That’s not to say Apple shouldn’t investigate the issue, assuming it hasn’t already done so. And if they haven’t, then someone’s head needs to roll at Apple.

80s_Apple_Guy said:Apple with it’s using USB-C for iPads but Lightning for others has no leg to stand on with this argument. It switched its laptops to USB-C creating huge ewaste. Apple likes to argue both sides of the coin when it comes to its costs. Very disingenuous.Smartphones have already saved the world massive amounts of waste. A manuals that took up binders now fit in an iPad, people no longer by cd’s or cassettes, barcode scanners, DSLRs, video cameras, safety equipment, diagnosis equipment, the list goes on and on for how much smartphones divert waste from the landfill (not just e-waste)

Those 'halo' features you mention are clearly having the desired effect. Apple is going to be behind in many areas for almost the entirety of 2019. Sales look to remain flat for Apple while Huawei has set new records for itself with every flagship it released in 2018, shifting almost 50,000,000 more units than in 2017.
Huawei's 2019 looks far more uncertain than Apple's:
a) Carriers around the world are abandoning plans to use Huawei for 5G networks
b) Bad press from the criminal charges levied agains CFO Meng Wanzhou, could hamper sales in North America
c) If Huawei is found in violation of Iran sanction like ZTE was, they could be banned from using US technology. At the very least they will be looking at Billions in fines and change of board of directors.
d) Trump is looking at issuing an executive order, banning Huawei and ZTE equipment from US. https://www.techradar.com/news/trump-considering-formal-us-ban-on-huawei-and-zte
e) Huawei stock is down 50% for the year. Not a good omen for a company that is supposed to "set new records" this year. https://www.google.com/search?q=SHE%3A+002502&oq=SHE%3A+002502&aqs=chrome..69i57j69i58.238j0j9&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8
