Wednesday Highlights: A 29% drop in Apple earnings is what Goldman predicts from China-US trade war troubles, and now Apple's brand being seen as embarrassing in China as iPhone users opt for in-country brands like Huawei; Apple pledges to warn UK iPhone users of potential impact an update may have on device; Apple announces June 3 for WWDC Keynote at San Jose Convention Center; and the WebKit project reveals Apple's plan to bring privacy features to ad tracking; AppleInsider takes FileMaker Pro 18 on a run-through highlighting new features; United Nations says assistants like Siri and Alexa "reinforce harmful gender bias" with female voices by default; new MacBook Pro's come with newer keyboard design, though free repairs come with purchase just in case, Sean Hollister says this "is reassuring and worrying at the same time".
