Marketplace Morning Report

with David Brancaccio

Is China’s economy or the iPhone itself hitting Apple hardest?

January 03, 2019

From the BBC World Service … Apple’s warning that China’s economic slowdown is hitting iPhone sales has spooked markets around the world.

We’ll take you there to find out why. Today's show is sponsored by IndeedPitney Bowes and Wasabi Hot Cloud Storage
