iPhone 12 – more BAD news…

by birtanpublished on November 2, 2020

Ah yes another episode of FPT another round of good hand bad news for Tim Cook in the gang what tech news and will it doesn't suck of course you do hair okay I said it I saw your comments I said it one time only there it is there you go turn on notifications damn it yo what's going on guys welcome back from page tactical show that gives you all the latest tech news from one geeks head as we know that that is you happy Tuesday that's it that's the intro okay let's get started alright so first up for the day story numero uno number one do you want the good news first or the

Bad news oh the bad news first huh okay here you go so we got a problem well less we and more them Apple they have a problem it's very rare that it happens but it does happen and this is one of those times where it does in fact happen Apple has actually put out an update for investors saying that well you should expect less money from us yep they're already warning that for q2 their revenue is going to be lower than expected and if you've been watching the show then this doesn't surprise you you sort of know why for those of you who

Haven't been caught up this is the word that I want to say but I cannot say this word because YouTube will do monetize this episode and suppress it and no one will see it so instead of saying this word say with me class we will all call it the beer flu so because of the beer flu Apple says their iPhone supply is temporarily constrained in fact here is the memo that Tim Cook sent out to employees I'm not going to read the whole thing because well I don't know how to read and you're not an employee but Tim does start out by thanking everyone for their dedication empathy

Understanding and care during all this stuff also mentioning that they have more than doubled their donation to supports everyone affected by the beer flu so this is bad news not good news at all for future phones like the iPhone 12 manufacturing this stuff is just going to be tougher this time around sure they're gonna be able to get some of it done but not all of it and because of that they're not gonna sell as many and because they don't sell as many they don't make as much money they're also not gonna be making as much money because well they have to shut down some

Stores there's not gonna be as many people leaving their homes to buy these products especially in a major market for Apple like China and yeah of course this means iPhone 12 future Apple products but it also means current ones in production those ones are going to be able to be produced less and by less and like just last week or maybe two weeks ago Tim was like hey everybody don't worry we're not affected by this turns out yeah actually they are now again if you watch the show you've heard me say that some of my sources in China have let me know that it's worse there

Than everyone thinks it is or at least that we're being told officially by the Chinese government which makes sense it's the Chinese government but either way I just heard recently that some of the factories that my source is sort of working are could open for another 25 days and that puts that puts a little bit of a strain on things because assuming things don't get worse right and they do get to open up 25 days from now it's still going to take a second for everything to warm back up in production to get right back on track so yeah more evidence suggesting just as I

Said that it's worse than we're being told but at the end of the day these are just fracking iPhones all right so what they're gonna be able to make less of them these are people we should care more about people people are in trouble right now and people are more important than your fracking iPhone stuff all right so next up before we jump into that last bit of Apple news for the day let's talk about TCL we haven't really talked about them before on the show have we ever I mean do we even have a logo prepared uh we'll just put something there that'll work that work

For you works for me work for you works for me so as you know Mobile World Congress was supposed to about to be happening but then they cancelled that because of the beer flu and one of those companies that was supposed to be at two Mobile World Congress this year as usual was TCL and they were apparently gonna show this this is a leaked image of a TCL prototype an expandable phone literally this is a phone that looks like a phone and it has a slide-out display you can expand it so obviously unlike the folding phones that we already have this

Does not fold in half there's effectively a second display that's underneath the first and you can slide it out from underneath there now the issue is that well this image doesn't give us like a lot to work with like okay we can see what it looks like when it is expanded when we do have that full display but when you not when you do the opposite unexpanded where diffract is the display go like guess it just folds back behind there behind that first screen which means it's gotta Bend all funny to get back there this also probably means that

Since there has to be room for that other screen to fit into when it's not expanded that when it is expanded and that other screen is pulled out that the that it's like empty in there just it's just a crevice so okay cool I guess I mean TCL is really impressive lately with their mobile offerings or what they're trying to do to get into the mobile market and this school that we can do this with technology right but like also why all right so last up let's talk about the good news for apple the Apple news that is good not bad the opposite of bad good good news it seems

That even though Apple has lowered expectations in terms of revenue because of the beer flu because they have to close some stores closed factories a lot of stuff is affected right but it seems like one thing that is not affected will be the iPhone 9 it's coming even with all the troubles we're still going to get it at least according to iPhone ticker a German website they are saying that Apple is going to hold the media event as planned by the end of March probably most likely Tuesday March 31st and that of course is when we will see the iPhone 9 or iPhone se 2 or whatever

You want to call it they also state that the actual launch and release of the phone will be on April 3rd now I'm not gonna buy it I'm not gonna buy the iPhone 9 I've said that before it's cool right it's familiar to a lot of people it's gonna be $400 so it's gonna sell a lot and it seems like at least according to our statistics and our stats here from page tech a lot of people are interested like I know this is nothing new right the design here it's not something that we've like never seen from Apple before but for some reason a lot of you seem to be interested I think

There's gonna be way more regular-ass people gonna be interested in in this phone and buy it a lot but even in the tech community on YouTube even in our audience there's a lot of you that are interested and I guess I'm curious as to as to why I mean I know why I'm interested right I'm still not gonna buy it but I know what its value is in the market I still understand that I guess I'm curious is like a tech community and people who usually sort of laugh at and mock Apple for not being I don't know innovative or whatever why are you interested a lot of people are

Interested I guess let me know down in the comments below didn't mean for that to rhyme but it did shoot me and that's it that's show hopefully you liked you learn something if you did hit the like button if you hate my stupid face the dislike button works too if you're new here subscribe and I'll see you guys to my room you
