It's Official: Apple Special event invitation for September 10th is out.

Apple will hold a special event at the Steve Jobs Theater in Cupertino, California at 10 a.m PDT, where we all are expecting the new versions of the iPhone 11 edition in several models and capacities with iOS 13 update and a new version of Apple Watch with Watch OS 6 update.



Rumors are saying the iPhone 11 Pro will arrive with an Apple Pencil not attached but free. That is hard to believe Apple will not charge you a dime for the Apple Pencil. However, because of the great competition, Apple has with Samsung Galaxy Note 10/Note 10+ devices, everything is possible.

Mac Book Pro 16? iPad refresh? We will see.

The Apple logo on the invitation has 5 colors:
5 new products? 5 colors on the iPhones? or the company is going deeper with the software and will bring out something really stunning: By innovation only, says the invitation.

We are just guessing. September 10th is the date at 10 a.m PDT. Live streaming.

What’s New: Today, Intel introduced eight additional 10th Gen Intel® Core™ processors for modern laptop computing. The new mobile PC processors (formerly code-named “Comet Lake”) are tailor-made to deliver increased productivity and performance scaling for demanding, multithreaded workloads while still enabling thin-and-light laptop and 2 in 1 designs with uncompromising battery life1.
These processors are performance powerhouses that bring double digit performance gains compared with the previous generation2. The lineup also includes Intel’s first 6-core processor in the U-series, faster CPU frequencies, faster memory interfaces and the industry redefining connectivity with Intel® Wi-Fi 6 (Gig+) and broader scaling of Thunderbolt™ 3. More than 90 additional designs based on the 10th Gen Intel Core processor family will hit the shelves for the holiday season.
“Our 10th Gen Intel Core mobile processors provide customers with the industry-leading range of products that deliver the best balance of performance, features, power and design for their specific needs. From multitasking to everyday content creation, the newest additions to the family scale performance for even higher levels of productivity — in addition to offering best-in-class platform connectivity via Wi-Fi 6 (Gig+) and Thunderbolt 3 that people expect with 10th Gen.”
–Chris Walker, Intel corporate vice president and general manager of Mobility Client Platforms in the Client Computing Group
Why It Matters: Taking advantage of Intel’s world-class portfolio of technologies and intellectual property, the 10th Gen Intel Core processor family delivers a range of workload-optimized platforms to address diverse computing needs and experiences. The new 10th Gen Intel Core processors leverage the improvements in intra-node optimizations on Intel’s highly optimized 14nm process technology that enable up to 16% overall performance gains2 and over 41% better productivity and multitasking on Microsoft Office 365* compared with the previous generation3 — all without compromising battery life1. Additionally, they integrate the best wireless connectivity with Intel WiFi6 (Gig+)4 and support Thunderbolt 3, the fastest and most versatile port available5.

Earlier this month, Intel launched the first products in 10th Gen Intel Core processor family, which were developed on the 10nm process technology and focus on bringing high-performance artificial intelligence (AI) to the PC at scale, a big leap forward in graphics performance and best-in-class connectivity. The new processors introduced today share the same leading platform connectivity, while expanding the family with processors for scaling performance and frequencies for modern productivity workloads. The result is a complete family of processors that complement each other, giving people choices for what usages matter most to them and re-imagining the possibilities of a modern laptop experience.
What They Feature:
The new 10th Gen Intel Core processors range from Intel Core i3 to Intel Core i7 and feature:
  • Up to 6 cores and 12 threads
  • Up to 4.9 GHz max turbo frequency
  • Up to 12MB Intel Smart Cache
  • Configurable up to 25W for maximum performance (U-series)
  • Configurable down to 4.5W for 4-core fanless designs (Y-series)
  • Up to 1.15 GHz graphics frequency
  • LPDDR4x, LPDDR3, DDR4 memory speed increase to 2666 MT/s
People can also expect the same great connectivity across the entire 10th Gen Intel Core processor family. Integrated Intel Wi-Fi 6 (Gig+) brings enhanced WPA3 security for additional peace of mind and is nearly 3 times faster6 to enable quick file downloads and more responsive performance throughout the home. Systems with these processors also support Thunderbolt 3 controllers enabling up to four Thunderbolt 3 ports, each capable of delivering power, download speeds of 40 Gb/s and connecting to the thousands of docks, displays and peripherals in the market, all via a single cable.
Finally, the new processors scale the number of designs optimized with Intel® Adaptix™ Technology, supporting modern standby for faster wake and enabling multiple voice assistant services built into the PCs. Within Intel Adaptix Technology, Intel® Dynamic Tuning Technology enables OEM partners to tune 10th Gen Intel Core processor-based systems to achieve even more performance — ranging from 8% to 12% on a typical system7. On select designs, Intel Dynamic Tuning Technology now offers the first ever AI-based pre-trained algorithms to predict workloads and allow higher turbo burst when responsiveness is needed and extended time in turbo for sustained workloads.
How to Get Them: Laptops and 2 in 1s powered by the new 10th Gen Intel Core processors will be available from PC manufacturers for the holiday season. Select systems from PC manufacturers based on 10th Gen Intel Core processors are on track for verification through Intel’s innovation program code-named “Project Athena.” Look for the “Engineered for Mobile Performance” signage online and in retail stores this fall for the best of 10th Gen Intel Core processor-based systems from PC manufacturers.

2Q 2019: Worldwide Smartphone market share: Samsung 22.7%, Huawei 17.6%, Apple 10.1% says IDC.





Worldwide smartphones shipments declined 2.3% year over year in the second quarter of 2019 (2Q19) for the strongest quarterly performance since 2Q18, according to preliminary data from the International Data Corporation (IDCWorldwide Quarterly Mobile Phone Tracker. Smartphone vendors shipped a total of 333.2 million phones in 2Q19, which was up 6.5% over the previous quarter.
Challenges were seen across many markets with China and the United States experiencing the sharpest quarterly declines. However, the declines in China during the first half of 2019 have been less severe than the second half of 2018, suggesting some recovery is underway in the world's largest single market. Asia/Pacific (excluding Japan and China) continued the strong momentum from 2018 with shipments up more than 3% in the quarter fueled by growth across India and many Southeast Asia markets.
"Despite a lot of uncertainty surrounding Huawei the company managed to hold its position at number two in terms of market share," said Ryan Reith, program vice president with IDC's Worldwide Mobile Device Trackers. "When you look at the top of the market – Samsung, Huawei, and Apple – each vendor lost a bit of share from last quarter, and when you look down the list the next three – Xiaomi, OPPO, and vivo – all gained. Part of this is related to the timing of product launches, but it is hard not to assume this trend could continue."
The vendor landscape at the top of the market continues to get stronger while the struggles for local OEMs and old school industry names got worse. In 2Q19, the top 5 vendors accounted for 69% of the total market volume, and the top 10 vendors accounted for 87%. This trend is making the vendor playing field for smartphones look more and more like the PC market. With 5G beginning to unfold in many markets around the world, the challenges are sure to increase for any vendors without strong consumer mindshare.
"Although the overall market remains in decline, the performance in the second quarter indicates that demand is starting to pick up as the market begins to stabilize again," said Anthony Scarsella, research manager with IDC's Worldwide Quarterly Mobile Phone Tracker. "A key driver in the second quarter was the availability of vastly improved mid-tier devices that offer premium designs and features while significantly undercutting the ultra-high-end in price. Combine this with intensified and generous trade-in programs across major markets and channels and upgrading now makes more sense to consumers."
Smartphone Company Highlights
Samsung maintained the top position in the market for 2Q19 and returned to annual growth of 5.5% with a total of 75.5 million smartphones shipped. As noted in its recent earnings call, the company struggled to sell flagship devices as many consumers are holding onto devices longer than ever and opting for a less expensive replacement option. The pending announcement of the next Galaxy Note device likely held off some of those that are loyal to the brand. Meanwhile, Samsung's A-series devices did well in the quarter, particularly the A50 and A70.
Huawei saw its shipment volumes decline 0.6% when compared to 1Q19, which could be regarded as better than expected given U.S.-China trade tensions. Shipment volumes in China hit an all-time high and accounted for 62% of Huawei's 2Q19 total with 36.4 million units. The China success during the quarter was in part due to actions taken following the U.S trade ban as Huawei relocated significant human resources back to China with a focus on distribution channel management in the Chinese lower-tier cities. The P30 and P30 Pro, which launched in mid-April, also had a relatively good reception as its predecessor, P20 series, had created a positive ripple effect.
Apple shipped 33.8 million new iPhones during 2Q19, which was down significantly from the same quarter a year ago. However, when factoring in the success of the iPhone upgrade program as well as Apple's ability to sell more refurbished iPhones through its channels, the argument can easily be made that its position in the market is still dominant. Regardless of slightly lower market share and device selling prices, as pointed out in yesterday’s earnings call, the iPhone installed base continues to grow. So irrespective of the hardware – as a new iPhone, an older model, or a refurbished product – the expansion of iOS users is what appears to matter most going forward.
Xiaomi experienced a small year-over-year decline during the quarter with a total of 32.3 million smartphones shipped. Xiaomi is still facing challenges in returning to positive year-over-year growth in China in part due to increased competition from Huawei. In India, the success story for Xiaomi continues as it has been able to maintain its momentum due to its focus on both offline and online channels. It continues to expand its offline network and aims to have 10,000 retail stores by the end of 2019.
OPPO performed well in China and India, which together accounted for nearly three-quarters of its shipments in 2Q19. India remains an important market for OPPO in the Asia/Pacific region, especially as Huawei ramps up its efforts in China. In India, the focus on strengthening its channel partnership by offering very attractive margins has been one of the major drivers for OPPO's local growth. In China, OPPO launched its Reno series in the quarter, but Huawei's new P series impacted its sales performance. Nevertheless, its low-end model the A9, and online-exclusive model, K3, did help to support its overall performance, especially during the “618” online shopping festival.
