Apple believes climate change could benefit its iPhone business
One of the companies cited in the report was Apple, who believes that as the world begins to “experience severe weather events with greater frequency,” people will start to feel the need for “confidence and preparedness in the arena of personal safety.” This is where the iPhone comes into play as users will become more reliant on their devices.
No further comments were provided on the matter but it certainly seems as though Apple hopes to capitalize on climate change as much as possible. This should help maintain a large install base which, in turn, could continue the growth of Apple’s Services business.
While on the topic of Services, the Silicon Valley-based company recently teased new services related to health that could arrive later this year, presumably alongside the next-gen iPhones. Apple is also expected to launch its own video streaming service later this year in the hope of competing against Netflix and Hulu.
