Apple was riding the wave of becoming a trillion dollar company, but in the field of tech nothing is certain. Each company has good days and bad days. In a recent report by a reputed news website, Apple has been reported to be planning to cut back on hiring new employees. This indicates that the company may be entering a period of financial problems soon.Possible Reasons
Apple’s CEO recently sent out a revised revenue forecast in the light of major issues and challenges that the company is facing. One of the biggest issues is that of iPhone sales in China. China’s economy began to slow down in the second half of 2018. The ban of sales of older iPhones due to a [...]
It was the talk of the town when Apple decided to ditch Qualcomm’s chips and go with Intel instead. However now, it has come to the forefront that Apple wanted to have Qualcomm chips on their iPhone XS, XS Max, and XR models but was refused a sale by Qualcomm themselves. Apple had originally wanted to give half the contract to Intel and half to Qualcomm. It was in 2016 when Apple started splitting the chip orders between Intel and Qualcomm. But this time they had to give the entire modem order to Intel.
These revelations have come out from a senior member of Apple who revealed these information during his testimony to the US Federal Trade Commission. [...]

iPhone XR is the cheapest iPhone sold by Apple, from its latest lineup. Except for the Liquid Retina display, single camera, 3 GB RAM, IP 67 rating and lack of 3D Touch, it gets almost all the same specs as the more expensive iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max.

American tech giant Apple, recently launched a trio of iPhones during their annual event. And to everyone’s chagrin, the new iPhones carry a rather hefty price tag, where the most expensive model costs as much as $ 1,449, which is approximately Rs. 1,04,800. And recently, rankled by the extravagant prices, Xiaomi mocked the latest iPhones with product bundles in China that cost less than the new iPhone models.

The product bundles, present on the Chinese Mi website, are named after the latest iPhones, that is, iPhone Xs, Xs Max [...]
