Seeds: New products aren’t the only reason Apple has been in the news recently. The EU recently demanded $14.5 billion that Apple supposedly owes Ireland due to the country’s low corporate taxes compared to the rest of the EU’s. However, Ireland wants to remain a country that welcomes investors and does not appear to want the money.
Core: Today, Apple unveiled the iPhone 7 and new Apple Watch. The camera in the phone will be upgraded, and the phone will feature speakers at the top and bottom of the phone. The phone will also be waterproof with a longer battery life, without a headphone jack. The watch will also be waterproof. In the past few months, sales for the iPhone have been declining, so undoubtedly the company is hoping this announcement will boost them to their previous stature.
Skin: While there is general excitement over the new devices, some are frustrated over the lack of headphone jack. If people purchase this phone and they want to listen to music privately they will have to purchase wireless earbuds.
Food For Thought: What do you think of the newly released products? What about the tax situation? Do you think other corporations face similar issues?
