Protect yourself from Coronavirus (COVID-19)

The best way to prevent the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic illness is by avoiding your exposure to the virus. Clean your hands often, use soap and water for at least 20 seconds or a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol to clean your hands more frequently.
Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands or after being in the public.
Avoid close contact with people who are sick. Maintain a safe distance between yourself and other people if COVID-19 is spreading in your community.
Stay home if you’re sick and take help from local health authorities and medical professionals.
Make sure to cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or use the inside of your elbow when you cough or sneeze. Properly dispose the used tissues in the trash, and immediately clean your hands with soap and water or a hand sanitizer.
Wear a face mask if you are sick or if you are around other people (e.g., sharing a room or vehicle) and before you enter a healthcare provider’s office. Do not wear a face mask unless you are caring for someone who is sick.

Apple's A7 chipset is manufactured by Samsung and M7 co-processor by NXP Semiconductors

Well one of the biggest rivalries in the smartphones market for a few years have been firing up between the American multinational corporation company, Apple and the South Korean multinational electronics company, Samsung.

And now as the Apple's new iPhones has hit the store shelves a couple of days ago, there also came up an interesting breakdown from a reliable source, confirming that the Apple's 2013 flagship, the iPhone 5S's processor, the A7 is manufactured in the Samsung's labs. The tear-down also led to the conclusion that the M7 co-processor is made by NXP Semiconductors, Netherlands.

It was previously reported the American company has signed a deal with the Taiwanese Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC) for the production of their future SoC's. But as we are aware, the Americans are still depending on the South Koreans for powering up their 2013 flagship, the iPhone 5S.
