Huawei threat to national security, US not going to do business with them: Trump

Washington: US President Donald Trump on Saturday said America will not do any business with Chinese tech giant Huawei.

As such the US is not only denying Huawei access inside the country but also is asking other countries to follow suit. "We're not going to do business with Huawei. We're not doing business with them. And I really made the decision," Trump told reporters at the White House. "It's much simpler not to do any business with Huawei. So, we're not doing business with Huawei.

iPhones to Come Up with 5G in the Year 2020

The first 5G phones are all set to hit the market next year. Motorola is planning to bring next-gen connectivity via a Mod for the Z3, and companies like LG and OnePlus have promised to deliver the tech baked into handsets at some point in 2019. On the other hand, iPhone users may have to wait a little longer. The technology is, of course, an inevitability for Apple so it’s just a question that when will it arrive. A report anticipated the timing around a year and a half out. The “source with knowledge of Apple’s plans” put the 5G iPhone’s arrival at some point in 2020, with Intel supplying the tech this time out.
