Allegations of discrimination spawn investigation into Apple Card credit lineslarryjw said:The issue I raised to myself as I was requesting the Apple Card:
First, don't know the information credit agencies get. I'm pretty sure they don't get any tax information, or have any idea of our net worth. I'm not sure they have access to investment accounts.
In any case, except for a few special accounts, my wife and I have joint accounts.
So, when credit worthiness is determined, they are determining that decision based on our joint financial interests. I got the Apple Card.
Now, if my wife requests the Apple Card, they cannot determine her credit worthiness independent from the determination of our credit worthiness when I signed up, otherwise they would be, in some sense, doubling the estimate of our credit worthiness.
Because the Apple Card account is not issued to spouses jointly, it makes sense that the first to get the Apple Card, gets the max, while the second spouse might get denied or a minimal limit.
The solution for Apple-GS is to tie both cards together into one account by default.
Regardless, the ruby' persons' argument lacks merit without far more information. My step father and mother were both making about $150, 000 a year and both had several million in the bank. My step father went to finance a car, and he didn't get that good of a rate because previously he had paid everything in cash so he didn't have a credit history.

In a clear case of user error, some reviewers attempted to remove a protective screen layer thinking it was a screen protector, causing the sensitive flexible panel below to malfunction.
Apparently it wasn’t that clear.

That’s fantastic.

"Everyone", meaning attention-whoring Youtubers and clickbait headlines. Anecdotally, not a single person I know has had KB issues with their 2016+ Macbooks.
I don't know anybody that hasn't had problems with them (although no outright failures yet) and didn't want to find myself in that supposed small percentage of users who do have problems requiring a repair. So far, these people are using thin strip's of paper to dislodge particles.
The repair extension program is a step in the right but repairing would mean downtime that I don't fancy.
As I am in no rush to upgrade I decided to wait it until new designs appear.
The reality is if Apple truly was having a significant repair problem with the keyboards, they would have redesigned them a long time ago. Apple knows better than anyone when it has a problem with repairs.
If anything Apple extended the warranty to appease people worried about the keyboards due to reporting.

"Cook didn't even mention the millions of Huawei Androids that were diverted from Western markets to the domestic Chinese market in a desperate rash of discounting promotions this year. That's pretty clearly because Huawei's phones are not being sold to iPhone users, despite the constant insistence that Huawei is somehow pushing Apple out of business in China, when clearly that's not the case. "
Please provide supporting links to back this claim up.
As for the supposed claim by certain watchers that Apple wouldn't be able to shift X series phones, why did Apple pay a 'penalty' clause to Samsung for not reaching the contracted orders for displays?
Clearly someone got their estimates very, very wrong.
Even if true, the rumor concerns OLED displays not LCD displays. It is quite possible that Apple over estimated the more expensive iPhone XS sales that have OLED displays, but under estimated the less expensive iPhone XS sales which don't use OLED displays. So if accurate, Apple could sell less XSs than thought thereby owing Samsung a penalty, but selling way more XRs then thought resulting in a net gain for Apple.
