Apple Launches New iPhone SE
"We weren't sure they were going to do it but they did on. Wednesday apple launched. Its latest IPHONE. Model the IPHONE S. E. by a press release much less glamorous than the flashy showcases. We've gotten used to and so is the phone the S. E. Marks Shift in Apple Strategy and our apple report trickle joins us to explain trip. Thanks for being here. They drive me all right. So tell me about the new quote unquote new features of the iphone as e you when you think about apple's product development timeline. They started these things so long ago before they're released but this is kind of a case of don't let the perfect be the enemy of the good if you think about it. This is a phone. That's that looks a lot like older phones that that has some of the technologies. We're familiar with with their older phones. For example fingerprint sensors and and not face ide- but features a low price of three ninety nine and right now. A lot of people are losing their jobs. Lower Price. Hyphen may be a good move for the company. Yeah I mean three ninety nine. It's still a lot of money like let's be clear but it's still a lot less than recent models. This isn't a pandemic move. You're saying this was already part of a longterm strategy. These phones are usually more than a year in development so the timing just happens to be coincidentally beneficial in the sense that we're in the middle of a recession and now apple has kind of a recession model phone. That just happened to be timed right for the moment. You said it has a touch. Id So we're back to the home button right. I guess yeah I guess you could say we're back in the future if you will right. It's an interesting phone and apple's done this once before they launched. What was an older looking phone with? Older technologies in two thousand sixteen. That phone was also called the IPHONE. Se and what they're able to do is they're able to take components that have been around for a while and machinery. They've been using for years them because they've had that machinery for a while. It doesn't cost them as much to make these phone so they can still have good apple profit margins. But you know not maybe you know the type of sizzle worry. We're used to from the company when it comes to technology and the feature specs. There are a couple of drawbacks with the phone. The other phone that we've been kind of waiting for from Apple. This year is the five G. This obviously is not that end of the spectrum. And it's still even with its lower tag. It's still more expensive than some of the average phones in the markets. That apple is trying to get into like India for example. So how could that have an impact on how well received? This phone is at the end of the day. Yeah absolutely I mean. I think that's going to be the big challenge for this phone. Is that Apple? Apple hopes that it can begin to build some market share and some some developing markets India. I mean that's a big growth market for the smartphone world right now. China is pretty much tapped and not part of the reason. We've seen apple's total number of shipments and its sales of smartphones in terms of unit sales decrease in order to reverse that they've gotta find a market like India and sell these funds. Problem with the is that it's still more than double the price of the average smartphone in India. So how many people are going to buy. It is to be determined. And then the other thing that it's got to contend with is they're going to be low cost five defines coming out in the months ahead from Chinese smartphone makers and the infrastructure may not be there on five G. We still don't know about that but there is a lot of marketing sizzle when you talk about five. G. It's a selling point. And so the allure of a phone. That may be speedier. That has five g technology and maybe a little bit faster might might make it harder for apple to sell these iphone. Essy's that don't have that technology and we talked about it already. Apple had some plans to release new. Iphones this fall. Do we expect those to still be on schedule? Given everything we're seeing right now with a pandemic that's like the the multi-billion world of Apple Right. It's like well. We'll products be delivered on time and that's really like everything's so uncertain right now. We do know that. Foxconn largest contract manufacturer has the production has returned to seasonal levels. But the way that apple rolls out and develop since phones is it really beginning stages and those stages began right in the middle of the corona virus outbreak and win those. Those factories really shut down in February. So it's an open question as to whether or not ABBA can make up for lost time and get these phones out in the fall in September when it usually does many analysts are already expecting the company to be at least a month late if not more all right. Reporter trip mickle. Thanks so much for joining us. I'm

Apple updates Macbooks
"There are new MAC books folks. You have are two new books. Which one do you have? <hes> I'm reviewing the macbook air. The new twenty nineteen macbook Air Dancy for is reviewing the new twenty nineteen Mac book pro and tree pro little pro. We don't have a name for here's what happened. <hes> apple updated the air they added a true tone display to it and they drop the price by one hundred bucks and then they took the Mac book escape which was the macbook pro that had the actual button function enro- and only two ports on the side and they put the Touch Barn the touch pad on it and they updated the processor and they left it with just two ports and that I don't remember the exact price there but it's like two hundred bucks more than the air now so those are the two computers that are new alongside those things the most important thing they did in my opinion is instead of updating the MAC book a little Itty bitty Mac book they just murdered it killed Italy just destroyed it so you. I think I saw you say this in slack okay. You were like the killing. The twelve inch Mac book is Apple Walking back. Its entire five year plan for these computers. I think so you can you defend that so okay it all stems from the very first computer of this new generation of macbooks was the MAC book. It was the first one with the keyboard word the new design the new tiered the battery and most of all they just called it Mac book. They didn't call it MAC book air. They didn't call it Mac Book Ultra whatever they're like this is Mac book and everything else is is like macbook pro and that was meant to be like the default and in the intervening years the keyboards went sideways apple forgot that people like processor updates and expect so just didn't bother making in those the very clearly didn't know what they wanted to do with this lineup and you could tell they didn't know what to do because their bestselling Mac was the one that was not part of this new generation it was the macbook air forever and so they finally really updated the macbook air and just made you know either a slimmed-down macbook pro or a beefed up macbook macbook take it. I think it's more of a slimmed-down Mac book pro called it the air throughout the world and it was like Oh yeah that's that's what we want. That's the the thing we've been asking you for five years and so of course they they're killing the MAC book because they're like Oh. Well people just want this thing and this vision of the future of what Max are going to be. We need to turn that dialed on a little bit. Go back to the other kind of keyboard and we'll do that stuff next year in the meantime <hes> at least we've got like normalized lineup so I think that the main problem is that the air brand name is too good like people love the macbook Luke Air. They love the name they know what it is the default computer it's it's the Joanna Stern for two hundred dollars more you can get a Mac book air right like it is that computer in so they what they should have done was called that my God did this entire.
Apple starts shipping India-made iPhones to European markets
"Big news for Apple and India to end the week I that country's economic times says iphone six as an iphone seven units made in India are now being exported to the European markets contract manufacturer wistron is said to be cranking those out the way the report sees it the move to use India as an export hub would bear well for both the country and apple while it would cement India's position edition isn't attractive destination for foreign investment for not just domestic market but also exports apple would benefit by fulfilling requirements for other markets from outside China its largest base for contract manufacturing for iphones phones of course China has been a dicey proposition of late. Thanks to the heating and Cooling and heating trade war between the country and the U._S.. Economic Times reminds readers of recent reports that had apple apple asking suppliers such as Wistron Foxconn and Petron to see about moving fifteen percent to thirty percent of their apple production out of China. Thanks to the simmering trade war. The peace has industry watchers. Archer saying they think apple is treating India more as a production hub than a significant market. It is worth remembering though that's pretty much how apple treated China back in the day as well. It's kind of an inspiring collection of gears ears and springs. If apple can rent production of iphones out of India that avoids some potential tariffs impossible blow back from the Chinese government at the same time it can stop paying import tariffs on iphones coming into India India because hi there being made in India that increased production could attract more manufacturing to India which means more jobs leading to fingers crossed a better standard of living ending with more people able to afford this stuff that apple's making but wait. There's more quoting the report apples local business will also benefit from scaling up manufacturing operations helping it avoid import duties thus allowing it to price its devices lower or invest the cost savings and it's retail chain besides scaled up local manufacturing could help apple meet local sourcing norms that are a pre requisite for opening its own stores in in India but wait. There's still more call to Mac highlights or Reuters report. That says Foxconn is ramping up production of iphone tennis an IPHONE ten are in India with an eye toward selling them on the subcontinent the way the colts sees it. The phones will be less expensive than imported units and might improve apple's sales in the huge potential market kind of exciting. I mean most people in India will not be able to afford an iphone. Ten are even one made in the country but by dodging the import tariff more people will be able to afford one then can currently by this Nellie while the colts has apple will sell the two thousand eighteen iphones in India the Economic Times piece as apple plans to export between seventy percent and eighty percent of the two hundred fifty thousand late model iphones. It's heard Foxconn will produce in India. India each month put the Foxconn iphone ten s ten our stuff and the maybe pile the economic times piece attributes that news to industry watchers while Reuters attributed two unnamed sources but there are too many good reasons for apple and Foxconn to Wanat and too many heads said they'll try for it to completely discount talk.

That's P. L. A. N. E T, M dot com. What happens if the trade war hits the tech industry from American public media? This is marketplace tech. I'm Tracey Samuelson in for Molly would. The Trump administration is hearing testimony this week from businesses and industry groups affected by a pending fourth round of tariffs on Chinese imports. If an acted these tariffs would cover an additional three hundred billion dollars worth of products. Meaning nearly everything we buy from China would face a tariff that's left, some tech companies scrambling to try and shift their supply chains away from China. Others are lobbying to try and prevent the tariffs. But all face a similar question. Whether to pass the extra cost of tariffs along to consumers. Let's talk more about this in quality assurance, a segment where we take a deeper look at big tech story. See, we covers tech for the Wall Street Journal from Beijing. We talked about how tariffs will affect various consumer technology with sick. The iphone, for instance, a lot of phone parts come from China. There were some reports from J P, Morgan that said that if these terrorists take place than it would could raise the cost of an iphone of an iphone by v. Fifteen twenty percent and unclear whether apple had pass those costs and consumers but we're talking about one hundred fifty dollars increase in the price of the iphone ten if that happens so you mentioned, I phones already are there other products that we should be looking for in terms of the impact of these tears. There's a lot of component so anything that requires a computer chip might be affected. A lot of computer chips, and other components are, are manufactured out here and there's also some indirect costs that could rise because of these tariffs to for instance, stuff that an internet provider like Comcast wireless provider like AT and T buys, they need cell phone tower quit -ment. They need internet routers, and that stuff is facing tariffs to so while AT and T would be, for instance, paying those tariffs. They might raise the cost of your wireless plant because they have to pay more for that equipment. Right. And that's the choice companies face right now as their costs rise, you detectives, they have to decide whether to absorb those costs or how much they might pass on to consumers. Are we hearing anything from companies? To what they're planning to do. Cisco for instance already face a ten percent tariffs since last year. And they said, okay, ten percent we can absorb that. But once they went up to twenty five percent last year. They said we had to raise prices for some of our equipment. We just can't absorb a twenty five percent increase. A lot of people can take ten, they can't do twenty five and companies can also try and avoid the tariffs by shuffling their supply chains to bypass China altogether. What are we hearing from tech companies about their ability to do that? Yeah. Love companies have said they've already taken steps to move production to their other factories outside China. Cisco's done at Ericsson which also makes cell phone tower equipment. They've done that too, but not every company can do that. And there's some logistics involved for instance, if you wanted to move production from China to Vietnam, maybe you already have a factory there. But do you have enough workers to work at that factory? It's not easy to snap your fingers and say, we'll just move it to another country. It's going to be difficult rate, and even if they could there's going to be cost associated with that there's going to be cost. And you might not be able to manufacture a product as quickly or as well, as you did the foreign China, St. we with the Wall Street Journal next week, President Trump and Chinese president Xi Jinping will meet on the sidelines of the g twenty in Japan. Both countries are hoping to make progress after negotiations stalled last month. And now for some related links, US Trade Representative Robert lighthizer testified before Senate, and house committees this week and defended Trump's use of tariffs on Chinese goods, quote, if there's a better idea than tariffs. I'd like to hear it. He told the Senate finance committee, also fortune took a look at why analysts expect iphone production to largely remain in China, despite an offer from Foxconn which assembles the phones to move production to its facilities outside China. I'm Tracey Samuelson. And that's marketplace tech. This is a PM. This is Molly would host of marketplace tech the podcast, where you can hear conversations like legendary Sifi, author, William Gibson, talk about the problems created by the uneven distribution of wealth and technology, helping you think differently about the world you live in every weekday.

"Quickies here then this Super Bowl situation. I hope you're not going to participate in this yearly fraud. Yeah. That in a second. Talk about fraud here though, and you know, Foxconn, right FOX, CNN Foxconn. Well, is this a Foxconn job, of course, Foxconn is the electronics manufacturing behemoth that makes a whole lot of the apple products, the iphone the, ipads. They've got these massive Chinese factories and campuses that are like cities with tens of thousands of workers. You know, putting together these millions of devices and remember, President Trump and the governor Scott Walker, the former Wisconsin governor, this was a big deal at Foxconn was gonna create thirteen thousand jobs, and they were going to build this this massive facility and spend billions of dollars building a manufacturing facility in Wisconsin. Well is this turning into a Foxconn job? Now, the word out today is that this planned ten billion dollar manufacturing campus. Well, not so much. Now, it's going to be maybe a research unit research hub and not this big huge manufacturing facility, providing a whole lot of blue collar jobs. They say they're committed to still creating a whole bunch of jobs, but. This doesn't sound like anywhere near the, you know, the big PR, the hoop de doo, and the hoop and everything that had been promised. Yeah. So they were supposed to have an employment target of hiring. I think two hundred and sixty were promised to be hired in twenty eighteen as to ramp things up and they hired. Fewer than that. But now, it doesn't look any of these goals are going to be met. So again is this is this was I read earlier, I I did some reading earlier that Foxconn has a history also of making promises that they don't deliver. And now they're saying that this electron IX factory to build screens to build actual display screens that we have no place in the US for this. So that wasn't there. Tune a couple of years ago was it. This a FOX job. Is the question you all kinds of tax credits tax incentives. All I mean. That just pisses me off. Oh, speaking of apple by the way. I thought this was interesting. I've made it clear I don't use an apple iphone, I use an Android device. I do have an apple ipad. I'm a PC user. I've got several laptops that a PC's not the max. But I do have an ipad that I use. You know, what I travel I'll use that for for surfing and doing prep and sending emails and I do use an ipad. When I'm in the northern studio, I use an ipad and FaceTime to connect and have visual connection with my Tampa crew and Tampa master control. So I do have an apple device, but just one actually I have to because I have an ipod I've, you know, older generation ipod, which I still use. When I ski for instance, I'll crank that thing up for hours at a time. But of course, the story came out regarding apple and the security flaw in FaceTime group chat, which they shut down to fix apparently is coming sometime this week. Whereas you could dial somebody up they wouldn't answer. But you could still listen in. And it turns out a fourteen year old kid figured this out and tried to warn apple for about a week. A fourteen year old kid in Arizona. And his mother tried to contact and worn apple for over a week apparently or battle week say, hey, there's a flaw. Michelle Thompson, fourteen year old son grant, they discovered this problem back on January twentieth. And they reported it to the company's Wall Street Journal.

So there's people who are saying that you cannot use the Great Lakes water for a private corporation. That's sitting like not even fully within the basin. Yeah. So that's adding they're arguing it in a couple of months, and they're gonna presumably create a bunch of like toxic sludge so much toxic sludge like LCD plants create like several several several tons of sludge a day. And this Foxconn factory sets on wetlands a lot of the environmental regulations were waived. They don't have to actually like be careful about what they do with the wetlands as they build the factory. And they haven't yet said what they're. Gonna do with the toxic sludge..

"Twelve eighteen Jeff Wagner WTMJ. Alright. If you will recall the Foxconn initiative to build the new potentially transformative Foxconn plant in the southern portion of our listening area Mount Pleasant. That was supported by the governor in the legislature, the various deals and concessions that had to be made to get Foxconn. Here came almost exclusively on partisan lines. There were two or three Democrats in the assembly who voted for the Foxconn deal. I'm not sure off the top of my head. If any Democrats in the state Senate voted for the Foxconn deal. So this was pretty much exclusively a Republican deal. Scott Walker negotiated the arrangements the legislature with very very little support from the Democrats ended up passing it, and it has been at least early on. It was an election issue. I think as time went on some of the Democrats who were running for office realized that this wasn't going to get anywhere. It wasn't necessarily getting in may traction. But they bailed on it. But it has been a. A criticism an ongoing criticism of Democrats in Wisconsin. Foxconn was a bad deal. The state gave away too much. It's gonna drain. It's going to destroy the environment. We're not getting enough out of this, etc. Etc. Corporate welfare you've heard all the arguments. Right. But as long as you had a Republican governor Republican controlled legislature. It was going to happen. We've now broken ground and the on the Foxconn project, and they're building the plant. All right. That doesn't mean the Foxconn is a done deal. Now. I I understand that. There's all these contracts that are signed into this various commitments that are made. But the truth of the matter is despite all the progress that is going on. If you have a governor Tony Everts that comes in and is fueled by support within the democrat party, Ken may kill the Foxconn project. I don't know. Can they? Slow the Foxconn project down dramatically. Absolutely Tony Everts before the election already said that he was open to looking at some of these pollution deals that they had made with Foxconn to allow them to do this that or the other thing, and you have a lot of the environmentalists who have some concerns about this. This was railroaded through Tony eager said he was open to looking at that. It is quite cook. Completely possible completely possible that you could have a governor Tony Evert who decided you know, what we are going to side with the environmentalists, for example, who have a lot of concerns about the USA Faulk Foxconn drawing water from Lake Michigan or this or that or the other thing and you couple that with now a democrat attorney general who might take a different look at this. And even though you've got the Foxconn deal that is in place. You could have the state government conceivably decide that we're now going to be if not overtly hostile to it. We're now going to start putting the brakes on this because we're going to demand more environmental review, or whatever it is possible. I think that you could see Foxconn significantly delayed by again using agency review and things of that. Or maybe like, I say, even siding with certain people who might be inclined to bring court cases. Do I think you could necessarily kill it. Well, we'll not not directly, but could an Iverson administration make it so difficult for Foxconn that you have a substantial delay in its operations. All right. Let's open up. The phone lines. Are numbers are number is four one four seven nine nine one six twenty. That's the accurate mortgage talk and text line. Right. Well, we've always talked about Foxconn from the perspective of this is kind of a done deal. You've got. The Republicans in the legislature who wanted you've got the governor who wants it. Well, now now, it's a different question. Because theoretically, you were happy having a governor coming in in January who might be hostile to Foxconn. You have an attorney general coming in who might be hostile to what's going on at Foxconn, and you have Democrats in the legislature, admittedly in the minority, but who have been already hostile to Foxconn. So here's my question at this stage should governor elect soon to be governor Tony should he be moving to if not kill Foxconn to slow down the pace of its development four one four seven nine nine one six twenty. That's the accurate mortgage talk and text line where do we go from here. And for people who opposed it is this the chance to perhaps kill it before it really takes off four one four seven nine nine one six twenty. What do we do? Now.

They go after Foxconn for instance I, mean look. The Foxconn bet horses left. The barn already they're. Building the plant laws in. Place buying buildings companies are working with them they have signed contracts they continue acquire more property it's a talking, point that's like a year. Old right for them for them to stand up there and, say somehow like me as governor I'm gonna unilaterally do away with. Foxconn went first, of all you're certainly going to have a Republican. Assembly and probably, a Senate so you know the governor just can't. Unilaterally undo the Foxconn contracts so I mean that ship has sailed that, it's, going to happen twenty years is.
