2. Apple put an iPhone in everybody’s pocket — now its growth depends on putting devices all over our bodies – CNBC

Since 2012, the iPhone has accounted for over half of Apple’s revenue for every single quarter. But that streak broke when Apple reported earnings on Tuesday: Its biggest product accounted for only 48% of total sales, and iPhone sales were actually down 12% from last year.
