Last Monday, it was reported that US firms grew more concerned with efforts by Chinese firms to acquire their intellectual property rights. All eyes are now on Huawei Technologies, which the US government recently accused of stealing trade secrets, and it looks like Apple is just one of Hauwe's major goals.
Earlier today, Patently Apple wrote a report on Huawei's new folding smartphone and noted how Huawei's CEO Richard Yu went out of his way to compare their new Mate X to Apple's iPhone XS Max, even though they are not in the same smart phone category. Mate X is a foldable smartphone. It was almost an obsession.
Monday's report from The information noted that "The US Department of Law said that Huawei had a formal program that rewarded employees for stealing information, with bonuses that increased based on the confidential value of the information. Huawei employees were urged to post stolen information on an internal company website, and they were also given an email address where they could send the information, which was then reviewed by what was known internally as the "competition management team." Huawei assured employees that they would not punished for taking such action, the accusation said.
Later in the report The information noted that "In another event, Huawei is suspected of copying a contact Apple evolved in 201
A similar component, made of 13 equal parts mounted in the same way, appeared last year in Huawei's MateBook Pro, which was released as a competitor to Apple's MacBooks, the person said. Apple provided a patent for the component in 2016, and it's still on hold.
Huawei approached several Apple vendors with expertise who did the component and gave them the same schematic.

Huawei Updates MateBook X Pro
Talking about Huawei's notebook, earlier today Huawei introduced its next-generation MateBook X Pro today under their lead role in Barcelona.
OneHop: Smart file and notebook file transfers
A new feature is called OneHop that allows a Huawei phone user to just press OneHop decal on the MateBook X Pro wrist rest and get videos, photos or documents instantly transferred. The demos were super fast.
From the keynote demo it turned out that Huawei's new OneHop function for transferring files from a phone to a laptop is much easier than Apple's AirDrop, which uses several steps to achieve it same thing as shown in AirDrop videos here or here.
Intel's VP Client Computing group came on stage today and made it clear that they were thrilled to be partnering with Huawei.
This week, Axios was told by Intel that Apple would switch to ARM processors in the future.
If Apple is working on Intel on this project, it's not known now. Intel has an ARM license and can provide x86 emulation for ARM. Intel warned Qualcomm last year not to introduce x86 to its Snapdragon chips without a license from them, and so may Apple.
As a side, Huawei has the brand in China that can boost the MateBook notes enough to bypass Apple's current volume. It would help Intel with Apple losses.
