Apple has a mountain to climb.
... She probably won't be convinced till her kids start using it and she looks old fashioned and foolish.

Dear Apple and Mr. Cook, standards dropping much? Becoming less committed?
Jiang's defense lawyer has so far declined to comment but Zhou's told Portland's KOIN that his client is innocent. "Mr Zhou was not aware of any alleged counterfeiting," he said, " and we believe Mr Zhou will be vindicated."
Riiight and the devil didn’t know he was stealing.
I don't recall Apple making any "unsubstantiated assertions". I recall a business announcement that they were taking it in-house (something like that) and left it at that. I recall Imagination making public their shocked reaction even though they have known that both parties have discussed this decision back in 2015(?). Understandably they were upset, but management should have planned ahead for situations like this before it happens. No company should place all their eggs in one basket. Samsung knows this and they know they shouldn't rely on Apple to depend on their LED and OLED screens. And Apple knows they can't rely on just Samsung for their screens and chips, so they have been diversifying their sources. They're both far-sighted and agressive competitors. Perhaps Imagination should've followed their example.
"Imagination has made excellent progress both operationally and financially over the last 18 months until Apple's unsubstantiated assertions and the subsequent dispute forced us to change course," said Imagination Technologies CEO Andrew Heath. "The acquisition will ensure that Imagination — with its strong growth prospects — remains an independent IP licensing business, based in the UK, but operating around the world."
"Our interest in boom is driven by its vision to enable greater human connection and more empathetic natural and cultural experience through ecologically conscientious design," advised Emerson Collective managing partner Andy Karsner in a press release.
That’s some fluffy PR speak there.
