Apple is a Victim of Its Own Success

(San Francisco)

Apple has been an extraordinarily successful company, but despite its awe-inspiring commercial performance, it continues to be plagued by doubts. The Wall Street Journal has taken a contemplative approach and published an article reflecting on just how strong Apple has been and how its current issues seem to stem purely from its own success. The iPhone has been a mammoth force in China, and the iPhone has achieved almost $1 tn in sales worldwide since its debut, yet it has been so popular in Asia that many analysts worry the company is overly reliant on sales in the region. The iPhone has also overshadowed all of Apple's other products, though it has largely given birth to the company's sustainable and quick-growing services business.

FINSUM : The media and analysts like to knock Apple, but the reality is that it is the most successful consumer company in the world. The irony, though, is that fact only adds to the pressure for the company's new 10th anniversary iPhone 8.
