Cellphone app will no alert if someone within close vicinity of Covid-19 affected person


In order to stay away from a potential Covid-19 carrier, apps are being developed  that would warn if one is close to a affected person.

Apps to use Bluetooth signals to track phones the user comes into contact with and  now people will be alerted if they may have been exposed to someone with Covid-19. However, the app will only work if a person using the app who has been tested positive for Covid-19 and has uploaded his data to a public database. If there's a match, the person will receive a message indicating when and where they might have been exposed, along with guidance as to whether they should just watch for symptoms, seek testing, or self-quarantine.




Apple and Google are joining forces to develop technology where smartphones can warn users that they may potentially be exposed to coronavirus. 

However, the implementation has raised concerns over potential beaches of privacy, though the tech giants insist that the data will be anonymous and that 'privacy, transparency and consent are of utmost importance'. There's also the likelihood of a high number of false positives due to the imprecise nature of Bluetooth itself.

Apple planning to shift upto 30% of its production capacity from China


Amid US-China tussle and sanctions, there are more news, both good and bad pouring out from China and US stakeholders. 

The good news is that Apple is planning to shift upto 30% of its production capacity from China to Southeast Asia, which will create more jobs in the Southeast Asian countries and bring in more capital. And the bad news is that proportionally the Chinese workforce be badly hit due to this decision as they may be rendered jobless.

After sanctions imposed by US on Chineses tech giant Huawei, the sales of Apple products, specially the iPhones, has been badly hit as Chinese have thrown away their iPhones in favour of Huawei products.




It may be added that Apple depends heavily on manufacturing in China, which the company now thinks is too great a risk because a credit rating agency named Fitch said that it observes Apple, Dell Technologies Inc and HP as potential blacklist candidates if China planned to blacklist US companies as payback for restrictions on Huawei.


Although, Apple has not set any deadline for its suppliers to develop a proposal for transfer, Nikkei forecasts that it would take at least 18 months to initiate production after choosing a suitable location.
