Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) designs, manufactures and retails mobiles and other  communication media devices as well as personal computers and portable digital music players. The Apple Inc. products include the “iPhone,” “iPad,” “iMac,” MacBook,” “iPod,” “Apple Watch,” and “Apple TV.” Apple CEO Tim Cook plans to launch new consumer and professional software applications under their  “iOS,” “OS X,” and “WatchOS” operating systems, as well as a cloud computing service under “iCloud” and a digital wallet service through “Apple Pay.”

In 2015, Apple’s revenue rose to almost $233.7 billion with 28% growth over fiscal year 2014. Apple’s 2015 net income was $53.4 billion, 35% more than its 2014 net income of $39.5 billion.

For 2016, analysts expect revenue to fall to $227.4 billion with a predicted 2.7% revenue decline.
