Apple plans to launch an iPhone with Under Display Fingerprint in China

The Chinese Media are claiming that Apple intends to launch a cheaper iPhone model exclusively for the Chinese market; the phone is said to come with an Under Display Fingerprint Sensor instead of the Face ID feature. Now, for the past two years, Apple’s flagship devices have been relying on an advanced authentication method - Face ID, as means for bio-metric verification, and now that report has it that the company has decided to launch a cheaper device with a fingerprint sensor, it however won’t be available globally. We do not understand the reason for this, but perhaps Apple is trying to cut down on some expenses as we heard they have recently been experiencing a decline in sales.

Huawei Ban – U.S companies now allowed to continue selling to Huawei

  Apparently the U.S government and the Chinese government have settled their dispute regarding the trade ban. For those that were never aware, sometime in May, the United State President Trump placed a ban on Companies from doing business with Huawei due to claims of threats on national security. This was quite a setback for the Chinese tech giant, although, they now their own software. We guess they had anticipated an occurrence of this magnitude. However, the ban on selling of U.S tech and equipment to Huawei is being lifted as Trump announced on Saturday, that "US companies can once again sell their equipment to Huawei," as long as the transactions won't present a "great, national emergency problem." Also we learnt that this reprieve also applies to being able to acquire basic components like Qualcomm processors and Google’s Android OS. This is definitely good news and a relief for Huawei phone users that have been in a state of panic since the ban.
