Apple joined the move to 5G on Tuesday, unveiling four new iPhones which use the new standard in what could be a turning point for the high-speed wireless technology.
“Today is the beginning of a new era for iPhone,” Apple chief executive Tim Cook said during a streamed launch event from the company’s headquarters in California.
“This is a huge moment for all of us. And we’re really excited. 5G will bring a new level of performance for downloads and uploads, higher quality video streaming, more responsive gaming, real time interactivity and so much more.”
The new models include the redesigned iPhone 12 — successor to the top-selling iPhone 11 launched last year — with a display of 6.1 inches at a starting price of $799, available October 23.

Swiss cycling brand BMC and U.K.-based Formula One motor racing team Red Bull Advanced Technologies have released a teaser video promising a “cycling revolution.”
In the video, former professional sprint cyclist Fabian Cancellara rides—fast—on an obscured road racing bicycle and ends by claiming that “if this works it’s going to change everything.”
BMC has been working with Aston Martin Red Bull Advanced Technologies for two years and the teaser video released on October 6 is the first communication about the collaboration since it was announced in 2018.
“After almost two years of intense research and development, Red Bull Advanced Technologies and innovative Swiss bike brand BMC have moved into the prototyping phase of their technology partnership,” said a joint announcement.
Red Bull Advanced Technologies’ Vehicle Science team has been helping BMC technicians with simulations of bike behavior based on data from Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) models.
AI has been heralded as the catalyst for a new industrial revolution. While the potential for massive impact is very real, venture investors looking to capitalize on growth ought to spend more time considering the enabling infrastructure.
Although applications are myriad and diverse, from drug discovery to driverless cars, practical adoption in the enterprise has been lackluster. Only 1 in 20 business leaders would describe their companies as “implementing AI widely across the organization.”
The starting point for identifying these investment opportunities is the deconstruction of the AI workflow—extracting each step in the process, from aggregation to deployment and seeking efficiency, scale and access.
An infrastructure-first approach to investing has the potential to yield greater venture returns with a lower risk profile. Looking at
Samsung’s Galaxy Note 20 Ultra and S20 Ultra might be packed to the hilt with the latest, greatest tech, but they also come with sky-high prices to match. That makes them a tricky sell at a time when purse strings are tightening and rivals like OnePlus are making great phones at more affordable prices. The Galaxy S20 FE (which stands for “fan edition”) aims to offer much of what you’ll find in the company’s top-end phones but with a few tweaks here and there in order to keep the price down.
