Why You Should Believe This Apple iPhone Rumor

AAPL AVGO

Why You Should Believe This Apple iPhone Rumor. Ashraf Eassa, The Motley FoolMotley FoolJanuary 21, 2019, 2:06 PM GMT. One of the ways that Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL) sought to reduce the cost structure of the iPhone XR relative to its pricier counterparts -- while also providing an additional marketing point for those pricier models -- was by giving the iPhone XR an inferior wireless antenna system. While both the iPhone XS and iPhone XS Max support gigabit LTE download speeds by way of a 4x4 MIMO antenna, the iPhone XR (which uses the same exact cellular modem chip as the XS and XS Max) is held back by a less-sophisticated 2x2 MIMO antenna. One of Apple's key wireless chip suppliers is Broadcom(NASDAQ: AVGO). While Broadcom doesn't supply Apple with cellular modem chips, it does provide Apple with Wi-Fi/Bluetooth combination chips as well as various radio frequency (RF) chips that are critical to a smartphone's wireless subsystems. It's clear that, in addition to coping with a less-than-ideal smartphone market as well as macroeconomic headwinds, Apple's iPhone is simply losing ground in China to fierce competitors. If Apple wants to improve its competitive positioning in China, it likely needs to get more aggressive on the tech specs that it offers customers with products like the iPhone XR.

Shell study finds expertise gap and lubrication errors are hampering adoption of Industry 4.0 technologies among UK manufacturers - British Plastics and Rubber

RDSA RDSB

The 'Exploring Industry 4.0' study found that 96 per cent of UK manufacturers are engaged and optimistic about Industry 4.0 technologies, and anticipate that high-tech equipment will deliver cost savings to their company. However, a lack of expertise combined with concerns about pace of change and costs are hindering the amount of connected, predictive and data-based technologies being used by UK manufacturers, with Shell saying that collaboration will be the key to unlocking progress. There are also concerns about the implications on Total Cost of Ownership (TCO), as around half of companies expect TCO to increase as a result of introducing new technologies, primarily because of the higher up-front investment and because they expect maintenance costs to rise. This is something that we in Shell Lubricants want to change and can help them overcome.”. External support is important for companies looking to improve maintenance practices, and 86 per cent of those surveyed using Industry 4.0 technologies plan to use their lubricants supplier to help them progress.
