more is sometimes a bad thing, but this iPad lends itself to reading far more than it does scrolling through endless timelines. It’s not an iPad for Instagram or Twitter.…
