Apple Inc. has a backup plan if the US-China trade war gets out of hand. The Cupertino, Calif.-based company’s primary manufacturing partner has enough capacity to make all iPhones bound for the U.S. outside of China if necessary, according to a senior executive at Hon Hai Precision Industry Co. The Taiwanese contract manufacturer now makes most of the smartphones in the Chinese mainland. China is a crucial cog in Apple’s business, the origin of most of its iPhones and iPads as well as its largest international market. But President Donald Trump has threatened Beijing with new tariffs on about $300 billion worth of Chinese goods, an act that would escalate tensions dramatically while levying a punitive tax on Apple’s most profitable product. Hon Hai, known also as Foxconn, is the American giant’s most important manufacturing partner. It will fully support Apple if it needs to adjust its production as the U.S.-Chinese trade spat gets grimmer and more … [Read more...] about Apple’s US iPhones can be made outside of China if needed

Arecently leaked image suggests that Apple's upcoming iPhone 11 could have the USB-C instead of the usual Lightning port. Apple has long been using the Lightning port as the standard for its devices. Does this mean that it is ready to let go of Lightning for USB-C on its new iPhones?Normally, iPhone devices have the Lightning connector appear on its restore screen. However, an image from the iOS 13 beta, as seen on Raphael Mutton's Twitter, shows that the software update is going to display a USB-C connector in lieu of the Lightning connector.While the on-screen connector still looks similar to the Lightning connector, the small notches on its connector tip aren't there. Potentially, this new restore screen could be Apple's departure from its own connector technology.The potential marketability of the iPhones can be improved with the switch to USB-C ports. USB-C can charge faster since it delivers 100 watts, 20V/5A charge speed to a device compared to the Lightning's 12 watts. … [Read more...] about Apple iPhone 11 finally ditching lightning for USB-C?

WASHINGTON (WASHINGTON POST) - It's 3am. Do you know what your iPhone is doing? Mine has been alarmingly busy. Even though the screen is off and I'm snoring, apps are beaming out lots of information about me to companies I've never heard of. Your iPhone probably is doing the same - and Apple could be doing more to stop it. On a recent Monday night, a dozen marketing companies, research firms and other personal data guzzlers got reports from my iPhone. At 11.43pm, a company called Amplitude learnt my phone number, e-mail and exact location. At 3.58am, another called Appboy got a digital fingerprint of my phone. At 6.25am, a tracker called Demdex received a way to identify my phone and sent back a list of other trackers to pair up with. And all night long, there was some startling behaviour by a household name: Yelp. It was receiving a message that included my IP address - once every five minutes. Our data has a secret life in many of the devices we use every day, from talking Alexa … [Read more...] about While you’re sleeping, your iPhone stays busy harvesting data
