After the article published by the Bloomberg Businessweek about the possession of serves with spy chips bought from China’s government, by Apple and 30 other companies, the hedge fund Greenlight Capital announced that Apple has now purchased the company`s stake due to the Chinese pressure to the  U.S. tariffs.

A survey showed 91,000 consumers in the time period from March to September. 70% of iPhone users were clear and convinced that they will not change the company in their future smartphone purchase while 15% want to go for Samsung’s Galaxy smartphones. The results also showed that 33% of people are looking forward to upgrading to iPhone.
