iPhone Production Steady-Kuo; Google Will Remove Sensitive Location DataPosted: July 4, 2022 Filed under: Uncategorized Leave a comment
Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo doubts a Digitimes report that says TSMC’s iPhone 14 orders have been cut by 10%. In a thread on Twitter, the analyst says the shipment forecast for iPhone 14 components and EMS remains the same as he reported early this week. Acording to 9to5mac.com, Kuo says that “Apple’s slight adjustments for iPhone shipment forecasts (single-digit increase/decrease) are common, including new models before mass productions.” “Apple doesn’t usually markedly change shipment forecasts for new iPhones (double-digit increase/decrease) before launching new models and confirming the actual market demand/feedback.” He expects them to still produce about 90 million phones in the first wave of production.
Google has announced in a blog post that it would remove Location History data about some “particularly personal” places from a Google account shortly after someone visits. Locations that will have their data deleted include “medical facilities like counseling centers, domestic violence shelters, abortion clinics, fertility centers, addiction treatment facilities, weight loss clinics, cosmetic surgery clinics, and others.” TechCrunch reports that Fitbit users who use the device’s companion software as a period tracker currently must delete those entries one by one, but an easier way to “delete multiple logs at once” is on the way.
