The Key Takeaways From Apple’s (AAPL) ‘Hi, Speed’ Event For Investors

As expected, at its “Hi, Speed” event Apple (AAPL) debuted its several new 5G iPhone models, expanded its iPhone lineup from as low as $399 to a high as $1099, and introduced a new device, the HomePod Mini. Along with the new products, CEO Tim Cook continued to reinforce the company’s commitment to privacy, calling out how the feature is intrinsic within each device. But the item that caught our attention was the special offers that were announced by mobile carriers for Apple’s new iPhone models.

Early on in the event, Hans Vestberg, Chairman and CEO of Verizon (VZ) appeared to discuss his company’s 5G nationwide network and 5G Ultra-Wideband offering, including a focus on network capacity in stadiums, airports, and music venues – if anyone can remember what those are. Investors were apparently impressed by what Vestberg had to say as his company’s share price, having dropped over

Why China could be key to 5G upgrade ‘supercycle’

GUANGZHOU, China — Apple’s iPhone 12 range with 5G connectivity is going to be very important in China and key to achieving what analysts are calling an upgrade “supercycle.”

5G refers to next-generation mobile networks promising super-fast data speeds.

On Tuesday, Apple unveiled four new 5G-capable iPhone models. While 5G networks are in their infancy, China’s networks have been pushing quickly to expand coverage.

That has led to a surge in 5G smartphone sales, particularly from domestic players like Huawei.

Apple is now joining the party, a big move in a market that accounts for around 15% of the U.S. tech giant’s total sales.

“If we look back to (the) second quarter of the year, almost half of the smartphones shipped in China had 5G connectivity,” Will Wong, research manager at IDC, told CNBC. “Among the top 5 vendors in China, Apple was the only one without a 5G model.

Apple Ending Key Source of iPhone E-Waste: Headphones, Chargers

It’s Apple Day, and for once, I don’t have to take on the usual role of climate journalists completely raining on the parade of people hypebeasting the new iPhone.

I mean, look, of course you should run your old iPhone into the ground instead of buying a new one if you value a habitable planet and not foisting your conspicuous consumption habits onto the backs of poor communities tasked with mining the metals and constructing a new phone you don’t need while dealing with the waste created by you getting rid of your old but perfectly good phone, you monstrous bastard. But if you actually need a new phone and order the iPhone 12, you’ll be getting a lighter ethical load than usual.

The company announced it will no longer ship iPhones with headphones or wall chargers. To which I say, thank the lord. This is like the lowest of

Work-integrated learning is a key source of talent for the Canadian bio-economy

BioTalent Canada today released new findings from its most recent bio-economy Labour Market Information (LMI) study. The data in this new brief—The Talent Differential: The case for work-integrated learning in the bio-economy —was collected from a series of three facilitated roundtable discussions, a survey of 573 bio-economy employers in 2020, and an analysis of data from BioTalent Canada’s current wage subsidy programs.

The results indicate work-integrated learning (WIL) such as co-op, work placements, internships, and clinical placements that combine practical work experience with formal classroom learning are a key component of many Canadian post-secondary education models. The programs also offer a key source of talent recruitment for bio-economy employers.

“Students who take advantage of work-integrated learning opportunities have an easier time transitioning to the workforce,” says Rob Henderson, President and CEO of BioTalent Canada. “But this brief uncovers some challenges. While women account for the majority of WIL participants, they
