‘Ringer PhD’: Why Is Apple Worth $1 Trillion?

The company that started out as a tech startup in a garage in California is now worth more than $1 trillion. How did Apple get to this point and where can it go from here?

This episode of Ringer PhD tracks Apple’s transformation from a garage-based startup to a cultural icon worth more than $1 trillion. Apple’s innovative products have put the company at the top of a crowded tech field, though competitors like Amazon and Google are finding their own ways to win over consumers and market share. That competition, mixed with uncertainty in burgeoning tech industries and a desire to catch up in the streaming content wars, means that Apple faces some formidable challenges to stay on top.
