In a note about Apple and the Chinese market, written by JP Morgan analyst Samik Chatterjee for Morgan Stanley clients, iPhone sales in China, the largest smartphone market, have fallen.

Chatterjee analyzed the latest smartphone data released by the China Academy of Information and Communication Technology and found that 1.7 million smartphones from foreign companies were sold in the country in April 2022. The iPhone accounted for the majority, although the total number of phones shipped was 45% less than a year earlier (3.1 million units).

During April, total smartphone shipments in China fell by 26%. Following this trend, iPhone shipments in China decreased by 16% from March to April. In previous years, shipments of iPhone models over the same period have trended up by as much as 27%. Even with the downturn, overseas handset shipments in China accounted for 9% of the country’s smartphone market, up from 11% in March.

Since October last year, foreign phone shipments accounted for 19.2% of China’s total smartphone shipments. This is more than the average of 15.8% last year.

Also, Samik Chatterjee believes that Apple shares should be worth about $200, although now the price is about $149.

Along with this, the company also introduced two new Mali GPUs with many improvements. For example, they support Variable Rate Shading (VRS) and other technologies, and offer 15% better performance and improved energy efficiency than previous models.

Arm didn’t say much about ray tracing in the Immortalis-G715. So far, no tests or full-fledged comparisons have been presented, so it is not yet possible to assess the quality of work and the number of frames per second. At the same time, ready-made solutions will have to wait until 2023. However, Arm still shared a video that demonstrates the capabilities of the new graphics solution.

Previously, a new super-powerful Cortex-X3 processor core was reported. Less productive solutions were also presented.

iPhone users who for some reason don’t like Apple smartwatches will be able to use new models based on Wear OS.

If you want to buy a smart watch for the iPhone, but not an Apple Watch.  Wear OS 3 supports iOS even though the Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 doesn't

The first and so far the only watch on Wear OS 3 is the Samsung Galaxy Watch 4. And it doesn’t work with iOS. But apparently this is an artificial limitation on Samsung’s part, as it has now become known that Wear OS 3 itself can work with iOS.

Qualcomm confirmed this by saying that the upcoming Montblanc Summit 3 watch will be compatible with the iPhone. This watch will be the first with Wear OS 3 after Samsung devices. True, it will be an expensive $1,290 watch, but there should be many more Wear OS 3 models on the market this year, so iPhone owners will have a choice.

Apple has not been able to create its own 5G

Apple has yet to make headway in building its own 5G cellular modem for its smartphones and tablets.

Apple has not been able to create its own 5G modem yet.  The company will continue to use Qualcomm modems in the iPhone 14 and iPhone 15 lines

Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo claims that Qualcomm will remain the only supplier of 5G modems not only for the upcoming iPhone 14 smartphones, but also for the iPhone 15 line. That is, Apple is clearly far from the final stage in its work on its own modem .

Kuo believes that Apple will not give up on this idea and continue development, but it is not yet clear when the modem will be ready. In any case, before the launch of 6G networks, Apple has many more years. In addition, a six-year agreement between Apple and Qualcomm obliges the former to use modems by the second minimum until 2024.

It is expected that this year Apple smartphones will use the Snapdragon X65 modem, and next it will be the Snapdragon X70.
