apple’s q3 2019 results

Apple’s latest quarterly results are in, and they’re just what you’d expect: the portrait of a company that’s massively profitable and successful, but whose main product is lagging behind while new product lines are growing just fast enough to make up the difference. I guess we yawn at $53.8 billion in revenue these days – that’s a record for Apple’s sleepy third fiscal quarter, but up only 1 percent over 2018’s record Q3. As always, the devil’s in the details – and fortunately for us, Apple CEO Tim Cook and CFO Luca Maestri spend an hour on the phone once a quarter to provide a few little details – or as they like to say on these calls, “more colour” – that can help us understand the current state of Apple’s…

apple’s $1bn intel purchase

Apple has announced that it plans to buy the “majority of Intel’s smartphone modem business”, following recent rumours to that effect. The deal will cost Apple about one billion dollars, and should close in the fourth quarter of this year, subject to regulatory approval. For the price, Apple will acquire approximately 2,200 Intel employees along with intellectual property, equipment, and leases. The deal will greatly boost Apple’s patent portfolio, taking the company to over 17,000 patents related to current and future wireless technology. Apple is only acquiring Intel’s smartphone modem business, however. Intel will still be able to develop modems for non-smartphone applications such as PCs, smart cars, or IoT applications. Intel CEO Bob Swan painted this as a win for its company. “This agreement enables us to focus on developing technology…

apple announces halt to siri ‘grading’ programme

In the wake of backlash over a Guardian report that exposed employees who were tasked with analysing Siri recordings for accuracy and quality, Apple has announced it is temporarily suspending the programme as it decides how to proceed. In a statement to TechCrunch, an Apple spokesperson said the company is “committed to delivering a great Siri experience while protecting user privacy. While we conduct a thorough review, we are suspending Siri grading globally.” Apple added that users will have the ability to choose whether they want to participate in the programme as part of an upcoming software update. The Siri grading process was exposed in July when one of the contractors contacted The Guardian claiming that they “regularly hear confidential medical information, drug deals, and recordings of couples having sex” as part of…

why apple acquired intel’s mobile modem business

The race to 5G just added a new lane. Following a report in the Wall Street Journal, Apple confirmed that it will be acquiring the majority of Intel’s smartphone modem chip business, which went belly-up earlier this year. The transaction is valued at $1 billion and is expected to close in the fourth quarter of this year, Apple said in a press release. Intellectual property exchanging hands between industry giants isn’t exactly earth-shattering news, but this deal has significant ramifications. Just four months ago, Apple and Intel were partners on the development of the iPhone’s 5G modem, but that abruptly ended in one fell swoop when Apple and Qualcomm settled their long-time court case and Intel “announced its intention to exit the 5G smartphone modem business and complete an assessment of…

apple ipad pro vs samsung galaxy tab s6

When it comes to tablets, Apple pretty much has the market sewn up with its all-conquering iPad range. Aside from the cheap models or Microsoft’s Windows 10-powered Surface Pro 6, there’s little to threaten the iPad’s dominance. One company that does have the clout and expertise to make a grab for the crown, however, is Samsung, and with its new Tab S6 device there’s plenty to tempt consumers away from the safe harbour of iOS. Over the following pages we compare the iPad Pro and Samsung Tab S6 to see how the best of Android compares to Apple’s premium offering. Price Apple updated its iPad Pro line-up in October 2018, introducing two new models: 11- and 12.9in in size, both with Wi-Fi or Wi-Fi + Cellular options. They are available in the following…

powerbeats pro

When AirPods launched in 2016 they were the earphones that launched a thousand think pieces. They were mocked for looking like toothbrush heads, alien ears and criticized for their high price. Fast forward to 2019 and cities are rife with AirPods. They are as common to see on your daily commute as the classic white iPod headphones were back in the mid-2000s. The Apple-owned Beats is still making headphones as a separately to their parent company. The Powerbeats Pro are the first true wireless Beats and they are excellent because they take all the best things about AirPods and substantially improve the fit and audio performance. In fact, aside from the enormous charging case, there isn’t much to complain about for most people, so long as you have an iPhone. Design From first wear…
