The ongoing fight in the United States vs China has xiaomi-tech news focus less on the Chinese tech giant Xiaomi. I suspect that will change once the two countries work out their differences.
In a future blog I will update readers on tech giant Huawei, who has recently had a number of setbacks since the US government banned the company from doing business in the US.
But for now all the tech news was focused squarely on Apple.
Mac held its yearly Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) in San Jose on Monday and tossed a great deal of new stuff at us, including a Mac Pro and Pro Display XDR, iOS 13 witha dark mode, MacOS Catalina, a working framework only for the iPad called iPadOS and new highlights for Watch fans.
Apple had a bunch of protection and security changes woven all through the entire presentation. I trust these were reported, to a limited extent, as a safeguard to the ongoing Supreme Court deciding that customers were allowed to sue Apple for supposed antitrust charges.
It is not necessarily the case that Apple's protection and security improvements in its new emphases of iOS 13 and MacOS (Catalina)are not part of an authentic worry for customers, yet I nearly got the feeling that these updates were a piece of a resistance of Apple's environment approach.
Using a closed system approach Apple seems to be criticizing their chief competitor Android arguing, being the sole provider of apps for the iOS ecosystem “…can protect customers from piracy and security related problems with their mobile and PC devices.” The statements seems to imply Google cannot provide the same level of security because they offer an open system.
But at the end of the day the real concern is Apple’s bottom line. Money.
