Demand for iPhone 15 Pro Max is strong, and shipments are expected to be extended to November

Last Friday, the iPhone 15 series officially opened for pre-order, and the shipment time of some popular models has been postponed to October or even November.

Analyst Ming-Chi Kuo noted in his latest report that demand for the iPhone 15 Pro Max is strong, surpassing last year’s iPhone 14 Pro Max.

He said that the waiting time for iPhone 15 Pro Max is longer than other models, but this is not entirely due to strong demand. "Due to the late mass production plan, the current shipment volume of iPhone 15 Pro Max is low and production challenges More obvious than other models."

Regarding other models, Kuo Ming-Chi said that demand for iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus is roughly the same as last year. At the same time, demand for iPhone 15 Pro is weak, perhaps because "more high-end users are turning to iPhone 15 Pro Max" this year.

Information from Apple’s official website shows that the iPhone 15 Pro Max original color and white models are facing the most serious delays, and the shipping time is expected to be extended to mid-November.

The long holiday is approaching, and bookings at popular domestic hotels have soared by more than 500%

Reports indicate that Nvidia’s H100 AI GPU shipments reached 900 tons in the second quarter, approximately 300,000 units

NVIDIA's H100 AI GPU has become the new favorite in the industry, with sales hitting a record high. Research firm Omdia revealed that Nvidia's H100 graphics card shipments in the second quarter of 2023 were 900 tons.

Geely: Currently there are no specific plans to invest and build a factory in Indonesia

Yesterday, Geely Holdings responded to rumors of "producing electric vehicles in Indonesia."

Geely Holding Group issued a statement saying that it has been reported by many media recently that Geely intends to build an electric vehicle factory in Indonesia. These reports are highly inaccurate. Geely Holding Group hereby declares as follows:

"Although Geely is evaluating the development potential of Indonesia's new energy market and exploring opportunities to compete in the Indonesian market, it currently does not have any specific plans to invest in and build factories in Indonesia."

Geely said that Proton has long been the most important foundation for Geely's market development in the ASEAN region. In the future, Geely will continue to deepen cooperation with its strategic partner DRB-HICOM to jointly help Malaysia become an important development engine for new energy vehicles in ASEAN.

Earlier media reports stated that Indonesian Coordinating Minister for Maritime and Investment Luhut said that the Indonesian government hopes to attract Geely Automobile to build an electric vehicle factory in Indonesia.

Luhut revealed that the Indonesian government has offered to supply Geely with nickel ore, a key raw material for electric vehicle batteries, and Geely is "very interested" in the possibility of building a factory in Indonesia.

 It will take a generation to adapt to the technological changes of AI

Douglas Gurr, chairman of the Turing Institute, a London-based AI research center, said: "When new technologies disrupt various industries throughout history, it will take a long time for society to keep up with the changes brought about by all the breakthrough technologies."

In his view, the past three centuries have seen a transformative technology that changed the world roughly every 100 years, and with each previous change it took an entire generation to fully adapt. technology.

Douglas Gurr explains, "This is because jobs that most people are familiar with are suddenly called into question, and the transitional phase of new technologies causes labor to be replaced."

However, Douglas Gurr also said that once the "dust settles" and the technology reaches its full potential and influence, it will bring society's wealth, employment, etc. to a new level.

Douglas Gurr adds that technological change not only brings more wealth, but that wealth is always better distributed. He believes that artificial intelligence now has the potential to make society more prosperous and technologically proficient.
