According to a report from TrendForce on the production of smartphones this year, the total volume for the third quarter increased by 8% compared with the second quarter and amounted to approximately 380 million units. This growth is attributed to the gradual recovery of demand and creating inventory in connection with the release of new devices and the coming seasonal upturn in demand. Although the role of the main generators of sales analysts recognize the new devices from Apple and Huawei, the demand for iPhone models XR XS and XS Max was lower than expected. This gives analysts reason to predict that the total volume of production in the fourth quarter will be about the same as in the third, that is, about 380 million units.

Analysts say that the smartphone market has reached maturity, and manufacturers are increasingly difficult to motivate consumers to replace a recently purchased device since the original no significant improvement.

The largest smartphone manufacturer in the world is Samsung. In the third quarter the South Korean company holds 19.6% of the market. The share of Huawei, in second place, equal to 14.6%. Third place belongs to Apple, which occupies 12.4% of the market.

Analysts believe that in the fourth quarter the balance of power may change. Apple will increase its share to 19.7%, ahead of Samsung, whose share will remain unchanged, that is equal to 19.6%. Third place will take Huawei, and its share will not change too. In other words, Apple will increase the share at the expense of companies outside the top three. This, in particular, the company Xiaomi, whose share will be reduced from 8.3% to 7.4%, and the company OPPO Vivo and whose shares, equal to 8.4% and 8.0%, reduced to 6.4% and 6.3%, respectively. The combined share of all other manufacturers is also reduced — from 28.7% to 26.1%.

Apple Fixes FaceTime Flaw, Compensates Teen Who Found It

Apple on Thursday rolled out the iOS 12.1.4 update to fix a Group FaceTime bug that let users hear audio of the callee before they answer.

iDevice owners should upgrade their operating system ASAP to avoid prying eyes—and ears.

First reported by 9to5Mac last week, the glitch made it easy to eavesdrop on contacts. Simply start a FaceTime video chat, swipe up from the bottom to choose “Add Person,” type in your own phone number, and listen.

Before the patch, hackers could overhear anything the person’s mobile microphone picked up, not to mention see anything their front-facing camera detected.

Now, after more than a week offline, Cupertino has reinstated Group FaceTime, sans unintentional spyware.

The update is available for iPhone 5S and later, iPad Air and later, and iPod touch 6th generation.

Release notes claim a “logic issue existed” in Group FaceTime, which was fixed “with improved state management.” As of Thursday evening, Apple’s System Status page noted the app had been restored.

The tech titan credited Daven Morris of Arlington, Texas, as well as Catalina Foothills High School student Grant Thompson—who with his mother Michele led Apple to turn off group chat during its investigation.

In return, the firm will compensate the Thompson family and make a monetary gift toward 14-year-old Grant’s education, according to Reuters, which did not publish exact figures.

It’s been a rough week for Apple, which faces multiple lawsuits and questions from lawmakers over the FaceTime incident.

Add to that the headline-making news that some iOS apps record users’ activity without permission, blatantly skirting Apple’s guidelines, and you’ve got what I’d call a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad start to 2019.
