Taiwanese fabless semiconductor company MediaTek has been trying to compete head on with ace Chipset makers such as Qualcomm and Huawei and it now is going to unveil its 5G chipset at a company event on November 26, media reports said.

The semiconductor firm was earlier focused on gaming and hence introduced a gaming-focus chip — the MediaTek G90 in the middle of this year.

“The chipset featured in the promo materials has the MT6885Z designation. Cross-referencing that with an earlier leak, we can assume this is the upcoming flagship-grade 7nm silicon, MediaTek is gearing-up for parthers like Oppo and Vivo,” the GSMArena reported on Saturday.

Some of the suggested specifications for the MT6885 should thus include Cortex-A77 CPU and Mali-G77 CPU cores as well as sub-6 GHz frequency support, it said. (IANS)

Apple providing Health Records to Veterans via iPhones
Apple has been working on partnerships with health care organizations to allow access to health records on its devices, promoting their privacy and security features.

Apple Inc on Wednesday said that U.S. military veterans who use its iOS devices and get medical care from the Veterans Health Administration will be able to access their health records on the devices.

The Department of Veterans Affairs runs the largest integrated health care system in the United States, with 9 million veterans enrolled and more than 1,200 facilities. Apple began working with the department this summer to allow access to health records from the system on iPhones and other Apple mobile devices running its iOS operating system.

Apple has been working on partnerships with health care organizations to allow access to health records on its devices, promoting their privacy and security features. Data stored in the health app on iPhones is encrypted in such a way that Apple cannot read the data, even if the data is backed up to Apple’s iCloud service.

Apple has also worked out similar health record access arrangements with about 400 groups in the health care industry, including Johns Hopkins, the University of California San Diego, Quest Diagnostics and Allscripts, the company said. Apple’s system allows the user to access records from all of those providers in one place on their device. (VOA)
