May 3 - Issue #77

Apple is on the media offensive. Not pleased with the bashing and reduced sales from their latest iOS based products, Apple has strategically used their growth in other areas, with other products and services, to show the market how they are both solid with cash (over $250 billion) and growing.

The news flow is also very strategic, as they are using the media to show that their efforts with Airpods, where demand is high, and how Apple Watch and services revenue are all contributing to the revenue growth. 
Read through those stories to see the approach Apple is taking and then take a look at the rest of the news, including T-Mobile’s 5G angle, all in today’s Comunicano!
