Tim Cook negotiated a deal with China for $ 275 billion. Therefore, the iPhone became the best-selling smartphone in this country for the first time in six years.

The iPhone recently became the top-selling smartphone in China, the second largest market after the United States, for the first time in six years. The Information says the company owes much to CEO Tim Cook, who laid the foundation by secretly signing a deal worth more than $ 275 billion. The agreement said Apple would contribute to the development of China’s economy through investment, business deals and worker training.

Cook signed a five-year deal with the Chinese in 2016 to stop the regulatory flare-up that the Chinese government threatened Apple with. When the Apple leader came to China in 2016, it was reported that the reason for his visit was to find out why the Chinese government was making it difficult for Apple to work in China. For example, Apple was forced to shut down iBooks and iTunes Movies in the country and lost a lawsuit that prevented it from using the iPhone name on non-smartphone items.

Before Cook met with senior government officials, advocacy groups and members of the Communist Party, Apple’s revenue in China dropped 26%. After the publication of the financial report, the company’s shares fell by 10%. In addition to that, major hedge fund operators called for Cook’s removal, and investor Carl Icahn closed a huge position at Apple with a reported profit of $ 2 billion.

A leaked Apple document confirmed that Cook “personally lobbied officials” in China for Apple Pay, iCloud and the App Store. Cook allegedly signed a 1,250-word “memorandum of understanding” between Apple and China’s National Development and Reform Commission. Apple agreed to make concessions in exchange for some exceptions to the rule.

As part of the agreement, Apple agreed to help the Chinese create the most advanced manufacturing technologies, use more components from Chinese suppliers, sign deals with software firms in the country, make direct investments in Chinese technology companies, work on research with universities in China, train workers in the country, and help in other matters. In exchange for helping the Chinese, Apple received certain perks that other foreign companies could not hope for.

Apple has pledged to spend billions of dollars in the country to build new research centers, retail stores and work on projects based on renewable energy sources. Apple has pledged to spend over $ 275 billion in 10 years. If both parties have no objections, the contract will automatically renew for one more year – until May 2022.

The iPhone assembly line has been shut down for the first time in over a decade, according to Nikkei.

Fans of Netflix’s Arcane will be thrilled: Jinx’s Rocket is the packaging of the Oppo Reno7 Pro League of Legends smartphone

As we already reported, Arcane has become the best of Netflix’s original series. It has garnered rave reviews from critics and fans of the League of Legends universe, while drawing the attention of a whole new audience that is far from gaming.

Therefore, the Oppo Reno7 Pro League of Legends smartphone announced this week can attract the attention of a much larger audience than a few months ago. The image of one of the main characters Jinx / Powder (Jinx / Powder) and the unique packaging in the form of a rocket should do the trick.

Oppo and Riot Games have teamed up to create this unique kit. The smartphone has a lot of visual differences from the standard version, including a matte finish with color-changing rear accents around the frame and camera, as well as other bonuses.

In addition to unique packaging, the kit also contains a case with a Jinx design, a 65W charger, two lanyards and stickers. The smartphone has a unique theme, icons and animations. With 12GB of RAM and 256GB of storage, this edition is offered for $ 628.

iPhone 14 Max May Get Old 6.7-inch LTPS Display @ 60Hz

Published

on

Apple has already begun work on its next generation smartphones. The new lineup is expected to include the iPhone 14, 14 Max, 14 Pro and 14 Pro Max, meaning the company will ditch the mini.

According to TheElec, which cites sources in the display supply chain, Apple has yet to make a final decision on which display type and display type will be used in the iPhone 14 Max. The company is choosing between a 60Hz LTPS display and a 120Hz LTPO panel.

If the company opts for a 120Hz LTPO display, it will have to purchase panels from Samsung, which has an almost complete monopoly on OLED LTPO technology. The South Korean giant also supplies panels for the iPhone 13 Pro and 13 Pro Max models.

However, Apple is looking to diversify its supply chain and reduce its dependence on Samsung, which is why the company is increasing orders for panels from manufacturers such as LG and BOE. In this case, the iPhone 14 Max could get a 60Hz LTPS panel.

This is due to the fact that LG has not yet been able to produce OLED displays with LTPO technology. Similar technology from the Chinese BOE will not be available until 2023. Samsung will continue to be Apple’s largest supplier of display panels for the iPhone and could ship about 130 million screens next year. However, LG and BOE are expected to increase their shipments to 60 million and 45 million units, respectively.

According to rumors, Apple will introduce new smartphones in September 2022.
