4 top takeaways from Apple’s boringly brilliant record results

It’s gotten to the point where even some of my colleagues who write about Apple are bored by the company’s quarterly results.

We’ve heard it straight from Apple: macOS and iOS aren’t merging together. Instead, Apple is going to bring the iOS app platform to the Mac in 2019.
