How Trump’s Huawei Ban May Affect Apple And Other American Tech Companies by TechCapon(m): 3:25pm On May 22, 2019

It’s no longer news that Trump has effectively placed a ban on all American companies from doing business with Huawei. Tech giants like Google, Qualcomm, Intel etc were all forced to cancel all pending transaction with the Chinese giant. This move will no doubt deliver a crushing on Huawei’s smartphone business as it means all future Huawei smartphones will not be able to run on Android platform and will miss key services like Google play store, Facebook, Youtube, Whatsapp, etc. Even if it runs on Android, it will be the public version although Google has extended the deadline by 90 days.

However, the company has come out to dismiss the ban as a small setback for the company. Founder of Huawei says president Trump under estimates Huawei and that the company was already prepared for this situation a long time ago. Analysts say that Huawei plans to launch its own Operating System that will work just like Android and also support all Android Apps such as Facebook, Youtube and so on. Meanwhile, reports suggest that Huawei has been stockpiling chips ahead of the ban. The company has a huge stockpile of processors that will sustain it in the next few months.

HUGE FINANCIAL LOSS TO AMERICAN TECH GIANTS



Huawei is the world’s second largest smartphone seller after Samsung. Huawei does not manufacture most of its smartphone components. They rely heavily on American tech companies like Qualcomm and Intel to supply its components worth billions of dollars.

No company in the world would ever be happy to lose ties with such a giant company. Not even Google, Huawei has made a great contribution to the success of Google OS all around the world.

BOYCOTT OF APPLE PRODUCTS IN CHINA



China is the biggest smartphone market in the world. Almost all major smartphone company make a large chunk of their profits from China including Apple. Report coming from China is that there’s a movement by angry groups to boycott all Apple products in China. If that happens, Apple will lose nothing less than 20% of all Apple revenue. Huawei is seen as a national champion in China and trying to destroy it will certainly not go down well with the people of China.

CHINA MAY RETALIATE BY BANNING ALL APPLE PRODUCTS



The same way Apple is valuable in the US, that’s the same way Huawei is valuable in China. What most people don’t know is that all Apple smartphones are made and assembled in China. The Chinese government has the power to place restrictions on the production and sales of all Apple products in China. This move will effectively wipe billions of dollars in profit from Apple and make the few Apple devices available to be very expensive.

There’s no doubt the Huawei ban will cause a reduction in the demand for the smartphone in the future but they’re not the only ones to be affected. Tech companies all depend on one another and if one is affected, somehow all others are affected as well.

Lol, If only Trump knows what he is doing...
China accounts for 70% of production of many "rare earth minerals" mostly used in Battery production...
News had it that it plans to cut Tesla's supply of these materials used in making batteries for its electric cars...

Punishing Tesla may just be the first form of retaliation...
China knows that many of its citizens are employed by Foxconn which produce Apple's products... They may end up making their citizens lose jobs and you know that since Tim Cook has been complaining of how the US-China trade war has affected them he may be already making plans to shift IPhones production to India...
India has been eyeing Apple ever since with incentives that will make them push production to India...
Meanwhile Tesla as much as I know hasnt kicked off its Chinese plant!!

ZTE that did settled case with US, where are they today in the tech world?. I have use one China phone(China Mobile) which I bought by mistake anyway, but I can tell you that phone was the most fluid phone I have ever use, the ram is just 2gb and it ran yunos, though no Google service,i use my browser for mails and YouTube, who Gmail and YouTube app, and it run all Android apps. So it is a case of America shooting it self in the foot. China are self sustaining nation.

if Apple is punished by China, China will suffer the effects more than even Apple.
Thousands of jobs will be lost in China, when Apple moves production of Iphones, Ipads and Macbooks out of China,and not to forget, banning Apple will make many other American and European companies manufacturing in China feel unsafe, so many of them will exit China too, and a million Chinese jobs will be gone with 'em.

Huawei will be used as a sacrifice in this trade war, China has other indigineous smartphone brands, and wouldn't want to harm 'em, by fighting Trump over Huawei, Huawei can now focus on manufacturing telecom. Equipment and leave phone mata for Xiaomi,Oppo, Vivo etc
