The Key Takeaways From Apple’s (AAPL) ‘Hi, Speed’ Event For Investors

As expected, at its “Hi, Speed” event Apple (AAPL) debuted its several new 5G iPhone models, expanded its iPhone lineup from as low as $399 to a high as $1099, and introduced a new device, the HomePod Mini. Along with the new products, CEO Tim Cook continued to reinforce the company’s commitment to privacy, calling out how the feature is intrinsic within each device. But the item that caught our attention was the special offers that were announced by mobile carriers for Apple’s new iPhone models.

Early on in the event, Hans Vestberg, Chairman and CEO of Verizon (VZ) appeared to discuss his company’s 5G nationwide network and 5G Ultra-Wideband offering, including a focus on network capacity in stadiums, airports, and music venues – if anyone can remember what those are. Investors were apparently impressed by what Vestberg had to say as his company’s share price, having dropped over

Orbita Launches New Adverse Event Module to Ease Reporting Burdens

BOSTON, Oct. 14, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Orbita, the leading provider of HIPAA-compliant conversational voice and chat solutions for healthcare and life science organizations, today launched a new module designed to help pharmaceutical companies better detect and report adverse events. The new platform-agnostic Adverse Event module, built on the latest technology in machine learning and natural language processing, integrates into existing chat services to accurately detect and seamlessly assist users in reporting adverse reactions to medications, ultimately improving the efficiency and timeliness of adverse event reporting.

Machine learning fuels seamless and accurate reporting

Chatbots are an increasingly popular tool for patient support programs, but few are equipped to accurately flag if a patient is having a medication-induced side effect, which can hinder pharmacovigilance processes and success. Orbita’s new Adverse Event module draws from a robust corpus of medical and conversational data, while machine learning continually improves the module to increase

Here’s everything Apple announced at its iPhone 12 event

Apple made us wait to get a glimpse of its 2020 iPhone lineup, and now it’s easy to see why. All told, it announced four new iPhone models on Tuesday. Add that a more affordable HomePod mini speaker, and it was a jam-packed event.

Apple didn’t lead off with the iPhone 12, but it was probably the device most people tuned in to see. The company’s latest mainstream iPhone improves upon the iPhone 11 in several notable ways. To start, it has a new OLED display with the company’s True Tone tech and a much sharper 2,532 by 1,170 resolution. It also adopts the same flat-edged design as Apple’s recently announced iPad Air. Moreover, it’s thinner and smaller than its predecessor, and if Apple’s claims are accurate, more durable as well. The latter is thanks to a new Ceramic Shield glass layer over the display

Apple’s 2020 iPhone Event Had An Unmistakable Undercurrent That Was All About Accessibility

Apple this morning held its second event in as many months, announcing a new HomePod Mini and a range of new iPhones. The iPhone is undeniably Apple’s crown jewel product, and the new ones look as stellar as ever, while the baby HomePod feels like something Cupertino should’ve launched years ago.

Forget 5G networking. Forget the Pro Max’s LiDAR sensor and fancy camera tricks. Forget the (albeit delightful) new color finishes on both iPhones. Forget HomePod Mini doesn’t (for now?) support Spotify. If you’re someone who cares deeply about accessibility, disabled or not, the high-level take from today’s announcement was unmistakable. Everything Apple announced today has some sort of accessibility story that will define the user experience for legions of buyers with disabilities. It’s yet another lesson that accessible hardware matters just as much as accessible software.

Look no further than the reintroduction of MagSafe to the Apple
