“Apple Inc. Chief Executive Tim Cook takes the stage Monday night at WSJDLive, The Wall Street Journal’s global technology conference,” Daisuke Wakabayashi reports for The Wall Street Journal. “Mr. Cook’s appearance comes at a critical moment for Apple. It just released a pair of new iPhones, the successors to a pair of smartphones that propelled the company to record profits. That success has also raised the bar for Apple; some analysts question whether iPhone sales – the company’s primary profit engine – may soon dip below year-ago levels.”
“Apple’s chief also may face questions about the impact on its bottom line from slowing economic growth in China, the world’s largest smartphone market and Apple’s second-largest market by revenue,” Wakabayashi reports. “In what is expected to be a wide-ranging discussion with Journal editor Gerard Baker, Mr. Cook is likely to be asked about Apple’s future products, including the much-discussed project to build an electric car.”
Wakabayashi reports, “The Journal’s personal-technology columnists, Geoffrey Fowler and Joanna Stern, will live blog the conversation from the floor of the conference hall. The Journal will have video clips and news coverage shortly after the session, which is expected to begin around 11:30 p.m ET.”
