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 regulation, values, 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…

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 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…

27in imac (2019)

Price: £1,749 (inc VAT) from The iMac is 21 years old in August, and we had been hoping for a redesign of the iconic all-in-one Mac to mark the occasion. Sadly that is not to be, but there are some significant changes to what’s on the inside. And it’s what’s on the inside that counts, right? The 27in iMac (2019) has more powerful processors with 6 cores (and an 8-core build-to-order option), improved graphics cards (including the Radeon Pro Vega) and faster RAM, making it a much more impressive machine than its 2017 equivalent. In this review we are looking at the bottom-of-the-range 27in iMac, with its 3GHz 6-core 8th generation i5 processor. We’ve also benchmarked the build-to-order 3.6GHz 8-core 9th-generation Intel Core i9 model, which could be seen as…

21.5in imac (2019)

Price: £1,149 (inc VAT) from We’d love to be starting with a celebration of a new-look iMac for the 2019, but unfortunately the latest iMac looks just the same as it did back in 2012 when Apple slimmed down the design that was first introduced in 2007. As we mentioned in the previous review, it’s the longest Apple has gone without giving a Mac a design refresh. However, there are changes to the processor, graphics card options and the RAM. We’ll look at these in more detail below. But, suffice to say, they do mean that the iMac (2019) is a much more powerful machine than its 2017 equivalent. And, chances are, what matters to you is how well your Mac stands up to the demands of modern day apps…
