Apple Named World’s Most Innovative Company By Fast Company

Apple Named World's Most Innovative Company By Fast Company

This week the Fast Company published its annual rankings of the 50 most innovative companies in the world and this year Apple has received a first-place position thanks to its range of integrated hardware and software which includes the iPhone X, the Apple Watch Series 3 and ARKit to name a few. As you probably already know Apple designs its own processes that are optimised for its operating systems resulting in performance that hugely exceeds the competition.

Last year Apple was ranked fourth in the 2017 Innovative Company list. The Fast Company explains more about why they have awarded Apple, the world’s most Innovative Company, “Creativity is more than skin deep–and Apple’s approach to the hardware and software engineering that creates its experiences has never been more ambitious. Other makers of phones and tablets buy the same off-the-shelf chips as their competitors. Apple, by contrast, designs its own chips–so an iPhone packs a processor designed specifically optimized for Apple’s operating system, apps, display, camera, and touch sensor. The company has gotten so good at chip design that the A10 Fusion inside the iPhone 7 trounces rival processors in independent speed benchmarks.”

To check out the full list of 2018 Innovative Companies which include companies such as Netflix, Square, Tencent, Amazon, Patagonia, CVS Health, The Washington Post, Spotify, and the NBA, jump over to the official Fast Company website by following the link below.

Apple HomePod Gets A New Tutorial Video

Apple HomePod

We have already seen a number of tutorial videos for the Apple HomePod. Apple has now released a new one which is designed to help you get the most from your new Apple speaker.

The latest video shows how Siri can be used to perform a number of tasks, like playing music, listening to podcasts and more have a look at the video below.

We recently heard that the HomePod cost Apple $216 to make, the device retails for $349, which means that Apple is not making as much as it does on its other devices on the new speaker. We suspect Apple is selling it at a price lower than it normally would in an attempt to get the device into peoples homes.

Apple has some work to do with the HomePod if it wants to take on Amazon Alexa and Google Home devices as both have had a head start on Apple.
