Apple Stands By Malala Fund

 

Malala Fund's Network
https://www.apple.com/newsroom/2018/07/apple-supports-malala-fund-expansion-in-latin-america/

Apple launches a collaboration between its 10 Apple Developer Academies in Brazil and Malala Fund to help progress girls’ education opportunities. The Malala Fund in Latin America is working to provide safe, quality secondary education and opportunities for girls. It will also offer grants to local advocates in Brazil. The advocates at Apple will join Malala Fund’s network of Gulmakai champions and implement projects all over the country. These projects  will feature a design to empower girls, inspire teachers and policymakers to develop their skills through programs, and positively affect school enrollment efforts and advocacy for education.

Malala Fund’s Network

Malala Fund’s network will be challenging the creativity and innovative minds of Apple Developer Academy students and Brazilian alumni. It will also give them the chance to collaborate with Malala Fund to develop and design apps that enhance the education opportunities for girls. This challenge will motivate the students to find ways to better enable Malala Fund’s network of Gulmakai champions around the world.  It will also help Malala to communicate and share best practices in a secure environment.

The Apple Developer Academy’s developers in Rio met Malala Yousafzai on Friday. They spoke with her when she was there to visit the students. She was there to discuss how important the developers are to the fund’s mission to provide education opportunities to girls all over the world.

Apple became Malala Fund’s first Laurete partner in January. Apple did this by enabling the Malala Fund to increase the amount of grants awarded by its Gulmakai Network. They will also fund new programs in India and Latin America. This is with the goal in mind of enhancing the opportunities for secondary education for over 100,000 girls.

Dating back to 2013, more than 3,000 students have gone through this experience at Brazil’s Apple Developer Academy program.  Moreover, there are 500 other students that are currently enrolled in 10 sites. The sites are all across Brasilia, Campinas, Curitiba, Fortaleza, Manaus, Porto Alegre, Recife, Rio de Janeiro, and Sao Paulo. The scholarship winners include the seventy-five Brazilian students who were present at the Worldwide Developer Conference. For more information on Apple’s support of Malala’s fund, click here.

Rumors Of New Apple ARM-Based Mac

According to DigiTimes , Apple is releasing a new ARM-based Mac product. This new ARM-based Mac product will likely be manufactured by Apple’s long time supplier, Pegatron. This rumor came  from a report on project “Kalamata.” “Kalamata” proposes that Apple is expecting to release ARM-based Macs in the future. The new Mac will include the use of a touchscreen, SIM card, GPS, compass, and water resistant feature that differ from the previous Macbook and Macbook Air.

The rumor, however, fails to comment on the use of the screen size, processor design, format, or keyboard, which implies that the new ARM-based Mac is similar to an IPad. The new Apple product, recently code-named as “Star,” will possibly be the project name under which Apple will release it’s ARM-based product. This ARM-based Mac will likely be similar to an IOS notebook. 

Pegatron’s Mac Prototypes 

Furthermore, prototypes for the new ARM-based product are underway. They will reveal the use of an Extensible Firmware Interface (EFI), similar to Apple’s Intel-based Macs. This suggests that an IOS ARM-powered Macbook will be Apple’s next move. Although DigiTimes did not release details  about Apple’s new project, it is likely that Pegatron will continue manufacturing these products. Pegatron will also ship these products to Apple’s headquarters in Cupertino, California.

Rumors about Apple’s ARM-based products, however, started speculating in 2010. Apple made efforts to expand their CPU design group in 2010. Expanding the CPU design group involves poaching and new acquisitions for Apple. Nonetheless, Apple’s efforts to launch new products like the ARM-based product continued until 2017. In 2017, Apple released a report that they were planning to cut back on Intel. Therefore, other reports show a similarity in performance between the MacBook Pro of single-core performance and the multicore performance. However, the multicore performance includes the original 15-inch MacBook Pro with Retina Display. 

With new rumors speculating about the release of an ARM-powered Mac manufactured by Pegatron, it should be exciting to see if Apple will be introducing this new product soon.

Downloading Your Stored Apple Information

Did you know that you are able to view all of your old Apple downloads, such as books and music, as well as past devices you’ve purchased? What Apple doesn’t do is store your personal information such as emails and locations. Aside from downloads, a log is kept about customer support queries for each time you reach out to ask any questions about your device or other Apple products.

Apple’s privacy response explains why they do not store other personal information here:

“Apple has always placed a priority on protecting our customers’ personal data, and we don’t collect or maintain a mountain of personal details about our customers in the first place. There are certain categories of information which we do not provide to law enforcement or any other group because we choose not to retain it. For example, conversations which take place over iMessage and FaceTime are protected by end-to-end encryption so no one but the sender and receiver can see or read them. Apple cannot decrypt that data. Similarly, we do not store data related to customers’ location, Map searches or Siri requests in any identifiable form.”

How to Download Your Apple Archive:

  • Go to Apple’s Privacy Policy page (https://www.apple.com/legal/privacy/en-ww/)
  • Scroll down to the section titled “Access to Personal Information.” It’s worth reading and says explains that Apple will provide you with a copy of the information it holds if you request it.
  • Click the “Privacy Contact Form” link.
  • Choose your language.
  • Select “I have a question about privacy issues” from the drop-down box.
  • Fill in your first and last name, email, subject and comments. I noted that I was requesting a copy of my personal information in the comments field.
  • Click submit.

After this, you’ll need to wait for Apple’s privacy team to contact you to; they will request some of the same personal information above, in addition to your Apple ID, a registered product serial number and a previous AppleCare support case number in order to verify your identity.

Apple’s Q3 Growth Spurt

Apple sales are on the rise according to their latest stock reportings. Setting a record high on Wednesday, Apple stocks rose 5% to $157.14 per share. With the highly anticipated new product release later this year, Apple stocks are expected to increase again before their Q4 reports are released.
This news comes one year after the quarterly revenue fell for the first time in 13 years due to decreased sale in the Chinese markets. This year, Apple reports 2% increase in phone sales in the Chinese markets, but iPhone sales are not the only Apple product on the rise. The number of iPad sales increased 15% which can be accredited to changes in features as well as price ranges. By lowering the base price, consumers were inclined to purchase upgrades to the base model furthering sales. The newly redesigned iMac and MacBook Pros are also reportedly gaining interest in the declining personal computer industry. Sales in iTunes and the app store have increased 22% since the last quarter.

Even with Apple’s growth in sales, other companies such as Google and Youtube are competing for the final quarter to see which Silicon Valley company prevails.

Google launched the Google Pixel earlier this year rivaling the iPhone and seems to be the solution to storage limits that iPhones often have. By using the Google cloud and allowing users free access to store millions of pictures rather than charging for storage increases, Google may be on top at the end of the year. Alphabet, the parent company to Google and Youtube successfully allocate funds that allow Youtube to grow as an advertising service and move into the autonomous car realm.

Facebook balances its earnings by limiting the amount of advertisements in news feeds by increasing the number of ads on their other platforms, Instagram and Facebook Messenger. Since it’s acquisition of Oculus, Facebook has taken a small loss as it struggles to come out on top on the virtual reality business.

Apple generally experiences cyclical sales, increasing rapidly as the new product drops in the Fall every two years. The holiday season also aids sales as consumers rush to buy their loved ones the newest technology on the market. Investors are hopeful to see the effect on sales this year, as the newest products come 3 years following the last big release.

The iPhone 8 is rumored to cost $1,000 which is an increase over the standard $800 predecessors. Will the sharp increase in price turn consumers away or will it further increase Apple’s net worth? As new information and specifications are leaked, consumers will be the ultimate deciding factor in how Apple performs in the final quarter. By the end of the third quarter, Apple has $45 billion in revenue and $262 billion in cash and marketable securities. Safe to say, they are expected to do well in the last quarter once initial excitement ends.
