Tim Cook's contract with Apple will expire at the end of 2021. But with what he has shown since replacing Steve Jobs when he died in 2011, there is no reason for Apple not to renew the contract with Tim Cook.

Bloomberg recently released a list of the world's highest-paid CEOs in 2019. Accordingly, the CEO of the famous technology group Apple is said to have earned more than $133 million last year. This includes $3 million in salary, $7.7 million in bonuses, $122.2 million in stock bonuses and over $884 million in title privileges. With a "terrible" income, Tim Cook ranked second on the list, after only $595.3 million of Tesla CEO - Elon Musk.

Another CEO who runs the company in the direction of smartphones, tablets, smart watches and similar products named in the rankings is Sundar Pichai - CEO of Alphabet (Google's parent company). He came in 8th place after bringing the company $86.2 million in revenue in 2019. Sundar Pichai's annual salary is $650,000, but his income is greatly increased thanks to 82.2 million USD stock bonus, and $3.4 million for title privileges.

At Microsoft, CEO Satya Nadella last year received only $77.3 million in total income and ranked 9th. The salary of Microsoft CEO is $ 2.3 million, he received an additional $ 10.8 million in bonuses, $64 million from stakes and $ 111,400 for titles.

Sarah Anderson, director of the Global Economic Project at the Institute for Policy Studies said: "While paying too much for workers can be dangerous held on Walls because of systemic risk, the sky-high salaries of most major corporations in the US have the potential to increase a number of social and environmental threats. I think this has been ignored."

A number of stock bonuses were given to CEOs years ago and are now beginning to circulate. Part of the $122.2 million share bonus Tim received last year was linked to the 1 million shares he received in 2011. It was part of a proposal package for the CEO after his replacement, so Steve Jobs ran the company a second, final time at Apple. The first time was in 2009, when Jobs stopped working. In August 2011, the former CEO officially resigned.

However, the company's board of directors needed a stabilization after Jobs's departure and came to a decision to give Cook $383 million worth of shares at the time. Less than two months later, the founder of Apple, Steve Jobs died.

Other titles on Apple's board of directors will also receive large sums of money in 2019, including Senior Vice President and Chief Financial Officer Luca Maestri ($25.2 million), Senior Vice President and Advisors. General Kate Adams (25.2 million USD), Vice President of Retail Division Deirdre O'Brien (19.2 million USD), CEO Jeff Williams (25.2 million) and former Vice President of Retail Division Angela Ahrendts (22.3 million). All of these earnings include stock rewards. Angela Ahrendts has left Apple.

Four of the top 10 highest-paid CEOs of the technology industry last year, in which Intel CEO Robert Swan with a total revenue of $99 million, ranked seventh in the list.

Apple's board of directors has reason enough for the huge earnings payments of key positions, because most of the bonus is based on stock value. With Apple's stock closing at the all-time highs last week, the company's leaders deserve to be commended for their efforts to make investors profitable.

Cook's contract with Apple will expire at the end of 2021. As the general manager, Cook was responsible for monitoring iPhone changes such as increasing the screen size, putting into use OLED panels, FaceID and rabbit ears ... He also ran the company when it launched popular products like the Apple Watch and AirPods.

There is no reason not to expect Tim Cook will continue to accompany Apple for another 10 years. Meanwhile, we will continue to see him introduce the future Apple Glass product, a breakthrough of AR technology which will be launched in 2022 or 2023.

In the ordinary business context, we can think of a new contract with more incentives for Tim Cook, including more stock bonuses. But at the moment, when the salaries of senior executives are more scrutinized than ever, let's wait and see which new deal will be agreed with the next CEO.

Apple is about to officially launch a new generation of iPhones with the expected name of iPhone 12 series. This generation of iPhone 12 series will have many changes both inside and outside.

Accordingly, the iPhone 12 series is expected to support 5G connectivity, the notch will be smaller and more. Of course, Apple will also upgrade the RAM level of the upcoming iPhone 12 series.

On July 10, a tipster 有 没有 搞 措 revealed in a tweet, claiming that Apple will upgrade the RAM for the Pro version of the 12-inch iPhone series to 6GB.

However, previous news and of course, recent comments have said that Apple is expected to launch up to four versions of the iPhone 12 series namely:
  • iPhone 12 with a 5.4 inch screen
  • iPhone 12 with a 6.1-inch screen (succeeds iPhone 11)
  • iPhone 12 Pro with a 6.1-inch screen (succeeding iPhone 11 Pro)
  • iPhone 12 Pro Max with 6.7 inch screen (succeeds iPhone 11 Pro Max)

According to recent news, both iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max models can be equipped with 6GB RAM, while the remaining two models will only have 4GB RAM. However, this information is still likely to be misleading so we still need to wait for the coming weeks to have more details.

Hence, the new generation of iPhones will still be announced in September, but sources familiar with the matter said that there will still be delays with some iPhone models in the iPhone 12 series.

A reputable analyst said that the price of the iPhone 12 will be $50 higher than the old iPhone generation even without the EarPods or charger included with the box.

Although there have been many rumors pointed out, Apple will not offer earphones or chargers on the iPhone 12 series this year. However, according to a well-known analyst, iPhone prices will even increase slightly by $50 compared to the iPhone 11 series.

In a revelation to MacRumors , analyst Jeff Pu predicted that the price of iPhone 12 will be from 749 USD for the 5.4 inch model, compared to 699 USD of iPhone 11. This analyst said that the price increase is mainly due to the iPhone 12 line equipped with full-screen OLED and 5G network support. In contrast, the lowest model of iPhone 11 series still uses LCD.

Jeff Pu believes that the price of the iPhone 12 will increase by $50 because the 5G network is temporarily acceptable to a large number of users. However, if Apple really removes the charger and headset bundled with the device, it will be a controversial decision and upset the huge user community.

If based on Pu's prediction, the starting price of iPhone 12 model (6.1 inch) will be from 799 USD or 849 USD. So those who want to own an iPhone model similar to the iPhone 11 will have to pay a larger price from $100-150. In other words, the starting price of the Pro and Pro Max models can be from $999 and $1,099.

However, Pu's prediction is quite contradictory with previous rumors by leaker Jon Prosser who shared the starting price of the iPhone 12 line from $649.

In recent times, many sources have revealed that Apple will remove the charger in the box of iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro. However, one more surprise is that Samsung seems to be planning the same.

Specifically, according to ET News, Samsung is discussing plans to remove the charger from all its smartphone models. Currently, the Korean smartphone company has not made a final decision yet. However, if approved, this plan could be implemented right next year.

According to the source, Samsung believes it has supplied consumers with too many chargers in the past decade. This means that most buyers no longer need a new charger, facilitating transportation and limiting the generation of electronic waste.

In addition, removing the charger can help Samsung lower the price of each smartphone. This will make up for the 5G connection on Galaxy models, which has been causing smartphone devices to be "priced" in recent times.

Thus, in the nearest case, Galaxy S21 launched early next year may be the first device sold without a charger. In addition, by removing the charger from the box, Samsung smartphones will be more competitively priced, in some "fierce" markets like India.

Before a new iPhone is officially launched, we often saw models created based on leaked drawings and specifications, models designed so that case makers could create the product first when the machine released.

Macrumors has taken the model of the iPhone 12 series, which gives us a close look at the design of the device and the various size options.

According to what happened in previous years, models like this are very similar to the official design. The iPhone 12 model also coincides with rumors over the years, so we can expect this design to appear when the iPhone 12 launches.

Apple is expected to launch four iPhone 12 models, which includes a 5.4-inch iPhone 12 version, a 6.1-inch iPhone 12 version, a 6.1-inch iPhone 12 Pro and an iPhone 12 Pro Max 6.7.

All iPhone 12 versions have the same design as the iPhone 4 and newer iPad Pro, with a flat frame, a glass back. However, Macrumors models also show the same thing.

The 5.4-inch iPhone will be the smallest iPhone since the iPhone SE launched, it's even smaller than the 2020 iPhone SE (4.7 inches), despite having a larger screen.

The 6.7-inch version is Apple's largest screen ever, and when placed next to the 6.5-inch iPhone 11 Pro Max you'll notice the difference.

iPhone 11 Pro Max vs iPhone 12 Pro Max model
Two versions of 5.4 and 6.1 inches are expected to have dual cameras, two more advanced versions have 3 cameras. There are also rumors that Apple will equip LiDAR camera as on iPad Pro for iPhone 12 Pro, but we do not see this detail on the model. Apple is also expected to make the notch smaller, and this does not appear on the model.

IPhone 12 and iPad Pro models
As mentioned above, this model is for case makers to know the size and pre-production of components, they only focus on the overall size, details like the number of rear cameras and the size. Also, the size of the front camera doesn't matter, as long as the overall is correct. Therefore, it is not possible to determine whether the two rumors are true or false based on a model.

Another notable design change is the new cut under the power button on some models, arguably necessary for the device's 5G antenna. All 2020 iPhones are expected to support 5G.

There have been a lot of rumors surrounding Apple working on a new AR glass called Apple Glass. Although this AR glass has not been confirmed by Apple, but in recent times, a lot of leaked information has been shared on the internet.

However, at the present time, we still can not imagine the design, structure, features and how Apple Glass works. Recently, on Hacker 34 have posted video showing the idea of ​​what Apple Glass will look like, how it works, and above all its user interface.

The video starts when Apple Glass starts up connecting to the iPhone, similar to how AirPods connect. Next, the Hacker 34 immediately moved to an analysis of possible components in Apple Glass such as screens, LiDAR sensors (like you see on the iPad Pro 2020 and potentially the upcoming iPhone 12), New G-series chipset and more.

The video also mentions rOS instead of glassOS, which was previously leaked as the name of the operating system on Apple Glass. Accordingly, users will only need to use gestures such as hand swipe to switch between content tabs.

Apple Glass will also have icons and widgets just like iOS 14, the smooth interface that is simple and easy to use. In addition, rOS also has a Dark Mode, which helps Apple Glass users see clearly without any distractions when used in high-light environments.

Hacker 34 also introduced the use of Apple Maps and Find My iPhone on Apple Glass, users simply need to ask Siri to locate the iPhone and Apple Glass will automatically guide users to the iPhone's location via Apple Maps.

Apple Maps will display arrows in the field of view, which will make it easier to find lost iPhones. Readers can see the details of the Apple Glass Concept video produced by the Hacker 34 below.

The video produced by Youtube the Hacker 34 has combined all the leaked information about Apple Glass in recent weeks. Please note that there is no definitive or official evidence from Apple confirming any information about Apple Glass, so if Apple's new AR glasses actually come out, it could be very different from the video of the Hacker 34. Apple Glass is said to cost $499 and will likely launch from 2021 or possibly 2022.
