Apple also revealed a few other tidbits about its current situation and future plans during its earnings call. Here are some highlights.
- Apple is limiting travel to business-critical areas in light of the coronavirus outbreak in China. While it has some supply partners in Wuhan, Apple says it has alternate suppliers lined up.
- Apple’s Services are helping out its hardware. The company attributed some of its strong iPhone numbers to the Apple Card’s monthly payment plans.
- Apple says it’s measuring Apple TV+ success on number of subscribers. On the other hand, it added that the “product” largely comes down to storytelling, which isn’t defined by subscribers but by critical acclaim.
- While Tim Cook wouldn’t comment on Apple’s future products or plans for 5G, he did note that Apple is “excited” about the company’s pipeline.
