Apple Clickbait Generator Version 2

Would you like some Lorem ipsum? Would you like it to be created by mashing together paragraphs taken at random from mediocre tech and finance articles? You’ve come to the right place. You can view generated output below or use it to create your own articles by accessing this JSON endpoint. This can be iterated through with some vanilla JavaScript as provided for on this reference implementation page. The code for this project is on GitHub.

I have collected the following real clickbait content:

A randomly generated article:

The European Union is pressing for binding measures that would require chargers to accommodate all types of mobile devices, with the goal being to reduce electronic waste and make the lives of consumers easier. That would probably mean Apple would be required to ditch the Lightning port in favor of USB-C if such regulation ever passes.

Analysts see the folding screen as a nod to fashion-focused consumers, while the 5G phones aim to give Samsung technology bragging rights over Apple.

Apple Pay transactions and revenue once more rose over 100% annually, with the annual run rate for transactions now above 15 billion. The total number of paid subscriptions that Apple either provides or takes a revenue cut on rose by another 30 million sequentially to over 480 million, and Apple now expects to have more than 600 million of them by year’s end.

Based on data from the China Academy of Information and Communications Technology (CAICT), Reuters reports that Apple sold 3.2 million iPhones in China in December. That's a nice bump of 18.5% over the prior-year period's 2.7 million units.

Outside of iPhones, Apple noted that Mac sales slipped 3.5% from last year to $7.16 billion, while iPad sales dropped 11.1% to $5.98 billion. China revenues, Apple said, were up 3.1% to $13.58 billion.

While production slowdowns driven by the virus outbreak may be manageable, Gillett says there's a chance it could impact near-term product launches, like the low-cost iPhone that's rumored to be in production. That product, which is said to be a successor to 2016's iPhone SE, was expected to go into production in February for a March launch date, according to Bloomberg.

"The next thing an attacker could try and do is brute force the key on the device, where they would only need to keep trying different passcodes since the hardware key is available. This doesn't work because Apple limits, again in the hardware, how many times and how fast you can try that. This is why iPhones are so incredibly secure — they protect your data on the device and off the device using this special hardware key and on-device limits on how fast and how many times you can try to access data with the wrong passcode before the device locks."

Apple hasn't sold the iPhone SE for nearly a year and a half. During that time other phone makers used a similar budget phone recipe to create compelling Android phones. One of the best budget phones I've used is the Moto G7, which costs $300. It has a Gorilla Glass 3 body, a modern small bezel design and runs Motorola's lightly customized version of Android. It doesn't have the best camera, a high refresh rate screen or a flagship processor. But those are smart trade-offs Motorola made to hit a ridiculously low price.

While it's easy to focus on hardware, Apple makes billions from selling services.

The tactics Apple used to launch its music service, in which rival Spotify was sometimes hard to find on Apple platforms, won’t work on video services even if the company wanted to try it, Amobi and others said. Apple does not offer comparable content to those competitors, and in any event, the iPhone isn’t nearly as popular for television viewing as it is for listening to music.
