Otta's take

Xav Kearney headshot

Xav Kearney

CTO of Otta

With a market capitalisation that reached $3 trillion in 2022, Apple is the world's most valuable company. A vertically integrated approach and obsessive focus on the user experience have helped to make Apple one of the most successful companies in the world.

Since taking over at Apple, Tim Cook has been carefully curating the company's reputation as a champion of consumer privacy, trying to set the company apart from others that monetise their users' data.

The company even went as far as to introduce sweeping privacy changes which made it difficult to tailor ads to Apple’s 1bn+ iPhone users. This rocked the $400bn digital ads market, seriously harming the revenue of its bigger rivals in the lucrative industry and forcing them to rebuild their ad infrastructure.

Despite this, the company has been shaken by supply chain issues and moved a considerable amount of its manufacturing from China to India, and increased its Vietnam presence. This is because of multi-pronged production disruption in China, the second largest customer market for Apple, and triggered an estimated 10% revenue drop in the first quarter of 2023.
