Apple expected to unveil its first-ever 5G iPhone

Apple is expected to unveil the company’s first-ever 5G iPhone at its highly-anticipated event on Tuesday.

“To set the scene, it is the biggest unveil in probably a decade for [Tim] Cook,” tech industry analyst Dan Ives, managing director of equity research at Wedbush Securities, told ABC News. “I think it’s a once-in-a-decade product cycle around 5G.”

“Going into the launch event, it’s really Apple laying the groundwork for why consumers should upgrade to 5G, and what makes it such a transformational technology upgrade for the iPhone 12,” he added.

The event is slated to kick off at 1 p.m. ET and will be streamed live on Apple’s website. In its only promotional material for the event, Apple teased it would be about “speed” — which seemed to confirm the leaks and reports that the next iPhone will be 5G-enabled.

Amazon, Rivian unveil first custom electric delivery vehicle

  • Amazon unveiled the first of its three custom electric delivery vehicles made by Michigan-based Rivian on Thursday morning.
  • The vans would hit the road in 2021, it said, and can last up to 150 miles on a single charge.
  • The vehicles are Alexa-integrated, and have multiple exterior cameras to give the driver a 360-degree view of their surroundings.
  • The custom vans also include a “dancefloor” inside the driver’s cabin, Amazon added — likely referring to the open space where the driver can move around.
  • Amazon aims to have 10,000 of these vans in operation as early as 2022, and 100,000 by 2030.

Huawei will unveil the Mate 40 on October 22nd

Huawei is about to unveil its next big phone — and a swan song of sorts. The Chinese tech giant has announced that it will reveal the Mate 40 phone series at a virtual event on October 22nd at 8AM Eastern. It didn’t say much about what the new Mates would entail (“unprecedented power” isn’t really a clue), but it’s safe to say that the processor will be the most talked-about feature.

The company has already confirmed that the Mate 40 will be its last phone with a high-end Kirin chip, at least for a while. Now that the US has slapped Huawei with trade restrictions that led chip manufacturers like TSMC to back away, the company simply doesn’t have access to cutting edge processing tech for future models. The 5-nanometer Kirin chip in the Mate 40 expected to be fast and efficient, but it’s not expect to reach other

(Reuters) – Tesla Inc CEO Elon Musk said improvements to be unveiled at the electric-vehicle maker’s “Battery Day” event would not reach “serious high-volume production” until 2022, knocking its shares down.

Analysts were expecting Musk to unveil at the event plans for Tesla to produce its own battery cell as it seeks to cement its lead over General Motors , Volkswagen and others.

But in a post on Twitter ahead of the Tuesday event, Musk said: “This affects long-term production, especially Semi, Cybertruck & Roadster, but what we announce will not reach serious high-volume production until 2022.”

Tesla expects significant shortages in 2022 and beyond, Musk cautioned, adding it intended to increase cell purchases from Panasonic <6752.T>, South Korea’s LG Chem <051910.KS>, China’s CATL <300750.SZ>, and possibly other partners.

AMD to unveil Radeon RX 6000 GPU family on Oct. 28

AMD is set to announce its new line of Radeon RX 6000 graphics chips at an event on Oct. 28, the chipmaker said Thursday.

The new GPUs will be based on AMD’s new RDNA 2 architecture, which could bring a 50% performance-per-watt boost and “uncompromising 4K gaming.”

Exact details and specifications for the upcoming chips are still sparse. However, AMD said that the Oct. 28 event will let users learn more about RDNA 2, Radeon RX 6000 chips, and the company’s “deep collaboration with game developers and ecosystem partners.”

Along with increased performance and power efficiency, the GPUs will also feature ray-tracing capabilities and variable-rate shading. That’ll bring the AMD chips more in-line with main rival Nvidia. Rumors from earlier in 2020 also suggest that the RDNA 2 cards could come equipped with up to 16GB of GDDR6 video memory, a 256-bit bus, and more fans for additional cooling.

GOP senators unveil new bill to update tech liability protections

The Online Freedom and Viewpoint Diversity Act would modify Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act by conditioning the protection on whether content decisions are “objectively reasonable,” while also limiting the things platforms can act on.

Section 230 of the 1996 Communications Decency Act, which has come under increased scrutiny since President Trump targeted it in an executive order in May, gives internet companies immunity from lawsuits for content posted on their sites by third parties and allows them to make “good faith” efforts to moderate content.

The law is considered foundational for online companies, and the threat of having it revoked has increasingly been proposed as a cudgel to compel platforms to make
