30% for a first run is actually pretty good. Usually, yield rates are in the single digits for a new process - 14 nm in this case. It's a complicated recipe to get right before they make millions of them. Very common for this process to take many months to get the yield up.

Ok, this could extend the battery life of the iPhone since it's acting as source/sync over bluetooth for the watch. At least the comment said 'almost' stopped using.
Anyone notice the driver working with something he is apparently wearing on his head? He notices the camera then quickly stops adjusting it. Maybe some kind of heads-up display, similar to Google glass. While Glass was rolled out horribly from Google, the technology of augmented reality is interesting. Wonder what Apple is up to.
