A quick answer to a problem
Even though the partnership is not Apple’s first approach into the business environment, it has come as a response to the first sales drop Iphone was facing.
After a 13 year run on the top of the sales Apple’s sales declined 13 percent to $50.6 billion of its top product, the Iphone. The company stated that they sold 16 percent less Iphones that in the same quarter last year.
Tim Cook Apple’s CEO assured the issue was just a pause in the company while stating “This, too, shall pass” when discussing the results with a Wall Street analyst, according to the New York Post.
The quarter results were shorter of what Wall Street was expecting wiping out about $47 billion in the stock market, since the shares were reduced to an 8 percent.
