Vision Pro won't become Apple's main profit driver anytime soon

According to Bloomberg, Apple said in a conference call with analysts last week that revenue during this year's holiday sales period will be "similar to last year" and that revenue is expected to be roughly flat or even fall again. The company's revenue may be the fifth consecutive year. quarterly decline.

In search of new revenue growth engines, Apple is preparing to enter the mixed reality and electric vehicle markets.

Among them, the Vision Pro headset, which will be launched early next year, is highly anticipated. However, according to Apple's description of its "slow sales method", this product will not become its main profit growth point for some time.

"We're only launching it in our stores," Cook said during Apple's fourth-quarter earnings call. He further elaborated, "We're going to have demos in stores, and it's going to be a very different take-out experience than normal." "Just go" process.

According to previous reports from Bloomberg, Apple plans to require shoppers to make an appointment to pick up the goods and try on Vision Pro. Apple retail stores will also set up a dedicated Vision Pro experience area.

Apple may eventually change its sales strategy for the headset, but the Vision Pro is a complex product, with different headband sizes and, for those who wear glasses, custom prescription lens attachments.

In addition, because its price is as high as $3,500, it also requires consumers to spend more time accepting and adapting.

Porsche China CEO: China’s current market size is not yet able to support local production of Porsche

Yesterday, at the 6th Shanghai International Import Expo, Porsche China CEO Michael Kirsch said that the current sales volume and scale of Porsche in the Chinese market cannot support the domestic production of Porsche.

Michael Kirsch said: "Porsche is a luxury brand, so we will not simply mass-produce it. We will pay more attention to customers' personalized options and special needs. For domestic production, we will continue to pay attention and evaluate it."

As early as 2018, Obermaugh, then CEO of Porsche and now chairman of the board of directors of the Volkswagen Group, pointed out: "Porsche's total output is not large, and it will be even less when broken down into various car series. Therefore, it is not necessary to start production in China." Not cost-effective."

At the same time, he said, "If Porsche's annual sales of a single model in China exceed 100,000 units in the future, we will also have plans."

However, the latest delivery data shows that Porsche's performance in the Chinese market was weak in the first three quarters of 2023, with deliveries of only 60,700 vehicles, a year-on-year decrease of 12%.

On November 1, He Xiaopeng talked about the AEB function in an interview with the media, "A friend of mine talked about AEB, and I think 99% of it is fake. It is a fake. Our people also asked, and its AEB cannot be turned on at all. There are too many accidental braking incidents on the road."

 Turing Award winner Yoshua Bengio: Big tech companies can’t be allowed to set the rules for AI

According to Business Insider, Yoshua Bengio, a Canadian computer scientist who has won the Turing Award and is known as the "Godfather of AI," said:

The possibility that the AI ​​industry will be controlled by a few technology companies will be the "second problem" after the existential risks posed by this technology.

He mentioned in an interview that we should all be worried about the concentration of power in the AI ​​field. The arrival of ChatGPT and increasingly powerful AI systems has made him even more worried about this issue – who controls the AI ​​system.

"Governments need to make sure they don't just listen to tech companies when setting rules. When it comes to regulation, they should listen to independent voices and make sure public safety and ethical considerations are at the center," Bengio warned.

New product

Apple expected to refresh entire iPad product line next year

According to Bloomberg reporter Mark Gurman, Apple plans to update its entire iPad product line in 2024.

This means new iPad Pro, iPad Air, iPad mini and entry-level iPads are expected to launch next year.

Gurman said in the latest issue of his Power On newsletter: "Apple could have tried to launch more new products, but the improved iPad and AirPods were not ready yet. The company plans to refresh its entire iPad product line in 2024. New AirPods will also be launched next year, and an updated Pro model will be launched in 2025."

Gurman previously reported that the entry-level iPad will be updated as early as March 2024, and he expects the new 11-inch and 13-inch iPad Pro models equipped with M3 chips and OLED screens to be launched in the first half of 2024.

The next-generation iPad Air and iPad mini may be equipped with M2 and A16 Bionic chips respectively and are expected to arrive sometime in 2024.

The first Apple M3 Pro chip benchmark is released

According to MacRumors, the new 14-inch MacBook Pro model equipped with the M3 Pro chip has appeared on Geekbench.

Geekbench 6 benchmarks show that the new M3 Pro chip has slightly faster CPU performance compared to the M2 Pro chip.

The results show that the M3 Pro has a base frequency of 4.05GHz, a single-core score of 3035, and a multi-core score of 15173. This means that the M3 Pro is 14% faster than the M2 Pro in single-core performance, but only 6% faster in multi-core performance.

Both M3 Pro and M2 Pro use 12-core CPUs, but M3 Pro only has 6 performance cores + 6 energy efficiency cores, while M2 Pro has 8 performance cores + 4 energy efficiency cores.

Therefore, although M3 Pro is manufactured using TSMC's 3nm process, compared with M2 Pro's 5nm process, the performance improvement brought by this chip is weakened due to the lack of 2 performance cores.
