Apple is doing just fine selling over 50 million phones last quarter.

They sold about 9 million iPads last quarter.

Apple gets $4 for their MFi and Lighting licensing per product sale don't they?

It's no wonder Apple has not gone to USB-C on their highest volume products.

Macs sold a little over 4 million units last quarter.

The article is just about how Anker makes superior charging accessories, and it mentions how Apple has largely ceded the market due to indifference. You can save the "Apple is not doomed!" boilerplate for another comment thread.

I find it interesting how they get trapped by the good reviews of their older products and it seems like hardest part of their business is remaining visible to customers.

Attention doled out by the platforms is more and more a premium resource.

You just made my day, I cracked up.

Then I promptly wrote a 'W' and a 'SP' on two Anker batteries I have as spares for a couple of my phones.

I'm going to call those phones Wanker and Spanker from now on.
