Happy New Year!

An eventful, important year is about to begin for Apple. Even more so than 2019 which started with the App Store capping a record-breaking 2018 with blockbuster holiday week in which customers spent over $1.22 billion in the seven-day period between Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve, and saw the growth of Apple Pay (hitting Target, Taco Bell, and more), Deidre O’Brien taking over retail responsibilities for the departing Angela Ahrendts, the release of the all-new iPad Air and iPad mini, a speed bumped iMac with 2x performance boost, and the release of AirPods (2nd gen.).
