APPLE AFTER STEVE JOBS
Senior Analyst, Vinay Gupta points to four core ways Apple has changed under Cook. He describes these as:
Diversity in decision making; A new found openness to acquisitions and collaborations;Making the company more investor friendly; Donating more to humanitarian projects. He sees these changes as an evolution for survival that comes with any change in leadership.
Other than this :
The share of profits in the smart phone business has gone up (76% to 87%).
That level of growth is slower than in periods under Mr. Jobs; for instance, between the holiday quarter of 2010 and the holiday quarter of 2011, iPhone sales rose by 130 percent.The iPhones growth under Mr. Cook has also lagged that of the wider Smartphone industry, which means thatApples market share has been in decline.
ConclusionApple will always be strongly associated with Steve Jobs but like any company, it needs to modify, diversify and progress to stay relevant in the global marketplace. At the present Tim Cook does seem to be doing that. And surely that is all it really matters.
