Apple & Samsung To Profit As U.S. Ban Cripples Huawei

UK-based chip architecture company ARM cuts ties with Huawei following Trump ban

Against this backdrop, some customers in Singapore and the Philippines have rushed to sell their Huawei phones, according to retailers and online marketplace data. The newly enacted US ban is likely to see that figure drop to no more than 200 million units in 2019, whereas Fubon Research previously predicted the company will manage some 258 million device shipments over the same period.

The group also said it would phase out the use of Huawei equipment in the most sensitive "core" elements of its network infrastructure. Now, chip designer ARM has also reportedly backed from supporting Huawei, as mentioned by BBC.

They're already working on their own operating system in case Android will eventually not work for Huawei devices but that will be a huge challenge for them to convince developers to come on board. However, whether or not Huawei itself will continue to make Arm chips in the future is still an open question. The chairman also said that the temporary extension of the license for 90 days from US companies, which was granted as relief by the US Commerce Department would not mean much.

Japanese conglomerate Panasonic Corp joined a growing list of global companies that is disengaging from Huawei Technologies Co Ltd, the world's second-largest seller of smartphones and the largest telecom-gear maker, saying it had stopped shipments of some components.

Microsoft to start automatically pushing Windows 1903 update within weeks
Microsoft is known to keep its users updated with the latest version of Windows update patches, which is why everyone prefers it. However, even this update does not have a patch to protect against an interesting, simple and yet highly potent security flaw.

Chinese foreign ministry spokesman Lu Kang said USA politicians have spread rumours about Huawei without providing evidence.

Huawei said Wednesday that it recognised "the pressure" placed on its suppliers, and that it was "confident this regrettable situation can be resolved".

Following the announcement of the United States ban, the risks for Huawei came into focus when Google, whose Android operating system powers most of the world's smartphones, said it would cut ties with Huawei as a result of the ban.

Although the United States has delayed the ban for 90 days, key manufacturing partners such as chipmaker ARM have nonetheless suspended business with the Chinese tech giant, and other partners including Panasonic and Toshiba look to be following suit.

Two Japanese carriers postpone release of Huawei phones
EE went further, explaining that it was consistency of support that was forcing it to freeze its Huawei plans. The BT Sport app in HDR will be exclusive to 5G plans for EE customers and is worth £15 a month.

The bigger fear is that curbing imports of Huawei equipment could prompt Beijing to retaliate.

The state-owned China Daily newspaper said U.S. concerns about Chinese surveillance equipment maker Hikvision were for the self-serving aim of claiming the "moral high ground" to promote Washington's political agenda.

While the Chinese company denies the allegations, other countries such as Australia and New Zealand also have blocked the Shenzhen-based firm from bidding for critical contracts due to national security concerns.
