Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has told investors that all three iPhone models slated for release next year would support 5G technology.

Kuo said earlier that the next year’s 5.4-inch and 6.7-inch iPhone models would support 5G while a third — a cheaper 6.1-inch iPhone XR successor — would only access LTE networks.


“Now he has issued a new report that all three iPhone models would support 5G,” The Verge reported on Sunday.

“We now believe that all three new 2H20 iPhone models would support 5G for the following reasons. (1) Apple has more resource for developing the 5G iPhone after the acquisition of Intel base-band business. (2) We expect that the prices of 5G Android smartphones will decline to $249-349 in 2H20.

“We believe that 5G Android smartphones, which will be sold at $249-349, would only support Sub-6GHz. But the key is that consumers will think that 5G is the necessary function in 2020,” Kuo was quoted as saying.

According to reports, Apple would continue to use Qualcomm modems for its 2020 lineup despite new acquisition.

The recent acquisition of Intel’s smartphone modem chip business for $1 billion would give the company more resources for developing the 5G iPhone.

When it comes to burgers, its not just the patty that makes it all worthwhile... one can't forget the cheese or the crunchy lettuce either.

When it comes to burgers, its not just the patty that makes it all worthwhile... one can't forget the cheese or the crunchy lettuce either. In India, McDonald's ensures their burgers use the freshest produce, which means that don't use any ordinary lettuce. The iceberg variety was first introduced in India by McDonald's, as early as the 90s, at a time when not many people were familiar with lettuce and used cabbage instead. Lettuce is a key ingredient known for its crunch, its odourless and is ideal for salads, sandwiches and burgers.

The fast food giant collaborated with local Indian suppliers and pioneered the local production of iceberg lettuce in the country. Their lettuce undergoes 30 quality and food safety checks. After harvesting, the lettuce is pre-cooled to a temperate of below 40C at the farm gate to maintain its freshness. It is then transported in refrigerated vehicles to the world-class processing plant where it is shredded to a measured length and width and then washed and cleaned thoroughly before being vacuum-packed.

Bhārata bhumi is conducive for the practice of one or all the paths enjoined by the Vedas

By Devakinanda Ji

Derived from the Sanskrit word muc ("to free"), the term moksha literally means freedom from samsara, release from the cycle of rebirth impelled by the law of karma. The transcendent state attained as a result of being released from the cycle of rebirth.

The five rockets are in the project report stage and would come into operation in the future, said N Sudheer Kumar, Director, Capacity Building Programme Office (CBPO), Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO).

The Indian space agency is working on a fleet of medium to heavy lift rockets with a carrying capacity ranging from 4.9 ton to 16.3 ton, said a senior official. The five rockets are in the project report stage and would come into operation in the future, said N Sudheer Kumar, Director, Capacity Building Programme Office (CBPO), Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO). He was speaking at the International Space Conference and Exhibition, organised by Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) in virtual mode recently. When that happens ISRO can not only launch its own communication satellites but also enter the global communication satellite launch market.

Kumar also said ISRO is working on upgrading Geosynchronous Satellite Launch Vehicle-Mk III (GSLV-Mk III) which can carry up to four ton to Geo Transfer Orbit (GTO). Normally rockets eject the communication satellites into GTO. From GTO the satellites will be taken to geostationary orbit by firing their engines. India uses Ariancespace's Ariane rocket to orbit its communication satellites weighing over four ton. According to Kumar, ISRO is also working on upgrading the lifting capacity of GSLV-Mk III to six ton and 7.5 to GTO.
