Instead of mid-September, when Apple traditionally introduces new iPhones, the company was forced to delay the event because of manufacturing delays in China caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.

The big news this year: connectivity to the new, emerging speedy 5G wireless networks, hence Apple’s title for the event: “Hi, Speed.”

According to MacRumors, the models will be named the iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Pro, iPhone 12 Pro Max and a newer, smaller model, the iPhone 12 Mini.

Does Tesla’s Lithium Announcement Mean All Battery Makers Are Set To Become Miners?

The world is electrifying at a rapid pace and the mining industry seems to be becoming a quiet but key player in the electrification process. Tesla’s

recent ‘Battery Day’ announcements only highlight the incredible challenges facing the electricity storage market, and raise significant questions about how the market will evolve.

We know that demand for energy storage is surging to meet increasing demand for renewable energy and electrified transport. According to Maria Xylia at Sweco Sweden, only 3% of global capacity can be currently stored and energy demand itself is expected to increase over 50% to 2050. Storage is a fundamental necessity for the integration of renewables into a smoothly running and efficient energy system, and it needs to be cost-effective, high performance and safe.

As Dr. Young-hye Na, Manager, Materials Innovations for Next-Gen Batteries, IBM Research says, “Enabling better battery energy

Tesla’s big announcement on batteries has the potential to shape the future of electric cars

It’s the latest innovation push by the Silicon Valley car builder that has aimed to rewrite the rules on electric vehicles, making them performance-oriented and aspirational in a way that has eluded competitors. But electric vehicles constitute a small slice of the overall car market, and to expand, Tesla will need to reign supreme over not only the manufacturing of vehicles but also their lifeblood: batteries.

Tesla CEO Elon Musk took the stage Tuesday to announce plans for tackling that issue at a widely anticipated “Battery Day” event. Unlike at the company’s glitzy Cybertruck unveiling in Los Angeles last year, there was no blockbuster product announcement and no definitive hardware breakthrough.

Tesla instead sought to set its future agenda, headlined by its goal to build a $25,000 mass-market electric car — a niche its long-promised $35,000 Model 3 sedan failed to fill.
